How Time-Saving Is This?

I always try and save time.

One of my pet peeves is wasted time because of inefficiency.

That’s why I try and have my own systems and wicked ways of how I do things.

The rest of my family laugh and say I have OCD.

But it’s not.

I’m just efficient with my time.

I have set ways of how I complete tasks whether it’s household chores, online work, or writing.

You see, I figured out a long time ago that successful businesses have efficient systems.

For instance, when I used to work in an office, we had a system for filing physical files so that if someone needed a file, they knew exactly where it would be in the filing cabinet.

There were also rules and systems for how we handled everything, with processes to go through and everything was kept exactly where it was supposed to be so that no time was lost looking for something.

And if a customer came in with a query, we knew exactly who to send them to and that person knew exactly what to do.

See? Efficient systems.

And if someone new started working there, they were quickly shown what we do, how we did it, and where everything was kept.

And it’s the same with a writing business.

Just imagine if you were hiring an assistant and you had to explain your work-flow to them and show them how you file everything on your computer and/or in your office.

Could you do it?

Do you have simple systems and work-flow patterns that you could easily explain to someone else?

For instance, if you wanted to explain how you handle your email, could you say, “If I get an email from this company, I deal with it this way,” and show them exactly what you do with it?

Or explain the exact process you go through to research and outline a book before you write it?

If not, then you may need to re-organise how you work to save more time for your writing.

The Miracle of Tidying

A few months ago, my daughter wanted me to find something in her room.

It was some important papers that she’d left behind when she went out, so she needed me to photograph them and email them to her.

The problem was that she didn’t know where she’d put them.

So there I was on the phone with her, and she’s saying, “Look in my bottom desk drawer,” and “Maybe it’s in that box in the top of my cupboard.”

She had me looking everywhere.

But what I couldn’t understand was how she didn’t know where she’d put them.

I’m just the opposite of that.

If she’s looking for something in the house and asks me where it is, I say, “It’s in the chest of drawers next to the window. Second drawer down, on the right-hand side at the back.”

I know EXACTLY where my things are.

I also keep my digital files the same way, so when I need to bring up a file I haven’t used in years, I still know exactly where it is.

And do you know what I gain from this the most?


I save hours every week by being tidy.

Whenever I finish using something, I store it in its place.

A place for everything and everything in its place.

That’s time management 101.

Hanging With The Smartest Writers

It’s a well-known fact that is you want to improve your life or your business, you need to hang out with people who are smarter than you or who you want to be like.

And you don’t have to be with them in person.

It can be bloggers you follow online, or people you go to see at seminars, or authors you read.

I was watching a seminar a few days ago and the speaker was author and marketer, Brian Kurtz and he said, “Only surround yourself with the smartest people. And if you’re the smartest person in the room, you’re in the wrong room.

And I agree. That’s why I only follow writers and marketers who I believe are the best.

One that I follow and have bought many products from, is email expert, Ben Settle.

I don’t follow him because I want to be an email expert, but I like three things about him.

1. He works alone. He has no staff and works completely by himself out of his own home. That’s the way I prefer to work too. AND he earns thousands a month from his emails, books, and courses.

2. His products are no-nonsense, and by that I mean he always gets straight to the point and doesn’t waste time with useless ‘filler’ information. I like that and I know that whatever I buy from him will be full of useable information.

3. He is full of ideas which I find really inspirational. By studying and disecting just his free emails I’ve discovered that he can take one idea and write 20 or more emails about it. And knowing how he does it is gold.

Having plenty of ideas is THE most important thing about being a writer, because without ideas you can’t write anything.

I’ve never had a problem with finding ideas and that’s why I wrote an ebook to show others just how easy it is. And even if you can’t think of anything, I'll show you how.

And once you know how to get your creative juices flowing, you’ll get 100s of ideas in just a few minutes.

Fighting Resistance to Writing


I fight it nearly every day.

I love to write and yet I have to fight resistance to do it.

And just because I beat it one day, it doesn’t get rid of it.

When it comes to sitting down and getting my writing done, I always seem to have an excuse -

~ Too tired

~ Too busy

~ Too hot

~ Too cold

~ Not feeling creative enough

~ Too worried

And then one day I realised what the real problem was.

It wasn’t resistance to writing.

It was resistance to sitting down and getting started.

Once I start working it’s easy to keep going.

I just have to start.

And it works with everything.

Once I fight the resistance to begin, it’s easy to keep going.

All it takes is to stop making excuses.

And just start.
