wasting-timeWe all have those times when we feel like we’re not getting as much done as we’d like to with our home business. This is usually caused by things that are taking us our game. Thing that make us lose focus!

The biggest killer in our home based business is simply distraction and wasting time.

Of course time wasters can come in a variety of forms. Some are from outside sources and some are from within, but regardless it’s ultimately our responsibility we want to succeed and be able to earn money from home.

So with that being said, here are:

3 Killer Distractions and Time Wasters That Will Destroy Our Chances of Success…

1) Lofty Goals – So this one comes from within ourselves. The fact is…and you’ve heard this a zillion times before…but if you don’t have clear and targeted goals then you’re never going to truly succeed.

You REALLY need to be focused on where you want to be, and you need to break your goals down into milestones. If you don’t then you’re going to be all over the place and nothing ever gets done. I’ve seen it way too many times while helping thousands of people become successful in MLM.

Those who were able to see success were the ones that focused and drove hard and fast toward their goals.

2) Procrastination – Procrastination is hugely responsible for so many failures. One of the things that’s important is that if you have strong set goals then your chances of procrastination will be lessened. But still the chances that you’ll find ways and reasons to procrastinate are there.

We procrastinate for a few reasons ~ usually we perceive a task to be much more difficult than it really is and that causes us to procrastinate. Basically this part of procrastination is a byproduct of fear of failure. We’re afraid that we can’t do something so we avoid trying. Things like calling prospects, giving home presentations, etc. fall into this category.

Another reason for procrastinating is that we just don’t like the task at hand. Well this is where having a huge DESIRE and PASSION to succeed (often called your “WHY”) is vital. If you want it bad enough then you’ll do those tasks that you don’t feel like doing to get through.

One of the best pieces of advice is to do those things that you don’t like first and get them out of the way. Stick them on your list on the top and it will be totally satisfying when you cross those suckers out.

3) External Distractions – When you’re working and get interrupted, it takes about 10 to 20 minutes to get back into the same focus that you had.

a) Social Media: You need to get rid of all of the things that take up your time in a given day. Sure we all need our Facebook and Twitter time, but unless it’s for the purpose of actually promoting our business we have to keep these things at a minimum. A good way is maybe give yourself 10 minutes every 2 hours or so to get it out of your system. There’s really no need to constantly monitor your Facebook or Twitter…everything will be there when you come back to it.

b) Email is another one of the huge killers of our time. Email doesn’t need to be monitored all the time. And if you’re running your home business part time then you need to shut off all email until you’re done. You have limited time anyways so why let email distract you in this most precious time. It too will be there when you get around to it.

c) People will also kill your chances of succeeding. It’s up to you to be the guardian of your time. You need to let people know that your time is valuable and that you won’t allow distractions at certain times of the day. Sure you need to be there at times for people but for the most part they will understand and even admire you for taking your time so seriously.

So there you have it. You don’t have to fail with your home business. You can decide right now that you won’t allow yourself or outside distraction get in your way. You owe it to yourself to give you the best chance of success.
