Here I am, again, after a couple of months since my last blog post. I’m really sorry for that, because I always talk about organization, goal setting, blog post writing in advance… and then I’m the first who is caught in the trap of time. But please, tell me if you’ve never be caught in such a trap, too!
The point is that in September I started a new working experience in a school, and I’m still there, probably until June. The weeks pass by and I even don’t see them! I’m too busy preparing texts, examinations, lessons and of course, correcting those texts, participating in meetings and so on and so forth. Plus, I’m still active with my translation activity, so you can imagine how little time I have for all the rest (namely, blog posts, marketing, advertising, etc.). I keep telling myself that when I have a little bit of time I need to organize all these things, but it happens that I’m too tired for all this, so I end up sitting on the sofa with two kids screaming and playing around me 🙂
All that said, I wonder if there is a solution to the lack of time and to organize all the thousand things a business needs in order to go on and prosper. And no, unfortunately at the moment I can’t afford a virtual assistant to do those things for me, so what? What can be the solution? I’ve been thinking a lot about this, and I found a number of key points to consider:
So, I started surfing the net in search for a solution and I found an interesting article: Stop Saying You Don’t Have Time to Start a Business. Make Time With These 6 Tips.
Even if it’s particularly addressed to those people who want to start their own business (I’ve already started mine, you know), some tips opened my eyes:
Ok, I know it’s not much, but I believe that it’s a simple strategy that can work in the medium-long term. Of course it needs effort and sacrifice, but that’s the price if you want to have a successful business. So, why not give it a try? I want to implement these very simple tips and see if I can find a balance and if my current situation is improved.
Please, leave a comment below and tell me how you manage the lack-of-time problem, if you have it, too. What strategies do you implement? Do you have a specific daily schedule to follow? Do you really stick to it?
