Looking Towards 2013…

Well today is the last day of 2012. Can you believe how fast this year has gone by? At the end of 2011 I told myself I really needed to concentrate on my business and work harder. I think I have done some things to better my business, but I did not fully accomplish everything. I think if you run your own business you always feel this way. I am in no way disappointed in 2012, I believe it was a big step in the right direction and I have positive thoughts going into 2013. I am not going to call these resolutions, but things I plan on working on in 2013.

Productivity – I think it happens to everyone, but sometimes I literally sit in front of my computer and get nothing done. I made an effort this year to start working smarter and I need to continue to do that in 2013. Also if I am not doing work I need to walk away from the computer and do something else.

Getting Ahead – The way ThinkComputers works I try to stay ahead. It is so stressful to be writing the review the same day as it needs to be posted. Towards the end of the year I’ve got behind and I am only 1 day ahead, which is still stressful. My goal would be to be a week ahead of content, let’s hope I can maintain that in 2013.

Blog More – Sometimes I forget about this blog, but it really is a great outlet for me to talk about what is on my mind. It also serves as a personal journal and something I can look back on from time to time. So in 2013 I want to keep up with this blog

Be More Active – I can’t even tell you the last time I was at the gym. I go running, but that is not enough. Once I get ahead on my work I really plan on working out much more.

Learn More – This year I really did not learn too much. There are some things that I could learn to better my business like SEO and a better understanding of online marketing etc. I really want to dedicate some time to learning things that will better my business.

    For productivity, try the pomodoro technique – seriously. I’m being a total bore about it at the moment, but only because it’s a total game changer.

    As you said, time in front of the screen doesn’t necessarily mean that time is productive. I’ve only been pomodoro-ing for a couple of weeks, but the focus and time pressure means I’m getting the same amount of work done in about a quarter of the time.

    I am really going to try that, are you using an online or desktop timer?
