The Parking Attendant Problem (Identifying Your Passions, Part 2/2)

Watch me discuss the so-called “Parking Attendant Problem” on YouTube here:

Missed part one of this series where I discussed how you can identify your passions before sitting down to start your business? Watch it on AT&T’s Networking Exchange blog here.

Today I’m going to talk about the so-called “Parking Attendant Problem” which is a way to help you figure out how to pursue your dreams and goals while you still have a job. While some people have what it takes to just jump out there and risk it all on a crazy business or idea, that’s not for everyone. I’m personally a little more conservative with how I approach risk, and I like to be on the safe side of things and calculate that risk.

What I mean by that is, if you’re working a day job and trying to figure out how to pursue your passion, you have to figure out how to maximize your time during the day to work a little each day on your dream. As I like to say:

You work a day job from 9am to 5pm. But you create history from 5pm to 9am.

We’ve all got tons of life things that get in the way, but we also waste tons of time. Think about how many people are at their jobs wasting time on Facebook? Parking attendant are the best example, since they have TONS of downtime in-between handling customers coming in and out of their garage. They could be the best web designers in the world with all that free time!
