    Hello Blackhatters! :) I am opening this thread to see what other marketeers do to stay organized, but still maintain good social life, have friends & relationships without affecting their business?
    It's been 2 years since i started having A LOT of work to keep my business alive. I've found lots of methods to reduce the time & effort i put into Internet Marketing, such as outsourcing.

    But, i still have trouble on keeping myself organized. For example, if i go out with my friends for a day, they will call me the next day and i simply can't refuse, because i love spending my time with them. So, most of the time, i do it and go and have fun again, but now, my business suffers and i have a lot more work to do - i work on micro job sites, so i get late orders, unhappy customers, sometimes i even get negative feedbacks.

    Sometimes, i decide to stay and work 24/7, but after 2 weeks, i start feeling so bad, so alone and i am really nervous. I can't keep a good relationship with a girl if i don't go out for 2 weeks, they usually break up with me or we continue seeing each other, but it's nothing serious.

    Do you have any ideas of what i can do to keep myself organized? I am planning to split my time and the days of the week for different purposes, example, i will go out and party on Wednesdays, Fridays & Saturdays and i will just go out for a coffee every day for 1-2 hours max with my friends... Would that work? What do you do to stay organized? Have you ever experienced something similar? :rolleyes:

    If you want to achieve a goal you will have to sacrifice a lot to reach it.
    When you are drowning under water you will literally do whatever it takes to go up and breathe; whenever you want you want your objectives as bad as you want to breath, only then you will reach them.

    Take weekends off deliberately. Also, an hour or two in the evening for drinks with friends is not necessarily a bad thing. Some of my best business ideas have been on the drive home from a movie.

    Make sure your clients know your working hours, don't respond to emails after 5pm or whatever time you set yourself, and stick to it. No one local can expect you to work for them at night.

    For me, I will not go out during day time on weekdays, why, because the morning time is the moment we got the most energy to finish the task twice the speed when you doing at night. And rest for a while after dinner, then reply all emails before I head to bed. And sat n sunday will be no work for me, as I discovered when doing fiverr, little or no order will be made during these 2 days. So I will take these 2 days to do my own stuffs or go out with frds.

    Hi, this is related to "Making Money", organizing time has a lot to do with making money, that's why i posted it here. Anyways, i feel that it may be better if this is in The Lounge, so if an admin comes by and has the same opinion, it can be moved there.
