I recently came across Michael Hyatt’s blog post entitled “How to Blog If You Don’t Have Time.” Go on! I thought!
Hyatt lists 7 things that he does to make his blogs fit more easily in his busy schedule. The one that caught my attention the most was his no. 3 – to use a timer. He sets a micro deadline for himself, say 90 minutes, sets his timer and focuses to get his blog finished by his artificially imposed deadline. Hmmm…wonder if that would work for me. I feel like if I told myself that I had a set amount of time to work on my blog that mentally I might find it easier to accomplish. I frequently have what I think is a great idea for a blog post but then ask myself when will I have time to write it in a comprehensible way?? I find myself asking that question day after day until sometimes the idea is no more timely and I give up. This is a trick that I’m going to try. It is like exercise…60 mins and it is done.
If you want to make your blogs fit into your schedule, check out Hyatt’s ideas and see if any of them will help you. In the meantime…I got a blog to finish before that darn timer goes off! Good Luck!
