Are You Wasting Your Time?

Are you wasting your time away?

Internet Marketers can often face a serious problem, especially when using social media. It’s easy to get distracted and waste your time, rather than accomplish the steps that will get you where you want to be; Time Freedom, Financial Success, a Successful Home Business Owner.



Your time is Precious! If you waste it away doing not productive time fillers, you will not make it to the success you are looking for. It’s too easy to spend time searching for new tools or constantly learning new marketing methods. Don’t get me wrong, you need to be searching for better ways to market online and you need to be educating yourself.

The key is to not make learning new things the only thing you do. If you are going to build a successful internet marketing business, you have to be doing the action steps that will grow your business online. There has to be a balance.

Here is a list of common time wasters that Internet Marketing Business owners can face and that you need to avoid.

1. Spending too much time socializing in trivial things.

Yes, Social Media can be a great tool in building relationships and you internet business. Relationships are a huge key in building a social networking business or MLM. But again there needs to be balance. Don’t JUST socialize on trivial things. Shooting the bull and talking about the puppies is fine in balance.

Decide what the main steps you need to be taking to accomplish your goals and spend most of your online time doing those tasks. Probably at least 80% of your “business” time should be working on those critical tasks.

2. Getting too involved in the techie stuff.

When you’re working with the technologies that internet marketers work with, it’s easy for some people to get bogged down in the technology, rather than accomplishing the step needed for success.

If you’re newer at working with computers, you may be spending a lot of time just learning how to use these technologies. You might consider outsourcing tasks that require a large learning curve for you. It might be more profitable in the long run to have web designer put up your blog (if that’s what you’ll be using) rather than take the time to learn how to do it yourself.

Or on the other extreme, if you’re like me and love techie stuff, its’ easy to spend time learning all the new techie tricks and techniques, rather than sitting down and actually writing the blog post you should be writing (Like right now when I’m writing this post, when I’d love to be tweaking my Linux operating system!)

You have to decide what is the important activities and not let other trivial interests distract you.

3. Watching Too Much TV!

Perhaps the biggest distraction and time waster for many people is the Television Set! Americans on average watch 25-50 hours of TV per week! And watching videos online becoming more the trend, those numbers go even higher. Even if we don’t spend 50 hours a week watching TV or videos, or playing games, etc.; Are we wasting too much precious time that would better be used building your business.

These are just some of the time wasters you might face as you work to grow your successful home business. What ever it is that easily distracts you from your tasks, work to reduce the distraction. Check out my post Getting Things Done! for other tips on Time Management.

The more profitable time you put into building your internet business now, the sooner you’ll have the freedom to spend your time doing what you want to be doing with whom you want to be spending it. The more you spend your time being profitable now, the sooner you’ll have the financial freedom you are wanting!

Here’s to your Success!
