What does your dream look like?
Last Update: Apr 23, 2016
Most of us, when asked, would state the reason we want to work online and for ourselves, without a boss is to 'make money'. Now that's all well and good, but it's too vague. It doesn't give you a specific goal to work towards.
How much money is enough? What would you do with it? Would you retire to another country? Would you help your children have a great start in their adult lives?
When you are more specific with your goals you have a far better chance of actually achieving them. For example, how much money is enough to leave your current position? What are your monthly outgoings? How much do you save each month? If you weren't commuting to the office, what would you save in terms of fuel for your car, parking charges, and suitable office clothing?
Sit down with a pen and paper and work out exactly what you need to be able to tell your boss to 'stick it where the sun don't shine'! Make sure you allow for contingencies such as needing a new vacuum cleaner, or car repairs for example. Be realistic and specific.
If you want to buy a new property in another town, what's the cost of property there? Could you downsize from the kind of property you are currently in to help finance the move? Be specific.
Write all these goals down and work towards them each and every day. And if one idea to make money doesn't work, then...
And if you're already part of the way to achieving your dreams, then sit down and work out some new goals - it doesn't hurt to set yourself new ideas and hurdles to overcome, these ideas will keep you moving forward instead of standing still.
Buona sera from la bella Italia,
Ciao for now,
