That's our most common excuse for not doing what we're supposed to do—like finding or doing the work we were meant to do, starting the small businesses we've always dreamed of, or creating our portfolios for freelance work.
"I'll do it when I'm no longer busy."
When have we ever been not busy during the past year?
What I appreciate the most about Chris Guillebeau's writings is that he always offers simple and practical solutions. Sometimes, they are so doable that we take them for granted.
In the second part of his new book, Born for This, Chris shares a step-by-step guide to create a side business. You can follow his “19 Days to Hustle” guide by setting aside an hour a day. (The first part of the book is fun. But, the second part is much more fun! It's all action!)
Yes, it takes just an hour a day to start your own side business.
But, looking at the bigger picture, setting aside an hour a day is all it takes for you to finally do what you've always dreamed of doing.
Will you set that "one hour" aside? Or will you continue being "too busy" to pursue what you've always wanted to do?
It's up to you.
(Just a suggestion: When you decide to finally set one hour aside for your dreams, do it now. Not tomorrow. Put your emotions to good use and start building momentum.)
This is Day 4 of 6 of our Chris Guillebeau Week. This week, we celebrate the launch of Chris’ new book, Born for This: How to Find the Work You Were Meant to Do. You can order the book at: bornforthisbook.com.
