Are You a Productive Person?
I recently read an article where the author made the feat of writing a book sound insanely simple. In fact, he claimed he once wrote a book without realizing it! I dismissed the article as being too simplistic, and the advice probably didn’t apply to me. But hours later I realized how profound the advice is.
So how did he manage to write books so easily? He set a daily word count for himself, and stuck to it. That’s it.
The reason why so many people dream of writing a book but never do is because they don’t know what “writing a book” looks like. Where do you begin? It seems like such a grand ambition that they keep looking at it from a distance, without ever taking steps towards achieving it.
What can you do on a daily basis to achieve your goals? You need to dedicate time and effort on a regular basis to make progress. Want to write a book? How many words will you write a day? How many hours will you set for writing? Want to create an app or start your own business? Then you need to figure out what you will do on a daily basis to make that a reality. Otherwise, it’ll never happen.
“There are seven days in a week. ‘Someday’ isn’t one of them.”
For my first book I decided to write about productivity. Not because I’m the most productive person in the world, but because I want to clarify my own thoughts about the subject and come up with a way to combine the advice I’ve read over the years into a practical approach.
And for this book I need your help.
I’d appreciate it if you can reply with answers to the following questions:
1) What are the biggest obstacles to your productivity?
2) What are your best tips to being more productive?
We’ll feature the best tips in the next newsletter. And I’ll share the outline of my book with those who reply. 🙂
On a separate note, many entrepreneurs with great ideas struggle to express themselves visually. Our Photoshop course will help you get comfortable using Photoshop and other graphic design software. It’ll also give you a handle on managing your own promotional material without having to hunt down a designer cousin, or waste hours scratching your head trying to figure out how to edit a picture.
Looking forward to seeing your reply.
