Sample text

They say you learn a concept best when you teach it. You become an expert on a topic fastest when you write a book about it. So, don’t let the fact that you’re not an expert keep you from pulling in an accountability partner. Everyone has a niche to speak of, and you become an expert along the way. What else keeps us from bringing in an accountability partner? Fear that we’ll fail or just never complete our manuscript. If we keep it to ourselves or we keep accountability at a distance with conversations that start with, “I’m sort of writing a book, have been on and off for a few years,” then we’re holding ourselves back from committing, just in case it turns out we don’t have what it takes to finish what we started.

You’ll want to put off writing the book, but you’ll feel guilty. Suddenly, the project will take on a life of its own, like it’s forcing you to work on it. Then, you’ll start to foster some resentment, and procrastination will beckon even more. You won’t be able to shake the feeling of guilt. You’ll begin to self-sabotage your progress. You’ll stay up late watching TV, and then you’ll justify hitting the snooze button and skipping your morning writing session. You’ll have work deadlines closing in, so you’ll eat lunch at your desk, rather than escaping for a 25-minute writing session.

Here’s what’s posted on my laptop, where I do all of my writing: “I am writing this book to encourage and inspire writers to stop procrastinating and to give them the tools to write their book. This book will change some writer’s life; she’ll write the book she’s always wanted, and that book might just change the world. ” Notice how my why includes how I’ll help others and how I’ll help myself. That’s not selfish. Your book will benefit others’ lives, as well as your own life. That’s how the best and most worthwhile projects work—it’s a win-win, all the way around.
