90-Day Accelerator Productivity Time-Management Writing Prompts

3 Steps to Finish Your Writing Project Before Your Vacation (Stress-Free)

Today, I’m going to show you how to get your writing done before the summer holidays.

Most writers get massively stressed in July.

They think they must complete everything on their to-do list before they can truly relax.

But this often leads to overwhelm.

Even worse, you’ll bring your work on holiday, or you feel guilty for leaving your articles or book unfinished (instead of enjoying the sun).

Sound familiar?

Here are 3 proven steps that help you finish your writing.

Simply take pen and paper and fill in these prompts. It takes 3-5 minutes.

Step #1: Focus on 1 thing

If I could work on only 1 goal before my vacation, it’s __________.

I will write/edit ________ words.

Step #2: Set manageable goals

The last day before I start packing is __________(date).

Between now and that date are _____(number) days.

On those days, I can work _______ hours on my writing.

If your goal is too big, or you have less time than you thought to write, reduce it.

Step # 3: Let go with a ritual

On your last day of writing, debrief with this ritual. Here are the prompts to fill in:

I have completed _______ and will let this project rest.

I’ll work on my project again on _______ (date).

I will start with these 3 tiny tasks: _________, ________, ______.

Put this plan somewhere you will find it when you return.

Now, you can enjoy your time off and trust you’ll find a easy way back in.
