The top excuse internet entrepreneurs and bloggers give for not writing an eBook is that they don’t have the time. They are already too busy.
But they understand the value that an eBook can bring to their business.
An eBook helps to establish you as an expert in your industry and once written, eBooks you sell online though your website can provide passive income for years to come.
How To Find The Time For Your eBook
Everybody has the same 24 hours in each day. OK, so you’ve heard that before. But, it’s true. Everyone is presented with the same amount of time every day, yet few people find a way to actually use it in a good way.
Begin by writing each time you have 10 or 15 minutes of free time. Many successful authors, of both eBooks and physical books, have done the same thing. Stop making excuses and start writing, and the work you do those little chunks of time will gradually add up to a completed eBook you can sell online.
Get Rid Of Time Thieves
Time thieves are simply things you do when you want to waste time. It might be scrolling through your social media accounts or it watching rubbish programs on TV.
This doesn’t mean that you should never watch TV or erase all your social media accounts. It simply means that you should only do these things after you have completed writing a few paragraphs or even a chapter.
Get Better At Time Management
Needless to say, just because you’re not wasting your time on nonsense doesn’t mean that you’ll write an eBook quickly. You’ll still need to learn how to effectively manage your time.
For instance, if you’re someone who works well under pressure, then you should leave less time for the most important tasks. Even though this sounds counterproductive, it will actually help develop a habit of completing anything in a very short time period.
Find Pockets Of Time
Stop looking for huge blocks of time. Instead of trying to find an entire day to spend writing your eBook, find 15, 30 and 60 minute pockets of free time in your schedule. Write on the train to and from work, in a cafe at lunchtime, and on notepaper when an idea comes into your mind. Write whenever you have a few minutes of free time.
Yes, it does takes effort to write an eBook. You have to research, write, edit and format it. But it your use your time wisely you can create something useful that you can sell over and over again.
