I have been having a heck of a week putting together my new blogs. I am amazed at how many times I have thought to myself, “Man, it would be so much easier to just not do this!!!”
That thought is what I felt like discussing today. First is where the thought comes from: laziness. Doing all of the things that are necessary for these blogs to get set up is not difficult, it is just incredibly time consuming. In one way it would be easier for me to not take the time to do this and just enjoy myself with the outdoors, reading, a tv show or whatever I want to do at that moment that would be fun. That would definitely make my day easier.
But that brings me to thought number two: how much easier will it make my life? In the long run, if I keep procrastinating and not working for a better future my life will stay the exact same or get more difficult. Why would it get more difficult? Because of ever increasing expenses (kids, house, dog, life), the need to work more in order to earn more on the employee side of things, and shutting down the desire to grow and improve.
If I take the time now to learn how to build and grow a business, my ability to earn will grow. My understanding of money, supply and demand, and business in general will become greater. In other words, I can continue down my path of learning how to make money work for me instead of me working for money.
So really, by putting off this work for one more day I could have made my day easier. But by sticking to it and forcing myself forward I am creating an easier life in the end. Looks like I am now my best friend!
