Waiting Time? Or Wasting Time?

Endless Time

The abstract concept we call time is a funny thing.

We all know what it is. We all struggle to define, explain and actually understand it.

The same applies to the idea of wasting time. We experience it, but often can’t really describe it.

That’s why this excerpt from an article on ‘Mind Pickings‘ about waiting, with quotes from Jason Farman‘s book, caught my eye:

“Waiting points to our desires and hopes for the future; and while that future may never arrive and our hopes may never be fulfilled, the act of reflecting on waiting teaches us about ourselves.

Jason Farman, in ‘Delayed Response

And it embarked upon an intriguing explanation about the concept of time itself.

3 Ways To Find Out If Your Niche Is Profitable

Profitable Niche

I created my first infoproduct way back in 1997.

It was for a very small and specialized niche. Since then, that little ebook has sold over SEVEN HUNDRED copies. Even today, it sells a few every month – with no effort at all.

That didn’t happen because I was smart – but because I was lucky. Very lucky.

Intuitively I had picked a product that was in high demand by the target audience. One they simply had to have because it offered the solution to a pressing problem that couldn’t be solved in any other way.
