Tips from Author Jodhan

For September 2015:

Lighting the lamp

For this month I'd like to share one of my very hidden strategies with you and I have named this the lighting the lamp strategy. You would probably find this terminology in the game of ice hockey but I have adapted it to suit my own purpose.

So what do I really mean by this? It is not too difficult to follow. It all has to do with me finding and focusing on a specific objective and working with that objective until I have achieved it. I can tell you from personal experience that there is nothing better than being able to experience a feeling of accomplishment and it does not matter how much time you spend in doing so.

The trick of the trade is for you to identify an objective, clearly define it in your mind and work at it until you have achieved it. This can certainly help you when you go to put pen to paper or fingers to keys on your keyboard.

So why not go out there and try out my lighting the lamp technique?

I'm Donna J. Jodhan, your freelance writer and roving reporter wishing you a terrific day.
