So today marks the one-year anniversary of the launch of The Dolla Thug Blog!! Wooo-hooo!
I have a lot to accomplish in this second year coming up but given the recent Daylight Savings Time situation, I thought it would be good to reflect back on one of my favorite posts and one of the first posts I ever published – OPTIMIZE YOUR 27:
I don’t know about you, but I hate springing forward! I’m fine with falling back, but springing forward is so annoying.
Time is the most precious resource we have but we usually don’t realize it until it’s already gone. Losing that one hour HURTS (especially that first day back to work).
168 HOURS IN A WEEK
But it got me thinking…how much of our time is spent paying the bills? For example, at work…thinking about work…commuting to or from work…this can be a fairly depressing revelation. And most of us will remain in this routine until we’re 65!?! I’ve calculated it to about:
- 40% of my total time is work-related
- 33% is spent sleeping (especially weekend catch-up time)…
27% LEFT FOR ME
…And the remaining 27% of my total hours in a week is spent at my discretion doing things that I really want to do (besides sleep), things that I enjoy, and/or doing household chores or grocery shopping.
WASTING YOUR 27
Are you optimizing that precious 27%? Or are you wasting it away watching horrible reality tv (I know it’s not just me!). For example, this blog is about TWO YEARS overdue from when I first could have started it if I didn’t put it off for so long to watch “for the love of ray j” or “I wanna work for diddy” or “16 and pregnant” (and the list goes on…). How many great ideas/inventions haven’t been launched yet (or never will be) because people are too tired after work to optimize their 27%???
27 CAN SET YOU FREE
Getting started might help you start that business that could be your escape plan from the 40% you loathe every foreboding Monday morning! Think about it…Yes, relaxing and indulging in these pastimes is fine – it’s YOUR 27, right? And TRUST ME, I know – a 9 to 5 is hard work!!! E.v.e.r.y.f.r.e.a.k.i.n.g.d.a.y.?.?.? Can I get an amen???
But what do you keep putting off or procrastinating the start of because you feel like you don’t have enough time to start it or follow through on it?
OPTIMIZE YOUR 27
How are we to get more out of our 27? That’s up to you! Get on your 27 grind today (when you get home)…what are you waiting for…….seriously, WHAT are u waiting for? What excuses are you coming up with at this veryyyy second!?! Just do it!
