Am I jumping the gun a little bit? 2016 is still right here, after all. Staring me in the face.
Let’s just call it getting a head start. On Monday, I launched a new series for the blog and the podcast … which I’m calling the 2017 Content Excellence Challenge.
It works like this: Every month, we get two prompts. One is creative (about becoming a better writer) and one is productive (about getting more work done).
We’ll take these prompts and turn them into habits … habits that support better and stronger content.
The Copyblogger FM podcast this week is about the Challenge as well, so you can pick text or audio. (Or both, if you’re into it.)
It’s about, to use Cal Newport’s phrase, getting so good they can’t ignore you. It’s about embracing change and growth and mastery, and being willing to put in the necessary work.
Careful, because I may burst into an inspirational song at some point here.
