You could say that I’ve been busy and took a lot of massive action…and I did. But here’s what I HAVEN’T done, and it bugs me…
I haven’t gotten the books written that I REALLY want finished. They’re not helping ANYONE by just sitting on my computer or residing in my head!
There are multiple children’s books, a Coffee Table book of my photography and a business book I’ve wanted to write for some time now. That doesn’t count the book ideas I have related to “Easy Book Illustrations.” Geez! And then there’s the novel…based on one of the most amazing “downloads” I’ve ever received! It’s been frustrating.
So WHY, in all the massive action I’m taking, are my books not getting finished. It’s embarrassing but simple…and it’s likely one of the SAME reasons YOU struggle with…EXCUSES (that ultimately come from fear)! There…I said it. The reality is that, if I REALLY wanted to finish those books, I could do so in under a week. Yet I haven’t. In spite of ALL I’ve accomplished in my hyper-motivated productivity, my books just sit waiting for another month or another year to pass by.
Obviously I need help (and some might argue that I need a LOT of help…lol). Trying to “psych myself up” to get them done isn’t working. And I know me…by the end of the day TODAY I’ll have new ideas that I’ll want to jump on. I awoke to another card game idea!
So how do I get over the writing hump? AND…how can YOU get over it as well? Here’s what I’m going to do…
>My wife, Kristen Joy, and her best friend (and brilliant business coach), Natalie Marie Collins, have been struggling with the SAME issues and decided that they could be accountability partners. But not JUST accountability partners for each other…that would be too easy. They have decided to be the “Let’s take this public and look like fools in front of everybody if we DON’T accomplish our goals” sort of accountability partners.
And THAT is when their conversation led to a much bigger idea…
What if YOU are holding onto the same kinds of excuses to not get your book(s) done? What if YOU have started a project (or 10) and have yet to finish any of them? What if YOU have a burning desire to tell your story, and don’t have anyone to “but”-kick you into action
That’s why I’ve decided to join them… in the Book Writing Challenge (and you should too!)!
==>BookWritingChallenge.com (Use promo code “challenge” without the quotes or an early bird discount!)
This Challenge is not short. It’s designed for you to get more than one low-content book done, or just one “heart-want” book written (you know, the how-to business, self-help, memoir, your story, etc. type of book that can’t just be cranked out in an afternoon)
The Challenge includes their favorite resources, gentle or firm ass-kicking when you need it, a high-intensity accountability group, and weekly hour-long calls that are designed for you to DO the work… not just LEARN how to do the work.
Kristen and I teach a LOT of courses. You probably own more than one. So now it’s time for you to put what you’ve learned into ACTION!
I want to see you have at bare minimum, a finished manuscript in your hands by the end of September. (Read the rules on the website here ==> BookWritingChallenge.com promo code: challenge)
And the best part of all? I’ll be joining you in the SAME challenge so that I can get my OWN books done…NO EXCUSES! That’s right, along with them, if I don’t get my books done by the end of September, I’ll face the public humiliation of not achieving my goals… and YOU get to participate!
It’s time. It’s time for you to start acting. To start making the time. To start setting the priority. To see your dream realized… THIS YEAR. It’s time for YOU to rise up to the Challenge, and make YOUR publishing dreams come true!
Get in now… before the early bird discount disappears forever.
