If you’re really interested in a side hustle, you can find the time if it’s something you’re really interested in.If you’re not interested in a side hustle, then it’s OK to just say “No, not interested in a side hustle”, don’t use time as an excuse.Here’s a few ways to find some time
- Get Up Earlier
I get it, I’m not a morning person either, but can you give up one hour of snooze time to get in a little work before your day starts?
- Stay Up Later
So maybe morning’s aren’t your jam? What about staying up an extra hour after everyone else heads off to bed?Either way, grab an extra hour or so where you can. For most of us, giving up an hour at one end of the day or the other isn’t going to impact our health or our day jobs.
- Skip the TV Time
To me, this is the easiest place to find time. TURN OFF THE TV! How many hours each evening do you spend in front of the TV without accomplishing anything productive?
- Work over your lunch hour
Do you have a job with required ‘lunch’ time, or at least a time where you can take an hour just for you? There you go… find a quiet spot and work on your side-hustle for a portion of that time. If you bring your own lunch, you can get close to a full hour of time in.
- Use that ‘Wait’ time
How much ‘wait’ time do you have in your day. Waiting for doctor appointments, waiting for kids, waiting for your lunch or dinner date. All of that time can add up if you can squeeze in 15 minutes here or there.
- Multi-tasking (in a good way)
When you’re driving, lawn mowing, taking a walk, or anything else you can do and listen to something at the same time means you can do something business focused. Audiobooks and podcasts are a great thing to absorb while doing other things.
I’m not suggesting to work all weekend, but I’m guessing there is plenty of time where you could squeeze in some business time. Maybe it just goes back to cutting back on the TV time. How many movies, Netflix shows, or sports do you need to watch all weekend?
- Vacation time
Don’t get me wrong on this one. We all deserve vacation time, and recharging our batteries makes us to be better at our job and side hustle. But, thing about this… maybe you’re one of those people that has vacation stacked up that you haven’t used? Maybe start taking 1 day a week, or every other week for a while to focus on your business. Treat that day like a work day and really get things going.So… if a side hustle is really something you want to consider, don’t let “I don’t have enough time” be your excuse.
