Do You Do Something Each Day To Move Your Home Business Ahead?

by Mary Emma Allen on March 13th, 2008


 Take One Step Forward Every Day

Sometimes we get so caught up in extraneous activities and commitments that we struggle to find time to do more than maintain our home business.  We scurry through the routine, but wonder if we aren’t simply treading in place.

Yvonne Russell, co-blogger here and blogger at Small Biz Mentor, has a very instructive post, Do One Small Thing Every Day To Move Your Business Forward.

What struck me though, is the concept of doing one thing purposefully each day, said Yvonne, as she related tips given by Australian business owner Teri Wilson.

This is advice I’ve heard before and, while I try to implement it, I often go to bed at night and wonder, “What did I do today that wasn’t the routine?”

Yes, the routine maintainance of your business is necessary.  However, if you want to move forward, you need to do something extra, take that small step each day.  Too often we get overwhelmed by our goals and think we have to do everything at once…thus we do nothing.

So find some small thing you can do each day

Make a list at the beginning of the week or month and concentrate on something day by day.  Then, at the end of the month, look to see that you’re further ahead.

Why not try this and report back to Home Biz Notes what you’ve accomplished in 30 days?
