Hack your Bucket List – How to Write and Publish a Book (Part 1)

I’ve always loved writing. For me, words were the perfect medium to express my thoughts. However never in my wildest dreams did I think that I would be publishing a book, with readers around the world, before the age of 25. That was until July 2014.

On a sunny day like any other – as I’m sure so many stories begin – one meeting would change the course of my being. Let me preface this, writing a book is a lot of work, like a lot – like way, way, more work than I thought. But it has been one of the most rewarding and gratifying experiences in my life. What I realized during the entire process was that some things could have been stream lined if there was a sort of guide out there – a manual to hack writing and publishing a book.

You are in the perfect position to start living your dreams

[Tweet “To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people only exist. “]

I always loved the saying, “today is the first day of the rest of your life.” It’s the anti-procrastination – kick in the butt – that I often need to get off the couch and go after the life I want to live, not just the one I have to live. I definitely wasn’t always this way, and to be completely honest I sometimes slip back in to the old “I’ll do it tomorrow” patterns. If there’s one piece of insight I can share, don’t leave it until tomorrow, or next year.

Bucket List Failure

Failure as Part of the Bucket List Experience

Are some of your bucket list goals pretty wild? Way outside your comfort zone, not to mention your budget, skills or abilities? And are you afraid you may try and fail at some of these goals?

Then you and I have something in common.

My bucket list is the To Do list of an adventurous, athletic, wealthy genius. I love who I see when I look at that list: Michelle on top of mountains, Michelle racing cars, Michelle learning languages and living like an expat, owning a radio station and fighting with nunchucks.
