  • Q&A Tuesday is coming at you, Don't you want it? Don't you want it? Yeah!

  • Q: Hey, it's Marie Forleo and you are watching MarieTV- business and life advice that works.

  • Today's question comes from Sidsel and Sidsel writes:

  • Hi Marie! I'm finding that it takes forever to write my newsletters. I know that I should

  • be sharing content and connecting with my audience but there's just so much else to

  • do. Any advice you can share on how to write faster?

  • A: Sidsel, awesome question! Sidsel, first let me say that everybody I know struggles

  • with this very issue, especially when you are first starting out. When I started my

  • business and I had to write a lot of content sometimes it would take me two to three days

  • to get out one good article so I totally know how you feel. And even to this day, I'm still

  • looking for ways to write faster. The truth is, creating high quality content does take

  • some time but the good news is I've got eight great strategies to help you create high quality

  • content even faster.

  • #1. Flip your script. If you want to change anything in your life, you first have to take

  • look at your internal script. What are you saying to yourself? What's the story you're

  • telling yourself about the thing you want to change. So, for example, if you are telling

  • yourself, “I'm a really slow writer and it takes me forever to write my newsletters,”

  • well guess what? You will be a really be a slow writer and it will take you forever to

  • write your newsletters. Your subconscious mind is a powerful little biatch and let me

  • tell you, you want her on your side. "B*tch you slow!" Baby, let's flip that script! "Mama,

  • you so fast!" Uhum... So before you do anything else, flip your internal script.

  • #2. Is begin with the end in mind. You want to think about your end result. What is the

  • thing that you want your reader to walk away with? What action, if any, do you want them

  • to take? Then you have to reverse-engineer your content to get them there. For example,

  • as I was creating the answer to this very question, I asked myself, “What do I want

  • you to walk away with after this video?” And my answer? A highly actionable list of

  • things that will help you write faster and a video that you'd want to share with your

  • friends.

  • #3. Keep a topic list. Now tell the truth, you waste a ton of time trying to figure out

  • what you should write about in the first place. Here's the fix: Keep a running topic list

  • of all your ideas. So, for example, if you get inspired by magazine articles or interviews

  • or anything you watched on TV, write it down. Or something really good that really works

  • for me is questions that people ask you all the time, great fodder for content. So you

  • can use a notebook or you can use Google Docs or you can use Evernote which is amazing.

  • Or you can even use your iPhone and get little Miss Siri to help you out. Siri, remind me

  • to write an article about Evernote.

  • Siri: Marie, you should be focused on making videos, not creating content.

  • #4. Make it short and sweet. Remember that high quality content does not mean long a**

  • content. Sometimes the best way to serve your audience is to make it short and sweet. Remember,

  • nobody's not gonna read your content because it is too short so try just sharing one tip

  • or one idea.

  • #5. Plan it out. Create an editorial calendar for your content. So you want to spend about

  • 1-2 hours planning out your content for the next three to six months. This takes the decision

  • out of what you are going to write about each week and it just plans everything out for

  • you so when it's time to write, you just go to your plan, you follow your plan and you're

  • done. And as you are writing your content, you don't have to wonder, “Should I include

  • this whole section here, or should I save it for another post?” You can just go to

  • your editorial calendar and you'll say, Oh! This idea's gonna be great for July 5th.

  • #6. And this is a biggy... Don't write and edit at the same thing. Get everything out

  • and don't edit as you go because it only slows you down. So, for example, if you are writing

  • and you think of better way to say something, don't delete what you just wrote. Just stop,

  • write the sentence the new way and keep going. This frees you up from making it perfect the

  • first time and allows you to just get everything out. Editing is usually much faster process

  • when you have a lot of content on a page.

  • #7. Remember Mr. P's Law. That would be Mr. Parkinson and he says, “The amount of time

  • one has to perform a task is the amount of time it will take to complete the task.”

  • Another way to say it is work expands the time allotted so give yourself a time limit.

  • Now Mr. Tony Robbins kicked my ass on this topic and I wrote a whole article about it

  • and you can check it out in the link below.

  • #8. Be the vessel and not the source. One of the most powerful things to remember is

  • that you're the vessel and not the source. You know Marianne Williamson said once that

  • she is the faucet and God's the water. And Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of Eat, Pray

  • and Love, she has this great saying. She thinks that each of us have our own genius that comes

  • to visit us and inspires our creations. Now I know this one may seem a little woo-woo,

  • but it really works. It takes the pressure off so you don't have to do everything by

  • yourself. You're responsible to show up, be the vessel for the great work to come through

  • you.

  • So there you go Cecil, eight great strategies to help you write faster. I hope it helps

  • you and please come back and let us know how it goes. Now if you've got strategies on how

  • to write faster or you want to let me know what strategy from this video resonated with

  • you the most, I want to hear it and tell me about it in the comments below. Like this
