Updated: Aug 24, 2021

Lots of people have great ideas for a side hustle but very few go on to start something citing the lack of time.

You will never find time for things that are not a priority in your life. Your side hustle may not be a priority in comparison to your 9 to 5 at the moment but if you want it to work you will need to dedicate time towards it. The most successful people often work twice, sometimes three times as many hours as the average person. We spend hours procrastinating scrolling through social media or binge-watching a new series and then complain that we never have time. Here are a few ways to help you find/make time for your side hustle -

  • Wake up earlier - Waking up an hour earlier every day will force you to sacrifice on your sleep but with 365 extra hours in a year, you can accomplish a lot more. However, always aim for a minimum of 6-7 hours of sleep every day.

  • Go to bed later - An alternative to those who find it difficult to wake up in the mornings. You can try sleeping an hour later than usual. The key is to utilize that extra hour for your side hustle.

  • Use your lunch break - No one takes an hour to eat their lunch. Fuel yourself quickly and use the remaining time to get things done with your side hustle. Your employer or coworkers may have an issue with you working on your side hustle in the office and in such cases, it may be wiser to work in a nearby cafe instead.

  • Cut back on recreation - Cut back on the time you spend watching movies, tv shows, and browsing social media. Use entertainment as a way to reward yourself for completing tasks related to your side hustle.

  • Use productivity tools - Productivity tools such as Buffer, Trello, Evernote, Hootsuite, Planoly, and much more help you save time and get more things done. Related - 7 productivity tools to help you be more productive!

  • Learn to say no - At times you will have to say no to those hangout sessions with your friends or any other social invitation to work on your side hustle. This may be hard to do in the beginning but is important for you to prioritize your side hustle.

  • Outsource - You don’t have to do every single task yourself. Reach out to your friends or family who may help you out. Hire someone externally if it helps you save time and if you can afford the costs.
