Manage your priorities and you'll manage your time. Manage your priorities and you'll manage your time. If that’s the case, and you want to write a book, you need to put ‘write a book’ at the top of your list of priorities at some point, otherwise it will never get done. It’s easy to think you are too busy but the truth is that you haven’t made a decision that you going to follow through with your desire to write a book. In the absence of that firm decision, your book drifts. Something else comes along and takes up the time you could have spent on it.
Do you have concerns about writing a book that are stopping you from getting your book written and published? I know many business owners who want to write a book - they are passionate about it, they want to express their ideas and they want to make their mark in the world but somehow, they keep delaying and prevaricating. Do you find yourself doing this too? If you do it might be worth addressing some of your concerns and fears so you can finally move on and get started with your book.
Before you get started publishing your book you need to get organised. If you walk into a publishing house it can look as if there are random piles of paper everywhere – that’s usually because publisher’s lack the space they need to store the proofs they have for their many titles. In fact, editors are, of necessity, staggeringly well-organised. If they weren’t, they would sink under the sheer weight of paper in their offices.
