How to Create Focus Time in Your Day

I believe that every entrepreneur needs to have some dedicated focus time in their business to be able to grow it whether growing it for you means getting more clients and making more money or if it means leveraging it and multiplying it by leaps and bounds.††You need to create some focus time in your business to make that happen.†

I believe that every entrepreneur needs to have some dedicated focus time in their business to be able to grow it whether growing it for you means getting more clients and making more money or if it means leveraging it and multiplying it by leaps and bounds.† You need to create some focus time in your business to make that happen.†

When I say to people, ďTry to create at least four hours per day for marketing or growth or development,Ē I hear lots of shrieks, ďAh, how can I do that?† Iím so busy.Ē†

Not only is someone busy in their work life, but also in their personal life especially when weíre starting out because many people who are starting out are starting out by working from home.† I have some very, very specific strategies as to how I have, in the past when Iíve worked from home and now even when I work in an office, I still need time to clear the decks and create focus.† In fact, one of my favorite mantras that Iíve had for many, many years is, ďA strong focus now creates a different future later.Ē† I want you t write that down.† A strong focus now creates a different future later.† So, how do you create focus time in your life?†

Well, as you know, in your business itís about delegating and getting other people to do things for you that youíre not that good at doing or that at this point should be done by somebody else, but what about all that extra time that is taken up in your life?† I want to talk to you about non-work related busyness that happens that actually eats into your work-related focus time.† That is the time that it takes to run your life.†

Iím a busy mom of three and if it were just even me, thereís so much that I need to do outside of work to keep things going, but with a house and a husband and three kids and lots going on it would be easy for me to use my work time to do these extra-curricular things.†

Here are some of the things that I have systematized so that I no longer do, which creates more focus time in my day where when Iím in my day, my work day I only do work stuff thatís going to bring in clients and more opportunities and more revenue.†

Some of the things that I would like for you to consider as personal time wasters are the things that you have to do, but donít necessarily need to be done by you.† I want you to think about grocery delivery.† A lot of people go to the grocery store two or three times a week and they donít really have to because there are such things in some areas as grocery delivery. Thatís one of the things that we do.†

There are the online drug stores.† Why run off to CVS or something like that when you can order it online?† Thinking about dry cleaning, a lot of companies, a lot of dry cleaners will do pick up and drop off.† Consider doing that so you save the time that it takes to schlep over there.† Youíre house cleaning, you shouldnít be doing your house cleaning by yourself if you can afford it.† Sometimes people will charge as little as $50 to $100 to clean your house once a week or maybe once every two weeks.† Thereís always the drop off of laundry.†

For many, many years I dropped off the laundry because I thought, ďWell, for about 10 bucks, 12 bucks they can do my entire laundry, match my socks and fold everything so that I donít have to do it again.Ē†

Then thereís online baking.† Instead of going to the bank you do everything online.† Especially if you pay your bills online and you use credit cards to pay for a lot of your business expenses and of course youíre going to want a business card for business and a personal card for personal. †If you put it all on one card that means you only have one thing to pay or two credit cards to pay off.†

I know some of you might be thinking, ďYeah, thatís fine when youíre established in your business.Ē† I started off where most people start off which is to not have a lot of money and everything was a shoestring budget, but I looked at, ďOkay what if I could just have somebody for $12 once a week do all of my laundry and fold it and it would be all there just ready for me to put into the drawers.† How much time would I have saved for myself?Ē† Thatís about three hours and itís not that you sit on your sofa eating bon-bons while all these other people are doing this.†

You use that time to get more clients and make more money by applying more of these client-attraction strategies.† So, imagine the more time you create in your day by delegating some of your personal stuff or systematizing it or doing it online instead of going to an actual store, the more time you create for marketing in your day so that between the hours of letís say 8:30 and 5:30 you are really only doing all work.† Iím not saying that you can run out and have people clean your house and do your food and everything for you, but just start with one very little thing.†

Use that time that you saved to do more of the focus on growing your business.† It will transform not only how you live your everyday life, but it will transform the time that you create that you donít have to run off doing errands.†

That is your assignment for the week. †What are the time wasters in your day, in your personal life, that are eating up your business time?† Write these down and start thinking about how you could do some of these things online or have them done by somebody else, somebody that you could hire at 10 bucks an hour to run a few errands for you so you donít have to.†

Then reapply and reinvest that time back into your business so you get more clientsFree Articles, make more money and multiply your business.†
