Would you pay YOU?
Last Update: Aug 13, 2020
Here's an interesting way to look at how you're working on your business. Put on an imaginary "employer's" hat and ask a very simple question......
If you were an employer, "Would you pay YOU for the work you did today?"
As many have said, it's easy to get caught up in non-productive things and, by the end of the day, accomplish very little.
So, ask yourself that simple question and, if the answer is YES!, get EXCITED and continue building the way you are!
If the answer is NO!, take a close look at where you spent your time and focus that day and see what changes you can make so that, TOMORROW....
You WOULD pay YOU!
Absolutely yes. Thank you for challenging me to think on this. & in the process the motivation.
Have a great day.
You're welcome. I find it helps to look at things from a different perspective every once in a while!
You're welcome, Trevor. I find it interesting to look at things from a different perspective every once in a while.
Absolutely right Neil. That is why site comments and feedback are so handy. When done PROPERLY! Did you see my blog on this a few days ago?
It was meant well and I was looking for others perspectives, but it caused quite a response!
Have a great day.
I just read your post (thanks for pointing it out!). I'm still in the "baby steps" phase of my WA journey and haven't done much with Site Comments.
That said, I would definitely look at rejecting comments like those, because they're a bunch of words that don't really say anything and certainly don't look as if the writer actually read your post.
Again, this type of information give and take is one of the things that makes WA such an awesome place to learn and build!
Yes, I would pay me.
Knowing all the effort, time and love that has gone into my websites, I have to say, I definitely would.
I knew you would! It's a fun way to think about how we spend our available working hours.
I think most people would answer yes.
We all put our heart and soul into making our business work.
Barbara, I think if most people were honest with themselves, they would say no. Given that this is a business that can take time to generate any money plus add in the myriad of distractions we all face, it's very easy to let the day slip away and not do anything really productive.
That's why people like you stand out. You're diligent and focused and when you share your insights it helps a lot of people realize what needs to be done to be successful.
Yes I would pay me today, lot of work done
That's tremendous, Eugene! I find that, just by asking myself that question, it helps keep me on track!
Yes I would pay me. Great post, thank you very much for sharing 🤩
I'm not surprised, Lisa! I love your posts and it's obvious that you're focused on making each day productive.

Great question! Thank you!
It's one I often ask myself.....and too often don't like the answer!
