The Ultimate Time Management Tips: 5 Steps To Reaching Your Goals With Minimum Work
Would you like to know how to get 10 times more done in a day than most people do in a week, with less work?
Then listen closely. You're about to discover the ONE time management and productivity secret that really works.
This little technique is the ONLY thing you need to master if you want to reach all your goals with minimum work and free up your valuable time.
Have you ever had a hundred things on your to-do list, tried to do them all, only to get so tied up in your work that you couldn't seem to finish any of them? Do you remember how frustrating it was?
Then you know the feeling I'm talking about. And you're not alone - millions of people suffer from it every day.
I'm talking about a monster called information overload. It's responsible for more failed projects than all other factors combined, and if you want maximum results from your efforts you need to get rid of it - especially if you're in a home based business.
Here's a simple 5 step formula for eliminating the problem forever. When mastered, it will help you reach any goal you may have. It's quite easy, really:
1. List your MOST important tasks
First, make a short list of the most important things you can do now to get the results you're after. Doing this first lets you see the big picture, and it helps you focus on the things that really matter. Don't worry about the small stuff for now.
2. Pick the ONE thing from your list that is MOST important right now
Next, you decide which task is most important. Which item on your list is most critical? Which one step, if you could finish only one of them, would give you the greatest results? Pick one, and write it down.
3. Finish this task NOW, and forget everything else
Now focus 100% of your efforts on this ONE task. Clear your mind, relax, and put everything else aside. Forget all distractions. Then start working on your most important task with laser focus, as if your life depended on it, and FINISH it. You're not allowed to do ANYTHING else until this task is completed.
4. Take a break, and congratulate yourself!
When you're done, it's time to celebrate. Take a break, and reward yourself. Scratch the task from your list, do something you like, and enjoy the feeling of accomplishment. Congratulations - you've just come a long way towards reaching your goal!
5. Repeat the process
Now, you simply move on to your second most important task. Repeat the process, and focus completely on this step until you're ready to strike it from your list. Take a break between each task, but let nothing distract you while you're at it. Simply repeat this process for each step, until your job is done!
That's it. That's all there is to it.
By following this simple 5 step time management system, you'll be able to get more things done in less time, no matter what you do. And you'll be able to free up your valuable time to enjoy yourself. This is how you get maximum results from your work.
My friend, USE this strategy today. Simply pick an important project you've been working on, and apply these time management skills. It may sound simple, but it makes all the difference in the world. Try it - I guarantee you'll be surprised!

Will Your Epilogue Be - I Got All My Emails Done?
Work life balance is the new Holy Grail; that search for nirvana; the need to find peace and contentment, the desire to achieve that fine sense of equilibrium that we can be happy with.For some people that means not working at all but, for many it means being happy with the amount of hours they spend at and think about work and are equally happy about their none working hours; whether that be time spent with family and friends or time spent participating in sports, music or other hobbies or indeed just relaxing doing nothing in particular except just being!However, the achievement of this perfect balance seems to escape so many people and I believe that's because the important things and I mean the truly important things, get overtaken by the urgent stuff! Of course important to you may be different than important to me, but I bet neither of us would wish the sum total of our lives to be an accumulation of the achievement of stuff, trivia and emails!So many people say that vacation time is important yet they rarely take a vacation; so many people say their health and "keeping fit" is really important to them yet they rarely do any exercise and eat on the run most of the time; so many people say its really important to plan their time effectively yet they fire fight from day to day.
