One thing that keeps me going and keeps me focused is challenges. If I don’t stretch myself and try something new, I’ll keep doing the same old same old. Challenges keep us strong and keep us on course to finish the race.
In today’s episode I’m talking about a new challenge I’m giving myself and why you should consider doing your own 30-day challenge. I’ll give you some examples from my past and how they’ve helped shape me.

For years you’ve had this dream of finally writing the book of your dreams, getting it published, and becoming the next New York Times Bestseller. You sit down to write, make some real progress this time, but you can’t move forward? Sound like you?
This feeling of being stuck and not getting the book written is a story most writer’s tell me. Truth to tell, I’ve had writers tell me they’re shocked at how many words I write a year. I write over 100,000 words a year, just on this blog. That isn’t counting what I do for other organizations or my own books.
The craft of writing is a lot of hard work. Yes, those easy moments happen when the Muse shows up. But the line that separates good writers from hacks, is the line between writing and rewriting.
A good craftsman is good at working on every page, sentence, and syllable. He doesn’t just stop at the first draft, he works and reworks his material until he’s satisfied, then it’s off to the editor.
Life is taxing. The more we do, the more we can easily forget what’s important. When it comes to writing, blogging and work, if you don’t have a solid to-do list you will start failing at everything you do.
In today’s episode, I want to dive into the much-needed to-do lists that we all hate putting together. But without this one vital piece of our professional life, we’ll never get anything accomplished.

We all need to find the perfect solution for all our paper and writing needs. Well, look no further than one of the best programs I’ve found, Evernote. This program has helped me go nearly paperless at home and at the office.
As a writer, I am looking for ways to write faster, and more efficiently. But the problem most encounter, they can’t access their work anywhere else than their computer. Enter Evernote.
We have a problem as humans. Each year we desire to set New Year Resolutions and two weeks later, we quit. There are so many ways we can track our goals. And seeing true accomplishment is easier than you think.
When we begin taking the time to follow through our goals, we can actually achieve them. But if we don’t, the likelihood of seeing them come to fruition lessens.
