What To Do If You Don't Have Enough Time ...

by Jonathan 2.0 23 replies
Something I learned from John Assaraf is the "value" of an hour. Put simply, if you invest just 1 hour (every day) to making your Entrepreneurial dreams a reality, you will accumulate the equivalent of nine 40-hour weeks over the course of a year.

(That's some great time invested into your success.)

Considering that the average American watches something like 4.3 hours of TV/Day that's more than enough to make your IM dreams a reality.

(HTH)
Jonathan

    You're right. Being consistent and persistent compounds over time. It's difficult to do... but simple.

    not say his information is bad .. i just do not like the vibe i get from asseraf .. it does not resonate with me ..

    basically time does not exist .. you create time .. i gallon of water or an ounce of gold is the same no mater where on the surface of the earth it is . but how we measure time the time we use changes .. so even though it is the same moment it is 5 pm her and 5 or 6 am on the other side of the planet .

    time is not a currency so you can't really spend or invest it .. you can only use it o exchange it .. you create it to use to have an experience you want you exchange it when you think you have to work to get real currency .

    let me reference Steve jobs in his famous passion speech one of the most important things he did was take the font /text editing course ..which seemed like fun to him at the time and no real investment until years latter having those skills .. got incorporated in the mac editing software for desk top publishing which got copied by Microsoft and changed the world .

    personally i don't know anyone who just watches the tv 4-5 hours at a time or a day anymore ..the tv might be on but they are on their cell phone or their laptop ...

    there are probably a dozen sexy chick who are bad a playing games but making more money online streaming as they play video games than 97 percent of people trying to be imers ..and that is the sexy bad video game players there are a good amount of people making there living playing video games or making you tubr videos about playing video games .

    forget the tv example ..most people spend more on their car payment/insurance/maintenance /gas
    every month and that is in after tax money ..than they will spend on themselves or invest in themselves to have a healthy body or functional valuable skills ..

    right now an investment of my time would be to post on facebook threatening to remover everyton ..(but they are all family members ) who want to vomit out there political beliefs on my facebook from my page ..

    If you don't have enough time but you do have money, you can pay somebody to do parts of your work for you. Examples include: website design and creation, writing, editing & proofreading, marketing, social media and much more.
    By outsourcing some of your work, you get more time to spend on the work that you MUST do.

      Yes, give up an hour each day so you have just over a month every year to get ahead, novel, but useless. Just seems like a novel angle to flog a book?

      As others are saying you cannot bottle time.

      Besides the fact that online success takes time to sort out, and usually requires so much of it, that the average person working in a job, and trying to get ahead online, is limited.

      If you work full time online, you could do it within 5 to 10 years. Do 2 hours a night and a 10 hour day, is 20% of that or 5 to 10, goes to 20 to 40 years.

      Yep 5 years plus online to crack it, then automate the tedious part, so you can work on the crucial part or work on another way to make more money.

      A job has a ceiling and a limit, time wise, but this, virtually no limit and no ceiling, but only if you are prepared to put in the effort, and ignore the inept.

    Simple solution. I keep a quantity of the ingredients nearby. Then, when I need to, I make some time.

    doing what i do now to make money offline i see a path to bild an online income with Youtube over time . just right now i don't have the gear to shoot videos and my apartment does not have the proper space .

    what i am doing on a daily basis when not working is studying how people grow you tube channels and what tends to have the most interest ..by june when It is 110 degrees in the day in vegas and i can't be out working until six at night . I should have have the equipment to at least start making crappy youtube videos ..

    And i just set the goal to move to hawii in November . because i learned there are places i can do what i do there ..

    Let the details work out ..if how you make your living offline provides you with not tranferable skills to online .. 1 hour is no where near enough
    Hawaii, lucky duck.

    If you are talking about shooting video while doing your show, maybe a drone type camera hovering around you might work?

    Yep, 1 hour, only leads to frustration that you can't do much in that time period. And that usually leads to staying up to all hours of the night, (or all night) then going to work.

    I read about someone who did that, and got fired eventually, but thankfully the online business took up the loss of income slack.

    Yes, have done that, l could do a flyer in a few days, years ago, and now l can do it in 1.5 hours, which is good but still to slow to make real money from it.I am looking into outsourcing that part, so l can do enough to rely on it as a real income, instead of pocket money.

      Hawii is the goal after being here in Vegas ,

      I don't punch a clock now so i don't fear job loss and soon work hours will put my out past midnight to make the good money . but when it 110 degrees out with the sun up june july and august i can't really go out and work until after 6pm..

      when i work is based of when the best weather and best crowds will be out .. can work when ever i want ..so i want to work the most when i have the best chance to make the most money .

      I have two business ideas tht i can roll out in a few months when i have money to get them going .. both online but not information marketing ..the the you tube stuff might be entertaining and informative ...

      now i know in my case i never did much online because until now i didn't develop the personality to be comfortable with people and i didn't know what content i wanted to create

      now The more i develop my persona while i make money offline i see ways to tranfer that to an online media like youtube ..but it can take years to build an income from youtube unless you put some studying in before hand . so i watch what those making the content i want to make are doing
