Time Management Strategies for Busy Parents with Multiple Children


In this blog post, we will cover the top 7 mistakes people make when it comes to time management in sales and marketing. Learn how you can avoid these common traps and dramatically increase your productivity!

Mistake 1: Not having a regimented schedule.  

Mistake 2: Being disorganized.  

Mistake 3: A lack of focus.  

Mistake 4: Change their routine too frequently or too often go to different areas of the office.

Mistake 5: Not keeping an eye on the clock all day long.

Mistake 6: Not working when they are at their most productive (even if it's not during business hours).

Mistake 7: Over-checking things. 

Now that we covered some common errors. two questions arise: How do you actually fix them? What should become of your workday to be productive?

I'll cover the first question in a second part of this article. For now, let's assume you've fixed everything else and that you're a productive and enthusiastic professional who can increase his productivity by 80% with only one change: 

Shifting your hours to 12-hour workdays (something I will cover in my next article).

I tried this two months ago, and it worked great! I kept 9 hours at work, but only got 4-6 hours of uninterrupted work. There was no more need for distractions outside office. 

Now, let's go back to the first question: How you should improve your time management and how you can become a productive professional with one change?

The answer is simple: Simplify your life by eliminating anything that distracts you while you're working on your most important tasks. By eliminating distractions, your productivity will skyrocket because all of the energy goes into focusing on activities that are crucial for your success (like sales or marketing).

If you're in marketing or sales, your most important goal is to generate as many leads as possible and convert those leads into paying customers. The best way to achieve this goal is by doing everything you can to increase your own productivity.

While some people think that the only way to be productive is by working long hours, this isn't the case. 

The fact is that people who get their work done fast are better off than people who take a much longer time to complete their tasks even if they work for longer hours. Why? Because they can then focus on activities that are crucial for their success (like sales or marketing).

To become more productive, you need to eliminate any source of distraction that's not directly related to your daily tasks. This may include:

Turn off social media and don't check it during work hours. Delete disruptive apps from your phone. If you're checking Facebook or other social networking sites, you're losing a lot of time that could be better spent on meaningful activities (like reaching out to new leads). To prevent yourself from cheating and wasting your time online, turn off the internet on your laptop while working. Most of the time, people who need internet access while working use it for online meetings, e-mail and other things that are not relevant to their daily tasks.  Don't start doing things that aren't connected with your daily tasks. Think about the steps you take every morning that are not directly related to your daily tasks. Are there any? Then eliminate them. For example, if you go to the coffee machine every morning, try going a few days without any coffee and see how it works for you. You'll get used to it in a day or two and will save some time every day. In my case, I started drinking coffee only at lunch time (if I need it). Wake up early and work out/exercise so that your body can get into a high-energy state throughout the day. If you're interested in weight loss, then try Cal Diet Plan by Dr. Johnson . Also, read my other article where I cover the link between weight loss and time management. If you're interested in building muscle, then check out this great article by KEVIN PACKOWSKI , who covers everything you need to know about building muscle and losing fat at the same time.

Coffee (or what you drink instead of coffee) isn't the only habit that can be a source of distraction, but it's probably one of the top ten. If you want to learn more about how habits are formed and how to break them, check out my book: " Find The Best Way: How To Break Any Bad Habit With Willpower And Discipline " (affiliate link). In the book, I cover strategies that have been proven to work when it comes to breaking bad habits. It's a great resource and has been used by people all over the world.

Now that you know what to eliminate from your daily routine, let's go back to Part 1 and see how to become more productive. But before we do that, it's important for you not only to make this change but also survive no matter what is going on in your life. You may be focusing 100% on your work, but if your family is going through some hard times or if you're having financial issues, things can get messy very quickly.

Don't obsess over money or problems with the family (like when you have children).
