Have you ever paid attention to the timeline it takes you to write an article?
Check out the timeline in this article and see how quickly it can be done when you decide to take action.
On the EzineArticles.com blog there was an important question about what holds people back from writing both their second article and their first ten articles. I wanted to post my thoughts so I read through the posts that were there so far.
I started to write about the themes I saw emerging from the posts, then stopped and wrote an article about it.
Here is the time line, all PM EST on a Thursday night -
10:25 - Read thru the comments to the post
10:30 - Started to post my comment then decided to write an article about it.
10:34 - Started the article, titled “Article Writing: What to Do with 4 Barriers to Your First 10 Articles So You Can Write More Articles" - Check it out at http://ezinearticles.com/?&id=473318
10:49 - Finished the article, including title, keywords, summary, resource box, and spell check.
10:50 - Submitted the article
10:55 - Finished the rest of the post on the blog.
The four factors that hold people back that I identified from the blog posts are
4. Sour Grapes
The other factor I believe holds people back from their second article and thus their first ten is something I call Arrival Syndrome. It’s human nature - once we accomplish a goal we believe we have arrived and then stop doing the things that got us to the goal in the first place.
The winning thing to do is not only keep doing the things that got you there, but do more of them. In this case, write more and more and more articles.
