Stop doing the small things

by Kylie on August 12, 2012

If you continue to focus on the small ways to make money, or the things that make you small money, you will always make small money.

That is, if you keep just buying things to resell or doing online surveys/mystery shopping for your extra cash, you will only ever make small amounts of cash here and there.

If you change tactics and focus on a bigger project or something that will make more money, you should make more money.

The little things take a lot of time, and in some cases a lot of your space. I’ve done lots of little things to make money, and while it was nice to make some money here and there, the small things like reselling are not where I am going to make my millions.

I knew this, but struggled to let go of some things. I had some items I wanted to sell and knew I could, but in reality, it is a waste of my time. I am moving beyond that and know where I want to go. By selling these last few items, I am holding myself back from the bigger things I have planned.

Are there small things in your life you need to let go of in order to allow big things to happen?

There is one big thing you can do that takes very little time: stay on top of the economy, and use discipline to buy and sell at the right time.

Classic example: buying a house can be a good idea, but buying at the top of the market can cost you tens of thousands. Having the patience and discipline to buy the same house in a recession will put tens of thousands of dollars in your pocket – without you having to do a thing.

Thank you for this post! I think sometimes we get wrapped up in the small things because they seem manageable; we feel like we’re “doing something” when we work on the small stuff. The big stuff is definitely more intimidating and takes more guts to chase after, but it is worth it in the end!
