Success in life comes from failure. And failure comes from doing. The more you do, the more you fail at, the more success you have.
Thus, today I’m setting the goal to be prolific, to increase my creative output. I challenge you to do the same. Ironically I decide this at a time when I have almost no free time. But prolificacy doesn’t require as much time as we think; it requires taking more action.
The people I admire constantly create new things. Some of them succeed, some of them fail. But part of how I measure my success in life is through my accomplishments. And creating things (and finishing them) makes my life more successful.
To be prolific on this blog, my guidelines will be:
- Write at least 1 post a day
- Spend no more than 15 minutes
- Aim for 10 minutes writing and 5 minutes editing
As I discover additional best practices, I will write about them as well.
I may fail, but at least I will have tried. Because while I haven’t been, I earnestly believe you can learn to be prolific.
Do you have any other ideas on how I can become prolific?
