When Roger Bannister, after breaking the 4-minute mile, was interviewed, (1956) he was asked to describe how he did it. He replied: “It’s the ability to take more out of yourself than you’ve got.” That is one of those quotes that you want to always refer to in order to stay motivated.
Can We Do It All? What a bizzy life to have a Day Job AND a Home Business, (not to mention family responsibilities). However sacrifices may be necessary, because it may be critical to have more than one source of income; AND it may just be a good idea (multiple streams of income) to make some extra money.
There are many different motivations for people to want to start their own business. For whatever reason, if they are willing to work hard, then they can have whatever level of involvement they want in their home business, or at least that which is acceptable and feasible.
We can only do so much with the number of hours we have in a day! However, one really cool thing about working at home is it is not limited to just day time (as in a “9 to 5” Day Job). You can work at night if you want or need to. We are on a 24-hour clock – not an 8-hour clock so we have plenty of time that is flexible.
If you are lucky enough to work at home full-time, you can be productive at the time that is best for you. You can stagger your hours so you don’t get in a dreaded rut (like going to the day job every day year after year). You can have your time go whatever way you want to, as long as you get your work done and it is a priority. You don’t ‘watch the clock’ when you are really busy and having fun!
Particularly if you are in a sales-based business, some days there is more business than others. So sometimes you can take it easier. Also after you get your systems developed for your home business and work out an organizational plan to manage your days and nights, things will go faster. Always in the beginning everything is harder until we get acclimated. Then it becomes more or less routine. What we do will become ‘second nature’ (natural) so there won’t be as much stress about functioning at a level that will produce success; and at the same time allow us to manage our lives in a pleasant, positive way.
