Have you given up on getting your book finished? Don’t give up; there’s still time. Here’s a tip that will jumpstart your writing and help you finish.

Make a commitment that this is the year; now is the time to get your book written. You might ask, “What’s the big deal about making a commitment to write a book?” It’s kind of like boyfriend and girlfriend relationships. The girl is usually all about getting and hearing a commitment from the guy. Unless the guy makes a commitment and deems her (his girlfriend,) she doesn’t really know if he’s serious or not.

In a similar way, unless you make a commitment to write your book, the universe doesn’t know if you are serious about getting your book done. In the words of Gerald R. Ford, “Begin to act boldly; the moment one definitely commits oneself heaven moves on their behalf.”

Back to that tip, there are 3 simple steps that will seal your commitment to write a book.

1. Move your commitment up to your 3 top priorities. Let’s get real unless you’re willing to do this, you probably won’t get it done. Use the cumulative effect. I’ve used it over the years. It has worked for me. I believe it will work for you. Using the cumulative effect, you do a little bit each day or each session. Whether it’s an hour, 30 minutes or even 20 minutes, start to do it daily.

2. Secondly, write your commitment down and sign it. When you write your commitment down you put your psyche on notice, you put your life on notice, your world, even the universe. When you put the world on notice, you are letting everyone know you are serious about getting your book written and into the hands of your readers.

3. Thirdly, tell someone. I know; that can be difficult. Perhaps you are like your book coach, reluctant to tell someone because you’ve done it all before. You told someone but didn’t accomplish your goal. It was embarrassing. Same here, but I did it again. Then I accomplished it. I finished. So, I encourage you, do it again. Tell someone. Besides all of that, it’s a great accountability factor. If you tell someone, some where along the way they are going to ask you, “By the way, how’s that book project coming along.”

It serves automatically in bringing your attention right back to your goal. It even moves you forward to completion. So let’s recap those 3 simple steps that will seal your commitment to write a book this year. First move your book writing up into the 3 top priorities of your life. Secondly, write your commitment down and sign it. Put the world on notice that you’re serious about writing your book. Thirdly, tell someone.

Don’t shuffle around any longer. Make your commitment and seal it with the three tips above. You are sure to have your important message written in a book by this time next year. Get organized, get a plan, write it down and get started. Best wishes for your success. I’m looking forward to seeing your name in print soon!
