Why you should write everyday

For many of us, the thought of starting a new routine or habit and trying to find time to squeeze it in to our already very full schedules can be more than a bit overwhelming. We want to do it, we know it makes sense, we know it will improve our life but there is simply NO TIME!

For many of us, the thought of starting a new routine or habit and trying to find time to squeeze it in to our already very full schedules can be more than a bit overwhelming. We want to do it, we know it makes sense, we know it will improve our life but there is simply NO TIME!

I know exactly how that feels!

If you are a multiple plate spinner and have many demands on your time already, then finding time to do something else could just be one thing too far-even for the most experienced circus performers!

We have great intentions but actioning them can be very challenging!

For many years I was that plate spinner-and it all worked out really well for a while-right up until the point when every single plate not only stopped spinning but fell and crashed to the floor-surrounding me with broken bits of my life everywhere I looked!

Of course many of those plates I was spinning were not even piled high with anything that was really enriching my life. Most of them were piled with stuff I thought I should be doing, rather than the things that were really important.

I knew that I not only had to clear up the mess I had made, but also I had to find a better way to manage my life otherwise I would never make any progress. It was a case of “Even though I don’t have time… if I take action what will happen? If I don’t take action what will happen?”

I knew I had to do SOMETHING!

And so I started small-really small because I knew what overwhelm was like and I didn’t want to go back there (and after all we only have so many plates in our cupboards to spin don’t we!)

So every day I started to write-usually lists at first and then as I found myself more in control and more able to think clearly, I started to plan and set some goals and even find ways to work towards them-all by writing stuff down.

And this only took about ten minutes a day.

I found a way to make sure I could write every day, I figured out where to do it, why it would make my life easier and how to get the very best out of my writing time. As I saw progress and change I found more time to write, but just those ten minutes a day that I started with were really valuable and life changing minutes.

I seriously had no idea where to start when my life was challenging so if you are a fellow plate spinner you have my complete understanding!

The way I moved forward was pretty simple, but if someone had told me how to do it all those years ago I know I would have saved a lot of time!

So-I think it’s only fair that I share what I have learned with you. I have a great FREE e-book that gives you all the info you need to get started on a daily writing routine and you can get it here

I hope gives you a quick start way to start making some changes FAST. Let me know how you get on by jumping in to my FaceBook group THE LIFE EDIT.
