What A Avon Representative Needs To Do:
Determine how you spend a "typical" 24- hour day
Starting on monday, keep track of how much time you spend a on your activities. Write down your activities on paper and enter the hours or parts of hours next to them. Make sure it totals 24 hours!
Don't be worry if you have to go back and change time spent on each activity. Do this for each day for one week.
Be sure to look at a clock when are starting an activity and ending one, it might help to write down the time.
Here is a list of activities you may do in a day, add to the list if needed.
Surfing Net (fun)
Transportation (school, work, etc.)
Relaxing/TV/video games, etc. (alone)
Socializing/entertainment (with friends)
At the end of the week:
Review how you spent each day. What did you find? Is there a pattern? :
What I Found I Was Doing
I have found keeping track of your daily activities is an eye-opener and is allowing me to see where I am getting bored and losing interest. Instead of working, I am fooling around surfing the net.
It is also showing how I can go for long periods of time working non-stop or go for long periods of time not being able to bring myself to work.
Try this exercise yourself for one week and let me know what you find.
