Working full time, where to find time to start a side business?

Hello Sebastian,

First of all, I would like to express my gratitude for the huge value that you deliver through your blog and your newsletter. I often use your advices, striving to become better and more self-disciplined.

I am a junior engineer working within the automotive industry. This is a demanding job and I work at least 45 hours a week. As I want to become independant (i.e. being able to work on my own projects from any place in the world) as soon as possible, I am starting to create my first business (I'm currently researching a niche market).

I have GTD'ed my schedule and eliminated most of worthless activities such as video games, TV shows and compulsive internet browsing.

more heart. more smart.

On Life, Happening Now

Ever heard the quote "Work smarter, not harder"?

Smarter is subtle. Smarter is listening. Smarter is hearter. Smarter is rest. Smarter is faith.

Harder is trying to make a square peg of passion fit in the round hole of conventionality.

There is a only a small gap between the life you want to live and the life that you're currently living. Each day we get an new opportunity to close that gap, to be smarter in order to create the life that we brings us maximal joy - a life that displays our passion and has the mark of our excellence.

Take one action each day in your favor that will close that gap, and you'll find yourself working a lot less hard but achieving so much more.
