#MotownWriters: The Art of Juggling by #MichLit Author @SylviaJordan

There is a lot of talk these days about work-life balance, and no wonder.  Cultural and technological shifts – not to mention economic need – has us running around like proverbial hamsters on the wheel. 

Humanity seems more stressed than ever before, and the marketplace has responded with a plethora of books, lectures and modalities on how we can balance our obligations with fun in order to maintain our mental, physical and spiritual well-being.

Dr. Sylvia Jordan’s The Art of Juggling: The Successful Women’s Guide to Balancing Life is a refreshing, no-holds-barred take on life balance.  She does not rely on the popular lingo of the day, but uses plain language – and a healthy dose of tough love – to demonstrate how we can lead very full but efficient, purposeful and joyous lives.

What sets Jordan apart from other experts is her willingness to tell the unvarnished the truth – juggling takes mental discipline, not only when our pins are in the air, but when we are choosing those pins. It begins with an honest assessment of our lives as they currently are.

Do we lack the time to go back to school, volunteer at a charity or fulfill some other goal we have? While this many seem to be the case, an examination of our routine will likely reveal that a portion of each day is spent on burdens that are not ours to carry.

Chock full of practical advice and a-ha! moments, The Art of Juggling encourages us to get clear on what matters most. Becoming an expert juggler is not about that “superwoman” label often bandied about, but about understanding that we have the capability and the right to achieve and maintain everything life has to offer.

 

 

What I found most compelling with Jordan’s telling of her own mother’s story. What greater juggling act can there be than raising nine children?

Her book is a must-read!  Get the book on Amazon or at www.SylviaJordan.com

EyeSpecs- Post #6

Are you an author, writer, blogger, book promoter, book marketer, book coach, or publisher? Drop in weekly on the Motown Writers Network site where Eyeology INC will post snippets, tips, videos, quotes, and Q/A’s to bring value to whatever it is that you do.

Today’s #Q&A

strategyA. Everything. Strategy plays a major part in everything that we do from writing a book, business, branding, and just plain ole’ life. When we decide to create goals or take on a major book project, the first stage should be one of strategic planning (strategy). Your strategy should include what you want to do, who you’re trying to reach (who will benefit), what you want your outcome to be, and what you’ll do to accomplish it. Being able to strategize helps you to create the most effective ways and opportune times to manifest your book project. Strategizing will help you to stay the course and yield the best results possible. Strategy is not only the planning of goals and projects but the maintenance of them as well. If we do not strategize on what we’ll do to maintain our book projects, we’ll end up putting out ingredients of the pie into the universe rather than the whole pie itself. Wouldn’t it be best to put out the masterpiece once its done rather than just the pieces? Strategic planning includes timing. Timing is important to bring a project or goal to its full completion and is the glue that binds it all together so that you serve no wine before its time. How important is strategy? Strategy is integral to the success of any goal or project. When we have the pieces but do not know where they go, how to put them together, or even when to put them together; a Book Coach, Brand, or Business Strategist can help you effectively accomplish this.

[@IndiesUnlimited] Handwriting Your Book #amwriting

New post on Indies Unlimited

Handwriting Your Book

by Melissa Bowersock

handwriting a book letter-761653_640I’m guessing that most of us are always on the outlook for ways to increase our productivity, to open wider to inspiration, and get/keep the ideas flowing. But writing, like any art, is a process that defies capture, that eludes attempts to analyze, to reduce, to constrain. What works for one person won’t work for the next. All we can do is keep trying new things, or simply keep doing what has worked for us in the past. On a whim, I wrote my latest book in longhand.

Yes, I heard the gasps, the sudden intake of shocked breaths. Longhand?? Like on lined paper? With a pen? Yes, exactly. Read more of this post

My thoughts on this post: 

I actually committed myself to writing out a book using a Boogie Board with the Sync blue tooth that actually records my writing and sends it to Evernote to keep.

I could actually write two books at one time I learned.

One I could type and the other I could hand write and I got so much done.

I carry my boogie board with me at all times for notes and thoughts and ideas and I tell you, my productivity level is so on point and I don’t forget those stories that pop into my head that I want to write more about later.

Typing yes is good, but hand writing does something to the creativity level of my brain that typing couldn’t.

I loved this article.
