14 years ago I was working in the computer hardware business.
I was selling high end servers and storage systems, and rapidly growing a dislike for what I did.
Money was great, but it wasn’t my future.
So I did something few others would ever do (nor was it probably the wisest thing I ever did)…
…without a plan.
No clue on what to do – but I had a passion to get a business up and running again (I had ran multiple businesses in the past before getting sucked into corporate life).
One of the first things I did was also the catalyst for my copywriting business – and my niche businesses that I now run.
But not just anything!
I found a book called “The Artists Way” by Julie Cameron. I was missing the creative side and found computer hardware highly uncreative.
One thing I loved about that book was the “Morning Pages” she had you do.
It was a mind bending exercise I went through every single morning.
Day after day, week after week, month after month.
3 pages of hand written…something.
That’s basically the formula – and one I loved then – and STILL LOVE.
Every morning, you sit down with a pen, and some paper (NO COMPUTERS!).
And you ramble on for 3 pages. No more – no less.
Once you get into the routine of this you can knock them off in about 20 minutes.
I re-started this process recently – and am back in love with the process.
It will fire up your creativity.
It will inspire your marketing.
It’ll be the best damn therapist you could ever ask for (*other than punching a heavy bag – but that’s a whole other conversation).
It will seriously get you unstuck and re-inspired.
You combine that ONE THING with the techniques I share in The Story Playbook http://www.storyplaybook.com – Novembers edition comes out next week – and you will take your business to a whole new, elevated level.
….you can read that one thing and do nothing.
…OR you can sit down every morning and write out 3 pages.
It’ll make you a faster writer – meaning you make more money in less time.
It’ll give you clarity around areas in your life that confuse you.
It’s simple – and it works.
The choice is yours – do nothing, or do this and see rapid results that you will love!
I know which path will make you the most money – and doing nothing will get you nothing.
Try it for a month – every day – 3 pages.
Combine it with Story Playbook #3 and your year will end with a very profitable finale!
Have a great weekend.
