    Hey...

    I am just wondering because I recently started using a todo list and found myself on a constant move that was going nowhere, which caused me to start accumulating poorer sleep each night. I'm looking to balance out my time for my personal life, my family, school, and especially my business. What are your suggestions and tips that I could use to better use my time?

    By the way, I'm a college student, so I spend up to 10-12 hours per week, in addition to 2 more hours that I spend studying.


    Please reply :eek:

    Personally... It's almost a year that I got to IM and had little success. Right now I am taking more and more action but before of the action I read... a lot.

    Almost 1 year reading and implementing methods, failed a lot, tried again. For 3 months I was 6-10 hours online per day/night trying out methods and reading.

    Do not let my reply make you feel weird though. You may be smarter than me and do more things in the same time that I did.

    Take my advice if you wish: Create a schedule. Add some IM hours in there along with your other activities. And make it happen.

    Good luck

    That's a good question. Well, I figured since I'm trying to start a offline business, and you guys speak on this topic heavily, I assumed you guys would know how you use your time effectively to get work done each week. Right? So that's why I posted this here.

    I'm sure there are a lot of people who would be interested in this answer too, especially the newcomers like myself jumping into this field. I've been contemplating my offline business for 3 months now, and I still haven't been able to get adequate time for doing business tasks. I find it difficult to find time for my business I want to get going.

    I have 2 quarters left (4-5 months), so there's really not a reason I should stop going to college during this time of my life. I want to do this because I've read many bloggers and gurus speak about working a job, maintaining relationships, and working on their business. It's possible man... I've read that too many times. I just don't know how yet....

    I've used a todo list, but my problem is that I can't find time to concentrate on my business without pushing myself every Monday - Friday. Ya know? And I wish I could work on my business on the weekends, but people are usually closed. I've tried that once.

    We have talked before on this topic and honestly what I do and have done(which has resulted in tens of thousands of dollars in monthly residual from clients) is focus crazy attention on my business. When everyone else is asleep, I am working/studying/conspiring. Stay up as late as you can, drink caffeine to stay up later, and when you alarm clock goes off in the morning (2 to 4 hours later) and you feel like hitting snooze, remind yourself what drives you, what you want, what your goals are, and get your ass out of bed. This is what I have been doing for over a year and I have gotten used to it.

    Then when your family/girlfriend/or friends start to complain show them more time accordingly.

    But plan on dedicating yourself 100%+ to your personal goals and dreams. Hanging out with your family or friend is not going to make you millions. You are going to make You millions, and it is not going to come easy. You need to dedicate yourself and plan on working harder than anyone else out there.

    There are so many people on this forum sitting around talking about how they want to do this or that and others talking about how you need to take action... While no one talks about how much action you need to take.

    When you decide to take action and want to be successful you need to put your heart and soul into working your ass off to become successful. And when realty slaps you in the face and you realize that you have worked you ass off and have not seen any results, keep on pressing on to achieve your goals. Do not give up and do not let anything come as a roadblock along your path of success.

    Time management is important and should come when you start taking on clients... when you start taking on clients then start worrying about time. As for now use every second of the 24 hours of your day wisely and sleep as little as possible.

    I know you are determined and I know that you can do this!
