Find Your Pockets of Free Time
I hear over and over again from people who would like to start their own blogs – “I just don’t have the time!”. Life IS busy these days – and adding one more thing can feel impossible and overwhelming!
But, I’m here to tell you that it IS possible to build a successful blog in the pockets of time that your schedule allows. Because I’ve done it!
So, today’s task is all about finding the pockets of time in YOUR blogging schedule that you could use to work on your blog! Then, toward the end of this challenge, we’ll talk about how to best fill those pockets of time with blogging tasks to make sure you’re using your time as effectively as possible!
Today’s Task: Start “Stealing” Free Time
Very early in the morning and late at night, you can “steal” free time for blogging tasks. Some people spend 1 hour in the morning and 1 or more hours in the evening doing absolutely nothing. This is certainly okay if you have designated this as your free time. However, maybe you don’t realize how much free time you let slip through your hands each day.
Start recording blocks of time during your day where you accomplish very little. You may be surprised that on a regular basis, often daily, there are 15, 30 and 60 minute chunks of time where you could accomplish some small but necessary blogging responsibility. Start recording how much free time you waste every day, and you might just be amazed at how much more you get accomplished.
