Get Motivated to Write, Market and Succeed in Three Steps
Share

Blogs, like all businesses, are living, breathing things. They die if you don’t feed them. And to feed your blog, you need to get motivated to write (or record a podcast, video, etc.).

But how do you get motivated to write when motivated is hard to come by?

This blog is a platform to drive awareness, attract leads and has been very useful and signaling that I know what I’m talking about on several occasions.

So it’s pretty important to stay motivated and keep up with it.

However, admittedly, the motivation just isn’t there all the time. And the question of motivation is one I ask myself more often than I should. Couple with me being the biggest procrastinator I know, and we have a potential disaster on our hands.

And quite frankly, advice like “just start” doesn’t work. That’s the problem to begin with.

So here’s just a few ways to get motivated to write. These tips are, hopefully, applicable to any process in your business.

SET DEADLINES…THAT WORK!

Deadlines for content are really the biggest factor for me.

Being the procrastinator that I am, I have an uncanny ability to keep putting this off until the very last second; until putting it off will be a lot more painful than just doing it.

In fact, this post is part of a monthly blog carnival that I participate in. As I write this sentence, the links go live in about an hour. So I have to write this.
