The Potential of Two Hours A Day

 

With our busy daily lives, trying to find time to pursue our passion or starting a side business can seem like a massive challenge. Trying to juggle work life with family life and personal interests, the idea of starting something that you are passionate about may feel like a distant dream.

However, what if I told you that investing just two hours a day, totalling 10 hours a week, could unlock a world of possibilities and potential for your entrepreneurial journey?

The Two-Hour Advantage

With 24 hours in a day, allocating a mere two hours to your sideline business might not seem like much at first glance. Yet, it’s astonishing how much progress you can make with consistent, focused effort over time. By dedicating this time each day, you create a habit of productivity that compounds over weeks, months, and years. It is what you do with the time you have!

Weekdays: Harnessing the Power of Consistency

Now, imagine this: you come home from work, have dinner with your family, and then spend two hours immersed in your passion project. Whether it’s building an online store, working on your blog, or developing/learning a new skill, those two hours become time dedicated solely to your entrepreneurial pursuits, nothing else. 

During these focused sessions, you can:

  1. Set Clear Goals: Define what you want to accomplish during each two-hour block. Whether it’s drafting blog posts, reaching out to potential clients, refining your product offerings, or creating a website funnel. Having specific objectives keeps you on track and motivated.
  2. Eliminate Distractions: Turn off notifications, find a quiet space, and immerse yourself fully in the task at hand. By minimising distractions, you maximise the efficiency and effectiveness of your work.
  3. Prioritise Tasks: Identify the most important tasks that will move your business forward and tackle them first. Whether it’s market research, product development, or marketing initiatives, focus on activities that yield the highest return on investment for your time.

Weekends: Balancing Work and Play

As the weekend approaches, you may relish the opportunity to unwind and indulge in activities you enjoy. Fortunately, with your 10-hour weekly commitment to your sideline business, you can do just that guilt-free. Whether it’s spending time with loved ones, pursuing hobbies, or simply relaxing, the weekends offer a well-deserved break from your entrepreneurial endeavors. Or even watch a movie on Netflix or Amazon Prime! A lot of Online gurus bash people who watch Netflix etc, However, I believe we all need that time when we are away from business and learning activities and giving ourselves a break!

Unlocking the Potential

Now, let’s crunch the numbers. With 10 hours invested each week in your sideline business, you’re dedicating over 500 hours annually to your entrepreneurial pursuits. 2 hours a day don’t sound much. 10 hours a week 5 days a week don’t sound much. However, 500 plus hours a year, now that is something!

Investing just two hours a day, 10 hours a week, in your sideline business may not seem like much at first, but the potential it holds is immense. By prioritising consistency, focus, and determination, you can turn those two-hour increments into the building blocks of a successful entrepreneurial venture. So, what are you waiting for? Take the opportunity, unlock your potential, and embark on the journey of a lifetime – all with just 10 hours a week.

  1. Hey Chigs, yeah this looks good. Didn’t think of it that way. That ends up being a lot of time taken for your business. This is provided you stay consistent and be productive within these two hours. Like you said distractions are the effort killer here. This makes me re-think how I should manage my time for my business to become more efficient with the short time I have.
    Thank you.

    • Hey Martin, thanks for your kind comment. I never thought of it too… When you add the hours up, that’s some serious hours!
      The key thing is to remain focus as there are many shiny tasty project on the scene LOL… Turn off all distractions and work for that solid two hours or whatever time you promised to yourself.

  2. Nicely laid out… great post. It does come down to scheduling the time for yourself as if you had to attend a critical meeting. I think because it’s for yourself, it tends to sometimes be put on the back burner. Having consequences for not attending your “time” for yourself sometimes helps me to stick to a schedule.

    • Hey Vanessa, thanks your kind comment. Yes you are correct about timing however, there is no right or wrong time to get work done. Whenever you feel you can do two hours of solid work, do it without any distractions.

  3. It is so true. The little efforts we put in every day pay off big in the long run. Although there are 24 hours in a day, sometimes the day goes by so fast, I find that I have the intention to get a bunch of stuff done, but then look at the clock and it’s already time to make dinner; where did the day go? Now I try to set realistic expectations and goals each day, and when I spend time on the more creative stuff, like building a funnel and working on aesthetics I set a timer, it’s easy to spend hours playing with fonts and colors, and I have learned it is important to limit this time as it can always be tweaked later, the important part is to get the funnel done whether it is perfect or not.

    • Hi Alison, thanks for your kind comment. Setting daily goals and tasks that need to be completed is vital. This helps staying on tack.
      Remember the good old school time table, hour lesson, 5 minutes to get to your next lesson which will be on a different topic… This approach can help too.

    • Hi Nakina, thanks for your kind comment. Two hours a day is something we don’t think about at all, as in what can be achieved in that time frame.

  5. Chigs, thanks so much for your post. It’s a brilliant idea to highlight the two hours a day because so many people don’t do that. We always think we have to work on something 24 hours a day for it to be successful. However, with affiliate marketing, as long as you put in valuable two hours every day as a minimum, I would say imagine how brilliant you’d be in a years time. Thank you for highlighting this and reminding people. Wish you all the best thanks, Atif

    • Hi Atif, many thanks for your kind comment. We all put in the hours where we can at different times etc.
      As humans, yes, I agree with you, we think we need to put in all the hours in. Sometimes we just need to turn off the distractions and get our head down.

  6. Hello Chigs,

    Thank you for sharing this assertive post. The way you presented your point made a lot of sense to me. Two hours of daily effort may not seem like much, but over 500 hours in a year can make a significant difference. Your post made me realize that it’s worth putting in the time and effort to achieve good things. Thank you for your inspiring words. I wish you all the best on your journey.

  7. Hi Chigs,
    I loved your clear description of the benefits of allotting a focused 2 hours a day to developing whatever business you are pursuing. I really liked the idea of NOT doing it on the weekends so you can get quality time with your family as well. This creates a nice balance. It’s challenging to find a balance when pursuing a new passion while still working and caring for a family. Thank you for your insights.

    • Hi Sharel, thanks for your kind comment! Two hoys a day, a lot can be achieve when all distractions are off. Personally, on weekends I will not do a lot, as that is my family time and therefore I will watch Netflix with family. Personally, nothing wrong it. When starting a new venture then yes, more hours is needed which will include weekends.

  8. I LOVE THIS! You make an excellent argument for starting a new business by investing just 2 hours per day. I think this is the absolute beautiful thing about affiliate marketing, or most online businesses for that matter, is you can launch them with this amount of commitment. Granted, the most you are able to work the better, perhaps reaching your goals sooner, but this doesn’t have to be a race. I know for me, I have more to dedicate to this business than two hours, but some days that may be 5 hours of “sort of” working, which may not be as productive as your strategy of a focused 2-hour period. Excellent post and great points made!

    • Hi Lauren, thanks your kind comment. I believe that with any business we must invest a certain amount of time, and I have noticed that by investing two hours a day in pure work, a lot can be achieved, as long as all distractions are turned off lol. There is no race at all, we all learn at different pace.

  9. Chigs,

    It amazes me how much can be accomplished when done purposely and consistently. With just 2 hours a day, that equates to 60 hours a month. That is 1 1/2 weeks of a normal job week in the U.S. Yes it make take you longer to get to your goals but if you focus on the right things one can reach their intended goals and dreams working only 2 hours a day consistently.

    This is great way to promote business building. Most people think they don’t have the time to start a new business. However, you put a glimpse of hope for those looking for option.

    Take care and keep posting.

    • Hi CJ, Thanks for your kind comment! You are right about people thinking they don’t have time when they do, if they just watched themselves in what they do with their time etc…
