    Hi, I'm wondering how much time should I spend on the net, to earn decent living from internet. I'm always distracted when surfing which end up doing things away than I'm intended to do.

    To a some degree that will continue to happen.

    You just have to discipline yourself to get the things done to build your business. Set up a time frame in which you want to get certain things done, whether hourly, daily, or weekly.

    As to earning a decent living with only a certain amount of hours required. Not sure their is a magic number, if it was everyone would be applying it and be well paid by now. It's not that simple.

    Just work to use your time wisely, more than not.

    When it comes to making money online, it is not so much how much time you spend online but rather how effectively you use that time.

    I agree with freecashman - you need to discipline yourself. You could use a day planner and start marking down what hours you will focus solely on your business. And then stick to it.

    Another thing to consider, aside from the quality of the time you spend online, is how much you want to make.

    There are some forms of casual work that will allow you to earn $5 in 15 minutes of work just for performing simple tasks for them like finding certain types of websites or rewriting a few lines of texts to make it look more presentable.

    How are you trying to earn money online? Freelance work? GPT? Business promotion?

    You should spend as much time as necessary to make the kind of income you want. That will be different for each person. However, the time span can be shortened considerably when you learn how to focus your efforts and avoid the distractions.

    One thing that might help, as it did me, is to set time goals when online. By this I mean that before doing anything on the Internet, tell yourself that you will spend X amount of time dealing only with those things having to do with your online business.

    This works with other tasks as well. The best way to practice this is to start off with something manageable, fifteen or twenty minutes. After you are able to work efficiently and consistently within this period, extend it five or ten minutes, but only the amount of time that you are accomplishing work - no goofing off allowed! The reward is that you can do anything else you like after this set time period.

    This is something that you have to want to do, and be willing to do it each time that you sit down to work on your business. This is something that you have to get used to, in making it a habit. This is something that I have done in other areas of my life, as in accomplishing work at home from my "day job."

    It is really not at all about how much time you spend but what you learn.

    Get things done. Don't think too much if it will work or not.

    Just know that everything that you do online whether it turns out good or bad, should be a learning curve for you.

    I will agree you need self discipline, as I work full time I found it really hard to manage. I decided to wake up early so 5.30 every day, and I use the internet solid when I am not at work. Depending on your goals and the amount of income you want you have to spend time accordingly.

    I can't spend more than 30-40 minutes before my head starts to hurt.
