Writer’s Write

Small Daily Improvements

I came across this quote by happy accident last week and it got me inspired. Have done a quick search and I can’t seem to find who it is attributed to, though it appears it could be Robin Sharma. This wouldn’t surprise me as the quote somehow reminded me of his brilliant book “The Greatness Guide“.  Since reading the book, I’ve wanted to write something in a similar style.

I got to thinking what small daily improvements I could possibly make that would make the greatest difference in my life long-term. And the first that comes to mind for me is to start writing. I’ve read plenty of advice given by writers and the one thing almost every celebrated writer suggests… start writing. Every day. Even if it’s only for 20 minutes. Even if it’s only a page. Writers write. Full stop.

So that’s the first daily improvement I’m implementing. And hey, that means I just got started. Yay!

Now I’m a wannabe writer so it makes sense that to hone my skill I’d need to write. But what is it that you want to be “when you grow up”? Whatever it is the key is to start practicing your art daily.

Writers write. Runners run. Swimmers swim. Singers sing. Golfers golf. Which reminds me of a great saying by Gary Player, “The harder you work, the luckier you get.”

For starters though, let’s try just try consistent daily practice and see where that leads. Who’s game?
