OK, so I suck at consistency. I will do Blogs for 1-2 weeks at a good pace, then, BAMMO life happens. I get sick, son gets sick, hubby gets sick or something comes at us from left field to knock my off my new habit.
I am really trying to get better at this and I have 5 things that I am trying to do daily in order to remain consistent.
- Schedule time to blog and do live video.
- Use calendar reminders to help me to do what I need to do
- Keep a notebook handy to write down Blog ideas as they come to me.
- Use FREE time to blog.
- Celebrate every week that I accomplish my goal to Blog and do live’s.
So the first one does not work on its own for me. I find that if I set a time to do it, something always comes up that seems more important. I also get grumpy when I schedule myself lol. So I also use my Google calendar to remind me of what I need to do daily now. So far it is helping. We are just in week 1 though lol.
Having a notebook handy is HUGE (hear president Trump saying that ;)). This helps me a lot! I will be driving along and think of a great blog subject. In my mind, I think I will remember it, HA! I now write it down in my notebook or dictate it to my Evernote. What a great idea I had here, eh?
I also will blog on Evernote. I can copy and paste it later. Waiting for a Doc appointment? Waiting in line for anything? DMV, dang I bet I could do 2-3 blog posts there. There are so many times that I can just be waiting, especially with my 12 yo son when I am taxiing him and his friends around town.
Now, instead of beating myself up about it, I will celebrate what I got done! I am in Ray Higdon’s group “Rank Makers” and I now set my weekly goals on Saturday and Fridays are when we celebrate in Rank Makers. It feels good to celebrate my wins! It also encourages me to do better and keep on keeping on.
Well, these are my 5, hope it has helped you, it has been helping me so far. Let me know what you do to help you stay consistent….
