Have you ever made an appointment with yourself?

I see you laughing right now but it is so important to spend some time in your inner /personal organization and everyday goal setting in the beginning of each day.

So, do not procrastinate and start making appointments with yourself.  Plan your day by deciding when you’ll check email and when you’ll work on client projects and  stick to the schedule. By this way, you will be focused and on right track with your self-imposed deadlines and you will not waste your time with the “time-vampires” i.e social media channels.

The first hour of your working day is really important for your productivity, your effectiveness  and it counts the most because it sets the whole tone of your day.  If you use time blocking and stick to that, you will see phenomenal impact in your business life. An hour a day may be just the beginning, but you have to take action. In the end, you’ll wonder how you ever managed before you did these four things to improve your business.
