Most often, however, it takes a more direct approach. At the top of a blank piece of paper write “Things I like to do”. Then write as fast as you can, without thinking about the words or judging what you end up writing.
You might find that your list consists of:
- Be outside
- Be with my family
- Be with my friends
- Help people
This might seem like a very generic list, but lets look closer at how we can use it to generate a business and an income with just this basic list.
If you’re outside, the type of jobs can you would include:
- Dog Walking
- House Painting
- Yard work
Couldn’t you meet three of the five objectives on your list with any of the six businesses? You can be outside, laugh and help people. Then if it’s your own business, you can involve your family and friends.
You might think this is a very simplistic approach, but I believe that we make life complicated. We don’t need to make it as difficult. It’s up to each one of us to decide how we look at and perceive our circumstances and potential.
