Hey what’s up!
Gosh I love New Zealand taxes. They only want to share your fortune if you earn “inside” the country.
Anyway, I’m not really writing to gloat.
While filing my personal taxes, I looked at the number of hours I worked last year. And even though it felt like I worked super hard, it turns out I put in FOUR hours a day on average!
Got me thinking…
We probably all feel like we slave in our business. Never have any time. Skimp on family stuff. Overdue deadlines…
But the only reason it feels like we’re working so hard is – daily commitment ain’t easy.
To actually sit down and find the time every day to do productive work. To turn off the TV, to not do anything else. Routine makes TIME LONG!
“If you knew how many hours you actually worked, you’d LAUGH and wish you’d worked harder.”
You probably spend less time working on your business than watching an episode of True Blood.
So here’s a little tip for you…
– If you don’t have a fulltime book-keeper to keep you honest, maintain a work log yourself with a timer every day.
– Write what you accomplish next to each time-entry.
– And, at the end of 30 days, sum your hours and divide by 30 to find you daily work average.
You’ll be shocked!
Much business gets done in little time when you have a daily routine. Just think what you could accomplish with ONE more hour
…OF SOMEONE ELSE’S TIME!
It’s easy when you have me and my magic elves working on your traffic.
To make your 2-hour work-day worth a gazillion dollars instead, read about the DFYT above.
And don’t forget, watching True Blood may not be Tax Deductible, but DFYT is. 😉
