Oooh boy. This one’s a biggie.
There are already so many legitimate demands on our time that Resistance hardly has to lift a finger to derail us. If we’ve got a writing goal though, we’ve got to find time in our day to write. How do we do that?
I wish there was a magic pill to fix this problem, but there isn’t. The solution is rather mundane (and that’s leverage for Resistance too!). We’ve got to devote a block of time in our day for writing – early morning, late night, lunch breaks – and when that time comes, we sit down and write.
It’s that easy, and that hard. It requires discipline. I’ll talk more about discipline tomorrow.
