I try to create habits that make my life easier. I’ve found that sitting down to write for a few hours at a time makes me write more in a shorter period of time. When I try to write something the same day as the deadline, then I’m thinking, thinking, “hmm what should I write? What should this post be about?” And it slows the creative process down.
By choosing the focus of each day, then I can set my intention on one task. Today I focused on my Instagram page, and I was able to plan my next 12 posts. That way, I was able to see how the feed looked all together (I’m excited about it!) and make captions that flow from one thought to the next – because they literally were flowing from one thought to the next.
Creating daily and future to do lists can help you organize your time and energy better.
What do you need to get done today versus what needs to be done sometime soon? Physically writing down my plan helps me stay focused, because I never feel like “ugh, I have so much to do, I don’t know where to start.” I have a literal list of everything I’m going to get done. And man, does it feel good to knock those suckers off the list, because I get to acknowledge how productive I’ve been.
For me, that tiny reward is enough to keep me coming back for more. When you see everything you’ve done, you realize how much more you can accomplish. It allows you to set your heights higher and to keep growing towards larger and larger goals.
Because we all have dreams that we think are “too far fetched” or only a “pipe dream.” In reality, we can make all of those dreams a reality if we really put our minds to it.
We just have to focus, do the work, and persevere.
And isn’t it nice to do all that in a time efficient manner? 🙂
