The rewards of your work are not worth sacrificing personal health and family time. Ten years from now what you’re doing for your health, personal well-being, family time, and spiritual growth now will be far more important than the paycheck you’re getting this Friday.
Episode #864 January 06, 2023
Hi this is Dan Miller – and yes you’re listening to the 48 Days Radio show – where each week we take 48 minutes to dive into real-life questions about finding your passion, deciding what kind of life you want to live – and then finding or creating work that allows you to show up every day, excited to be able to do something that is meaningful, fulfilling – and profitable. This is where normal, indecision and ambiguity come to die. Welcome to the 48 Days Radio Show.
I hate my job but I don’t want a gap in my resume.
I recommend you quit the job you have immediately. Find something close by. Do something you would consider fun. It doesn’t have to be your dream job or the perfect job for your career path. This will give you a base income and the emotional freedom to build the business you want for yourself.
Set yourself a goal to be bringing in 50% of the income from your job in your side business by June 1st. Then you can begin to look at expanding into your business full-time.
I’m the new Executive Director of an organization. How can I build rapport with the people I’m leading?
Check out the 100 Cups Academy with Jason Elkins and look into asking people for a few minutes to have a cup of coffee together (even virtually) — no agenda, not selling anything, just time to get to know each other.
Ben Franklin Factor – if you ask someone for a favor, they actually feel much closer to you.
When you have events, find ways to make them memorable, engaging and an opportunity to have fun together.
Building rapport is not an overnight thing. It takes time to develop.
Find a way that people can work on a project together. It’s called The Ikea Effect. Check out You’re Invited by Jon Levy on how he invited people for dinner and they worked together to create the meal.
My Mom is ill – should I put my own plans on hold?
We’re never immune from unexpected and unwelcome events, but if we allowed those to derail our dreams, we’ll never get there.
I think the most honoring thing you can do for your Mom is for you to continue to chase your dreams.
There is always going to be something that will keep you from chasing your dreams.
I’m embarrassed to tell people about the business I’m buying.
You’ve got to get passed the opinion of other people.
Check out The Millionaire Next Door. There’s one guy in there that sells salvage truck parts. Another guy who makes underwear for people in prison.
Be careful about thinking you have to have a business that has a high social status in order to be successful.
But it does need to be something that you are passionate about and enjoy.
