The 1 lie busyness tries to get all of us to believe

If you’re a human in the year 2016, you’re busy.

It’s a fact.

I guarantee no one is reading this blog post right now thinking, “Busy? Ha! After I read this pearl of wisdom from Jon I have nothing else to do this week. I’m going back to bed until Monday!”

Not all busyness is created equal, of course. Some of us fill our days working, investing in our loved ones, and spending time on our passions. Others pour hours into sending out Candy Crush invites on Facebook, researching third string running backs for our fantasy drafts, and capturing our tenth Rattata on Pokemon Go (whatever that is). But regardless of what you do with your time, you probably feel like you don’t have enough.

After hearing this sentiment time and again, I realized there’s a lie that busyness tries to get all of us to believe, and it’s this:

You can only start something important if you have a lot of time to work on it.

The problem is, it’s just not true.

Big projects get accomplished one goal at a time.

Books get written one paragraph at a time.

Ten pounds are dropped one workout (or one better meal choice) at a time.

New businesses are started one action step at a time.

Just because you have a dream that seems big or important, doesn’t mean you need a slow season in life to tackle it. That’s what busyness wants you to believe, because if you buy into that lie you’ll never start it.

That’s why I created the QUICK ACCESS level of the 30 Days of Hustle Challenge for this launch. It’s designed specifically for people who are in a busy season of life, but are determined not to let that keep them from achieving their dreams.

Here’s what you get in the QUICK ACCESS level of the 30 Days of Hustle:

• The 30 Days of Hustle PDF workbook with ideas, encouragement, and challenges once a day for 30 days.

• The 30 Days of Hustle Videos. One new video each day for 30 days. Don’t worry, the videos are usually only 3-4 minutes long.

• The 30 Days of Hustle Checklist to print out and chart your progress.

• And daily email reminders to keep you inspired, focused, and on point.

The Workbook and Checklist are yours to keep forever. And since I know you’re busy and may not be able to go through the Challenge in 30 days, you get double the access time for the videos: a full 60 days.

Listen, if you’ve got time to be a part of a community, you should look into the PREMIER ACCESS level. It not only comes with a private Facebook community, but also my “Amplify your Results” video and a special “Make it Through the Middle” webinar.

And if you want everything that the 30 Days of Hustle Challenge has to offer, the ALL ACCESS level gives you unprecedented access to me through a secret Periscope account as well as other features you won’t find anywhere else.

But as a busy person, I’m guessing the QUICK ACCESS level sounds right to you? It’s the most affordable tier, and you’ll get the same workbook and videos that 3,500 others have received in previous launches of the Challenge to help them achieve their goals.

“Life is short” is an overused cliché, sure, but it’s also true. You WILL regret the goals you didn’t strive to achieve because you were too busy to make time for them. That’s why I created the QUICK ACCESS level of the Challenge. You owe it to yourself to make a little bit of time for these dreams, and the 30 Days of Hustle Challenge is a proven plan that will help you make the most of those pockets of time you can give to making them come true.

Hope to see you on the inside, we’ve got great stuff to do together!

    “You can only start something important if you have a lot of time to work on it.”

    Truth this is a lie. Absolute (as older generations said it) hogwash.

    I’ve bought into the lie…and it has been through doing this 30 Days since Jan, I’ve learned just how big of a lie it is. I’ve tackled one hustle, but now it’s time to work…and I am going to be *really* busy soon with school starting up with our son (along with everything else myself, my husband and son are involved in this fall). I look forward to doing this again, with you and all those signed up, Jon. It’s going to be great.

    Thanks for the reminder, Jon.

    And it comes at the perfect time. I have been planning on starting something for awhile now, and have just put it off because I thought I was already too…you guessed it…BUSY!

    But we are never too busy to start something worthwhile, and something that will bless or assist others. And that is what I am wanting to do. If it is worthwhile it will prove effective, be successful, and something of less importance or less effective will drop away.

    If it is not worthwhile, then it will die also and that’s okay.

    The real reason I often don’t step out and take the steps to do what I want to do however is not because I am too busy, but rather it is because I am just…SCARED!

    I don’t want to fail, and that is a possibility. I don’t risk for that reason. I don’t take the next steps to move that project forward for that reason. And I lose out, and others lose out.

    So thanks for the motivation. I am going to take the next steps to make this dream and project a reality.

    Great post Jon. When I have a lot of things going on (every day), and so many things to get accomplished, I tend to set tiny goals for my self, so I can ultimately achieve them all. For instance, I will set a timer for 30 minutes, and simply work on one task. It seems when I specifically concentrate on one thing, knowing I will move on to another task soon afterwards, I end up getting so much more accomplished than if I were to try and multi-task through multiple projects. This method helps me break through the busyness of the day, and actually get things completed.

    Like other Mortgage assistance programs, this bill supposedly alleviates the struggling housing market; but the truth is that this bill is aimed to boost the mortgage finance giants, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac before they required to be bailing out by the Government and not for the homeowners who need it the most.

    Good article. We all want quick results but it doesn`t work in this way. If you have a big aim- divide it into small steps and do something every day. Day by day, step by step.

    I hear what you’re saying, and I’m really trying to understand. But according to the author and her book, I’m NOT the woman who thrilled him in bed. According to her, it’s the images of the perfect women in his visual Rolodex that thrill him in bed, and we wives just need to suck it up and deal with it. That’s the part that feels unfair, and hard to accept.

    I wish I could believe my husband. I wish the author had never shared what she says is the truth. I know I sound difficult, but this is really, really painful for me and a lot of women. I can’t read his mind, so how do I know if he ever thinks of me, or if he just says he does. According to the author, he’s just saying it. Trying to love me because he knows he “should”. That’s sad.
