It’s every writer’s dread. “Writer’s block” – dun dun duuun! It just hits you out of nowhere and you’re staring at your computer screen, cursor blinking while thinking “now what?” The good news – getting rid of this thorn in your side doesn’t take magic. You probably won’t be able to avoid “writer’s block” forever but there are some things that you could be doing to drag it out.
Some decisions are easy to make – like taking an exciting new job or buying your dream home. Others are challenging and push you to limits. Thankfully some of the hard decisions that I made have paid off. I often get asked why I did something or how I pulled a task off. It’s not always easy for me to give a step by step because I tend to be very “in the moment” when I’m moving through life. One thing I know without doubt is that when something isn’t working in my favor (job, relationship, whatever) – I change it to put myself in a better position. Here’s a small peek into things I’ve done that have propelled my life.
February is basically O-V-E-R. I know a lot of people don’t do the resolution thing anymore, but we all should have goals to reach by the end of the year. The excitement has died down all over my news feeds. I don’t see as many positive affirmations or confident posts about the year’s accomplishments to come.
Yeah I know life gets in the way sometimes. But guess what? It always will if you let it. It’s been awhile since I talked about productivity.
We’re friends, right? That’s why I love sharing with you!
“There just aren’t enough hours in the day.” It’s a saying that we all know and understand. A lot of us (ME) create lifestyles that keep us super busy and it can be hard to keep up with it all. If you can relate, give me an “Amen, sista!” Today I wanted to give you just one tip that WILL increase your productivity if you use it.
It’s been a little slow here at The Quirk Life for the last couple of weeks. Oh come on, don’t pretend like you haven’t noticed. It was the first time in awhile that I actually felt stressed. Here’s a brief recap:
-My grandma was admitted to the hospital. More on that in this post.
-I broke my phone
-I was surviving on minimal sleep
-I had to go to a funeral
-I had to turn down a writing contract that I was excited about
-My relocation plans were shifted into high gear (I’m in GA now! More on that in a post next week)
-I got behind in my work!!!
If you’re like me, you’re always looking for ways to maximize your time. I did a similar post previously & it proved helpful. So I decided to post a part two. Here are four productivity tips that you might need to apply right now.
My body had been going a bit crazy since the beginning of the year and I had no idea why.
So I decided to make a trip to the OB/GYN. Ladies, you know how scary that can be. But I needed answers! I didn’t tell many people about my results. I didn’t even post it on Facebook.
I’ve been needing a change in my life. Something drastic and totally uncomfortable.
A year ago I figured out what that “thing” was. I knew I’d make it happen but wasn’t clear on how. I’m always open to giving advice to people when needed. But on the contrary, when it comes to my own dealings I’m extremely private.
But then I started this blog. And in a short time I’ve found that it’s helped people. I get messages about how much you all love my content or how a certain post was helpful. This made me realize that I need to come out of myself sometimes and share.
Last week I talked about the reasons why you might not be reaching success. Since then I’ve gotten questions from people about how to grow their businesses and blogs.
