i love the idea of starting before you say you’re going to start

WordPres admin blogging screen shot
The top post (10 – Scheduled) will be written in seven days. (3 was written yesterday, 4 is this one)

 

Book writing begins today.

It’s not supposed to start until April Fools Day (a week from today) 2016.

i love the idea of starting before you say you’re going to start.

It’s kinda like being a kid on Christmas eve, trying to be patient for Christmas morning.

By the way, Christmas morning quickly becomes obsolete without what happens tomorrow. It took decades before this thought crossed my mind.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Now is the time for the 9th grader to do it

YuGiOh tournament
It’s my responsibility to teach him things school and Church will never teach.

 

Multiple ice-breakers from the past week are under my belt in an effort to challenge a 9th grader to write his first book before he becomes a sophomore – he’ll have April through August.

(i also, prematurely, challenged him back in first semester to publish before 9th grade ended)

So now is the time to do it.

He wants to be a writer.

Writers write books.

Might as well get the first one done early.

It will make the second one so much easier.

Wait. What?

i think i hear the echo of my own voice.

Cool.

If your goal isn’t impossible, you’re not reaching high enough

Disney leadership books top
Six different Disney Business books are waiting to be written.

 

Some pieces falling into place for my next impossible goal:

The habit of two hours of daily writing (seven days a week).

Check.

More than enough content for six different Disney Business books.

Check.

A transformational and portable storyboard process to make writing streamlined and focused.

Check.

An irrepressible desire to help people solve their unsolvables.

Check.

A publishing process that’s affordable and efficient.

Check.

An indomitable will.

Check.

What’s impossible in your life?

Disney leadership book storyboard
Had a storyboard epiphany. This storyboard is from 2009-2010.

 

What’s impossible in your life?

Take solace in remembering that something is impossible only until the first person does it.

Can i write a (Disney) book a month for the next six months?

Insight: A book is exponentially easier to write when you use storyboards to organize your thoughts.

Does it matter? Is it possible?

Self publishing forms
The book was written, designed, and printed before i announced it publicly.

 

Does your project matter?

Does it matter enough for the risk and the effort you’re putting into it?

 

Yes. In fact, it is so important i left a 30-year Disney career at a company i adore.

 

Is it possible — has anyone with your resources ever pulled off anything like this?

 

Yes. Hundreds (maybe more) invested in nothing but their big dream and built their platform while working full time in high pressure jobs. And they’ve never looked back.
