Daily Task Schedule - How do you manage yours?

15 replies
Here is an example of how I work

Wake up
Check emails
Check paypal funds
Check various forum postings and sales threads
Send emails
Complete tasks for the day
Send more emails
Finish

I then try not to go back to my computer only a few times to respond to various emails. I try to alot all my tasks into one slot rather than spreading them out as they come. I find this keeps me focussed and keeps a good routine. I also have a task sheet on my wall which lets me know what needs to be done each day. Like a check list. I keep my sales reports and information in a VERY organized spreadsheet to avoid any kind of confusion.

Whats your daily schedule look like and how do you manage it?

    Your day doesn't seem very focused... you check emails, send emails, check forums... and "complete tasks for the day".

    I'd have some specifics in there - like complete 5 articles, build x backlinks, find an outsourcer and train to do y... It keeps the momentum going

    The emails and forum checking isn't a task... I only check mine once or twice a day tops, and even then, I trash most of them that aren't personal or important.

    Hope this helps,
    Ansar

    1. Make sure everything is running okay.
    2. Build approximately 100 backlinks manually via forum postings, blog comments, and whatnot.
    3. Write 4-5 articles
    4. Do approximately 5-10 BMR posts
    5. Work on ebook
    6. Conference with partner / discuss ideas / go over plans for the next day
    7. Sleep

    I do a pretty similar thing at my day job. I work 9-6, then come home and work 8-2 on my business after eating and going to the gym.

    BabyMama, it still doesn't seem focused

    Sorry about being a pain, but I think this will help you in the long run many times over... if you have 1 "big" goal, then you break it down into smaller goals, every task for every day should be to achieve them...

    You should specify exactly what you need to be doing, for how long, to achieve what you want.

    It's just like breaking $100,000 income into into daily chunks.

    Every day, you'd need to earn roughly $275. If you sell a $47 product, you'd need about 6 sales daily to achieve your goal.

    Then let's say you had a sales page that converts at about 3% - you'd need 200 visitors daily to get your daily goal of $275.

    The thing about working with metrics is that you can break it down into manageable chunks... you're not just aimlessly building links and doing stuff for no reason. Everything you do should have a purpose so you can "take action" and actually get results.

    Just my 2c,
    Ansar

    Here's what I recommend, and what I personally do every single day...

    Wake up,

    Go to the gym/workout at home for at least an hour

    Have a healthy breakfast,

    then go on to creating content, managing employees (almost all are virtual and telecommute) and get on with business.

    I don't check emails/stats and basically reports until after lunch. This puts in a much more 'active' mindset, rather than being 'reactive' to emails, news, forums etc.

    Puts me in a far more advantaged, go-getter mindset

      Sound like me after I had a good weekend except for the drinking part.LOL

      But doing that is not sustainable . You better be outsoucing almost all the work or You would go out of business

      I think is worth looking at Mac Deyak advice because you are focused on your goals and not going to a thousand different links that would lead to everybody else but you making money

      Mac Advice is gold ...

    I don't follow a schedule but I do take scheduled breaks through the day.

    I also suggest minimizing stats checking. I use a tool called statsremote and it pulls all my stats in every 15 mins so I am up to date without visiting 50 websites.

    Here's what I do.

    Wake up check stats 10-15 minutes

    1.)check with support staff to make sure everything is running smooth. 30 minutes

    2.)Money making activity (creating Products, affiliates jv's, traffic,testing tweaking.) This accounts for most of the day, actually training someone to do this for me as we speak.) 4-10 hours depending on if I can actually pull my self away from my activities since it's so much fun for me.

    3.) emails read and reply this only takes about 30-60 minutes

    4. Check stats 10-15 minutes

    5. Stop and go have fun the rest of the day if I havent decided to "work" all day which is optional.

    An easy to use free tool I use is To do list, simple, easy, fast, sharable: Ta-da List Lets you create multiple TO DO Lists and save them, you can check things off as you complete them, I keep it up throughout the day to help keep me on task.

    There is a software that i know that is very useful on tracking time, productive time is more precise. It can help you manage your time efficiently. This also generate report on where you spend most of your time. It also tracks which application, document, website that is actively being use. Reports are presented by graphs, and it is called Time Doctor.
