The title of this post is a direct quote from Tim Ferriss author of The Four Hour Work Week, The Four Hour Body and his latest bestseller – Tools of Titans. All of which are 800 pages plus of best seller, so lets face it, whatever he does works. His advice is to focus on two crappy pages a day no matter what. It’s achievable, it’s simple and it works, no matter what is going on in the rest of your life – kids, meetings, madness and all that usual stuff.
It’s become my mantra, in fact along with my life goals it’s stuck to the keyboard on my laptop. Two crappy pages a day. Keep going. Don’t leave the desk until they’re done. And I think it’s working. In fact, I know it’s working because the posts on this blog are getting closer and closer together. I’m not brave enough yet to commit to regular days, but the time is coming.
Hopefully along with all this consistent practice, my writing is improving. Consistency has never been my strong point, but I’m working on it. I’ve got an old school calendar on my office wall and I put all my results on it – weight loss, exercise goals, meditation goals and blog posts, I’m a highly visual person, so I like to see it all in a glance because it motivates me to keep going.
So roll on tomorrow and two more crappy pages.
