I’ve seen both worlds, so to speak, so I think I’m in a reasonably good position to address this issue.
Now I’m a hard worker, always was and always will be. However, as time passed, I ended up understanding that working hard isn’t enough, not by a long shot.
If you aren’t working smart, there’s a high likelihood of ultimately realizing that in your case, there’s no correlation between how hard you work and how much money you make.
Think about it this way: let’s assume you’re driving from point A to point B but that you made an orientation mistake somewhere and are currently moving in the exact opposite direction.
What were to happen if you simply “worked harder” in such a situation?
Well, you’d simply be going in the opposite direction faster!
Instead, wouldn’t it make sense to stop for a moment and ask yourself if you’re on the right track?
The same principle is valid when it comes to your journey as a domainer and/or entrepreneur.
Working smart is all about figuring out whether or not you’re allocating resources (time, money end energy) wisely. If you don’t do this and allow your daily routine to take over, you might just realize that you spent lots of resources in an ineffective manner and wasted a lot of time/money/energy in a way that made you actually move away rather than towards your goals.
Just something to think about
