As an entrepreneur there are only three ways to spend your time: thoughts, conversations and actions. Regardless of the type of business you own, your work will be composed of those three items. You may be frequently interrupted or pulled in different directions. While you cannot eliminate interruptions, you do get a say on how much time you will spend on them and how much time you will spend on the thoughts, conversations and actions that will lead you to success.

Practice the following techniques to become the master of your own time:

• Carry a schedule and record all your thoughts, conversations and activities for a week.
• Any activity or conversation that’s important to your success should have a time assigned to it. Schedule appointments with yourself and create time blocks for high-priority thoughts, conversations, and actions.
• Plan to spend at least 50% of your time engaged in the thoughts, activities and conversations that produce most of your results.
• Schedule time for interruptions. Plan time to be pulled away from what you’re doing.
• Take the first 30 minutes of every day to plan your day. Don’t start your day until you complete your time plan. The most important time of your day is the time you schedule to schedule time.
• Put up a “Do not disturb” sign when you absolutely have to get work done.
• Practice not answering the phone just because it’s ringing and e-mails just because they show up. Disconnect instant messaging. Don’t instantly give people your attention unless it’s absolutely crucial in your business to offer an immediate human response. Instead, schedule a time to answer email and return phone calls.

A telephone answering service from CSnotepad of Brighton & Hove, Sussex, UK can help you manage your time more effectively by eliminating the distraction of a ringing telephone and making it much easier for you to hang up that “Do not disturb” sign so you can get some quality thought time in.
