If you struggle writing consistently and sticking to a writing schedule, you can benefit from implementing the 20-mile march concept. The 20-mile march is a concept developed in the book Good to Great by Jim Collins. It states that, in periods of turbulence, companies need to stick to their target consistently regardless of the chaos and the uncertainty. Only by taking action every day, even when it’s inconvenient, will they reach their targets and achieve the desired outcomes. Instead of writing a lot on certain days, you should write a little bit every day — even if the world seems intent on keeping you from writing. Build a scoreboard. Set a goal. Reward yourself.
