The main excuse Internet entrepreneurs and bloggers give for not writing an e-book is that they don’t have time. They are already too busy.
But they understand the value that an e-book can bring to your business.
An e-book helps you establish yourself as an expert in your industry, and once written, the e-books you sell online through your website can provide passive income for years to come.
How to find the moment for your eBook
Everyone has the same 24 hours every day. Well, you’ve heard it before. But it’s true. Everyone is presented with the same amount of time every day, yet few people find a way to use it in a good way.
Start by writing whenever you have 10-15 minutes of free time. Many successful authors of both electronic and physical books have done the same. Stop making excuses and start writing, and the work you do for those short periods of time will gradually add up to a full e-book that you can sell online.
Get rid of the thieves of time
Time stealers are simply things you do when you want to waste time. You could be browsing your social media accounts or watching junk shows on television.
This does not mean that you should never watch TV or delete all of your social media accounts. It just means that you should only do these things after you have finished writing a few paragraphs or even a chapter.
Improve time management
It goes without saying that just because you’re not wasting your time on nonsense doesn’t mean you’re going to write an e-book quickly. You will still have to learn how to manage your time effectively.
For example, if you are someone who works well under pressure, then you should allow less time for the more important tasks. Although this may sound counterproductive, it will actually help you develop the habit of completing anything in a very short period of time.
Find pockets of time
Stop looking for big blocks of time. Rather than trying to find an entire day to spend writing your e-book, find 15, 30, and 60-minute free time slots in your schedule. Write on the train to and from work, in a cafe at lunchtime, and on notepaper when an idea strikes. Write whenever you have a few minutes of free time.
Yes, it takes an effort to write an e-book. You have to research it, write it, edit it and format it. But if you use your time wisely, you can create something useful that you can sell over and over again.
