Today is my first day as a full-time entrepreneur. Last week, I left behind my full-time job to work on my business full-time.
Wow, that’s a lot of full-time!
Anyway, I am now have no excuses not to move forward with my business. I now have back the 40 hours I worked and the 10-15 hours I spent commuting to work. I have all the time in the world to make this work.
Now, I just need to focus!
I have never had the whole day to work on my business. It was always done in the early hours of the morning. You know, the hours where I would be working at my desk and my twenty-something year-olds would come in from the night before! Early!
I would fit in time after work. When I was tired and eating dinner. I would use weekends to work.
Now, I have the whole day to work! And what did I do? I woke up at 3:00 am to start my day.
I’m kind of worried I will allow my day to get away from me. That I will get distracted by family, laundry, making dinner and not get enough done. That I will still be trying to sneak in the hours during the day.
So, my plan is to have focused time during the day to work.
I’m hoping that doesn’t mean 3:00 am. I am scheduling out my most important tasks for when I have the most energy, which generally is first thing in the morning. Before my house gets crazy with my family getting up and going to work or school.
I then plan on taking an hour off while they are up. Time to move the laundry along and then go out for a run. I know if I don’t exercise first thing in the morning, it just won’t happen. Hoping if I put in time for the stuff surrounding me, it won’t distract me while I am working.
Then come back and work until lunchtime. When it appears my husband comes home for lunch. I never knew this was a thing! I guess nine years of working so far away from home, means I just didn’t know the routines of my family and what was happening in the house!
Lunch time off will also give me a real time to get up from my desk. I plan to use my lunch break to take a walk or run errands and then back to work to do the tasks which need to be completed for the day.
I am hoping if I give myself three large chunks of time to dig into my work, I will find that I am moving forward at a pace which will work for me. I need to get things moving!!!!
So, off to run and then start back on my second focused work time.
I have no idea if this will work, but it is the plan for now. Wish me luck!
