Since Tim Ferris released his book The 4-Hour Workweek, many people have jumped on the work less, make more bandwagon. I’m not one of those people and I’m going to tell you why.
While I know that there is value in working smarter, not harder, I think four-hour workweeks or even four-hour workdays are overrated!
If you’re passionate about what you do you’ll find that it’s easy to put in the time.
What “Work” Means
I LOVE what I do! I have so much passion for my business. I would be working all day every day if I could!
When I truly enjoy what I’m doing, it doesn’t seem like work at all.
How do you define “work?”
To me, work is anything tangentially related to my business.
Of course it includes making, marketing, and selling my products. It also includes balancing the books, keeping records and buying supplies.
And work includes things that might not be so obvious, like:
- Chatting with my customers
- Taking a class to improve my skills
- Pinning food photos on Pinterest for future inspiration
