On any one day I can have anywhere from 7-10 content ideas in different stages that I can choose to work on.
Now usually, I'm a fan of focusing on just one thing. But not when it comes to content ideas. I find if I lock myself into working on just one thing my creative spirit rebels.
So I like to have options.
Rather than lock myself into a strict content calendar, or push myself to publish something that's not sparking for me**, I opt for flexibility**. And that flexibility has been a key part of staying consistent with publishing content these last few years.
It keeps me interested. Rather than get blocked on any one piece of content, I can jump around into whatever takes my fancy for that day.
I can focus on energy. Because I have different pieces of content in various stages I can choose something that matches my energy for that day.
It makes my ideas better. Because I'm not working on content & publishing it on the same day I can come back to things, work on them a few days in a row & that makes them 100% better.
I'm not stressed by I have to create something today. Rarely do I create something on the same day I publish it. So there isn't a stress with new ideas - I can take my time and that increases my creativity.
It feels easy. Because I'm working on ideas incrementally it never feels like a big lift to get something published (even long articles or courses) because I can simply.
Next time you're blocked on some content, try switching to working on multiple ideas at one time & see if that helps with your consistency.
