Embrace the Research

Embrace the Research

You must block time to research topics you wish to write about. 

Ideally, you must read a lot, whether it's books, online resources, Reddit, Tweets, or watch YouTube videos. This will help you understand the topic and be thorough with your context.

Write Every day

Write Every day

Successful writers write every single day, not just on weekends or when some inspiration strikes.

Start by writing 15 minutes everyday, then shift to 30 minutes, 45 minutes, 60 minutes, and so on the next few weeks. 

Consistency is vital if you want to become a good writer.

Decode the Perfect Writing Time

Decode the Perfect Writing Time

You can’t miss out on the time when you are at the peak of your creativity. This is why choosing the time is crucial for you to start. This will help you make the writing habit a pretty smooth process. 

You must think about a few things before choosing your writing time. 

❓Will I be interrupted during this time?

❓Will I have too many distractions during the said time?

❓Will I find a quiet secluded space?

❓Will I be in the right mindset during this time?

Don’t Wait for Inspiration to Begin Writing

Create Temptations to Build Your Writing Habit

Create Temptations to Build Your Writing Habit

Habits are only formed when your brain enters a dopamine-driven feedback loop. The anticipation of reward makes us feel good, which motivates us to release more dopamine than we can crave. This is why you must use any habit you already have and attack it with a habit you want to develop.

For example:

  1. Write first thing in the morning for 60 minutes
  2. Go on social media

Find your niche

Find your niche

This will help you streamline your process and work on personal growth for the next 5-10 years. 

But how?

Identify the skills and things that interest you. That’s how you can find the sweet spot and play around with it to target the audience correctly. You can also play around the intersection between two niches.

Bonus tips:

  1. Try gamifying your writing ritual. Like you can start a writing journal and give yourself gold stars when you meet your goals. 
  2. Time your writing sessions. This will help you stick to the clock and focus on what you want to write.
  3. Always have an accountability partner to get feedback on your progress. Ideally, you should ask a writer and a non-writer for feedback. That way, you will understand the intricacies of the writing along with emotions that engage the audience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
