Why would I want to track my income producing activities?
If you're anything like I am, there are days when you've spent a few hours on the computer, thinking that you're getting things done. But at the end of the day, you end up saying to yourself, “What the heck did I do today?”
So easy, as we all know, to look at one Facebook post. A half hour later, we're still scrolling through Facebook and don't even know why we're there.
And at the end of that day, we end up not feeling so good about the way things went.
Well … here's a quick and easy tip to help keep us on track with our income producing activities.
This is a new habit to form, but not a difficult one.
At the end of each day, write in a little notebook what we actually did that day that qualified as income producing activities.
I'm not talking about watching a training about engaging in Facebook groups … I'm talking about teaching others what you learned about engaging in Facebook groups, etc. While learning and engaging are all very necessary activities for our businesses, those things alone to not produce an income.
This one little trick helps keep us on track during the day so we don't fritter away our time in the office. Instead, the time we spend on business becomes time well spent.
So, keep track each day. At the end of the week, review what you've done. See if there's an area where you need to do more of it, or a strategy that you need to plan better.
Or perhaps, you're right on target. In that case, pat yourself on the back and keep on doing what you're doing.
And pat yourself on the back!
