I want to speak to those of you who might be discouraged or have temporarily given up on your dream of writing a book. There’s lots of reasons for it – could be criticism, which is just horrible
If you have a dream you’re not hurting anybody by writing a book. So, move those people along. But it is real and it does affect us. But being discouraged can also mean because of time constraints or being overwhelmed by the project, or maybe even being confused by what you’re supposed to be writing or doing or saying – and you don’t have to be.
I’ve developed a method based on five minutes segments where you just plan what you’re going to say, then you get in there and say it, and then you stop.
Because the plan that you’re going to develop, hopefully with my assistance will be very detailed. So it’ll be a collection of ideas that you’re going to run down, run through or perhaps frolic through. You’re going to have fun.
You’re not going to be discouraged once you see this method. It’s simple. It’s fun. It’s easy. It’s fast. I’ve done three projects now with this method. First time was a little awkward because I was figuring it out without any guidance or tips, but that was also a very complex project. So I’ve proven it could be done. Those segments were like 10 minutes long.
Then I wrote a book once I kind of had some facility with the process. The next book I did in five minute segments, just super, superfast, bang, bang, bang.
But again, it was preparation, knowing what I wanted to say, knowing what I was going to say. And there’s a lot of other benefits to this method – you don’t have to tell anybody. You don’t have to say I’m going on vacation for a week to write a book. You really don’t want to make those pronouncements because that’s where the criticism and the pushback comes in our interpersonal relations.
You really can’t tell your boss, you want a leave of absence to write a book, unless it’s like Apple or Google, corporations that do support that kind of activity. Most don’t, let’s be realistic. Nobody wants to hear it. They need you to make the widgets or file the TTP reports, whatever that was called from the movie Office Space. Right?
So you don’t have to be discouraged at all because there’s an easy way to do it. And I’ve been there in life, right? When I was discouraged, and sometimes somebody with a positive message comes along (and that’s me) and says, wait a minute, you know, sure things get awkward, things get confusing, take a break, step back, and maybe reassess the way you’re going about your project.
And that’s what I’m offering you – a new way to go about it. It’s very simple. You already own the technology. It is fun. It’s, it’s plain fun to sit there and just do it because we all know about momentum, positive and negative. If you stop or get discouraged, you have negative momentum or inertia, or you just procrastinate.
But with the five minute method, once you start seeing the words and the pages pile up, you know, bang, bang, bang, bang, you’re like, Hey, you know, I could do two of those today or, Oh, you know, I’ve got four hours on Sunday I could probably get six done. Right?
It’s this idea of small segments. They are coherent. They are organized, they are meaningful. Because you will have done the preparatory work that I talk about in the program. So it’s really simple.
You don’t have to be discouraged about writing a book or writing your book. You can say, Hey, wait a minute – why would I want to write a book anyway – to have fun, to express myself, to be creative. So it’s supposed to be fun. All right. So let’s unlock that joy of creativity. I guess it almost sounds like a book title from the seventies. But writing a book is fun. It’s simple. It’s easy. It’s fast. It is using technology you already have, harnessing your creativity in a slightly different way than we are used to, but the end result is you have a book in your hands.
So check it out, fill in your details in the spaces below. And remember that today is your lucky day. Today is the day that someone showed you a simple, fun, easy, fast way to write a book!
