How to Spend Your Days

Bookmark and Share
  1. Timmy's tired.
  2. Timmy just worked 20 hours.
  3. Timmy revamped his corporate software.
  4. Timmy rebuilt his infrastructure.
  5. Timmy's going insane.
  6. But, Timmy thinks entrepreneurs are workhorses.
  7. So, Timmy thinks he's heading in the right direction.

Now, ask your bad self:

  • Is Timmy really heading in the right direction?

If Timmy took 20 hours to debug a tiny piece of code for his client's software, did he really make good use of his time? Here's what conventional wisdom thinks:

  • The more X hours you work, the more $X you'll make.
  • The more stress you have, the more $X you'll make.
  • The more hectic your schedule is, the more $X you'll make.
  • The busier your schedule, the more $X you'll make.

Reality check time:

  1. No one cares how hard you work.
  2. No one cares how tired you are.
  3. No one cares how many stars you have.
  4. The world doesn't care.
  5. Your mom doesn't care.

The world doesn't pay for the number of hours you work. The world is selfish: It wants you to give it something first -- before it can return the favor. In our beautiful free market world, the gorgeous relationship boils down to this:

How Much You Earn = How Much Value You Provide to the World


So:

  • Don't spend chump hours.
  • Don't do chump work.
  • Don't make chump-change.

Instead, do something extraordinary.

Give value.
