Do You Have a Daily Mode of Operation?
In April, I attended a social media workshop for entrepreneurs hosted by The Network For Women In Business. One of the most profound things that I was able to implement is creating a Daily Mode of Operation or DMO. Some of you reading this are familiar with a DMO and some are not. Your DMO is simply a list of things that you must do everyday for your business or life to function is a productive way. If you are a stay-at-home parent your DMO is completely different then someone who works 12 hours/day in corporate America. Whatever role or position that you have, establishing a DMO is very important. Here are the first five things in my DMO:
- Check/Send Emails
- Post Blog
- Create To Do List
- Make Phone Calls
- Review Appointments
Entrepreneurs should create a solid DMO and adhere to it. DMO’s eliminate procrastination after it becomes a habit. It also provides structure in your day, and ultimately your business.
I challenge you to create a DMO for yourself. Make sure that you include everything that needs to get done during a typical day for you. Track your progress after 2 weeks, I KNOW that you will be successful!
