JMTC: Iowa branch got struck by flu bug this week. There were good times that I was able to put together an article and some days that getting out of bed sounded like a really bad idea.
Included in all of this was a minimum amount of logging on World of Warcraft. But out of this lack of will to log on to finish up anything but the basic chores it reminded me of time management.
Whenever you look to start or even continue your gold making career. Time management is the first thing to check off on your list to master. There are days that you will only be able to log on for a little bit that day. Other days you will have some extra time to work before having to go to family functions. Then there are thos magic days that the family is out, clouds part and you have all day to longue around and work at your own pace.
Myself, I have three different sets of tasks to perform depending on my time constraints and ability to invest.
Short: (30 minutes)
I only do my three transmutes/daily crafts (Inscription, Jewelcrafting, Alchemy). If I have any time I will do a quick scan of the auction house for quick purchases to flip.
Medium (1-3 hours)
I choose 2 to 3 of my top selling crafters and do their normal listing routine and crafting. If I only have 1 hour then I use the top seller as the number 1 priority. Second hour I work with the number two seller down the list.
Long (3+ Hours)
This obviously is a full listing of all of my auctions, crafting items that will sell (PVP, weapons, speciality enhancements). Also included is my scanning for items to flip for a profit and resetting any markets that need to be rebalanced for added sales.
The time frames are estimates. Many gold goblins don't want to spend three hours working on Auction house sales. There are days that I have three plus hours to play that I just look do to a short day and then go to finish up dailies. These are always dependent on your own adjustments.
Setting your own time management expectations will allow you to work quicker and more effectively in both short and long term time investments.
