Help And Encouragement If You're Short On Time ...

21 replies
I appreciate that some of you Warriors are still
working your jobs and on your Online ventures (etc.)
in your spare time.

And I have a little something (that I learned partly
from John Assaraf) that I think you will find
encouraging.

Basically if you decide to just spend 2 hours every
day working on your venture you will accumulate the
equivalent of ...

18 40-hour weeks ...
(Over the course of a year.)

(I know you're going to get out your calculators and
check that, however I promise you it's accurate.)

So yeah remember that those 2 hours every day will
add up significantly. : )

    Yes those 2 hours will add up over time just as long as these 2 hours are spent on IPA's...

    Income producing activities such as generating traffic ...giving value etc.

    Training needs to be done outside of this time.

      Totally Rory: Working "smart" is just as important as working "hard."

    Working 'smart' means you understand how things work.

    For example, threads here must be approved before they go live. That is not new - but some () people continue to post, and post and post.... the same thing over and over when they start a thread.

    That's not 'working smart'.

      Sorry Kay. I waited for approximately half an hour or so for my post to be "approved/posted." Just trying to add value to The Forum.

        Most people will never commit to those 2 hours. This is nothing new, if half the newbies here put in this daily effort they would get a lot farther ahead. They actually might even get there first online sales.

        FYI-Yet you wasted part of that 1/2 half hour retyping & posting that left you with less than 2 hours. You have to realize that the people who Approve threads could be in bed while you are a wake and vice versa. Not everyone on this forum is in the same time zone as you.

      Working smart means waking up to money before your 2 hours a day even begins.

    Totally agree Jonathan!

    Also, in my case it helps to have specific times to check business related messages on social media, otherwise it so easy to waste time...

    Completely valid points. I tend to make a schedule for reading new posts and then giving 2-3 hours to my online dropshipping business.

    It definitely pays off in the long run.

  • I have been doing my sideline jobs (including affiliate marketing biz on the side) only around 2-3 hours each day. Believe me, if you know how to properly manage your time, you will see that spending 2 hours each day is a good headstart for you to do everything. Do not be busy, be productive.

      Well that was during my "chill time." So there was zero time wasted. However I do appreciate the point about being respectful and "patient."

    I believe that most of us spend more than 2 hours of our free time. Much of it is spent learning how to do something else.

      Or playing on FB and looking at friends' photos of weekend outings to the beach lol

      You're exactly right Mr. Addams. So many ways to do this business as it is very flexible. Peeps just need to commit to one hour here or there and develop a consistent routine it

    Working hours are not that important comparing to the quality of done work. In those 2 hours you should build yourself as well as your job and quality of the same.

    I started my online ventures only a few hours a day while still working a job.

    Now I'm full time IM 5-9 hours per day 5 days a weeks but I like what I do

    Sometimes I might take a random 3 days off tho.


    And now I hope that I never have to go back to a job.

    It's not necessarily about the hours you put in, but what you put into those hours - solid message, my friend.

    I feel like most people greatly underestimate the value of setting aside a few hours every day for focused and productive activities.

    What some people don't realize is how these tend to pile up over time just like anything you work on. It has benefited the longer and the more consistently you do it. Indeed there's no button that can make you rich instantly, we all have to put in the work for it.

    Totally agree!

    Even one hour per day of consistent action in the right area can add up over time.

    This jives with something I got years ago from John Milton Fogg -- the idea of the Single Daily Action (SDA).

    What one thing (it could be a short checklist) that if you do it every single day will bring you closer to what you want?

    It doesn't just apply to business, either.

    Maybe you want to sustain a loving relationship, and your SDA is telling your significant other that you love them.

    Or you want to stay in shape, so your SDA is taking your dog for a 5 mile jog every morning.

    Whatever it is, the key is consistency of action. Yes, you will miss days. Life happens. But if you do this one SDA consistently, you will make steady progress.
