Let’s say, like me, you want to publish an article every day.
A noble feat, to be sure — one which will likely lead to many great breakthroughs and opportunities.
But where do you get started?
What do you write about?
And how do you find new things to write about when you’ve exhausted everything you already know?
Well, after writing nearly 300 articles since my last birthday, I’ve found some answers. And if you care to stick with me, I’d like to share one of my most crucial findings with you now.
Here it is:
The single most important activity you can be doing to publish an article every day IS NOT to write…
But rather to ‘fill your cup’ in preparation to write.
What do I mean by that?
Well, think of it this way:
When you begin writing, you start with a full cup. This cup contains everything you already know. It contains the ideas you want to share, the stories you want to tell, everything.
But with each article you write, you pour a little out of that cup.
Now, this isn’t a problem at first — there’s still a lot left over. But over time, as you continue pouring from that cup, the contents obviously diminish. Until, one day, you realize there’s little left over to actually do anything with.
What do you do when this happens?
Well, it’s simple…
You have to ‘fill the cup.’
And how do you ‘fill the cup’?
Easy: You read. You study. You consume. You implement. You practice. You try this. You try that. You experiment. You explore. You discover.
You do ANYTHING that helps you continue learning and getting better.
Doing this ensures you never write from a cup that’s empty.
And if your goal includes writing an article every day…
‘Filling your cup’ may very well be the most important thing you can do.
And when you’re ready
