Every day. Two words. Tons and tons of practical wisdom.
Because success requires every day.
Maybe you’ve heard of these prolific writers. Maybe not. But check out what they’ve said on the subject…
Seth Godin (best-selling author of 18 books) “The deadline focuses the mind, of course. The curse of the traditional writer is that the publisher wants a book no more often than once a year. So procrastination is part of the process.
“But blogging? Once a day. Not every minute like Twitter, which provokes mediocre writing because there’s so much of it. But every day? Better write something, better make it good.”
Elizabeth Gilbert (#1 New York Times bestselling author of Eat Pray Love) “I abide by Goethe’s rule: ‘Never hurry, never rest.’ I never go into crazy fugue states, but I don’t ever stop, either. I’m a plow mule. I’m very disciplined, and I have a great regard for deadlines — usually my own.
“[Mom] … taught us not to become perfectionists, which is where a lot of procrastination and time-wasting occurs. Nothing is less efficient than perfectionism. Her great adage, which I still adhere to, was: Done is better than good.”
Mark Dawson (international bestselling author and entrepreneur) “I would commute back-and-forth for three hours a day on the train, and I still had the kids, commitments, family stuff…and I managed to publish just short of one million words in 12 months.
“The reason I was able to do that is I found the most perfect mobile office, which was the train…I’d get a coffee, open the laptop, put some noise canceling headphones on. I deliberately [turned off] my phone so I couldn’t get onto the internet easily. And I’d just write, I could very easily do 2,000 words in an hour and a half, getting there, and another 2,000 getting back.”
Do you detect a pattern?
And I know those are examples of writers. But their commitment to working at their business (which is also their craft of their skill) every day can, and should, be applied to any business.
You gotta get the big picture. Then you gotta determine the details. And then you gotta make sure you attend to those details daily. Because, think about it…tomorrow is gonna come whether you want it to or not. Might as well plan for it. Right?
Speaking of planning for it. I’m working on a unique way to help you line up your schedule every day. And I say “unique” because I don’t see anyone else doing it right now. But I think they’re gonna wanna copy my idea once they see how awesome it is.
