Creating the Routines for Everyday Consistency

How to Have Time to Work On Your Important Goals

You’re going to discover Component #2 of The Consistency System which is to Create and Schedule the Time.

As entrepreneurs, we have unlimited ambitions but limited time. We still only have 24 hours in each day.

We don’t get an extra minute or even an extra second to do what needs to be done!

You don’t need hours in a day. It can be simple 30 – 60 minutes a day of focused time working on your goal.

But you must intentionally create that time otherwise it will never happen.

Just think of all the things you’ve said you’d on weekends but never get to.

That’s because you never created the time to do them.

If you don’t plan it out, then things just won’t get done.

That’s why Component 2 of The Consistency System is to Create and Schedule the Time to work on your checklist of things to do.

Say No

The first step is to say “No” to something you’re currently doing otherwise you’ll never have the time.

Start writing down what you do each day and determine what are a few things you have to stop doing so that you have time to work on your goal.

If you don’t let a few things go, then you’ll never have the time to take consistent action on what’s important. 

Schedule a Set Time Every Day

Once you’ve said “no” to things and created your time, you need to do your best to choose the same time every day to work on the checklist.

Do your best to make it the same time because we do things consistently that way.

Think of activities such as brushing your teeth, taking a shower, cooking dinner, etc.

You do all those things consistently, and I’m sure you do them at around the same time each day.

Do you exercise consistently?

If you do, you probably exercise at a set time each day and you stick to that schedule.

If you struggle to exercise consistently, one of the main reasons is because you don’t have a set schedule.

Protect Your Time Block

Once you’ve created your schedule you must protect your time block!

That could mean you’ll turn off your phone or refuse to answer any emails during your previous time block.

Treat this time as if you had an important meeting with someone.

If you still don’t have time, you can follow these 10 Simple Rules of the Consistency Productivity Regimen.
