One of my challenges with writing has been to be consistent. This initiative has really confirmed some things for me and has forced me to be accountable.
On Dr. Oz yesterday, I saw a segment where he mentioned that people who make a public declaration of their intentions are more likely to follow through. I find that it has been true in my case. I wake up every morning feeling that I KNOW I need to blog because I said I would!
Daily blogging has really increased my desire to write and actually has helped me focus on achieving the goals I set for each day. Let me know if any of you are struggling in this regard and I will see how I can best help you!
Some time ago, I set Wednesday aside as my reading day. I fell off from doing that on a regular basis, but, realize the value of setting aside a dedicated day to read. Not that I don’t read every day (I couldn’t BREATHE without reading – lol). The middle of the week seems to work because I can catch up on blogs I subscribe to, check out new ones and read the magazine articles I have torn out during the week. (Tearing out articles of magazines allows you to trash the magazine and reduce clutter, INSTANTLY!)
It’s also a great time for me to sign up for things that I’ve bookmarked on my computer during the week and can now DELETE once I’ve subscribed. I have an e-mail account dedicated just to those type of subscriptions so that it does not clutter up the email accounts I use daily.
I’m VERY excited about my e-book and I can only tell you the title for now:
Opening Doors: How To Cut Six Degrees in Half
Can’t WAIT to share it with you all.
Have an awesome day and don’t let the weather outside be the measure of your internal season!
