Why Over-Complicating Goals Won't Actually Let You Achieve Them

Over the past week, I’ve been creating daily blog posts and sending them out to my email list along with posting them on social. Why, you ask?

Seth Godin inspired me. He wrote in his 7,000th blog post last week that the secret to writing a daily blog is to write every day. And to queue it up and blog it. There is no other secret.

So that’s what I did. By writing everyday, it’s forming a habit. My goal is to write everyday for 30 days, no matter how much or how little and share on email and social.

I think that when we have these big goals in mind, we MAKE them bigger by over-complicating them. I’m guilty as charged. I was making my writing a much bigger task by thinking about the marketing of it too much (of course I naturally would!). But after I started simplifying the process, it became much more manageable and realistic.

Here are three tips that have been extremely helpful to get me to write everyday:

  • Turn off my computer WiFi to block out distractions
  • Write first thing in the morning
  • Write first, create the imagery second

What are some goals that you tend to over-complicate? Would love to hear about them!
