Q: How do you get so much done during the day, and do you outsource the writing for your blog?
A: I am not sure if I should be flattered or offended by the outsourcing question. I take pride in my blogging and have been doing it 7 days a week for years.
So no, I don’t outsource my blog posts.
As far as how I get so much done in a day, first let me give you a little background about me. I publish lots of videos and podcasts, I write on multiple blogs, put out eight newsletters a month, I’m an affiliate and co-founder of Affiliate Summit.
I’ve also got a wife, four kids and a dog. So I’ve got lots of things on my plate.
I’d say the key for you to fit more into your day is to compartmentalize your time and to work harder.
I could easily work an eight hour day and then feel frustrated that I wasn’t getting things done like I’d prefer.
But I work 12, 14, or 16 hours on weekdays, plus a lot of hours on the weekend. And I haven’t taken a full week of vacation off since 2003.
My days are split into two shifts – I will work during the day, stop for dinner and hang time with the family, and then resume work after the family goes to bed.
It comes down to whether you’re willing to sacrifice some other things to extend your work day.
I enjoy what I do, so it’s not a drag to work long hours. I mix it in the trips to the gym, errands, etc. and have movies and shows on in the background throughout the day.
I’m afraid there is no silver bullet here – just that if you want to get more done, become more efficient and/or work longer.
