I think it is very important for me to tell you how I use my notebook (not the ones in school). I have my own personal notebook where I write down all of my goals for the month. Right now, my notebook is mainly about the results that I should see on Squidoo within a certain amount of time. Do I always get the results I want? Not always, but I do most of the time. Either way, I am better than I left off because I wanted to make my business even better than it left off. Writing down your goals is a great way to remind yourself of those goals everyday so that they can be accomplished.
You most likely have more time than you think. Many people are guilty of surfing the web or procrastination. By minimizing the time you waste and maximizing the time you use, your business could prosper. Just try it and see what happens.
Giving back is something that many people do whether it is a $5 donation to a worthy cause or clothing that doesn’t fit anymore. Giving back can be productive for your business as well if you are smart about how you give back. I recently read an article about someone who donated $3 to a charity per Twitter follower. That person ended up donating over $250,000 to charities (which is a very generous donation) while getting, oh, an extra 83,000 followers. Today, this person has close to 400,000 followers, and this proves that you can give a lot back and help out your business at the same time.
