One of the biggest problems that people have when trying to start a home business is that they don't know how to handle all the things that they have to do. Make no mistake about it. . . starting and running a home business is a lot of work. Anybody who tells you differently is feeding you a line of bull. As this can be quite overwhelming, the article you're about to read will give you some solid tips on making sense out of the chaos.
The first thing you have to do, and I do this every evening before I go to bed, is make yourself a schedule. It will only take you about a few minutes but it will save you a ton of time the next day. With a written schedule right in front of you, there is no excuse not to get done what has to get done. You simply need to prioritize your list in order of most important to least important. That way, if there are some things you don't get to, the really important tasks will get done.
The next thing you need to do is set a time limit for each task. This will help make sure that most, if not all things, get done. At first, you'll probably miscalculate some of the tasks. This is normal. However, as you do this more and more, you'll get to a point where you'll know exactly how long it will take you to complete each task. For example, I know that I can write an article in about 15 minutes. This way, if I want to write 4 articles in a day, I know it will take me about an hour. This makes it very easy for me to plan my day.
All of this really just comes down to discipline. All the schedule making in the world isn't going to mean a thing if you don't have the discipline to actually take out your list and work on it. This is where my reward system comes into play. For each task I complete that I really don't want to do, I reward myself with something. It works wonders.
It can do the same for you too. And THAT is how you make sense out of the chaos and make it fun in the process.
