Not seen this talked about much before. Coming from being employed all my working life to making the leap to self employment it all seems a bit strange. No threat of getting sacked looming over your head to force you out of bed on a morning, no one stopping you going home at 3pm when youve finished windows. Yes i know there is the motivation of gaining new customers and earning more money but its easier to run away from something than it is to run towards something, maybe some people need the negative motivation rather than positive motivation. I kind of miss being told what to do, i quite miss the discipline of having to work whilst 5 even though most things have been done by 3. What made me think about this topic is that i slept in this morning, didnt get up whilst half ten, was bloody freezing this morning and i snoozed the alarm and didnt wake back up. No harm done, im on my way out after lunch i had decided to have a day leafletting anyway today as not a great deal of windows on this week, sods law that its probably the sunniest day outside ive seen for a month. Anyway just wondered if you self employed guys have a routine that you stick to or a certain target for the day or have a list of things you must get done before youll allow yourself to go home etc did anyone else find it strange at first? Ive decided going to write myself a schedule later of what i must get done every day and give myself some set hours to achieve it, think i need some discipline. I sometimes have this converstion with myself at the moment 07:30 alarm clock goes off, me - hit snooze 08:30 need to go out now me - ill have another cuppa first 12:00 finished windows me - ok better do some leaflets then near where i live me - ill just nip home on my way past and have cuppa 13:00 right leaflets then me - ok then me - 1 hour later, this is fecking **** lol, no ones gonna ring anyway me - ill go home and hit facebook for a couple of hours and advertise 15:00 - after being on fb half hour the mind wanders to you tube 16:00 still sat here, ill have my tea 19:00 - bit more facebook- ah feck it ill try again tomorrow Ive realized im kind of half arsed at the minute, maybe its this awfull weather or maybe being self employed is going to take some getting used to. One thing i find really hard is starting late in the day, if not out the door by half 8-9 im pretty much done for the day, i prefer to start early and get done, cant understand these that can start after lunch time. Anyway i better go out and get some leaflets done! such a procrastinator... Thoughts?
