10 Ways to Manage Work Life Balances As an Online Startup
Most of us want to make money online fast. Isn’t that the idea behind starting an internet business? The failure statistic for internet business startups of ninety-five percent tells us that many of us are going about this in the wrong way. Putting in more hours, writing one more article, searching for link partners, posting more ads, spending more money on AdWords, it all seems fruitless and hopeless. Frustration sets in and you might wonder what it is about this that you are doing that is so wrong. Nobody knows the answer. Posting it to one of your favorite forums comes up with the same result. Nobody knows the answer. You may never get your online home based business off the ground at this rate and you may never achieve the financial freedom that has been promised by all of the hype you have read online. With resolve, you press on no matter how irrational it seems, thinking that this is normal. It is not and help is needed. Rational thinking is good!
Sounds pretty pessimistic, doesn’t it? You are inside the mind of a very complex person where the committee is defined in. This person could probably benefit from therapy. They are obsessive and compulsive, trying everything under the sun when it is offered to them. Every idea offered is a good idea to them and they fall for the most trivial things not knowing the pitfalls. They are their worst enemy. They feel like quitting but do not. Not realizing that their online home based business opportunity is on the path to self-destruction they press on, but in the wrong fashion and without guidance. At this point, they may look for and find a mentor. Many are available, some free, some for a fee. Friendship is good!
It is time to take a step back, get un-busy, and re-evaluate the situation. Too much time is spent spinning on the greasy wheels of a non-productive home based business opportunity and it needs to get fixed. Take a break first and maybe, with a clear and relaxed perspective, you can make it through this with your sanity intact. Vacations are good!
Are you back? Okay, now let’s get started. Where was it that you first got off track on? Stop doing it. Just stop, don’t ask any questions and try to justify continuing this activity. It’s kind of like quitting smoking. Just put them down and don’t pick them back up. Focus on something productive that will get you through the day. Your online home based business opportunity is your focus right now. Treat it like a surgeon treats a patient, precise, and the patient survives. Precisely means narrow your activities to one thing at a time. The focus is good!
Nonproductive activities create more work. You might feel busy, but nothing gets done. Email is a good example of this. Email is just one of those things that we have come to accept in our society. It used to be that junk mail would be placed in our mailboxes and end up in the trash unread. There may be three to six offers max. With the technological advancement of email, you are now getting up to a thousand a day. Who has time for this? Make sure that you have your important contacts in an email address book and set up email rules that move them to a specific folder automatically. You will know when you get an email from a specific party because the folder shows up in bold. Productive use of email is good!
Time is a valuable asset, not to be wasted or overused. Did you ever stay up until four am staring at your computer? Maybe you even pulled an all-nighter? Did you really get anything done or did you just lose sleep? You need to take the time to take better care of yourself. Balance is the key to any successful business, especially the online home based business opportunity because it is so easy to just sit there and be a vegetable. If relationships with family members seem strained, it may be because you are not behaving like the person that family members are used to seeing. Technology has a way of depersonalizing life experiences. Try talking to a teenager playing with their play station. Limit the amount of time you spend on your online home based business opportunity. Time management is good!
Are you getting it yet? Keep spending all of your time and effort on your online home based business opportunity and you very likely will end up like the significant other that abuses alcohol or drugs. You will be alone, beat up, and homeless. Nothing is worth that price. Take care of your loved ones and take care of yourself first. The business and the money is incidental, life is not. The family is good!
If you are still confused about what this article is about, let me spell it out. What makes all the leaves fall in autumn? Did you ever just watch them fall? Smell the roses, doesn’t pick them. They have prickers. Don’t cut off your nose to spite your face, meaning to do something because you are angry, even if it will cause trouble for you. Relax and keep it simple. Simple is good!
