So I am someone who gives myself too much to do. So I do have to rein myself in to stop doing so and just take a breath now and then.
Writing blogs, books, online courses and creating video content, I have to manage my workload so it still gets done but I don't get overloaded with stuff to do each day.
The one thing I do on a regular basis in Brainstorm, because then it helps keep my content original and relevant to keep my readers entertained but help them at the same time. See picture of an example:
I don't clean my desk everyday or brainstorm everyday but do it when I feel I am needing some more inspiration and more fresh new content that is from my own experience aswell as sharing tips that have worked for me too, from other videos and blog content.
Stick to one notepad for the remainder of your work, as having so many can get you bogged down and like. This is too much and I can't manage all these notepads and becomes a burden rather than a luxury to write for a living.
I am filled with pride now that I am a full time professional writer and content creater, but also because I love being part of the writing world and be in touch with like minded people.
So do brainstorm. It doesn't have to be in one go, do some research to help you and doing other things can help you add things to it and then you be surprised with other ideas that come your way.
You can even get a magnetic wipe away white board to brain storm and some use a Konman board to brain storm with stick notes for a project like a blog series that I often do and other ideas you want to add to your content or projects.
Also some use a IPad to brainstorm and pinterest to create board of project ideas in, and even create one using Word, Publisher or Notepad onto your phone, tablet or IPad.
So keep going and do what I do watch a video or a audiobook whilst you brainstorm and take a photo if done in a notepad so you don't have to carry the notebook you use all the time and still have it to hand.
Many thanks for reading,
