…is to write a little every day.
The key is to set the bar lower than you think it should be; make it so easy that you have no excuse but to show up and get it done.
A crappy page per day, that’s all I need to do.
Three hundred and sixty-five days later, you’ll have a lot of crappy pages to choose from, and you’ll have plenty of good pages as well.
Another year’s worth of pages, and you’ll have a finished book.
The reason most what-to-be authors never write a book is because the task as a whole feels so overwhelmingly daunting. Most never even begin.
Commit to doing just a little every day, and the most daunting tasks of our lives become a matter of time.
