Like most people, I guess, when the new year gets here I look back and see if I managed to do anything worthwhile over the past 52 weeks. Many years, I’m disappointed. Not this year.
In 2015, I managed to release two new books, Zombies Versus Comicon and Taxi Adventure, as well as to republish an expanded version of Second Wind. Sure, I wanted more, but I have to recognize that those were good steps.
Also, I finally got a handle on my productivity, with the production of new words scheduled for every morning and business tasks every afternoon. Ironically, after I figured out the psychology and the system, I saw an article on Huffington Post where a Google employee recommended the same solution for the same reasons I had found, calling the two different approaches “maker” time and “manager” time. Cool.
Even better, this year I finally figured out how to do productive outreach. My mailing list now grows more and more every day with people interested in the kinds of thing I write, just waiting for new releases and promotions. How cool is that? ‘Bout time!
Having an established system is very important to my plans. Now that I know I can make the results a success, I’m about to shift my productivity into high gear. What’s more, I’m finally near to revealing my super-secret projects to the world. 2016 is going to be great.
More on that tomorrow. Be safe out there.
