The race to perfection has created a mirage for the rest of the world. It’s simple math whenever there is a race to the top using only a few materialistic indicators like status, money, fame, glory, Top 10 etc there are 8 billion world population to compete with. So there will be more than 99.999999999999% of people who will fail.
This article is a thought experiment and it’s not for faith hearted who live in delusion or denial. You may skip this and move on in your life. I wish you all the best. Investing in myself is the best investment I start from the age of 19-20. After reading & listening to a few hundred books and watching & listening to 5000+ hours of content.
These are the 5 primary desires of middle-class society
- Health (Mental/Physical)
- Freedom of Time
There can be related desires and a few add-ons the priority will be based on the one which you have the less or scarcity of. More or less these are some minimum desires beyond the necessity of Food, Clothing, Water, Shelter and the Internet.
Will you be happy being average and having good health, enough money, freedom of time and loving relationships?Tweet
Let me take this idea and put it into practice for talking about Financial Freedom and Freedom of time for a working professional, Students and Business Person. You will have to turn on the imagination of your mind to read further.
One of the important pillars of financial freedom is multiple sources of income. The seed here is to increase your income, keep your expenses extremely low and invest the rest.
Let’s take a time period of 3,5 or 10 years. The objective is to double your income in that time period. Now what you have to track is if you can create a productive average day that could show a trend of increasing income and you can scale it to reach 2X by the long term point. When you achieve the target before the time set another goal for being average and doubling your income.
My recipe of an average day for me
- Having 8-9 hours of sound sleep
- Meditating for 20-30 minutes in morning
- Writing my daily blog post
- Slow work of the day.
- One call with a potenital buyer
- Working out for 1 hour
- Drinking 8 glasses for water
- Spending time with family
- A blanced home cooked meal
- Reading 3 pages of business or mindset books
My theory here is that when I will do the above 10 activities each day with weekends off and vacation time. It will automatically double the income in 2 years time.
