Ever been conned?

Last Update: March 09, 2014

Well, this is it. At one point somewhere, somehow, one way or the other we have been conned. The con artist is the numer one conman. The art is swift and the players are swift. Back in the day, I even heard of an account of one buying a radiocassette player only to arrive home with a bloc of bricks in the Alexandrian city!

But that is not the type of husle am talking about. Am talking about the big factor T word, time! That is the thing. In as much as I work hard, I barely go beyond checking my mails and a few hi here and there. This beautiful WA training, ah, time has cut me short of the glory of completion. One thing I know for certain is that, unfortunately, we all were given this same time, the 24 hour cycle. It seems that is not enough for some while it is too much for some few. Just the other day when I sat with my daughter wondering how time is never enough yet others make use of the same time efficiently, she said you know what? I sharpened my ears to listen. She said mom, those whom you see not chasing after time invested in it at the begining and are now reaping the fruits. The resource rich (time and money) do not need to labour, I thought to my self. But then the more I spend time here the more I realize that even those who have achieved their goals are still working harder than they should.

With this thing called time on my tail, it makes me wonder, this third job of mine (full time day job first, housekeeping second, and now this), which time do I priotize for it? I just wonder, does any one feel like that? Or have I also become a hustler swindling Time from my family and going nowhere slowly?

Hi Marcy,

I do agree with Gordi that prioritising plays a lot in it. At the beginning of anything you will need more time but as you get better and better you will need lesser time to do the same thing.

Try to do what you can

All the best

Prioritizing is the key, I think. For me at this moment, job is #1 cause that pays my bills. However, I am here because I want to turn it around the other way.
I don't believe in pushing myself to death. Life is too short for that.

Work at your own pace, this is definitely not a race and work through this when you get a chance. I personally started while full time in college, so I can totally relate to your situation and the emphasis on the "T" word.

As you start to see progress and results, you will naturally dedicate more time to your business, but I can absolutely assure you that with some hard work and dedication here, you are going to see results.

Excellent post Marcy!

Hi Marcy....I can relate to what you are saying. I agree with Marko...you will need to prioritize. I find myself in the same position as you. I work at my business 60+ hours a week. (real estate broker) In the past couple years...I have had to be very strict and discipline myself on a time schedule. Best of luck to you....Melanie

Hi Marcy. I think you need to make a time table. Your day job and family will come first but you need to make time for WA also. Investing WA training will eventually make you create more time for you in the month and years following to come

Marcy, wow that is something to think about. I was giving all of my time just a few months ago to my teaching job, not only my time but my energy, and even my money. My husband and I decided that I had spent enough of our time there and I turned in my resignation. I don't think that everyone should do this, but that full time job, my day started at 4 AM I left my house at 5:30 AM, got to the school about about 6:45 AM didn't leave the school until about 5:00 PM then I went to work in my shop until about 10 PM, so I relieved myself of the 4 to 5, I kept the shop. I drove everyday 2.5 hours that is 2.5 hours that I will never get back and I did this for 5 years, and 195,000 miles.
I not stressed anymore, and life is good, money is tight, but I can live with that. My girls are home from college and guess what I can spend everyday that they are here with them excluding Thursday because I will do my little ladies, so much happier.
I guess you have to decide which in the long run will help you get to where you want to be.
So after that long explanation YES, I have been conned.

this sounds very practicle once you have turned your back to it and are home with the girls. no moare eating from the other's pot of time! mine is a matter of making that decision once i have a bird in the hand. i think in the mean time i will stretch my 24 hrs and make them last while all of us keep happy ie me, my job and my family. ta marcy
