Importance of Time in an Entrepreneur’s Life
As an employee, you probably went into work every day and had a defined role where you’d know pretty much exactly what you’d need to complete and the time you had to do each task. You had 8 hours at work to close yourself off from your home life and focus on your job. You were probably able to browse the web throughout the day and interact with your social media following, with no-one noticing or distract yourself by chatting to colleagues and yet you’d still bring home the same salary every month regardless of effort.
As an entrepreneur, you’ll probably have a much wider variety of tasks that need to be done, some of which are likely to take you away from the core money making part of your business. You’ll need to determine for yourself the jobs that need to be accomplished during the day and make decisions regarding your schedule. Perhaps the biggest implication regarding the importance of time management is that if you fail to complete the tasks that needed to be done and you dont reach your goals, it could result in a direct loss of income -or no income at all.
When you’re home based, it’s easy to be distracted by running a couple of errands, going to the shops, doing some cleaning, or picking the kids up from school. You have to learn to be strict with yourself about what task is most important, and make sure you do it first.
Time is an Entrepreneur’s Best Asset. If you do not give the importance of time than time will not importance to you. It is something we do not realise when it is with us, but when we realise it is very late as it has fled away. So just try your very best to use time for as productive activities as possible. Time is Key, Don’t Let it Go.
