This first blogging hack was kinda life-changing for me. I know that is saying a lot, but I’m being real here. I think, as entrepreneurs, we tend to have ideas swimming in our heads ALL. THE. TIME. It can be overwhelming and distracting. It can make it challenging to be truly present with our kids.
So, we try to get our ideas out and written down somewhere. A notebook in the car, one near the shower and another near the bed. Sticky notes all over the desk. Even more notes on our phones, Evernote, Google Keep, the notes app, Mindly. It’s messy, and it makes finding the idea we need – for an article, social media post, podcast episode, product – so time-consuming.
The solution is to keep all your ideas organized in one place. You’ll save time by not always having to find somewhere to record your thoughts. You’ll record more ideas for the same reason. You’ll save time again when trying to figure what to write a blog post about or post to social media – which means you’ll likely do it more often. And the products you do post or the products you create will be higher quality because you’ll have a plethora of ideas to use.
You’ll also feel less stressed – less “all over the place” and be able to focus more on your family. You’ll be more present during family time. Instead of having those ideas taking up all your mental space, you can quickly record them for later and get right back to enjoying your family. This is the #1 blogger hack I recommend.
