The perfect time is a myth. It doesn’t exist.
Yet you wait, consume and think a bit longer waiting for the perfect time to start something new for yourself.
If you trade your time for money and have no residual income then you are in a risky place.
Think of it this way:
If the global economy goes through another meltdown will you be looking for another job?
And if so how simple will it be for you to find another role within another organisation when companies are downsizing in reaction to a financial crisis?
How can you find that perfect time to start a business?
Create an online business to leverage your time.
The downside to creating an online start-up are the hours of grafting to get it up and running.
You will have days where you feel as if nothing can go right.
The upside is the time freedom you create by having an online business that essentially trades 24-7 without having to be continuously present.
You will need more than motivation.
You must have desire and intention.
And then a little something else:
It is everything.
Potentially you will be grinding away creating this perfect storm for a few years so that one day you can walk away from your 9-5 confident that you now have the where with all to be self-sufficient financially.
I have years of experience working for organisations where the work was never ending and the time just kept going down the plug hole.
I worked hard and met deadlines.
How hard are you working and how many deadlines do you work to?
I made people look good and gave them credit for my efforts.
Who are you making look good and giving credit to?
Now my blog gives me credit for my efforts.
Don’t you want something that is yours and reflects your efforts?
I work hard and the results show up.
I get credit for my efforts and the blog makes me look good.
It’s something I can be proud of and enjoy its growth.
Blogging is leveraging my time because as I put out content it continues to work for me.
I don’t need to repeat the work again.
The blogs become part of my collateral that I can use again and again.
So in the end they become part of my online assets working for me even when I sleep.
There’s also the opportunity to outsource work.
Meaning I pay other people to do work I’m not skilled in or don’t need to do.
The point of this is I get the most value from my time, doing the things that get the most return on investment of time for me.
What else can you do?
Surprisingly or not it’s a matter of modelling the behaviours of already successful people that will move you down the path further toward your success.
The simplest way is to invest your time in learning and study.
Begin with reading.
Some titles to get you started (these are just the tip of the iceberg):
The One Minute Millionaire – Mark Victor Hansen
Think and Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill
Cashflow Quadrant – Robert Kiyosaki
Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki
The Science of Getting Rich – Wallace D Wattles
Analyse what is working and replicate it.
It’s all a matter of you trialling and testing what to do and how to do it.
Then you make adjustments as you move forward and learn.
Forget waiting for the perfect time.
Take action and work on what shows up.
Make a calculated investment in yourself and what you can do.
Meaning take the time to spend money on resources, knowledge and coaching if you can to better your results.
This means you can get out of the box thinking on how to approach matters in your business.
A new perspective can mean immense saving of time and effort by harnessing other’s experience.
I like this quote by personal development leader and entrepreneur Jim Rohn:
“Never begin the day until it is finished on paper.”
You like me have probably worked during days where you seem to achieve nothing.
You know that you need to get specific tasks done but the time never comes all the while you think about what you should be doing.
And yet you seem to be busy for some reason while actually achieving nothing.
Why not write them down on paper or wherever you record to do’s?
It’s a much more efficient and effective method for achieving what you need to get done.
For some reason materialising them gets tasks one step closer to completion.
Imperfect action today
So stop waiting for the perfect time.
What stops you from getting out there and getting started today?
Step outside your comfort zone, leverage your time.
If you are telling me you don’t have time I suggest taking a look at all those activities you have that are siphoning away your ability to take action.
Social media, television and even Friday night office drinks could be the difference between you doing something you love for the rest of your life.
Or just continuing to mark time clocking in Monday through Friday building someone else’s business.
The choice is yours.
Take action today for your better life tomorrows.
