3 Simple Steps For Writing Every Day

Lately, I have been reading a lot about Writing. Considering my poor writing skills, I have been looking for resources and advices from experts on improving writing. After reading several articles, I have come to a conclusion that every single advice boils down to this: “If you want to be a good writer, you need to write every day.”

If I tell you that, I know many will say, “I have already heard about that,” or “I don’t have enough time,” or “I write everyday but I haven’t seen any changes,” and so on and so forth.

I know for a fact that you have heard it hundreds of times and it sounds cliché, but it’s a universal fact – if you want to improve writing, you need to write every day. 

Let me explain.

If you are like me, you think a lot about writing a new post for your blog. You want to write more often. You want to constantly update your blog on regular basis. You want to share and gain more readers.

But you don’t write a new post. You don’t write as often as you like. You don’t update your blog on regular basis. And you don’t gain more readers as a result.

WHY? Because you are only making plans; you are not executing it. You aren’t taking any action. You are waiting for a right time to write. And that time never comes.

If you really want to commit to writing, there are 3 simple steps you need to follow.

1. Stop Planning.
2. Start Writing.
3. Repeat.

The first step is Stop Planning. Many people start to plan before they even start writing. It is not entirely a bad thing but many focuses more on planning rather than writing. They plan on writing several articles and make several lists, but only to write none. Your mind is overwhelmed by your massive lists. Your mind can only handle what it is capable of. So what I would advise you is that you need to stop planning – not entirely, but have very few lists (max: 3).

Second step is Start Writing. Now that you have planned on writing at least 3 articles, you need to choose the best one to write first. After choosing the best one the process is simple: you need to write until you finish writing. And then you can decide on writing the other two.

If you have understood the above two steps then step three will be very easy for you. Step three is Repeat, which means you need to repeat step 1 and 2 for every new article you choose to write.

So the cycle is quite simple: Stop Planning >> Start Writing >> Repeat

I hope this little advice of mine will help you start writing every day. I would also love to hear your suggestions and feedbacks, so please leave it under the comment section below. And if you like this article, please feel free to share.

Waste Problems in Bhutan

“We must be the change we wish to see in the world.” ― Mahatma Gandhi.
In Bhutan, it is not uncommon to see ugly sight of garbage dumped on the roadside, solid waste thrown away at river banks, and landfills amassed with huge amount of rubbish. It is becoming more and more difficult for municipalities to manage solid waste in an efficient manner as urbanization and population has both increased.

Thirty years ago, it was not a big issue as Bhutan had no more than 600,000 people and more than half of the population lived in rural areas. Bhutanese imported few goods from the neighboring countries, mainly India. They produced almost everything in their own country, such as: milk, cheese, butter, rice, meat, wool, cotton, etc. But in recent years, Bhutanese's consumption pattern has changed and people started to import a large number of goods, spending billions of Ngultrum. Because of this continuous trend, waste generation and disposal has become a major issue in Bhutan.

Can We Live Longer Than We Think?

Throughout history, mankind has been in a quest for elixir, a magical potion that would prolong life indefinitely, for thousands of years. Be it in a story of a brave hero's journey in a strange world of magic and powers to save his beloved, or today's world where scientists are working day and night to break the human code and solve ageing, and get people live longer. 

According to scientific evidences, human originated from apelike ancestors and evolved over a period of approximately 6,000,000 years ago. But they didn't have basic human traits such as ability to walk on two legs, make and use tools around them, language, etc. It took another two million years to develop several of these traits. It was a mechanism to survive from wild animals and harsh environment. Many believe that advanced human traits, including complex symbolic expression, elaborate cultural diversity, and art, emerged mainly during the past 100,000 years. Throughout the evolution, all humans have been…

Busy Life!

We miss out on so many small things around us when we are busy with our LIFE. I just realized this when I looked out from my balcony this morning. 

I woke up at 6 and made my coffee and sat on a small wooden chair at the balcony. I was just taking a deep breath and enjoying the morning view with sip of hot strong coffee. The morning view is always amazing from where I am sitting, but lately I have not been able to enjoy this moment because of my “new work schedule.” I am working late nights and waking up quite late in the mornings. I hardly get time to sit and take rest because I will always find something to do, even in free time. But today was different! It was Sunday and I woke up quite early. I had nothing to do, literally. I had done all my chores the other day – laundry, cleaning, dishes, garbage, etc. So I had Sunday free for myself. I can choose to do anything I wanted but I chose to stay at home. Home is also one of my favorite hangout places.
So I am at balcony, sipping coffee…
