Take time to dream; somewhere, in the back of your mind, a little voice is telling you that you want a new start. You want to be independent. You want your own home based business. Take 5 minutes to sit back, close your eyes and dream about it. Does your dream appeal to you? If it does – it’s time to look into it further.
Family; parents, partner or siblings tend to be more perceptive about us than we are. Ask them what they think. Would it be the right thing for you to do? What areas should you look at?
Social life; in the early stages of you home based business it is important that you realize your social life will suffer. If that is too big a hurdle for you, then perhaps building a home based business is not for you and it could be time for a rethink.
Holiday time; perhaps taking a break from work could give you useful think time. Time out to reflect can be just what you need and if you’re positive that a home based business is what you want. Perhaps you can even take the first steps towards getting it up and running and go back to work with a new spring in your step!
Commuting time; if you travel to and from work by public transport, then use that time to good effect. Switch off your phone and concentrate on your home based business. Jot down ideas, start to write up your business plan, write yourself a to do list. It’s time effective.
Walk; If you have a dog, take it out for a long walk. If you don’t have a dog, borrow one! Fresh air is good for creative thinking. An early morning walk will give you time to think and plan the day ahead.
Talk to your boss; if you think your boss would be sympathetic, then share your plans with them. If you have been a valued employee, they will be sad to lose you, but you never know – depending on the area your home based business is in, your old firm could be your first client, or your first supplier, or even just a good place to advertise.
D.I.Y.; sometimes doing some jobs around the house, painting or digging the garden, can provide you with some useful think time too. And you’ll end up gaining points with your partner!
Have a bath; instead of racing in and out of the shower, take time to have a soak in the bath. Again this will give you time to take stock of where you want to go with your home based business.
Lunch time; at lunch time get right out of your work environment. Take a picnic to the park or visit your favorite coffee shop. This will give you valuable extra time. Take your notebook with you and keep working on those ideas!
In short, use every available opportunity to focus your thoughts on your home based business. Do this and your idea will take root and begin to grow!
