  1. If you can just do one tiny iota of your craft a day, that is often enough. As long as you’re making something, then some of it will be good.
  2. Get outside, get active and read some fiction. A reader lives a thousand lives before they die. The person who never reads, lives only one.
  3. Take two minutes in your morning to write down, “I will let go of, I am grateful for. And I will focus on.” The other 998 minutes of your day will be so much happier.
  4. What’s the smallest possible morsel of creative output you could flow on a regular basis? When you have a rhythm, you have an audience.
  5. Don’t be afraid to tell people what you’re doing.
  6. There are three S’s of success – sales, social, and self. It’s up to you which success you want.
  7. The goal is not to be perfect. It’s just to be better than before.
