How to develop a habit of success rather than a habit of quitting.
Operating an online business from home, or really any home based business requires a lot of discipline, especially if you don’t have a designated work area like an office where you can shut the door, avoid distractions and get some work done. It is easy to get distracted by things to do around the house, or take an extended coffee and lunch break. Before you know it, the day is gone and you realize that you haven’t accomplished much.
This casual approach to work could trickle down to some critical projects and deadlines that have been on your list.
In this video, Jeff Haden, a writer, speaker, LinkedIn Influencer, and contributing editor for Inc. Magazine talks about productivity and how you can tackle your projects and get them off your list.
- Set a hard deadline and a specific amount of time to do your project… then don’t stop until it is complete.
- Delay any gratification that you have, like listening to music while you work or taking a break until you are done.
- Tell the people in your life what you are doing so they can support you and leave you alone till you finish.
Get started and do it well. Next time it will be easier for you to get things done and you will develop a habit of success rather than a habit of quitting.
