24 Seven 365
24/7/365 means different things to different people. To some it means simply 24hrs a day, 7 days a week, 365 days in a year. Yes, that is actually what that stands for, but for some it means something on a more deeper level.
Your days are numbered
Every one of those 365 days are numbered. You do not have an unlimited amount of them. It's what you focus on, and what you do with them that matters. The "doing" more so than the simply "thinking/focusing" part. What do you want to accomplish in the time you have? What do you want to do? What is driving you? What you do want to be known for?
Twenty-four hours in a day. If you sleep the recommended 8hours (which not everyone probably needs), then that leaves 16 hours to DO. Whether you end up with 16 hours, 18 hours, 12 hours, it doesn't matter. What matters is, what are you doing with the time?
In those 16-18 hours you have available to you could be doing more. You typically with spend 8 hours at a day job, leaving 8-10 more hours available to do what You want. Let's say you spend two hours on quality family time, well that still leaves 6-8 hours. You still have time. You have enough time to spend on your side business. This time will be used up by prospecting, networking, creating, curating, following up, selling, closing, and many more activities.
When you break down the amount of time you spend on things, you will find you have more time than you think in a day. What can you cut out to give you more time? Netflix? Useless YouTube vortex of cat videos? Playing games? Unnecessary naps? Sleeping in?
Make better use
Maybe you can make better use of time when doing things that cannot be avoided. When you have to drive somewhere, (safely of course) make calls to people you need to contact, listen to audio books, or podcasts. Turning your vehicle into a mobile university. A place of education. Absorb good data, to use, to store, to stretch your mind. If you're having to do the necessary daily chores around your home, turn that time into education time as well.
Everyone needs something different
Figure yourself out
What do you need?
What do you want?
Make a commitment to getting that, or figuring that out.
Commit yourself to doing. Everyday. Move the pieces one step closer to your goals. You have time, you just don't use it efficiently yet. Prioritize the things that will get you to where you want to be, and suffocate the excuses. That is honestly easier said than done. That commitment has to strong. You have to first figure yourself out. Again, What do you want and need?
Gary Vaynerchuck always talks about tasting things. Meaning, try a lot of different things to see which one sticks, and which one fits your best. It's part of self awareness. The important thing here, is that you do something. Rather than just sit back and imagine the possibilities, actually explore the possibilities.
This is the whole purpose of my apparel design business, 10xmillennial.bigcartel.com, it was to finally DO something with an idea I've had for a long time. I have made the decision that when I have an idea to try something, that I'm just going to go for it. Why not? Well...To an extent of course. An idea of bungee jumping with out, you know, bungee cable is just one of those bad ideas you won't wake up from. You get the idea ha.
I implore you to try things, to put the idea into motion, and see what happens. That's my goal, to get you to do something you've been wanting to. If I can help you
