Steve Pavlina has a good article up on his site about making $10,000 an hour. The concept isn’t to make $10,000 every hour, but to be aware of the ideas around you that might earn $10,000 over the course of the next year. He talks about how you have to think beyond the normal “I charge $50/hour” and start looking around you and identifying possibilities to earn $5,000, $10,000 or more with one simple idea.
To go a little bit beyond the idea of making $10,000 from one idea: I think it’s a good goal to create as many sources of residual income as you can. It’s easy to be so focused on the job at hand that you forget to create meaningful sources of residual revenue. Sometimes one simple idea is all it takes.
There are some other interesting posts up at Steve’s web site. He is currently experimenting with polyphasic sleep – which means he takes naps throughout the day and never actually sleeps overnight. He’s been at it almost a month now and has no plans to stop.
