One of the best ways to write every day regardless of what else is going on in your life is to decide how many hours you will write during the upcoming week. That way, when the week starts, you will have an idea of how much writing you can do. Generally, the more planning you can do and the more intentions you set to write, the more successful you will be. This is because when you form an intention to write for a concise amount of time every day or even most days, you will have more of a chance to write than if you didn’t set an intention to write. Creating your intention is the first step in creating your goals. This is because there is a connection between setting an intention and bringing about what you intend. For instance, you may create an intention to write eight to ten hours a week. This intention should then lead you to write down what you will complete towards achieving your writing goals. I realize that this may sound a bit awkward at first. Intentions are abstract concepts which are hard to grasp. But there is a lot of psychological and philosophical proof that setting intentions really works. So, at least try it for a few weeks and see if it works for you. I’m pretty sure you will be surprised by the progress you make in getting your butt in your chair and writing. Like all habits, it can take up to 21 days to form them. So, please be patient and make sure you are as consistent as you can be. Take some time out on Sunday to set your intentions. It shouldn’t take more than a few minutes of your time. Just be sure to write down your intentions. Unless you do, you may forget them. But more than that, writing down your intention can also help reinforce the intention in your mind.
