How To Recognize “Truth”There is a concept called “confirmation bias” which means we tend to find information that supports what we already believe. While we’d like to think our opinions are based on rational analysis, the truth is our opinions are more likely the result of years of paying attention to information that supports our current beliefs. I tell a story that made me question my own ability to recognize “truth”.

Can I get a job reviewing business’ websites?
But I don’t have 15 hours a week with everything I’m doing now.We all have 168 hours in a week. If you’re working 40 hours per week and spending 10 hours per week commuting. I recommend you sleep 8 hours per night. If you reserve 10 hours a week for time with your family and 4 hours for church and community. You still have 48 hours per week. All you need is 15 of those to build your business. I recommend you do a two-week time log and document your time to be able to see your discretionary time. You then break that 15 hours into 4 specific categories:
- 3 hours per week reading, studying, gathering new knowledge.
- 5 hours per week creating content
- 4 hours per week working with customers
- 3 hours per week marketing and building your brand
