Let me ask you a quick question. If you had an extra 60 hours of time, what would you do with it?
Go on vacation?
Spend more time with your family?
Finally finish the book that’s on your heart?
Create a new product that will create income for your business ongoing?
What would you do with that chunk of time?
Don’t you wish we could simply be handed 60 hours of time?
Well, think about this.
If you save 10 minutes per day, it will add up to 60 hours for the year.
Therefore, I am going to share with you three strategies that I include in my Write More, Write Better: 30-Day Nonfiction Writing Challenge. If you apply even one of these strategies and it saves you 10 minutes a day, it could give you 60 hours over this next year.
Sounds good, right?
Strategy #1: Apply the L.E.A.D. Process
LEAD is an acronym for the process I use for getting clarity on projects and finding more time in my schedule. In this case, we’ll use it to find more time to write!
L: Locating – Brainstorm, brain dump
E: Eliminating – What can go? What are you willing to put aside or sacrifice temporarily?
A: Automating – What can you automate? (email autoresponders, IFTTT, zapper, online shopping subscriptions and orders, groceries, etc.)
D: Delegating – What can you delegate? (family, housekeeping, VA, bookkeeping, fiverr, upward, etc.)
That is, do you enjoy finishing a project more or starting a new one?
If you’re like me, you have many ideas for new books, products, blog posts, videos, etc. However, you will get the most done and be the most productive when you focus on one project and work on it until it’s completed.
A Powerful Illustration
Let me illustrate what can happen when you focus on ONE project at a time.
