One month of work can usually be done in an night.
Most (definitely not all) people “beat around the bush,” and “dink around” to a tragic point.
For years I’ve heard this;
“I’m going to write the book as soon as….”
Write 1000 words per day minimum. Every day for 80 days.
Now you are done writing.
End of story.
It’s not a “goal” to write 1000 words per day, it’s like eating dinner. You just DO IT.
Most people babble a couple THOUSAND meaningless words at lunch. Instead of having lunch, grab your laptop and crank in 1000 words. Can you type 50 words per minute?
1000 words is 20 minutes.
You can do it.
If you have to research, great (the lazy don’t and this makes you far better already than your future competitor!), go ahead and research and THEN type 1000 words at lunch.
Once simple stuff like this is habitual….it’s habitual. It’s the same as eating or sleeping.
Daily actions are usually moderate in scale but the value of them is cumulative in effect. In fact these daily actions must become addictive. It doesn’t matter whether it’s “fun” or not.
What happens is after you have written your 1000 words per day for a month or two you become addicted to the behavior. It’s the same principle that is used for creating addictive video games.
Cause someone to do an addictive and repetitive behavior which constantly needs completion in some way and you cement that addiction.
Now you can say that Kevin Hogan encourages positive programming…as you can see…
