DIMM – Does it make money?

One of the phrases I learned in another life as a car salesman was “DIMM”. DIMM stands for “Does it make money?” It was a question that we were supposed to ask ourselves when looking over our daily activities.

The concept of DIMM is very simple. Take a few minutes today and look at the things you do every day online. Look at each one individually and ask yourself Does it make money? If it doesn’t ( either directly or indirectly ), then you need to cut that activity out of your daily grind. I’ve written before about lack of time, and the effect it can have on your success.

If you really take DIMM to heart, I’m sure you can find a few extra minutes ( or even hours for some of you! ) to work towards making money online. That is the goal here, after all, isn’t it?

    Just don’t go too extreme, free time is good as well.

    Absolutely. I guess I should’ve specified what I meant, because now that I read it, it isn’t exactly what I meant.

    If you have, say, 3 hours a day dedicated to online activities ( blogging / marketing / affiliate programs, etc ) , that’s what you need to focus on cutting the fat from. Rest, relaxation, and spending some time with your family should always come first, and are necessary to your mental health!

    Green Llama is a place to learn about making money online. Any ideas or walk-through's I have, I'll post here for your enjoyment. I also do product and online service reviews.

    However, I tend to run off on tangets quite often. I call this part of the site 'random crap'. Basically I'll go off and post about whatever I want, just to keep things interesting. Have fun and stay tuned.
