Who has time to blog? As if we need one more priority in our busy lives!
There will always be a reason why you are too busy to blog, it doesn’t matter if it is kids, studying, long hours at work, inconsistent routine or just being tired, there will always be a reason!
I have been toying with the fantasy of writing a thousand words a day for some time now.
This daydream teases me with the 3 books, 310 blogs & 3 products that my imaginary productivity would make possible every year.
I had a conversation yesterday with Ulrike from Momentum Partnerships on productivity, she shared that it only takes 21 days to form a habit.
Only 21 days!
So we took up the challenge to write 1000 words each day, every day for 21 days, aiming to build the muscles of a super blogger and writer.
The reality for me is that 1000 words tends to take me between 45 minutes and 8 hours depending on how distracted/focused I am at the time.
(I am of course aiming for 45 minutes!)
My strategy includes:
- Making time to write first, before I get into the swing of the day
- Turning my phone and laptop to airplane mode
- Using the Lift application on my iPhone to check in each day
- Sharing the challenge with my peeps (including you!)
And of course… letting my competitive nature play out!
I will keep a mini diary of this experience and share with you an update each week over the next three weeks. If it only takes 21 days to develop a new habit then I should be a super blogger in no time.
What 21 day habit would change the way you do business?
What new habit would give you super powers?
