Monday Tips: Do your writing BEFORE you do your marketing

Here is a tip on how to organize your time:  Do your writing before you do your marketing.


I know that’s not what people usually tell you to do. Most people think that you should do the stuff you have to do first, before you get onto the stuff you really want to do.


But I’ve put the writing first, because if I don’t do any writing…I tend to go insane. (Just kidding).


My point is that you should do what you’re passionate about first, before you get on with the stuff you have to do, so that you don’t get resentful.


As always, put the timer on for 1 or 2 or 3 hours, and stop when it beeps. Get up, stretch, do yoga, grab a snack. Then sit down and get on with the marketing, or whatever it is that you really have to do that day.


Having spent some time doing something you really care about, you will find that you’re ready to focus.
