I woke up this morning and did not want to get out of bed. My mind kept telling me that I was better off getting some rest. If I slept a little while longer, I would do much better work. I earned the time off because I had a tough week. I face my mind every single day, as I am sure that so many of you do as well. In the past, my mind won and I wound up procrastinating and not doing the work that would ensure that I achieve my most important goals. However, that only cost me frustration and did not allow me to achieve my goals in my Home Based Business.
Now, I have implemented the following tips to make sure I get done what I need to get done every day to achieve my goals.
Below are some Home Based Business tips that you can implement to make sure that your mind does not take you out of the game in the beginning –
1. Get up the same time every day – This lets your mind know that you are serious and your success is non-negotiable. You should even get up the same time on weekends and days off. Even if you get up and go back to bed after working for an hour or so, you will be better off.
2. Do Something Physical first thing in the morning – If you do something physical, your mind immediately knows that you are serious and are not going to be stopped.
3. Do the Hardest Thing for the Day First – Whenever I do not take on my hardest task in my Home Based Business first thing in the morning, I wind up worrying about it. If I attack the hardest task first thing, then I accomplish a few things. My first task is complete and I don’t have to worry about it. The benefits are great.
If you are stuck with the “I Don’t Want To” Blues in your business, these tips should help you be more successful going forward. Go out there and conquer your mind.
