Pen to Paper: Action (P21)

Presented below is a thought from me on writing, a quote from someone else on writing, an excerpt from that writer, and a discipline/habit to implement… 

We will be focusing on taking action today.

A Thought

“The act of putting pen to paper is the sole method through which our thoughts can manifest into reality.”

– Austin Alford

A Quote

“There is no proof of creativity without action.”

– Erwin Raphael McManus (Author of The Artisan Soul: Crafting Your Life into a Work of Art)

An Excerpt

An excerpt from The Artisan Soul: Crafting Your Life into a Work of Art by Erwin McManus

“My present dentist, who sings to the music playing over the intercom while performing oral surgery, is as careful to minimize your pain as he is to maximize the aesthetic quality of his work. On my last visit, he informed me that he also designs bow ties. Suddenly it all made sense. My dentist is an artist; for him, dentistry is simply the context for him to express his artisan soul.”

A Discipline/Habit to Implement

One effective practice to consider and incorporate into your routine is to establish a daily 5-minute writing session at the same time and in the same location.

By dedicating just a few minutes each day to this activity, you will witness the fulfillment of the projects you have always aspired to complete.

Here is a simple formula to follow:

“I commit to writing for 5 minutes every day at [TIME] in [PLACE].”

Let’s take ACTION!
