Structuring your time when you are in charge can be almost impossible for some of us.  Working too hard or procrastinating too long about going to work–both can be a challenge.
For those who work from home or are self employed or are simply workaholics the computer can be your best friend and your worst enemy.  It is so very easy to get wrapped up in your work and forget to take a break.  Often times a break can clear your mind and actually allow you to produce better work as a result.  I so understand how easy it can be to find yourself lost in your work for hours.  Getting wrapped up and not wanting to stop can be a challenge.
I know I can’t be alone with this one.  How about that project you don’t want to tackle?  So instead you find yourself surfing the net.  Talk about wasting hours before you are aware they are gone.  How many times have you wanted to kick yourself for letting so much time get away from you?
This may be a perfect simple solution.  I was recently introduced to a simple little tool that is free and easy.  Instant Boss is a piece of software that you download to your computer.  After you set it up, you will get a small grey reminder box popping up on your screen telling you to take a break.  When your break time is over, you get another box telling you to get back to work.

Hope you enjoy…Now go back to work <smile>.

I believe you can achieve anything you truly want to achieve. “It might sound trite, but time and time again, I’ve seen it happen with my clients. They overcome the fear of exposing themselves to the possibility of failure to creating profitable exciting businesses. My clients do great work, and sometimes it only takes someone else believing in them to give them the confidence to step out and take the chance.”
