How Zig Ziglar Can Help You Get More Writing Done During a Short Week…

How was your weekend? I actually didn’t get any papers or what-have-ya this weekend, so that was a little different. And yesterday was July 4th/Independence Day in America here, so I didn’t really work.

Which actually brings me to my point–the long weekend. Good for internal batteries and bad for productivity.


Because today is Tuesday, and it feels like Monday. You and I will both have to shake that off–otherwise the week will end before we’ve gotten fully cranked up on our output.

Which is bad, because then we’d both feel kinda crummy, right? Most likely.

I remembered something I’d read from Zig Ziglar, and couldn’t dig it up again right away. But then I did manage to.

His advice (which you can and should read over this way) is to think of every day at work as the day right before a huge, fun trip and time off. Which leads to knocking off your to-dos in a heck of a lot less time.

It’s also great practice for planning actual vacations…

This is something I need to do more of–try to pack more in, and to accomplish more of what matters–especially as a writer, when I have client work, my own stuff, prospecting–I don’t think one lifetime is enough to say everything I’d like to say to you, to be sure.

Short weeks are awesome and maybe a bit problematic, but never to be wasted. Let’s make it awesome.

Until next time,
