This is part of the continuously growing your Designer’s Edge Ink Blueprint Lite ~ Author Blueprint Toolkit. This will be various actionable things to build, reinforce and any buzz word that you can think of that helps you create your blueprint that suits your career. There are many parts I think of when I think of the Author Blueprint Toolkit. Below is one of them.
Essential Tools Blueprint are tools I consider essential to your book business. These in my opinion are one of the most important parts of what all of this is about. When people think of tools they think of things they can buy to help their book business or so on. But those are only the secondary to these essential items. I’ll post what the essential tool is and then give you an action item for that tool.
Whenever you see “Blueprint Lite ~ Action Item” that means this is something for you to do.
Essential Tools Blueprint ~ You
Here’s a Designer’s Edge Ink Blueprint Lite ~ Essential Tools Blueprint.
An Essential Tool is…
Family (By Blood and Choice)
This is another essential tool that drives it all. Family that supports you in this business is great. This can be family by blood or choice. They can be sounding board, keep you grounded, feed you (when you get so busy you forget to eat) and so many other things.
For example I have a friend who links me asking if I ate today. They do it because I get caught up and tend to forget too. Or another my sister sends me text or calls and always asks have I written today. Or when she is here she and her hubby knows I need time so they push me into my office and tell me to write. They feed me and check on me.
Family (by blood and choice) is an essential tool. They are there for you and support.
And as usual I’ll say this essential tool is precious and should be protected.
Blueprint Lite ~ Action Item:
Now for an action!
From the time you read this and for a month take into mind what I stated and write each day about this essential tool. Pour out about how the essential tool is part of your book business.
Then here is the challenge part of this. Share this with someone. Or post on your social media let your readers into your truth.
You can also come and post it here on this blog post or contact me here. Then at the end of your month timeframe do something that celebrates your essential tool.
I look forward to seeing about your Essential Tools Blueprint – Family (By Blood and Choice).
And I’ll say as I usually do.
Don’t get overwhelmed start with one thing and work your way from there. As I have said before this is A Marathon and Not A Sprint. This pertains to everything no matter if its writing or all the things you do for your author business as well as in life. Things take time to do and build. Do one thing at a time then go from there.
Now go out there and kick butt getting stuff done.
