Make that to-do list before you go to bed. Have you ever woken up in morning and thought what shall I do today in my Amazon business (or eBay)? And while you think you read the paper, make a few calls to some mates to arrange lunch, then thought I will just catch that program I recorded last night – then will get to work – by then it is lunchtime and soon the day has gone
Or do you wake up with a panic thinking where do I start I have so much to do, you just flip from one bit to the next and again a lot of wasted time and nothing done to build your Amazon or eBay businesses.
Well why not do what the top earners and business people do? They create a to-do list each night (some do the list in the morning, but by doing it nightly you wake up fresh and ready to start the day)
On your list you need to add everything you need to do that day. Some of the things may be the same for example I need to list 20 items a day. This goes on as if you are not listing, you are not selling.
Something else maybe the orders that need to go out or the boxes to Amazon. Lunch needs to go, In fact everything to do with your working day goes on the list. And when you have done it – cross it off the list. It is so motivating to see things crossed off.
Another tip is to number the things in order of importance – for example listing should be higher up the list than emptying the office rubbish bin – but of course the bin has to be emptied sooner or else there is rubbish on the floor.
Award yourself when everything is done, and please if you do not cross everything off the list do not get cross with yourself, just add it to the list next day………………… If it is important mark it as 1 or 2. And if it is not that important ask yourself does it really need to be on the list.
Try keeping a to-do list for 30 days and see what a difference it makes to your business and personal life, and come back and let us know.
