Since joining Natalie Sisson’s 30 day blog writing challenge I’ve gained a tremendous amount of clarity not only about my gifts, but my true passions and how I want to spend the next three years of my life.
Honestly, this is an exercise that I highly recommend everyone try whether you’re a entrepreneur or not.
So if you’re a dreamer, or more importantly if you’ve forgotten your dreams, writing about what you want to create in your life (and sharing it with the world) will be prove to be one of the most therapeutic experiences you’ll ever have.
Give it shot, you won’t regret it! Okay on to Day 7!
[Day 7] Tools and Resources: All you need to create your perfect lifestyle
Which key tools will you turn to regularly to maintain your mindset and how will you use them effectively?
Currently I use a variety of tools in my business, but now that I’ve decided to focus more on the publishing end of my business, in particular iBooks the first tool I will focus on is:
iBook Author – Creating beautiful interactive books with Apple iBook author, I already own the software so I’m ready to start developing my next book project with this amazing tool.
The next tool that I will use to help my run my business more effective is:
Evernote – Another great program for collecting resource materials for future publishing projects and it’s so convenient. I love having a central place to house everything and Evernote is perfect for this.
And finally the last and most important tool in my tool kit:
Rescue Time – It’s a little hard to admit publicly how much time I waste on my computer on tasks that only serve to distract me from direct income producing activities, including getting out the house to actually meet real live people. Rescue Time to the rescue! Sorry for the pun but I couldn’t resist. I’m very excited about this one.
My last and final tool requires no computer and no internet connection. All that’s required is my two legs.
So my final tool is to take a daily walk. I live right by the beach and I hardly ever get out to walk because I’m always on the computer. Today that changes.
