I started off a new side hustle, and I’m already noticing that it’s taking away some of my gym and social time. I once heard that there are three types of success: Sales success (career), Self success (mind/body/health), and Social success (friends and community). I also once heard that it’s almost impossible to have all 3 at once, usually just two.
I guess this is a risk and sacrifice I’m willing to take. How else will I grow and discover my next thing in life?
Adding a little more value and energy each day to your side-hustle is like building a house ONE brick at a time. I’m learning that the daily/weekly contribution I put into side-hustle will need to be realistic and feasible if I want to sustain it in the long-term, especially since I currently need to balance it with my full-time job. It is often difficult for me to quantify whether the small amount of time I put could into my side hustle is translatable or sufficient enough, but I’d like to believe that it will all be worth it in the long run (like 6 months or a year from now).
