Working in waves, working at home can be done either part or full time. There is much work to be done, usually, and that is a blessing both from a financial standpoint as well as a psychological one. Work makes us feel accomplished or gratified, particularly if we enjoy it.
They say ‘some people live to work and some work to live’. Live to work means that their work is very important to them and they would almost rather be working than doing anything else. Work to live means work is just a means to an end – you have to do what you have to do and you may as well try to smile because love it or hate it there is no other way to live except to work.
We all have many jobs. Most women and men have work beyond their main (day) jobs as well, e.g., housework, cooking and other maintenance. If they are blessed they also have a partner and a family, where nurturing relationships also requires their time.
If you are working at home part-time in conjunction with a day job, you can figure you need 10-hours for your day job, including travel and then 8-hours of sleep so now we have 18-hours down and a mere 6-hours to go in our day for everything else. This time can be divided for meals, spending time with mates and family, grooming, laundry, shopping, etc.
So let’s see you may only have a few hours a day that you could devote to your second business. Really a tough road to ride but way simpler than getting a second job where you have even more unpaid travel time! If you are consistent, even with just the small amount of time you have, you will eventually see results. Especially once you learn exactly what you need to do and how to do it, then you can set things up so that many things can run automatically or with just a small effort.
Good thing there are 24-hours in a day. When you look at work in terms of a 24-hour clock there is so much more capacity than the typical 8-hour job where you pack it all in; If you didn’t get everything done in that time, then you either have to stay late with or without additional pay, or it may be possible to just postpone it a day or so, although this is not such a great idea actually.
It will really take some self-sacrifice and real discipline to have both a day job and a business, again though once you get it going it shouldn’t be too bad. The key is really in being focused and getting it all done. It is also important that we take time to relax – it is not slacking if you do your work first and then kick back. Nobody should stay wound up working around the clock without taking a breather. It’s just not healthy and will take its toll, so consider relaxing as one more task that is necessary.
