When discussing the advantage of a WSI franchise
, we talk a lot about the ability to set your own schedule, adjust your hours, take vacations and so forth. These are all true (and a whole lot of fun
). That being said, developing a consistent schedule for yourself is a very important task and should be given some thought.
TIP: Beware of Procrastination!
Owning a small business often confronts operators with a phenomenon similar to what home schooled or distance learning/self-guided students encounter. All the work looks fairly simple and accessible, so it can be dealt with at leisure, approached later. Important topics get pushed off “until tomorrow,” or “just this once,” because of important things going on now. Priorities shift, then suddenly they’re scrambling to catch up.
Setting up a schedule for yourself from the outset is the first step in avoiding this. Write down what you’re going to deal with each day, or if day-by-day doesn’t work, write up a daily schedule breaking down your hours used into scheduled blocks of time.
