The "Yoda" Way to Write More and Earn More

"Do or do not. There is no try."
~ Yoda

If you want to earn more money from your writing (and don't we all), the 'so-easy-you'll-kick-yourself' thing to do is eliminate one 3-letter word from your vocabulary.

And that word is 'try.'

When you want to get a writing project done, don't say you're going to try and finish it.

Instead, replace "I'll try to get this writing done" with "I'm going to get this writing done."

And then just sit down and do it.

No excuses.

Saying you're going to try and get something done means you're already seeing yourself NOT doing it.

It's like when someone says "I'll try and make it to the party tonight," which really means they're not going to make it at all. And we all know that.

And it's the same when you say you're going to try and get more writing done or try and get a project finished. As soon as you use the word 'try' you're already defeated.

So starting today, remove the word 'try' when you're talking about getting things done.

As the wise Yoda said to Luke Skywalker in the movie Star Wars, "There is no try."

So tell yourself you'll do it and you will.

But tell yourself you'll try, and you won't.

Now...sit down and write.
