So a few posts ago I mentioned that the prime time to build the business is the evenings. And that if you’re serious about doing the business, you’ll be out two to three evenings a week. Now when I say that, what’s your first reaction?
I know what most people in the herd would say…
They would tell you they’re already working all day, so the evenings are their relaxation time. And they will likely give you a condescending comment about how they’re such a good parent, they’re home with their kids, such a good husband or wife they’re home with their spouse, or such a devout Christian they’re at church.
Sorry, I’m not buying it.
Because we know what the average person is doing in the evenings is watching five to six hours of television. And watching reruns of “Friends” during dinner or telling your kid which channel to turn to doesn’t qualify as spending quality time with them in my book.
Now by the way, I’m not against you spending time with your spouse, kids and spiritual home. I want you to.
But what we’re really talking about here is sacrifice. Making a conscious decision to get out of balance for a certain period of time, so ultimately you can be free.
And once you’re free, you can spend all the time you want with the people and things that are important to you. But what are you willing to give up now, to get what you want later?
Please check in below with your thoughts, and I’ll share some more on this in the next post.
