I’m all about productivity and efficiency (maximum output, minimal input) and at least once a week you’ll hear me tell someone that I’m counseling to “work smarter, not harder”. So you can imagine how bright-eyed I was when I heard a radio show host say that the way to get rich is to figure out how to be in two places at one time. *cues loud screeching sound* Wait… one person producing profitable results in two different locations at the exact same time? Now that is what I call Sucsass!
I really like this concept because I feel like I’m always working. I always have more than one project that I’m working on because I believe that the best way for me to reach my level of desired success is to cast a wide net. I don’t just clock in 8-5 Monday through Friday but I also maintain this blog, I write for other sites, and I’m always networking. The more often my name appears, the harder is becomes for opportunity to miss me (that’s my take on probability theory). I write my blog posts during the evenings and on weekends and I schedule them to automatically post at different times throughout the week. I could be at my desk in the middle of a career counseling appointment but to the rest of the world I’m at Starbucks with my laptop creating content. This blog has become my way of being in two places at one time. And while I wouldn’t describe myself as “getting rich” I can definitely see the potential. Everyone won’t want to write a blog but the internet allows us access to multiple streams of income through online boutiques, networking/professional groups that require membership fees, or finding other ways to share informational content that others would be willing to pay for.
I haven’t figured out all of the details yet but this idea certainly has my wheels turning. It has become my new motivational mantra… a Sucsass statement, if you will. Until my breakthrough happens, I’ll be doing my best to be in as many places at once without ever actually going anywhere!
