I made more money after doing these....

As some of you may already know, I've been making money online since 2002. Of course there were ups and downs due to changing lanes, intrigued by the so called "new models", trying here and there, and testing everything that were available.

But the most common problem of most of us here is spending 10+ hours online without doing nothing but watching youtube videos, watching movies online, reading redundant e-books, chatting with "irrelevant people" in facebook, discovering "new and interesting" sites, and many things that could waste our daily time.

I mentioned a lot right?

I made more money after I stopped doing most of the above things and focused only on my own business. Yes, I occasionally do some of the above things whenever I felt bored but I dedicated most of my time in doing what is already proven and tested and keep improving.

Many are complaining that they are not making money online even if they spend lots of time. The big question is, DO YOU FOCUS ON YOUR BUSINESS PLAN? DO YOU PUT IT INTO ACTION AND DEDICATE MOST OF YOUR TIME DOING IT?

Now, stop doing the above things and pull your self together and --- Start Working.

Have a nice day!

    Focus is definitely a big problem when working from home/on a computer.

    Many have fallen victim to spending endless hours on activities unrelated to their business. Myself included.

    I agree Adie. Maintaining focus is one of the most important factors to move your business forward. You need to come up with a way to keep you on track.

    For example, each weekend I decide on 3 targets to complete by the end of the following week and label them A, B and C. Each day I record how I'm spending my time (I've used a time sheet in the past but now I'm using a desk diary. The recording material doesn't matter, the method does) and beside each thing I do I put the appropriate letter. This flags when I'm about to do busywork that isn't contributing to my 3 targets. I've found I've made more progress since starting this and the fact everything is recorded can help your self esteem too, another important factor in continued progress.

    Focus is one of the main keys. Not jumping from one to the next (the flavour of the week) another.

    Most of your time spent online needs to be productive activities (chatting not being one of them unless it's making you money)

    • Focusing and killint procrastination are two fundamentals for every internet marketer. You can finish a new product in 6 hours, 6 weeks or 6 months, and much depends on how many time you throw away losing time.

      The first year I was losing focus easily, but now, after following a few reports and trainings, I'm able to work better and faster, and keep also some free time for me and family.

      Thanks so much and see you soon,

    Totally agree with you Adie, but it is not easy to maintain focus and it's just so easy to get carried away doing other things.

    I have been carried away reading ebooks after ebooks but not taking any action.

    Hi Adie,

    I fully agreed with you.

    I earn consistent income when i started focusing on what I supposed to do for Internet Marketing.

    I can now go back to the routine of "watching youtube videos, watching movies online, chatting with "irrelevant people" in facebook" since I have already getting what I want to achieve.

    My advice is to work hard first and to enjoy later.

    Great post. It is so easy to get off track when working online. I make it a point to check my email first thing in the morning and then shut it down. Otherwise I would be chatting with and emailing people all day without getting any money making work done.

    Focus on what is going to bring in the highest profits.

    Everyone has dreams of the 'ultimate earner' but in reality very few actually pay dividends. Focus your efforts on whats earning you money right here and right now. Spend about 1 hour each day thinking of alternatives so it doesnt get in the way of your main income.

      I like to share my 2 cents worth. My trainer told us not only must we focus but it must be laser focus and perseverance. Newbies especially like us can give up very easily if we do not stay focus and persevere. We tend to expect results too quickly and if we don't see results we get demoralize and complain that this internet business can never make anyone money.

      Yes I agree, you hit the nail on the head with the word focus. Also need a well thought out plan to focus on.

        OP - Not sure I really know what you are talking about, one thing that comes to mind is....

        "....hold on, I love this video.... my friends are going to like this"

        Ok, I'm back, uh... what was the question again?

    Thank you the advice!

    It is true people believe they are actually working when really all they are doing is reading forums, or wso's - which they think is helping them.

    The truth is there not accomplishing anything. To improve your success online, leave all distractions out and focus only on what will help your business grow the most - and do that!

    A tip I learned to help accomplish this, is write down what your action plan before you go to bed - while it is still fresh in your mind. Many people waste valuable time each day trying to figure out what there going to do.

    By doing this - when you wake up you are already know what your doing, and can get more done!.
