What could would you achieve in your writing career if you wrote more? I've had several questions this week about procrastination.
Believe it or not, eliminating procrastination is easy.
It takes just three words, as I pointed out in this article, "Kill Writing Procrastination for Good with Three Words":
Here they are: Do Your Best.
“Do your best” frees you from your tendency to procrastinate, because the operative word is: DO. Just do it. When you do – you write – you also commit to doing your best, in that particular moment.
Writing is both a discovery and a learning experience. The only way you learn how to write is by writing.
It’s both a craft and a skill. If you have innate talent, that’s good, but writing talent is useless without application.
Just get started. Stop writing in your head. Get something -- anything -- down on paper.
As soon as you're commissioned to write a project, spend ten minutes writing down some initial thoughts. This short session kills inertia: you've started the project. Overcoming inertia is always the hardest part.
Remember inertia each day. As soon as you sit down at your desk, write something -- again, anything at all -- for ten minutes.
If you remember to do this, you'll be a former procrastinator, and you'll get much more done. Your writing career will take off.
