I want to help you get more writing done in 12 weeks than most people get done in 12 months. I want you to try the 12-Week Year.
I tried The 12-Week-Year for the first time last year and ever since then I’ve been hooked on the idea of ditching “annualized thinking” and focusing on setting 12-week goals instead of 12-month, or annual, goals. Even though many of the concepts discussed in the book were things I already practiced, the mindset shift was key. So, when I found out there was a 12-Week Year for Writers I was elated and excited to implement this system with the members of the See Jane Write Collective.
Through the years I’ve chosen words such as “magic” and “faith.”
I usually spend the first half of December choosing my focus word for the upcoming year. December is such a peculiar month for us all as we find ourselves simultaneously looking back and longing to move forward. For me, choosing a word of the year is a part of this.
If you want to learn how to write affirmations that actually work and that can help you achieve your goals and make your wildest dreams come true, I can be your guide. But this wasn’t always the case.
Back in the day, I thought affirmations were a waste of time. I had been making positive declarations first thing in the morning or just before bed, but each time I did I felt like a fraud. I didn’t believe a word that was coming out of my mouth.
I recently joined a mastermind being led by my friend and fellow writer Carrie Rollwagen. And in this mastermind, we’ll all be working together through The 12-Week Year by Brian P Moran and Michael Lennington. The premise is simple: get more done in 12 weeks than others do in 12 months. It’s all about setting and slaying goals, so when Carrie emailed me about it, of course, I was like, “Sign me up!”
