I just wrote a 600-word blog post (and submitted it to article directory) in 20 minutes.
I generated 4 blog post ideas while sweating in the steam room yesterday.
I bang out sales pages for fun.
I don’t have any magic formula (except I type fast) – English is not even my mother tongue.
I just keep writing. Keep doing it. Keep taking action. Screw perfection. Sometimes I don’t have the patience to proofread. I just hit the Publish button and move on.
It all boils down to PRACTICE, TRAIN, DO.
In Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell discovered that it takes 10,000 hours of practicing a skill to become “pro”.
In Turning Pro, Steven Pressfield talks about how you just have to sit down and do the work, even if you don’t “feel like it”.
In the Prosperous Coach, the authors tell you the way to build a blooming coaching practice is to keep having conversations with your potential clients – one person at a time. And get good at getting “no’s”.
My awesome cycling instructor Reilly said “Get this into your body. This is how you do things.” – I have a load of respect for endurance athletes competing at pro level – it’s definitely not an easy path to keep doing the same thing over and over again in order to get good, really good.
Are you doing what you want to be doing long enough, many times enough, that it’s “IN YOUR BODY”?
I just spent 10 minutes writing this post.
