Hi everybody, it’s Phyllis here with part three in the video series about developing a daily writing practice. In the first video, I talked about the 5 essentials for getting started with writing, and in the second, I talked about how to make it a daily thing. In this video I’m going to talk about why. Why you should have a daily writing practice, how it will help you, even if you’re not a writer. A daily writing practice is a terrific tool, used by a many successful people all over the world.
One of the things about a daily writing practice is it forces you to prioritize you, your work, your dreams and your goals. Starting first thing in the morning with a half an hour or an hour, whatever you can do, of writing, re-prioritizes and organizes everything else in your life, and it makes sure that you actually get the time in for this project. And that’s the point of prioritizing: you get the time in that you need to spend, and you put this ahead of other things that might feel more urgent or that are just habitual. And when you prioritize what matters in your life, everything else just kind of takes care of itself. And if it doesn’t take care of itself, then maybe it just falls away. And that is what prioritizing is.
