Tackle it Tuesday - outline my talk & writing ebook

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

This week, I only put 2 items on my "goals for the week" list:

1. outlining my talk

I am doing a talk on 8 August and while I've spoken on the topic "Empowering women" many times before, I need to condense some things, do a proper outline and decide exactly what I want to cover this time. I also customise to the specific group so that needs to be also taken into account.

2. writing one chapter of my new e-book

I have done only 1 out of 5 chapters and I need to get cracking. As with everything else, it is the starting. Once I sit still and write the first 15 - 20 mins, I'm hooked and I can write for hours.

When I get a bit stuck, I tell myself, "what would I do if I were coaching myself?"

So today, I am going to (1) reward myself with reading blogs for 10 minutes AFTER I have written at least 30 minutes, and I will keep doing that until the chapter is done. Then (2) I am blogging it for accountability.

Those two things usually work for me!

Go visit 5 minutes for mom for more great tackles. And while you’re surfing, say hi to a blogger today!

Accountability does it for me with Tackle-it-Tuesday! If I post I'm going to do something...I will work my tail off to get it done & post the results!

Good luck today with your tackles!

Insentive is good, but the real reward will be the actual accomplishment!! That is a pretty big tackle!
