    Do you generally go about the day non chalant.

    Do you make a list and try to get most of it done.

    Do you keep track of your activities as far as time in/out?

    What all do you write down concerning these things?

    Am i anal.

    I try not to be.

    Am i funny.


    You waste a third of your life sleeping. Think of all the things you could get done if sleep was non exhistant.

    I try the time management thing. It is very, very important to the success of your business. However, the day-to-day stuff always gets in the way.
    Try writing down a TOP 5 list of things you want to get done each day. Put aside a certain time period (ie. one hour each day between 1pm and 2pm) where you don't answer the phone, or check e-mail or talk to clients. Thats one hour where you can get some work done. It's important. Otherwise all of the fires that you need to put out each day will consume your entire work day.

    I just read an article about growing your business on here last night ....

    It said you should write down your activities in 30 min incriments for two weeks to manage your time properly.
