I was thinking this morning about how much I really love what I do. When I get out of bed in the morning I’m excited about coming to work. Note: It was not always like this.
What changed it for me? Well, I decided a long time ago to build a business around a lifestyle, not a lifestyle around a business. What do you mean Jim? In other words, I knew that I wanted to only work so much, and how much money I needed to make to be comfortable, and what type of work I wanted to do. So I put a plan together to do just that. Sure, it tooks years to get there, but I got there, and so will you.
You see, you build a business around a lifestyle. Not the other way around. It’s really easy to do if you think about it. Sit down right now and write down answers to these questions.
1. How many hours a week do I really want to work?
2. How much money do I need to make every month to be comfortable/happy?
3. What do I want to do each day that I love doing?
You must really write those answers down. Until you do, you’re lost. Your business is running your lifestyle, not the other way around. Until you do this, you’ll never get to where you want to be.
Now put a plan into action to get there. Without that plan, well, you know…
I love my job. Do you? You will if you listen to me.
