Working is essential. All of us work but most of us in only one job. There are also people working in different jobs at the same time. There are several reasons for this, but I can safely say that majority of it is to create an income sustainable enough to cover your expenses. We generally see this type of working schedule at the poor level of societies in every country. However, . I am a student studying abroad and as someone studying abroad, I have a lot of expenses to cover from tuition fee to your rent that you pay with a different currency. When all this combined, I wanted to do something and due to COVID and also that I don’t speak the language of the country I am living in, it is

You have to do the hard things to live the easy one.

So, I wanted to take my chances and started looking for remote jobs both would give me the experience I needed so that it’d be easier for me to find a job when my graduation is coming up, and also it would earn me a couple of bucks. As a background, that has been translating subtitles, books, comics, etc. for five years now, but the money I get from there is not much. I wanted to add up to that to create a different source of income. I found some, but it is relatively hard to find something that pays you remotely Alternatively, I found some things that suited my career plans and also would help me learn the job and MIGHT start paying me a little in the future.

Right now, I am working in a non-profit organization as a volunteer (pay is not in discussion, unfortunately), and as a in one company and also a . My days start at 6 AM, ends at 10 PM mostly every day. On top of that, there is the school I have to attend. I am doing all that basically for a cent on the dollar.

Motivation is the thing gets you started, habit is what makes it a passion

Now, since you have the background, it is time to talk business. How do I do that? How do I keep the balance between my life and my passion/my work? The answer is both. To have this kind of lifestyle and the passion, either you have to to do it or . The ladder, I believe, is a character thing that not everybody has. Working hard — being workaholic is something that not every person on the planet is excited to do and I get that. However, it is possible to learn this skill and master it, but it is not easy.

THE PERFECT LIFE

I wake up every day with the sole dream that I and my — of course, with its flaws. Having a clear mindset, a clear plan in your head makes everything one step easier and closer. These things might seem silly, easy or small but little details create the big picture, don’t forget. Have a clean life. Table, apartment, bed, clothes, kitchen. Life with an order.

This is what makes you tick, go the extra mile, take the risk. This gives you confidence and the idea of not a boring life because In psychology, for those who are interested or have knowledge about it, it is all about the mindset that you create within your mind. Think about it, in which room would be willing to work more, a dusty, messy, sloppy room where you can’t even see the floor or a room where ? I believe we all know the answer. Treat your mind as if it is a room. However, the mind does what it sees, so it has to see something tidy and clean.

THE PERFECT PLAN AHEAD

Now, this is one of the most important things that you have to do to have a productive day/week/month. Because , forget the work you have to do and your mind becomes that messy, sloppy room, no way to fix it without missing on deadlines, which, is vitally crucial for your works.

Write it on a paper, on an Excel sheet or use one of the programs on the web or on your phone. Plan your month, then your week, then your day. You basically can’t do everything you say on your list but

EAT WELL AND DO SPORTS FREQUENTLY

In a book called “Management and Psychology” by , it talks about how managers and CEOs that have a lot of work to do goes the day which has no protein value. It is stated that with a diet like this, your sugar intake is so high that it will make you feel bored, tired throughout the day because once the sugar that you eat wears off, your energy will immediately go down, leaving you hungry both for energy and for food.

In light of the new researches, the author, talked to a manager who was waking up at 5 AM every day, just bagel throughout the day and a late dinner — mostly take-out. Eventually, the author gave him a new list of diet and a suggestion of doing sports at least 3–4 days a week. He said to the author after trying that for a few months; that his living conditions have improved and he became more energetic, focused and able to work/understand well during his meetings, etc. What he did was basically to . The key thing is to eat small portions but more frequently. With this, you pump your energy up and also get the intake that your body needs. Diet is a vital thing to your life and you have to keep it in order. Again, the room has to be clean, tidied and smells nice.

TAKE SMALL BREAKS

Okay, this is something that most of the people forgets to do. You have to take a break for 15–20 minutes every 90 or 120 minutes of work. With this, because; think of your body as a weapon, during those 90 or 120 minutes you use all your bullets, and if you don’t take a break and refill, you’ll just try to fire up the pistol without bullets. Taking those breaks helps you refill your ammo and fire up your pistol again. Read something, walk around, take a look at your phone. It is vital and also, . As I have mentioned in the above chapter.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

There are a lot of things for success; to plan, and to do your jobs without the constant feeling of tiredness. You have to choose your path. Are you going to be the one that wins or quits? Tell your body that every morning to take you up from that bed. But, there are certain things you also have to follow for that. Be you and change yourself if it’s not enough.
