A while ago, I learned a tip from someone who worked for others. I don’t remember who it was, or what she did, but I think it was ghostwriting.
That person ALWAYS used the first hour of the day on herself. It didn’t matter how busy she was, or how much her clients asked her to do more work for them, that first hour was hers.
I’ve found that using that first hour to write fiction gives me more energy during the rest of the day.
Whenever I get too busy and forget decide to skip my fiction writing hour, I end up getting less done.
What do you use your first hour on? Doing work for others? Reading? Watching TV? Playing games?
Your choice matters.
I use different tools to keep track of my daily productivity, like KanbanFlow, Toggl, Action Enforcer, and The Journal.
That allows me to see that if I don’t start out with fiction, I don’t get nearly as much done as if I do start out with fiction. Why is that? I have no idea. Maybe something about starting the day by being creative.
Will it work for you?
I don’t know, and only you can check that out. I highly recommend it.
