Write It Down, Make It Happen


“What is the "it" in "write it down"? When you don't have an answer to that question, when you don't know what your goals are, you can use your writing to point you in the right direction. If you don't know what you want, start writing. Writing makes its own meaning.”


The book offers a practical guide to help you accomplish your goals through the act of writing. The premise is that by writing down your goals, you gain focus, clarity and self-confidence in your vision.


KEY TAKEAWAYS:

1. It is not enough to paint a vision and create some goals. The more specific you can be, the more likely your brain goes into its "make it happen" mode.

2. Oftentimes, we are held back by our unconscious fears and doubts. Writing, especially when it is done as a stream of consciousness and done daily, can help you discover these fears and limiting beliefs.

3. In order to stay motivated in pursuing your goals in the long-run, you often need something bigger than you, something that serves a bigger purpose.
