Common Obstacles To Writing

Common Obstacles To Writing

  • You’re busy: separate 5-15 minutes to write, first thing in the morning, and stick to it.
  • You’re intimidated: The important thing is to start.
  • You’re not motivated: Commit to writing to an accountability group and report to them if you wrote or not.
  • You’re distracted: Close all programs but the writing one.
  • Nothing to write about: Spend some time during the day thinking of what to write. Exercise, going to bed, the shower, and your commute are good times to do this.

Commit To Writing Every Day This Month

Commit To Writing Every Day This Month

Make a public commitment, to people who will hold you accountable. You don’t need to publish your writing each day, but just write at least 5 minutes a day.

It can be any type of writing and it doesn’t have to be good, so let go of your desire for perfection.

Set Aside 5-10 Minutes

Set Aside 5-10 Minutes

Setting your writing time during the morning is ideal as you haven’t gotten busy yet. But find what works for you and treat this appointment as unmissable.

Have a Trigger And Reminders

Have a Trigger And Reminders

It’s best to set your writing time right after something else you regularly do each morning: wake up, shower, brush your teeth, etc. Try to set it before anything that might lead to further tasks or distractions, like email checking.

You can also set reminders, or write reminder notes for yourself, that will be seen when your trigger happens.

Think Of What To Write In Advance

Think Of What To Write In Advance

Think about what you want to write during a workout, on a walk, in the shower, while you eat, on your commute, in a boring meeting. But definitely think about it before you go to sleep.

Just Focus On Starting Each Day

Just Focus On Starting Each Day

Turn off notifications and, if you’re not using pen and paper, close all programs but the one you’ll use to write. Preferably though it in the night before, so you aren’t distracted when the writing time comes the next day.

You don’t have to write for a full 5-10 minutes. Writing just a few words is all you need to be successful today, the volume will come later.

Report On Your Success

Report On Your Success

Report to your accountability group every day, whether you were successful or not. When you are unsuccessful, strongly commit to getting back on track the next day or even set up penalties or rewards for extra motivation.

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

Shankul Varada

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!

samz905

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

Jamyson Haug

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

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!

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.
