When I was on my way home from the post office (or P.Off, as Mr. Fawlty writes), I was listening to a podcast, recorded by a man who made more than $27,000 dollars in 37 days. His goal was to hit $10,000 in 37 days. While I was wondering about that strange number of days, it suddenly hit me: Now I know how to make $1,000 in 7 days. It’s fairly simple, too.
There are a few things you must do, and then you’re on your way:
- Get an idea, find a project, or get inspired by something that can make you money.
- Set a deadline, e.g. 7 days.
- Get going!
Haven’t you noticed that when you have lots of time, you never seem to finish what you are doing? I certainly have. If I had a book to write, and the deadline was 6 months after, I procrastinated for 5 months, and then wrote like a mad man (or woman) for about a month.
Use this effect with what you do. Set a deadline. It keeps you focused.
Make a Challenge
In order to take this deadline serious, you could make it a challenge. Tell everyone you know about it. Write about it on Facebook, MySpace, your blog, Twitter, everywhere you can. Make it difficult for yourself to get out of this promise to yourself.
People will follow you. They’ll want to know how you are doing.
I’m sure this will keep you from procrastinating!
And before you know it, you have your $1,000 – or more.
Like I said – this man who made the podcast had set out a challenge to make $10,000 in 37 days. He made it in much less.
