I love being self employed because I am free to run my own schedule, among many other reasons that I’ll talk about in future articles. Up until a few months ago, my self employed work life was well-scheduled and flowing smoothly. For the most part this schedule was the same every day and once in a while something would come up where I would take time off, then get back to it. The events of the past few months have resulted in permanent changes with my schedule being out of whack and me not getting important business-related things done which results in income loss so it has been very important to work a solution to this problem.
It’s been better this past week because I’ve been making a daily task list and completing the tasks as I get time, since I’m not able to do my old schedule and have a set time for the tasks. With the events of the past few months I was not operating with a task list and important things were being missed so I’ve committed to writing my task list each morning. So far, I’m happy with the results.
When I write my task list, I write down priorities first, then extra things I can do that will advance me towards my goals. If I think of something that needs to be done in the future, I’ll set an alarm on my phone to remind me the day it needs to be done, then when the alarm goes off, I’ll write that task on my task list.
Writing tasks down, rather than relying on memory is helping me to get back on track and I encourage you to do this with any part of your life.
