“If you don't find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die.”
– Warren Buffet
With a net worth of around $108 billion, that advice holds a lot of weight. Buffet knew early on the benefit of creating passive income streams. When your earnings become independent of your active work hours, that's true freedom.
But it takes effort to get to that point. Before you can earn in your sleep, you have to put in the work while everyone else sleeps.
Paychecks might come on Fridays, but they're earned in the late nights. In the glow of a laptop screen, behind tired eyes fueled by ambition. That's when big ideas are born, breakthroughs are made, and fortunes are claimed.
The midnight oil is potent fuel. Something about the late hours gets the best out of us. Either a reward for defying the warm draw of sleep or simply the result of working long enough to outlast the mental blocks, progress always seems to be made after the competition has gone to bed.
But ambition never tires. If you have a goal you want to accomplish that takes time, you have to make the hours up somewhere. Sacrificing sleep here and there might give you the time you need to achieve it. Eight hours per night is a good goal, but if you can get by on six, you just created 10 extra hours that week to put into your own projects. Do that for a month and you'll have an entire 40-hour work week on your hands. The little sacrifices add up.
Time is an invaluable currency. If you can carve out a few more hours each day, you will have an advantage over the average person. And if you can earn for more hours than you work, you won't have to work until you die.
"Money Never Sleeps" original canvas wall artwork from IKONICK is your nightly dose of ambition. Feeling tired? Exhausted from the day? You can rest like everyone else. Just make sure your money isn’t.
