just a few hours per day or less. If you’re working a day job and are
frustrated that you can’t spend more time becoming financially free, I
have some good news for you.Do you know what’s even more effective than having more time to work?
Getting as much as you possibly can out of the time you do have available.
How Our Brains Work Against Us
There’s a meme floating around called “Scumbag Brain” that jokes about
how the human brain works against us sometimes instead of doing what
we want it to. For example…It’s easy to get motivated, but hard to stay
Perhaps you’ve noticed that gritting your teeth and relying on willpower
alone is not enough.
Think of the last time you were on an exercise program that did not last.
You went to the gym religiously for several weeks…until you caught a cold,
or missed a day. Then, it was back to your old habits and behavior again—
not to mention feelings of guilt and self-blame (which make it even harder
to bounce back).
The key is to avoid self-criticism by understanding how your mind works.
We all get lazy or have setbacks. The key is to get back on track again
quickly when (not if) it happens.
Schedule 90-120 Minute Time Blocks
The easiest way to get something done is to set a specific time and place
to do it, and then show up when the time comes. Otherwise, your goals
and plans are not concrete enough, and you can fall into the
It’s also a fact that people can only stay focused and productive for 90 to
120 minutes at a time, before we need a rest or diversion. It’s impossible
to stay ultra-productive all the time. Don’t even bother trying.
Instead, schedule blocks of time when you’ll be doing nothing but working,
and when it’s over, STOP. Take a 15-20 minute break, or wrap it up for the
Also, treat your scheduled commitment to yourself as seriously as you
would your job. Isn’t it just as important?
Prioritize Your Top 5 Items
It helps to list the top 5 tasks to accomplish each day, preferably the night
before. Then, when the time comes to work, work on one thing at a time,
starting with the most important action item of the day.
When it’s finished, move on to item #2, and so on, until done. Do NOT try
to do two things at once! Multi-tasking is a myth and a joke.
It gives people the illusion that they are getting more done, but in reality
you lose concentration while switching back and forth between items
because it takes time for the mind to get caught up again.
Create an Environment for Focused Work
Your performance is affected the environment you’re in and the tools
available to you, positively or negatively. Give your body and mind what
they need to perform by setting up your workspace for success.
Before you start, clear out the clutter and remove any potential
distractions. Have only one window open on your computer. Get away
from email, phone, and social media until your work block is over. You
can schedule a separate session for phone calls and email.
Take a Fun Break!
Lastly, don’t forget to give yourself the rest you need, in order to have the
concentration reserves you need to fuel your work.
So make a point to schedule periods each day for breaks, leisure, and
fun as well as working on your business. It’s just as important if you want
to be consistent in the long run!
Also, if you want to get even more done and make even more money in
less time than you can achieve through your own efforts, consider
licensing and promoting other people’s info products and sales funnels,
rather than creating them all from scratch.
