The decision to start a business and grow it is probably the culmination of the ultimate goals which you want to achieve. It could be to achieve financial freedom or to have more free time to spend with your family or loved ones. Staying the course, maintaining peak performance and achieving your goals requires personal discipline and habits. Read on to find out how to maintain momentum and staying focused.
1.      Review today’s to do list and draft the next days to do list. In the evening before you call it a day, hold planning sessions with you and ask yourself; what did I accomplish today? Focus on what you accomplished and celebrate as this gives you the momentum to complete what you might not have been able to finish. Review if there is anything pending from the to do list. If yes can it be carried to the next day or to some other later date? Then make note of it and schedule it appropriately .This allows you to let go and maintain momentum for the next day.
2.      Determine which tasks are of high priority each day which highlight your most important goals. Base your decision on what is important to you and what is not. If you have items on the list that are too big to tackle break down into smaller, more manageable goals.
3.      Know how to effectively handle interruptions and staying focused. Get into the habit of determining the nature of the interruption and then decide the best way to handle it. Avoid habits like ,procrastination, crises management, lack of concentration and focus on one job, telephones, friends and  emotional blocks such as; boredom and daydreaming. These habits reduce your momentum.
4.      Habitually finish all the items on your to do list. Set obtainable and realistic goals. Achieving these goals, improves your self esteem and  performance
  1. Delegate both authority and responsibility well. Delegating is one aspect of getting organized and achieving the most. It may take a little time to train someone to do an activity the way you want it done, but then you no longer are handling that work in the weeks and months ahead. It is worth the small amount of time to train and to delegate.
