Are Your Efforts Being Sabotaged by these Five Time Wasters?

How to Build Super-Profitable Lists - Build Massive Profitable Lists. Top Experts Show You For Free.

Bought several new ebooks and pieces of software this week. Some very exciting stuff out there! The $7 dollar script is taking the Internet Marketing arena by storm. The general idea is that you allow other marketers to take the profit on your initial product in return for getting the buyer as a subscriber to your newsletter. You can also include a One Time Offer (OTO) to make a profit for yourself. Unfortunately, a number of folks are taking the attitude that they are not getting paid for the first product, so they are offering dross instead of gold & silver *8>)

Are Your Efforts Being Sabotaged by these Five Time Wasters?

1. Are you doing some things too many times?

Doing some things once instead of twice or more are the things that will help us save a lot of time. Do some things less often, like cleaning your house once every ten days instead of every seven days – you can do that, it’s normal and the house won't get dirty in those three extra days. If you write a regular report every four weeks, make it only once in six weeks if possible.

Can you reschedule weekly meetings to happen every two or three weeks and be just as effective? Check your list of things that can be done fewer times and make adjustments accordingly.

2. Are you competitive? Then compete with yourself!

Decide how long you would normally take to do a task. Focus, get rid of anything that could distract you and cause you to work less efficiently and try to beat your normal time.

3. Can you find 15 minutes each day that you are using inefficiently?

Is there 15 minutes a day that you could use more efficiently? Is there lost time in your activities? Or maybe even a less important activity that you can give up on? If you manage to save 15 minutes every day, you will in fact win back 91 hours, or over two work weeks, every year!

4. Do you have a list of little activities that won't take you more than a couple of minutes each?

Of course, you usually want to deal with the important problems first. But when you feel tired, stressed, or in a bad mood, like me, I am sure that you will find it hard to concentrate and will lose time forcing yourself. If you can attack a list of simple activities it will help you finalize something and push up your productivity and create a more positive feeling. And obviously it is always better to know that you have accomplished something, even is it is small, than to realize you haven't even started anything.

5. Do you attack problems at randomly and leave the tough ones for later?

You should set a specific time aside to work on a specific project. Rather than to try to finalize a difficult activity at once, it is better to tell yourself: “ I will work on this for 15 minutes and see how much I can get done during this interval”. Focus and try to do all you can during those 15 minutes. This is a painless way to solve problems or make headway on projects you have avoided lately.


The suggestions on topic readers want me to write on keep dribbling in - that's again where the idea for today's article came from. If there are any particular subjects that you would like me to write on, please drop me a line at:
