How To Run A Side Business (When You’re Tired)

Have you ever imagined what the last day of your full-time job will feel like?

You know, that day when you finally quit, because your side business is bringing in a full-time income.

That day you walk out of your boss’s office, with two middle fingers up in the air, and a giant smirk stretched across your face.

1

Yes,… that day.

But before that day comes, you’ve got to be making enough money to “safely” quit your day job…

And that can be hard.

Especially when you’re already feeling burnt out from your full-time job — and now you have to run a business during your time off…

hell.

Believe me, I know.

I’m working a full-time job right now, and running a business on the side.

And a few months ago I was really struggling to balance the two…

I just didn’t FEEL like working on my business after a long day at work. I felt burned out and unmotivated. I wanted to watch YouTube videos…

(Not a good way to run a business)

So I began searching for ways to motivate myself. And that’s when I stumbled across something that made things a heck of a lot easier…

It’s called a Monthly Streak Calendar.

(Relax. This isn’t some crazy “time management system” that’s going to stress you out.)

Listen, here’s how it works:

  1. On the left hand side, under “Activity” write a goal that — if done everyday — will grow your business, and help get you closer to quitting your job.
  2. Do it.
  3. After you “do it”, put a little red “X” in box for the day.

Simple, right?

I know…

But stick with me here. There is a lot more to this thing…

Now, lets say you run a part-time “motorcycle repair” business…

And you know you need more customers to turn this into a reliable source of income…

So you decide to buy a list, containing the names and phones numbers, of every motorcycle owner in your town…

6

You plan to call them, one-by-one, and ask if they need any repairs…

Smart move.

But that list has been sitting on your desk, gathering dust for months, because you’ve been too tired to make those calls after work…

(I feel ya)

But here’s the thing…

7

You “think” you’re not making those calls because you’re tired, right?

Wrong.

Being tired isn’t the reason you’re not making those calls…

Being tired has nothing to do with it…

The problem is, you haven’t established the “habit” of making calls after work.

If it was a habit, you’d do it automatically. There would be no resistance to getting it done — even if you were tired.

The truth is: your problems aren’t physical. They’re psychological.

And that’s why this calendar works so well…

Here’s what I mean:

If you see a calendar full of little red “X”s, that shows you’ve successfully made calls everyday after work, for the past two weeks straight…

8

How motivated are you going to be to keep going?

I mean, you’re on a winning streak here!

Your brain says, “Hey, look at all this success. You’re doing so well! Why not keep going?”

10

And by putting those little red "X“s on a calendar every day, you have “physical proof” that you’ve successfully done it before…

You’re not relying on your memories of past successes (which are easily forgotten) to keep yourself motivated …

The proofs right there infront of you. You can’t deny it.

Now, here’s the best part (…if you’re sort of lazy like me):

When you work on your business, it doesn’t matter how long you do it for (or how much you do).

9

As a matter of fact, I’ve found it’s best NOT to measure those things…

Just do it for as long (or as little) as you feel like… even if it’s just for one minute a day.

Eventually, you’ll start to feel that one minute isn’t long enough anymore, and you’ll be motivated to do it for 10 minutes. Then 30. Then 60.

You don’t have to use any willpower.

This technique requires NO effort on your part.

All you have to do is put a little red “X” in a box everyday.

Simple, huh?

(Told you this wasn’t going to be complicated)

P.S. I almost forgot to ask:

Do you have customers (or potential customers) calling your business?

If so, you probably want to sound as “professional” as possible on the phone…
