I have such an incredible productivity tip for you today. If you want to increase your productivity – you should journal or create your “to do” list the night before. So…when you wake up you hit the ground running, the other thing is your brain works on things while you are sleeping.
I heard this from Shark Tank star Daymond John, who also wrote the book The Power of Broke, he writes down the things that he is working towards or obsessed with, so that his brain can start working on them.
I usually like to watch tv and do mind numbing activities before going to bed and as some of you may know I have been struggling with insomnia lately. I thought to myself maybe this journaling might help, Chalene Johnson also speaks to this and does her “to do” list the night before.
I decided to journal what I was grateful for and then jot down my goals and finally listed the goals I was working on at the time. Starting with what I was grateful for put me in a positive state of mind before tackling my massive to do list. I was able to pull out my top five things that I would focus on the following day for the short time I have to work.
When I got to my desk to work I was able to start working on what I actually needed to get done that day. So often, I would sit down to work and have to spend time figuring out what I wanted to get done, I wasn’t being as productive as I should have been. When I sit down I need to be ready to work. and on this day I hammered through my list.
Figure out what things you need to do daily or monthly to reach your goal. You will definitely get more accomplished if you prepare for your day the night before.
Doesn’t it feel good to have a goal and achieve it? I have built the life I love while working my home based business for the past ten years. It has given me and my husband a ton of freedom, financially and in regards to our life. How to build a business with residual income is something that I am passionate about and help others do the same.
Most people don’t know what they are doing when they start building their own business, I am here to help you set yourself up to succeed in starting your own home based online business.
Tip #3 on how to build a business of residual income is you need to GET IGNITED. You need to have the desire, a fire within you, that makes you get excited to work your business. When you have your own business you need a REASON to do the things that maybe you don’t really feel like doing.
Successful people do the things necessary in order to create success. I follow a man by the name of Darren Hardy, he is a person of integrity first, he speaks to what is going to get you to the next level. It is the small things that will make a difference in how your life can change. The choices you make everyday will make a difference in the long run. Tap into your emotions when you are working towards a goal. One of the strongest emotions is frustration, anger, just get mad about where you are in life, the situation you might be in.
Think about how you got to where you are, it most likely is little things that compounded and found you in the place you are now. Create the strongest foundation you can while starting to build your business. When I started I was angry at where I was in my life, I used this as fuel to build a business of passive income where I now have the freedom to stay at home with my children, to take vacations with my family and basically have the life I always dreamed of.
Don’t accept defeat, get ignited and start to build the strong foundation you need to create a business of residual income. Drop me a comment below and stay tuned for part 4 coming soon!
