You may not be able to maintain 100% focus when you are planning on building a home business. So just do the best you can and give it everything you have. Many other things constantly demand your attention.
There are naturally other priorities you have. You may suffer a lot of stress if you have a day job, especially with a rough commute, a family, pets, etc. These are important and need to have your attention first. Best to get those things out of the way so you can then focus on your home business.
It sure sounds like your home business will have to take the lowest priority at least as part of all of your number one priorities. As long as you at least see it as more important than watching TV, texting, or hanging out somewhere with friends, your business will have a chance to succeed.
At first there should be research and planning. Actually right down to the foundation as you need to decide what kind of a business you want. This may be determined merely by your desire, or by your skills and other resources you may have or will acquire as you go along.
To keep it straight and organized, it may be a good idea to map it all out. Begin from why you want and need to start a business. Focus on this, because you will need to stay motivated throughout the process. You are likely pretty tired by the time you get to focus on your business and it is always easy to say ‘later’ or ‘tomorrow’. Don’t get in the habit of doing that. Take a cat nap or just rest and close your eyes or get some exercise until you feel new energy to get started.
Your home business development should not be postponed unless something serious gets in the way. You could lose your day job tomorrow. (try to hang on to it as long as you can). Something could happen that requires some extra money right away. Ever think about how much interest you are paying on your credit card or other debt? At any rate you want to be as prepared as possible starting with the money you would need.
It is of major importance to get out from under all the risk that is compounding. Take control of your future now. Go the extra mile to reach your target goal of financial security today. Focus on your target goal of building a home business.
