How my morning discipline is helping me write the book

Photo on 04-10-2015 at 13.31This book of mine…can be a real pain…but/and a real  joy at the same time.

I did not write/got round to it much in February. Instead I deliberately procrastinated making jewellery (and selling some) and preparing for the Art Open Show at the Telegraph Hill Festival at The White Hart at New Cross Gate (see my instagram feed)…and just relaxing. Don’t know about yourselves, but Feb is my least favourite month in the year. And I spend most of it sleeping, usually. Having said that…we have March now…and I have been marching on again. Dancing along.

I have noticed how much my morning discipline really helps set the tone to the day and the writing and how I spend the first ninety minutes or so determine pretty much how I get on for the rest of the day.

So when I get up, practice and dance…I am all set for the day. And I can get cracking writing. Much easier. I am awake, aware and conscious. Mentally and physically too. Ready to take on the day.

It took some fine tuning and discipline to build a daily discipline :-)…but I am getting there and seeing the results too. You probably know that it takes some three weeks to build a new habit. (After drinking water regularly, this is my second habit I have built this year).

So what you do, you remember/remind yourself daily to do it, stick with it and it slowly becomes a habit. A good one. A good one to have.

Do you have a daily morning discipline? Tell us! What works for you? How did you build it? How are you making sure you stick with it? Or any other powerful working/arting habits? Do share!

In the meantime, arting and writing hats on!

P.S. Update: The book is now available in the form of an e-course. And it is going at an early bird price until the April Fool’s Day…sooo….check it out.
