Now is the time to PLAN

I once heard a motivational speaker say that the journey toward success was made up of periods of ACTION and periods of PLANNING.

I know many fellow writers are using this time of self isolation and lock down to make progress on their writing projects. Myself, I have been typing out the revised edition to my book Paid To Dance: Asha’s Story Part Two. On Saturday, I sat down and planned out my writing goals and tasks until July, so I will have plenty to keep me occupied during this time.

However, as the world has grinded to a halt, so have many of our goals. I know there are many authors out there who have delayed the release of new books. Book marketing and promotion might seem a bit pointless when people’s attention is so distracted.

Drop the idea that you have to be constantly working and grinding to be successful. While we may not be able to take action on our goals right now, we can plan. Even amidst the overwhelming uncertainty, we can still plan. And when the time comes again, we can put our plans into action.
