We all do better with a deadline, but how about giving yourself multiple deadlines at the same time? Giving yourself a lot of deadlines will make you do more of your work faster. In order to publish 1 book every month, I am working on a majority of the books over the summer so I won’t have to work on as many of them when school starts.
I created a list of books that I needed to get done over the summer. Then I created a deadline for when each book should be done. Book A has to be done this week and Book B has to be done within 2 weeks. I’ll have those books done before school starts, and I’ll have to work on some of my books throughout the year.
I always do better when I give myself a deadline. Deadlines force me to get more of my work done faster. There is no more sitting on the couch and watching TV.
Give yourself deadlines to do your work. This is your time!
