24 Habits I Used to Write Half a Million Words in 2018 (Worksheet)

Click here to download these questions as a worksheet. Below, you can find links to resources to help you go deeper.

  1. What were you doing when you were six? Pick another age if you want. Ask your parents what they remember.

  2. What does success like look in your head? Who do you envision when you hear the word “successful” and then does that line up with your values in life? Why or why not?

  3. Where do you want to be in ten years? In twenty? When you’re at the end of your life, what are the things you want to have left behind you? What is the legacy you want to leave? Are your habits moving you towards those things now? Why or why not?

  4. If you could press the easy button on one thing in your life right now--what would it be?

  5. What has worked well for you in the last six months--one year--decade? What hasn’t?

  6. Track your actions for a day--the websites you visit, how long you spend on them, the amount of time you spend on each task before moving on--for a day or two. Are you spending your time you like thought?

  7. For you, does productive mean: a) focusing better so you can work deeper/faster/better or b) producing more of whatever you’re already producing? Or something else, like feeling better? Feeling more peaceful? Feeling less stressed?

  8. My recommendation is to start working with these--but keep it open ended. Let these things build over a few weeks, a month, a year. Keep a journal just for this process that you can look back on and track your growth.

I hope theses are wildly insightful for you!
