So we “sprung back” the clock yesterday and everyone got an extra hour of sleep. The question is, even with the extra hour, how many hours of sleep did you get?
It’s no secret that most of us don’t get our recommended eight hours of sleep. Google will tell you the average Americans barely gets 7 hours each night. And here’s the kicker. Spending eight hours sleeping goes by in a wink. However, spending eight hours at work draws out like a knife. And five hours of sleep isn’t a lot of sleep. But if you work for five hours, you’re worn out!
The point of me stating all this isn’t to bum you out. It’s to show you that the great things in life fly by while the things we hate to do (but â€œhaveâ€ to do) go on forever. The solution is actually very simple – do things you love. The problem is most of us can’t do that because we spend 40+ hours a week working for the weekend.
The Real Solution – Stop Working for Money
This is not as stupid as it sounds. If you study the rich, you’ll see that they don’t work for their money. Instead they create systems that makes them the money so they can spend time on doing things that makes time fly. This is why I don’t trade hours for dollars. I refuse to be the main source of income. Instead, I create other sources that makes the money so I can live the Dot Com Lifestyle.
A common investment advice is to never put your eggs in one basket. Yet, when it comes to making money, most people put all their eggs into the job basket. That’s not very smart. Now, I’m not saying you should go out right now and quit your job. That would be stupid. However, I recommend that you should be looking at creating a few more income sources. It could be a blog, it could be affiliate marketing, or any number of things. Whatever it is, the key is to just get started. Then, time will start working for you instead of you working for it.
