How To Gain Two Weeks of Free Time Every Year


Imagine you’re granted a magical power. For a little over two weeks (15.2 days), the world around you stops. You have no duties, no stress, no deadlines.

This isn’t like frozen time in a film sequence. The world keeps moving. But you’re outside of it, an observer.

There is nothing you should or must do. No one can interrupt you. Your time is your own, and you own your time.

You can use these two weeks to do whatever you want, with the stipulation that you have to work on something that matters to you. You can’t sit on your ass and watch television or sit on your television and watch your ass. Besides that, you can work on whatever you like.

Wait, it gets better.

During this time, you never become tired. You feel as you would at your favorite time of day. You’re awake, alert, and energized. Fatigue will not touch you. During this time, you don’t need to sleep or rest. Two solid weeks to work on whatever you want.

Plus, your attention is constantly being re-engaged. You’re totally focused.

Take a moment and ask yourself: what would I do with this time? What awesome project could I work on for two weeks straight?

Remember, you’re wide awake. You don’t need to relax. You’ve got energy to burn and a big box of matches to burn it with.

Think about this for a minute. Seriously.

Imagine yourself doing whatever you want for two weeks.

I’ll wait.



Would you like to make this into a reality? Send me $299.95…just kidding. This is free.

So how can you gain two weeks to work on whatever you want? Here’s how:

Claim one hour a day and use it. Every day. For a year.

And you suddenly are granted 15.2 days to spend as you like.

You pick the hour. You pick the place.

But you have to claim this hour like a colonist plants a flag and says ‘this is my country now. Sorry, indigenous people.’

Lock the world away. Build a fortress around this time. If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it.

You have the choice. Every single day.

Make it your hour. Make it count.
