I’ve always been impressed with Tiffany Lambert and her ability to write 10+ pages a day for her PLR store. Writing that many pages never came easy for me, but I have been picking up the pace lately, and surprisingly, I was able to produce five PLR articles in a single day!
Fortunately, that isn’t the only work I was able to complete; there were countless graphics, a blog installation, several Aweber opt-in pages, with the afternoon spent on blog commenting and writing a blog post. A regular F5 tornado, if I care to admit it.
What was my secret? I made it a point to stay focused and used the time wisely. Here are a few other tidbits that are important to share with you so you can follow my example:
Break It Down
Do not dwell on the bigger picture. Break your tasks into more manageable moments. Establish which of the elements on your list are crucial to finish first, and then set out to get them done. (Hint: always choose the moneymakers first!)
Collaborate Your Efforts
If you are researching content, pool your resources. If I know I want to write more than one article a day, I work on a series rather than a single topic at a time. This makes it easier to research keywords without the need to switch back and forth from one program to another.
Know Your Limitations
I would be a fool to think I could get five articles written while the partner is in the home. Instead, I save the intensive writing moments for when he is at work, running errands, or sleeping! Otherwise, I choose to work on less rigorous activities.
Choose the Best Time
There are certain times of the day when my brain is more active (and prone to efficiency) than other times. I cannot start typing away until I am awake. I am a “I need my coffee” kind of girl and at least 30 minutes to become alert.
Strangely, I can work until the wee hours of the morning with more brainpower than any other time of the day. Naturally, this is a time when the partner is sleeping. I cannot fathom the switch that takes place, but I refuse to overlook the creative moments, regardless of when they happen!
Block Out Distractions
I have said it many times – I cannot work when radio is blasting or television noises are creeping up the staircase. I need pure silence! I will shut down the browser windows, except for what I need to conduct my keyword research.
I cannot sit here and type while the Facebook “ding” is taking place in the background or my telephone rings. Anything I can do to block the room from outside noises is beneficial in keeping my focus where it needs to stay – on the work in front of me!
While I’m 100% certain my strategies won’t work for everyone, you might want to try them on for size and see how well they work for you. Who knows, there could be a golden nugget in here that will help you work more efficiently, too!
