How (and When) do You Work Best?


I'm constantly tweaking the way that I work. For the most part, this is the daily agenda I've found works best for me and my direct sales training business. I thought I would share it with you and see if it helps you in your direct sales business:


6:30 – 7:30 – Work out
7:30 – 8:30 – Get ready for the day
8:30 – 9:00 – Breakfast
9:00 – 1:00 – Work
1:00 – 1:30 (or so) Lunch
1:30 – 4:30 – Work (sometimes that gets extended to 5:30 or 6:00 if I my husband is working late)
5:30 – 7:00 – Occasional webinar
7:00 on – I'm pretty much toast, so I relax unless I'm working on a huge deadline.
I will confess, I usually check my e-mail and Facebook before I go to bed. I used to feel guilty about that, but not anymore, as it is part of my direct sales training business.
This is my ideal schedule. I'm a morning person, so it works with my natural rhythm as well. On Sundays I create plan for my week based on this agenda, using a sheet that lists out my weekly goals and then daily actions designed to get me to my goals and. The objective is always to keep my life in harmony, to not let my business take over my life, and to make sure I'm getting everything that needs to be done…done.
And once in a while, I actually accomplish that goal.
My question to you is this (and I'm dying to have every one of you share): How do you work? Have you found a schedule that supports your direct sales business and keeps the harmony in your life? Do you have a plan? My hope is to have a conversation below about how we work in the hope that we can learn from each other. Want to join the conversation?
