The one and the most important skill that anyone can learn for being successful is the habit of writing. I’ll do my best to explain… the habit of writing.
It’s difficult to maintain the habit of writing! If you want to make it a daily one, it’s even more difficult. It requires commitment. It requires creativity. It requires you to focus. it requires…
There should be a motivation, behind this.
Why do you want to write? What do you have to say?
I find it super difficult to do it daily. Doing it daily, forces you to sit down, and get stuff done. It’s true that it’s getting easier and easier. However. The very first start, where it requires you actually get the hard work done. the 80vs20.
If you get one complicated thing done that focuses on several other aspects, it actually helps you achieve other things that you don’t actually realize.
Take jogging for example. Right at the beginning, it’s difficult. You don’t want to go out there. it hurts. it smells. it requires you to have difficulties breathing. HOWEVER.
At the end of the day, you sleep better, you are able to focus better, you last longer in bed, SO ON. see? hidden benefits.
Exactly the same as for writing. If you want to be successful, start developing habits that require you to get difficult stuff done.
How to be successful by becoming better
Do what do you, and do it well. Do it so well, that others would say WOW, holy smokes, that is amazing!
Try being so good at what you do, so that other people recommend you.
Wake up, early in the morning
By being a morning person, it gives you the silence to focus and get things done. It says everywhere that most of the successful people out there are morning persons. There’s a post on medium.com that says “Why Waking Up At 5am Won’t Make You Successful“, however it states very obvious that helps you get much more stuff done.
By waking up early, it helps you prioritize your life better. Helps you grow up as a human being. Work in the morning, family and fun in the evening.
Out there, on the big world of the internet, there’s an article written by Rosie O’Neil, on 30 of September 2019, called
“The unexpected benefits of a regular writing habit(source)”
She said “Becoming consistent with those writing sessions really is the best way to develop your skill and confidence with words. Writing as a skill has one of the most amazing learning curves; I truly feel I get a little bit better every time I sit down to write.“I super agree!
Let’s make it regular!
