And I am constantly kicking myself for not making enough time for it, if any. I know the dream doesn’t work unless you do… LikeLiked by 2 people Reply What is this dream that needs most of your time?

I really appreciate it! 😀 LikeLiked by 2 people Reply As a want to be writer, I work on it probably thirty to forty hours a week. I try to view it as a job that I need to work on as many hours as anyone would work at an outside job. Admittedly, it doesn’t always happen. I try though. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply I know that struggle, but it’s a “must” struggle for becoming a writer. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Most of them, in one way or another. I got rid of everything so that I have no choice but to keep pushing forward towards my dreams. Nothing else to do. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply It’s awesome if everything you do is for your dreams!

LikeLiked by 2 people It’s a combination of hard/smart work and wise decisions LikeLiked by 2 people Yep. LikeLike Not enough, but recently decided to write an hour every day. Gotta start somewhere, right? LikeLiked by 3 people Reply Absolutely! Each journey has a start. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Achieving them, planning them, or remembering them? LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Let’s refer it as productive time, so achieving and planning. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I am so terrible with time. I struggle between getting started, and then having to stop. My inner drive is pretty much a locomotive that never stops. I’m just really terrible at leaping on to moving trains; and also resent having to jump off. LikeLiked by 2 people Once you start, do you need to stop? LikeLike Yes, because I can’t just do one thing to the exclusion of all else. That’s selfish and unsustainable. I’m the laser vision of Sauron, I tend to lose perspective. LikeLiked by 2 people This is the reason a schedule is required. You can do one thing for an hour and another for the next hour and so on. This way you start and do the things you want whilst you not ignore other aspects. Do you think this could be helpful to you? LikeLiked by 1 person Yes. But I’ve never been very disciplined. I delineate “space” with my responsibilities. When I’m at work, I’m a teacher. When I’m at home, I’m a mum and wife. Just always stretched out taking care of things in the back ground, knowing when stuff needed to be done. It’s bringing my “arms, legs, and awareness” back into myself to do what I want. And when you’re so small it’s easy for time to get away from you. LikeLiked by 2 people Well, the space has been delimited for you by the environment. If you want to work on your dreams, even for an hour, maybe it would be useful to change the environment for that hour so you can be whatever you want to be just as you are teacher at work and mum and wife at home.

LikeLike Reply Well, my dream is largely dependant on a PC and, for the past couple of months, the one I own got spoilt and it. sort of put a pause on my dream.

I mostly just dream Saturday and Sunday. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply We need dreaming as well as working. Both of them can create reality 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply For me, it’s hard to estimate because I’m not doing it all at once, but I think it’s somewhere around 5 hours per day so it’s about 35 hours per week I guess. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thats wonderfully balanced out. A good productive time frame. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Thank you! 🙂 But still it’s a struggle because I have a 40 hours work week on my normal job. LikeLiked by 1 person That’s why it’s your dream. You wouldn’t put that much effort into it if it wasn’t something you were driven to do. And more people would be so much more satisfied in their lives if they actually pursued their dreams, not just “hope and wish” for them. LikeLiked by 2 people Hope and wish are useful, but without action, things won’t get real. LikeLiked by 2 people Hmmm. 40 hrs as in full time for me, perhaps. 🙂 Well, I’m counting the hours I spend in my current job which, by the way, I consider a stepping stone to reaching my dreams. Beyond that full-time job, I have other sidelines, too. So probably I got 50 hrs weekly for my dream. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Wow, that’s awesome! You put in lots of work to achieve your dreams! Keep it up! LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Nearly every waking hour. I live a dream-life now that I’m unemployed. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply That’s amazing! I’m so happy you can live your dream life! LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Great question! One that has been on the top of my mind lately. Not enough, like most. However, I have set in motion a plan to fix that. Both my children and I haven’t been able to quite get in the swing of things since our move and school districts changed/school times changed… So, we created schedules for ourselves to serve as reminders to do the things we have to do, the things we love to do, and what we want to do! Great timing! LikeLiked by 2 people Reply It is so great you developed a plan! If you stick to it, you’ll get there! 😀 LikeLiked by 3 people Reply To be a Master Software Developer.

Whatever I choose to work on, I get hyper-focused. So, I end up working on that thing every hour that I’m awake. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I’m sure you’ll make your dreams come true!
