Improve Your Productivity - Step 1: Adopt a Positive Attitude

Productivity is the name of the game when it comes to blogging. Getting more done in less time is essential if you are going to maintain a high-quality blog.

After reading How to Be a Consistent Blogger, you understand that the way to keep your readers coming back for more is to post high-quality content on a regular basis. But sometimes Life just seems to get in the way.

In the excitement of starting your blog, you somehow managed to find the time to write interesting, captivating posts. But when readers didn’t overwhelm your site with traffic, you may have gotten discouraged.

You may even have started to regard your blog as just another chore that you had to take care of each day or each week. As your attitude declined, your posts stopped stimulating your readers to return on a regular basis.

Attitude Is Everything

Yes, we’ve all heard this saying since we were very young. In fact, we’ve heard it so often that it lost its meaning. Now, though, is the time for you to re-examine your attitude.

You probably already realize that you do a better job when you’re excited about a project. The same is true of writing blog posts. Not only will you do a better job when you’re excited about your topic, but you will inspire your readers about your topic as well. And inspired, excited readers will come back to your blog for more.

Be Realistic

You might be thinking that it’s easy to preach that a person should have a positive attitude, but that it’s much more difficult to develop or maintain an optimistic outlook when Life gets in the way.

Yes, it can be difficult, but in the end, it comes down to making a conscious choice to be positive. Make cultivating positivity your priority. Sometimes you have to ‘fake it’ until you ‘make it.’

How can you force yourself to be positive?
  • ‘Positivize’ Your Environment: Yes, that’s not a real word, but you get the idea, don’t you? Your environment has a huge effect on your attitude and how successful you are in your endeavors. So take some time to decorate your writing area with pleasant colors and personal items that remind you of happy times: a sanctuary where you can produce your best work.
  • Gratitude Journal: Don’t think of this as a huge project. Start out by committing to write down one positive thing each day. As the days progress, you might find yourself noticing more than one positive item. Go ahead and write as many as you like. This indicates that your focus is becoming more and more optimistic.
  • Read Uplifting Material and Watch Uplifting Programs: Find blogs and books that inspire you to look at the world in a positive way. It goes without saying that this means cutting down on news reports and violent programs. If your family can’t stop watching a program that gives you nightmares, take a walk while they watch it.
  • Be Intentionally Kind in Small Ways: Research recognizes that being kind benefits a person’s own health and happiness. Again, this is not a huge project.
    • Leave a sweet note to be found by a friend or family member.
    • Smile at strangers when you pass on the street.
    • Smile and give the right of way to another driver.
    • Find ways to compliment others whenever you can.
    • Come up with your own ideas to be intentionally kind.
You may find that it takes a long time to develop a consistently positive attitude, but if you stick to it, you’re likely to find that Life becomes happier and healthier overall for you at the same time that you’re inspiring your readers with high-quality blog posts. Win-win.
