How to Create a Daily Routine that Makes Money | Shark Smarts
Before making money with a routine, the first question to ask is “do you even have a routine?” You want to become a list maker. You want to become that person who tonight is going to write a list of what they want to accomplish tomorrow. For me, I go back and forth between just writing something down on a word doc to writing something down on a piece of paper. All the list is, is basically just what you’re hoping to accomplish that day. Because when your day has no direction, your life ends up being just a bunch of feel good thoughts that are never put into action. Having a daily routine becomes the art of taking baby steps to accomplish those big goals you want to accomplish in your life.
So once you get some kind of foundation set up, the next thing you want to do is determine what are the repeatable steps I need to start putting into place to make people who want what I’m offering aware that I’m offering it. This could be spending time on a weekly blog, making a certain number of sales interactions, adding a certain number of products to your store, or working on a weekly video.
For example, if you’re a handyman, that might mean taking time every day to post before and after photos of the jobs that you’re completing. So people could be made aware and book you for the next job that they want done. And maybe to accomplish some of these things on a weekly basis will mean breaking them down into baby steps on a daily basis. And that’s what your routine will become. For me personally, I like to spend the first part of my day doing what I need to do to bring an income and then spend the rest of the day working on the new things I want to accomplish in the future. Regardless of when you do it, the goal is to identify what are the repeatable things that I need to be doing every day so that when I do those things, my endeavor makes money.
This is what paves the way for the first step of being able to afford some online services to start freeing up your time. Then eventually, the ability to hire employees to replace what you’re having to spend time doing. And as you keep developing it, it ultimately turns into a system like we experience when we go order a coffee at Starbucks. So whether you want to start a remodeling company or become a stand up comedian, it all starts with making a list and creating a routine. Cool!
