How many books or articles have you read about time management?
Many people time managment tactics is anything but a work of art. (Painting by Salvador Dali).
In the always changing world of Internet Marketing, It’s important to get a multitude of tasks done each day. The more focused, efficient and productive you are each day can go a long way to getting the most work done.
These tasks usually fall into a few (but there is surely more) major areas:
1. Doing the work for your clients: SEO, PPC, Social Media & all the other aspects of internet marketing.
2. Doing the work of running a business: Invoicing, reading email, opening mail.
3. Keeping up with the latest changes in developments in the industry which may include: Reading blog posts, attending classes, conferences, meeting with colleagues, etc.
4. Anything not in numbers 1-3
How do you keep up? What system have you come up with? Do you read books from time management gurus to learn how to better manage your time?
No doubt, even those with the best intentions often find themselves running like crazy just to accomplish all the things they need to get done.
Which came first- The time saved by reading a time management book or the time to read it in the first place?
It’s the chicken and egg syndrome: How do you find the time to read a book on time management when so many other things need to be done first? We here at Echo Internet Marketing strive to be efficient, have systems in place and overall not waste time but we have to confess: There’s still an unopened, unread copy of Getting Things Done by David Allen in our office (it’s on someone’s to do list to read it).
The problem with all these different time management philosophies is twofold: 1. Either they are so time consuming to read about that you never get around to them or 2. they are in generalities that don’t really apply to those of us who work as Internet Marketers.
Wouldn’t it be great if there was someone who was an actual internet marketer who has a system that not only allows him to manage his time in an extremely productive way but can show you how to do it in just a short amount of time?
