I started writing about fitness about four years ago.
Since then, I’ve…
• Been a freelance writer.
• Created a successful newsletter.
• Wrote a book.
• Reached hundreds of thousands on Instagram.
If I had to do it all over again, here are 5 things I’d do differently.
Thing #1: Don’t procrastinate.
At the time, I thought procrastination was a good idea.
It led to a loss of money, a loss of clients, and less experience.
Instead, I would be on time with projects and written pieces.
Thing #2: Do it instead of talking about it.
I really thought talking about my work was going to get me to do it.
Instead, I would procrastinate. Because I learned much later that procrastination…
• Doesn’t get the job done
• Waste my time
• Losses me money
Thing #3: Write often.
One of my biggest mistakes was delaying actually writing.
I shouldn’t have.
If I had to do it all over again, I’d write more often. Because writing is what unlocks:
• More freelance clients
• More money
• Expands upon your knowledge
Thing #4: Don’t smoke weed.
At the time, people told me to smoke weed.
Boy, were they wrong.
Not only was smoking weed a huge waste of time, but it ended up causing me to be lazy, eat a lot, and waste money.
I probably would have made more money if I had just avoided weed.
Thing #5: Always remember to research.
It has taken me many years to realize research matters.
Don’t pay attention to random opinions.
Don’t feel the need to listen to bs online.
Just focus on peer review research and the rest takes care of itself.
TL;DR: 5 things I’d do differently to be a prolific fitness writer, faster.
• Don’t procrastinate.
• Do it instead of talking about it.
• Write often.
• Don’t smoke weed.
• Always remember to research.
