Making More Hours In My Day!!!

I have been trying for the past few days to come up with a work schedule and some type of system to organize my millions of pieces of papers called notes,to do list,ideas,etc. that I have everywhere. What I am doing now is not working for me.

I am trying to figure out a system that will make life a little easier for me. I needed something to keep everything together in one place. So I designed a form that I can jot a whole week on, I hope this will work out. It's in the testing stage right now, I may need to tweak it till I get it right.

Well going over my emails today I received this email Do You Have it in You? Business Realities Part Two Lisa talks about having structure in your business by having a defined workday. I also ran across an article "Work Smarter Not Harder" where Alice also explains that by having a structured work day you will get more work done. The reason is you have x amount of hours to get all your work done, so you work faster and stay focused on your work and nothing else.

It all makes sense, where I don't have defined work hours so I tend to get distracted and seem to take longer getting things done. I figure I am going to be here all day and night so I have no reason to rush.

If I have a quitting time where I can actually close down shop, well that really sounds great to me!!! I may actually get More Hours In My Day!

So I am setting up work hours for myself and see how it goes, I may need to tweak them till I find what works for me.

What are your struggles? I would like to hear them, if you have found something that is working for you would you share it with me? I would love to hear your suggestions.

Do you have defined work hours? What type of organizing system do you use?

Well off to start my work day, thanks for listening,
