Last week, I set this extreme goal of writing nine poems a day. It didn’t happen. I simply didn’t think it was possible.
Then yesterday I participated in two 15-minute sprints. I drafted eight poems in total.
Keep in mind these are drafts. They are not the finished poem. Revising will happen on another day.
So, if you feel it just isn’t possible to achieve that personal best, take a coaching tip from me. Dash to your computer and set a timer for 15 minutes. Write. Then repeat. See how far you get. Then, keep practicing. Maybe you’ll get even further tomorrow.
