Work when they play.
Train when they sleep.
Hustle and recover while the take vacations.
I started my business when I still had a full time job. I did the planning and research when I would travel or have downtime back at home. I had little downtime but I made it work. I wanted the results.
Some of my most productive brainstorming and writing sessions took place late at night in hotels across the country. When I recognized everyone was getting loose and there was no more room for productivity, I would break off away from the group. I would spend time in the empty lobbies or back in my hotel room...working, planning, building.
Early in the mornings and sometimes late at night, I would find a gym. I would take an Uber when I didn’t have a rental or if the hotel gym was trash. I made the time for it. When everybody else was waking up to make the first meeting of the day, I was already cleaned up, dressed and elbow deep in my work. I was already in the game.
On weekends or work holidays, I would spend time alone at home recovering. If I wasn’t doing that, I would go see my family and meet with potential mentors for coffee or lunch. I would read and study. I practiced the art of hustle.
When you don’t know how it will come to be, make it make sense. Build the lifestyle. Develop a formula that produces the your success and a victory.
Eat, sleep, and breathe your passions.
