If you’re not living your dream, there’s a chance that at some point you’ve thought that if only there were more hours in the day, you’d still have plenty of time to spend on what you love after you get home from your day job.
Out of interest a did a little maths this morning…
If you spend:
- 8 hours sleeping, and
- 8 hours working to pay your bills
You still have 8 hours leftover to spend working on your dreams…
Interesting isn’t it?
So what have you been spending this time doing? Eating? Watching TV? Perhaps even travelling to work if you live quite a distance away?
What of these things could you do without, or reconfigure to maximize your free time to spend on your dreams?
Could you learn more about your craft with books or podcasts while you travel? Could you better plan your meals so that minimal time, effort and thought power is wasted here? What can you cook over a week that takes 15 minutes or less? Does it really have to be a fully cooked meal with all the trimmings?
Everyone is different, it’s up to you to determine what can stay, and what should absolutely go!
