How to Make Time for Everything and Crush Your Goals
“How can I make the most of my day, Miles??”
I asked myself that question a little over a decade ago when I felt so overwhelmed, needing to do so many things, yet having so little time to get them all done.
I didn’t know what the heck I was doing with my time!
My time management sucked, and I wasn’t putting the time that I should’ve towards growing my business.
Over time, mostly through mindset hacks, I’ve learned how to make time for everything that I need to get done.
You CAN make more time when you are strategic and embody the right mental shifts with your time and priorities.
If you want to know how to find time to do everything - business, family stuff, personal growth keep reading and make more time for yourself and your business.
1. Wake up early.
I’m not going to tell you that you need to wake up at a particular time because I know people have different schedules.
But I will say that if you want to make more time each day for the rest of your life, you need to wake up 3 hours earlier than you do right now.
If you regularly wake up at 7, get up at 4 am.
Don’t sleep those 3 hours away!!
Easier said than done to wake at 4? Or at least 3 hours earlier each day?
But if you wake up 3 hours earlier each day, you can turn those 3 hours into something more productive than just spending the time on sleeping.
Become a morning routine kind of a person
Set your alarm clock, get up once it goes off and plan on using that time to get some work done.
Then allot 30 - 40 minutes after you wake up for your morning routine. Shower, meditate for a few minutes, do some yoga and make some tea or coffee.
The first 3 hours of your day has the best potential for you to be the most productive. It’s when you have the most energy, so your productivity level is at its best.
If you’re managing or starting an online business, or you have a side hustle that you’re juggling with your day job, this is the time to do the work. It makes more sense to work on tasks for your business first thing, instead of doing it before you go to bed when you have little or no energy left.
It takes discipline, willpower, and just pure determination to create and stick to this kind of a habit.
But keep doing it for 90 days straight without fail and see the magic unfold.
You’ll get into the rhythm of things and accomplish more. You just have to do it!
So go set your alarm clock right now and wake bright and early tomorrow and decide this is your new routine.
Big things are waiting for you with a simple shift from sleeping those 3 hours away to making something awesome out of those hours instead. What’s the one thing all successful people have in common? They wake up early!
2. Outsource repetitive tasks.
Another tip on how to make time for everything you need to do is to buy more hours by outsourcing tasks.
Super cool that you can actually buy time, right??!!
We got help with the hundreds of different tasks we needed to do each day by hiring the right people to join our team. Instead of doing repetitive tasks that could easily eat up our time, we outsourced these tasks to get more stuff done without overextending ourselves.
Sigh of relief and productivity to the 2nd power!
Track all the activities you do on a for your business and map out all the things needed to be done.
Take a Notepad and write all of these tasks to be done.
Deadlines, whether you like them or not, give you direction and focus and help you do more in a day. You are aware that you can’t slack off because the deadline is staring you right on the face and you just got to meet it.
So do a 90-day challenge.
Publish 1 post a day for 90 days, every single day.
This is how you can push yourself to produce more content and give your day and your growing business more direction.
2. Get Rid of the Distractions.
The kiddos and the wife constantly distracting you when you have a project, a slideshow, an info product to finish?
If you feel you don’t have enough space, quiet time, or freedom to do what you have to do. Consider renting a hotel room for 2 nights. Get your project done where no one will interrupt you.
