If I was able to gift you 8 full weeks per year to work on something for yourself without affecting your current life, would you be interested?
In all the years of asking this question I rarely find somebody who doesn’t want to know “What’s the catch?” I also find that when people realise there is no catch it can be a GAME CHANGER!
You don’t believe me? You think this is too good to be true? I understand why you might think that. 8 weeks seems quite a lot. I’m sure you still have a lot of commitments. You have your normal 9-5 grind, travel to and from work, kids activities, all the trappings of life in general. How can you possibly pick up 8 weeks’ worth of time without affecting something else?
Instead of looking at a full 8 weeks, can I offer you an alternative? If I was able to remove your backside from “Couch Potato Mode” and devote 1 hour each day to a personal goal, could you do that? That may mean you have to miss out on your favourite soap, and if you are not prepared to do it that’s fine. For those who think they can sit one less hour per day in front of the TV, please read on.
For those who want to create a life of opportunity, a single hour per day means 7 hours working for yourself per week. Seven hours per week for 48 weeks a year (I’m generous. I will give you a month holiday) is 336 hours. If you work a normal 38-hour working week, that is a full 8.84 working weeks per year!
There is your time investment. Just think about it. At a modest $40 per hour, that gives you an opportunity to earn an extra $13,440 per year. Even taking off your marginal tax rate, (not to mention that you’re also able to claw back some deductions and expenses), that sounds like a pretty good return for one hour per day. I have clients who have used this principle to earn six figures.
That’s why it doesn’t take much effort to Play a Bigger Game!
