The Importance of Time Management
OK so as I was saying in big money little money post; it may be a good idea to to create as many e = buying and selling events as is possible, but maybe you need to look beyond the current months challenge.
I think the key to achieving the larger goals, is to be a 'swot' and front load as much doubling of your money as possible; this creates more e's later on when the target seem further and further away.
Brian Tracy - a great author, in his book Eat That Frog!: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time: Easy Read Comfort Edition talks about doing the things that need to be done, especially the items that aren't fun or just down right nasty; get them out of the way and move on, sometimes on a daily basis; it's the best way to keep moving forward; and to be in the continual habit of constantly moving forward. The items you are not looking forward to are the ones that are all too easy to procrastinate on...
I have been thinking about the idea of moving the doubling forward; what affectively this does is allows me/us to stay in a comfort zone for longer; within the same context - same type/sizes of products (do more of the same, just more often and as quickly as possible). There is definitely something to be said for doing something well and sticking to it... hmmm...
I need to do another round of shortbread this week! didn't get around to it last week.
Maybe I'll force myself to not do the same thing/product each month to keep learning and looking out for new opportunities as the targets grow
