As someone who writes a blog post every single day, Monday-Friday, I can’t tell you how much EASIER this makes my life. When I try to schedule a time to pump them all out, or perhaps do ‘em “after the emails are cleared,” I not only lose my mojo but I risk spending double the amount of time and effort had I just sat down and written whatever was on my mind as it popped up.
Now obviously you can’t always just stop what you’re doing and write at the drop of a hat, but even getting into the habit of pausing for a bit and at least “brain dumping” into a draft email for 30 seconds could be enough to capture the essence of your wonderfully creative idea :)
I literally just did this myself an hour ago, and what normally would have taken me two hours to complete (I’m not a writer at heart), I was done and out within 30. ‘Cuz sometimes when you go to just jot down your thoughts real quick, you end up sitting there knocking it all out because you’re “in the moment” and excited about it! Which means the quality of the content will be MUCH better too – had you waited until your scheduled writing time later…
The same goes with this post you’re reading here right now – 5 minutes in and out while it’s fresh on the brain!
PS: This also goes for other things in life too – doing your chores, reorganizing stuff, painting, etc etc… Always faster and more fun when you’re in the mood!
