Back in the early days of my writing career I began a small morning ritual. I would wake up, snag my cup of coffee, and knock out however many articles I needed to write that day in order to achieve my desired income for the week.
Once I finished writing my daily quota of articles I was free to pursue my day.
That small routine forced me to do the work I needed to do in order to survive. Even better, the habit forced me not to procrastinate.
Times have changed since those very early days. I no longer rely on content producing to pay my bills. Instead, I spend a portion of my time each week at a public job that meets my financial needs. As a result, it has become far too easy to allow my writing to be pushed aside.
That will stop with this new year. Every single morning I intend to write a single blog post as I sit down with my morning cup of Joe.
Just one post.
I can do one post.
A single post, written every day, will result in 365 posts on this website by the end of the year. That will allow me to achieve my writing goal for 2019.
What small routine can you incorporate into your life with this new year that will take you closer to achieving your goals? Please share your stories in the comments below.
