I would add picking up the audio book, read the book or take the seminar for GTD or Getting Things Done. I have been a big fan since it came out, plus the company I work at full-time uses it for all their managers. I really think it is great.
I would say, really rethink the personal assistant. There are companies that will do allot of that work for you, so offload it to another small business. I would rather pay someone else to do tasks I do not do well or do not like to do. Then I can focus on charging others for that found time doing something I enjoy or do well.
You never know, the company or person you hire to take those chores off of you may be your next client or they may have a pool of clients they can share. Some of it can also be off-shored if you have no one locally to do some of those tasks. Like the company your man in India or eLance. Who knows maybe even someone here.
I am only starting to get organized. My best tool is my new mobile with a to-do list. I have to say that recently I have dedicated set times to each activity. This is working very well. The day goes really quick. I think if you keep trying the habit sets in.
There are a lot of things that need to be organized. Starting from your life down to the career you are facing every single day. But that what makes life so meaningful. You are taking the challenge on a daily basis. You just have to pick the right choices to avoid mistakes. Always try to learn things. Never ending of learning I guess. Keep your goals high.
Being organized when having an at home business is one of the most complicated things I've ever done. I work from home everyday and it seems that it can be hard at times. Each day I have a specific schedule designed and a certain action plan developed from beginning to end.
Staying organized is key to running a business from home and it is definitely a great thing to have to be successful from beginning to end. No business can run smoothly if your day to day tasks can't even.
