Self-Mastery of Your Schedule Step 11 of 11: Stay the Course

This is the last self-mastery of your schedule blog! We hope that every blog has helped you find ways to take control of your schedule. As a way to keep learning more about how to keep mastering your schedule, we recommend that you read Atomic Habits by James Clear.



This book helps you identify the habits you have when it comes to time management. Changes that seem small and unimportant will compound into remarkable results as long as you consistently stick with them. Address the time you give to the business and your time at home. Your business is a vehicle to get you to your personal goals. All these articles on self-management are to make sure you enjoy your business AND life. Success is the product of daily habits, not a once-in-a-lifetime decision.


Focus on the progress rather than whatever you’re chasing after. Trust in the process. Lay out the steps you’re going to take and do it. Will it happen overnight, no. Will it happen if you’re consistent, yes.
