The actual process of writing a book isn’t the same as creating one. Creating ideas for a book is the easy part, finding a way to get those ideas onto ‘paper’ in a cohesive, interesting and engaging format is a bit harder. The hardest part? Actually getting it done.
Tim Ferriss recommends writing “2 crappy pages a day” … the theory is that it gets you into a habit of writing every day, even if it is only 2 crappy pages. This works for me, but once you’ve made some headway, I find that to really forge ahead, you need to ...Read More →

I hadn’t had a proper holiday all year, but I can safely say my 2 weeks in Barbados just made up for that!
