Measure Your Time Against Active Inactivity

We don't realize many things we do until we draw our attention to them.

Active inactivity doesn't occur only now, it can occur later unless you catch yourself doing it.

What is active inactivity?

It's when we do things that don't progress our purpose. The only thing that will progress your purpose is doing things your business requires.

Active inactivity stretches to all aspects of our lives.

A business needs time to set up. The more time you have to devote to it now, the quicker it will be set up and the quicker you can begin to enjoy

the benefits of having an internet business.

Want the obvious?

  • Doing housework every day

  • Watching tv

  • Reading fiction when you should be reading this book

  • Socializing when you should be working

  • Etc

  • Etc

  • Etc

You do need your leisure time. And you do need time for various other things that occupy your day. That's why you have to measure what you do

and decided whether it's something that you really need to do. At least at the start of your business.

An internet business does run on semi-autopilot. By its nature, you don't need to physically be there to run it. But you have to devote your time now to set it up.

Think about what you're spending your time on. It's that important.
