MLM Training – 3 Tips To Time Management And Getting More Done In Less Time

Network marketing is an incredible industry. It’s the only industry I can think of that will give anyone the same opportunity regardless of their background or education. It’s also the only industry I can think of that can position you to have time and money freedom together. Most industries nowadays, can usually only provide you with either time or money… but not both. Also, with the economy still in a slump, it’s empowering to hold your destiny in your own hands, by building and running your own business.

With that said, because most network marketers come from an employee background, they’re not as effective as they can be because they’ve never had to manage their time before. Whether you’re building your business full-time or part-time, it’s critical that you become great at time management.

How important is time management? Well, a better question is how soon do you want to achieve your goals? Think about it: If you can become 25% more productive with your time, doesn’t it just make sense that you’d achieve your goals in 25% less the time than it would if you weren’t as productive? What if you you could become 30% more productive with your time? What if you could become 50% more effective? I mean, why drag out the time it’ll take to hit your goals, when you can get them in half the time by getting great at managing your time and becoming more productive with the time you have?

In this article, I’ll go into 3 tips you can use to becoming more productive with your time:

1. Decide what you really want to accomplish – You can’t hit a target that doesn’t exist. Clarity and definiteness of purpose are the most important concepts to becoming super-productive. Brian Tracy says, “The number one reason why some people get more work done faster is because they are absolutely clear about their goals and objectives and they don’t deviate them.” The more clear you are about what you want, the easier it is to overcome procrastination, which is the enemy of productivity.

2. Get in the habit of planning every day in advance – It’s been said that your mind and your ability to think and plan are the most powerful tools for overcoming procrastination and increasing productivity. Read any book on time management, and they all same the same thing; “One minute spent in planning saves almost 10 minutes in execution.” Personally, every night, I list down the 6 most important things I need to get done the next day. And when I wake up, I don’t waste any time thinking about what I have to do, or stressing about something I may have forgot. I simply attack my To Do list and knock stuff out one-by-one.

3. Apply some healthy pressure on yourself – At some point in your life, you’ve spent an entire day or more, cleaning your house. But, have you ever gotten a call from someone saying they were in the area and would drop by in an hour? Miraculously, in one hour, you cleaned your house to the point that it was presentable and had time to put on a fresh pot of coffee. How did that happen? How did you accomplish in one hour what it normally would take you a couple of hours to do? It was pressure. Network marketers call it a “Sense Of Urgency”.  The most successful people, in and out of network marketing, have this sense of urgency. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you need to be working every second of every minute. But it does mean, when you do work, be productive and don’t waste time.

So many people think that to do well in this industry you have to be a workaholic. And in all honesty, there is a short period of time when you need to be in that zone. However, that doesn’t mean that you have to neglect everything else in your life in order to be successful. Just make sure that when you’re working your business, you’re 100% there mentally and that you’re being as productive as you can possibly be.
