I’ve written hundreds of articles and posts over the last fifteen years.

I’ve written so much that I actually now cut my fingernails using pencil sharpeners.

I write many of my posts fast.

Here’s a cheeky framework you can use to write an impactful piece quickly:

1. Take three long, slow breaths through your nose, reflecting on how everything is OK this moment, and you love yourself a hella lot more than you think.

Now you’re easing into your default state as a self-compassionate Earthling connected to inner Universal Flow.

2. Hide your phone and turn off all distractions.

3. Get out a piece of paper or digital document and write a paragraph or two of whatever comes to mind.

It can be absolute trash.

This loosens you up and signals your brain that you are in non-critical mode.
