Lazy secrets of a worldbuilding sorcerer
If you’ve got so much as a drop of worldbuilding blood running through your veins, you’ll understand what I’m about to say…
When you’re creating your own offers, working towards your missions, and building your ideal world, the temptation to completely throw yourself into the work all day, every day is real.
Especially in a culture where the HUSTLE! GRIND! mindset is sold as the only viable option for getting what you want.
But problems arise when all you do is work, work, work.
(Trust me, this was me once upon a time, and it’s still something I struggle with)
Your relationships take a toll (how can they not when all you want to do is sit down and grind?)
You stop taking care of your health (Sleep? Food? Water? Never heard of her…)
Perhaps worst of all is when you do take time away from your current project to enjoy the fruits of your labours, relax, recharge, and have some fun…you find yourself distracted by what you could or should be working on.
Full disclosure: this is something I’ve been battling with since I got to Japan.
Since we landed I’ve been doing the bare minimum; writing these daily emails, checking in on folks in The Clandestine Round Table, staying on top of client work, and making sure there are no pressing matters in my inbox.
It hasn’t been a ton of work, maybe 2-3 hours one day, and 3-4 the next.
And this would be fine if I was content to kick back, and flip things into maintenance mode.
But I don’t want to wallow in maintenance, I have no desire to build a monument to mediocrity.
While my world is closer to my vision than it’s ever been, I’m not there yet.
Meaning, I have work to do. Moves to make. Projects to bring to fruition. Ideas to test, and apply.
But I digress, these mental battles are mine to deal with, not yours.
So, lets get to the meat of today’s email:
You CAN build an online business that doesn’t require hours and hours of work each day.
You CAN craft your business in such a way that only calls for a few focused hours of work each day, freeing up time to do whatever the hell you want.
I say this become I’m a self-professed recovering workrepreneur-turned-worldbuilder.
Presently, for me, being able to do whatever the hell I want means exploring temples, stuffing my gob with gyoza, and being present with Alicia.
When I get back to my castle in Vancouver, it means devoting a little more time to growth, lifting/yoga, and building my relationships.
In the world of The Sorcerers Guild, gone is the HUSTLE! GRIND! mindset.
Instead, we narrow our focus to the right things, the tasks that matter most, generate the highest ROI, and go all in on them.
When you do this, you don’t have to work 70 hours a week to build your dream.
The Sorcerers way is about efficiency, effectiveness, and enjoyment…NOT working yourself to death.
