Self Development – Planning is Crucial

Do you have a method or program, that you set out before hand to assist you reach your goals for that day? Do you plan your day in advance, before you sit down at your computer to optimize your productivity for the day? Or are you one of those people who just run around like a headless chicken, wondering how you are going to do it all?

Planning is one of the most important things in any aspect of life you hope to achieve something, you can not climb to the top of Mt Everest without planning the trip. You would be stuck on the mountain, freezing and hungry if you didn’t plan. We plan a lot more things then many people realize, but we sometimes fail to plan the things we think about most! You plan your way to work, what shoes your going to where with that new outfit, but you don’t plan what you are going to do for the four hours you get to do online marketing today.

With technology being so user friendly, as it is today, it has never been easier to procrastinate, just one click of a button. We tend to procrastinate more so at work, get caught up looking at that funny email our workmate sent us, or go to our favorite website, and spend hours doing close to nothing for business. You cannot treat your home business, as a hobby, because then you will only get the rewards of a hobby, treat it as a full time business.

Creating plans, and setting deadlines are crucial to your business, when you are at your day job, are you allowed to file that report due tomorrow whenever you feel like it during the week?  Why should you make your home business suffer because you are not serious enough to set out a plan, or to create deadlines? I have found, as I assure you many others have as well, that setting deadlines increases your productivity, because it gives you something to aim to complete for your day. If you have to have something done before a certain time, it adds an element of a challenge, which I like, and hopefully you do to, because not everything in life is easy.

Deadlines make you go that extra mile, and regularly, are more rewarding. I often find myself trying to get an article done within a time limit so I can go and watch the movie that is on, or do something that I want to. When I do not set deadlines, or plan I find myself often slacking behind on work, and feeling miserable that I haven’t done much.

The point of this article? You NEED to set deadlines and plan your course of action to achieve the most efficient results. If you are currently not setting deadlines, keeping track of what work you need to be doing, or are just treating your home business like a hobby, cut the crap, either quit or get with it. Treating your business like a hobby will yield hobby results, if you treat it as a business, you will get business results.
