“…Make writing a non-negotiable part of your routine.” – Mike Fallat

Hey there, fellow go-getters and hustlers! In the fast-paced world of entrepreneurship, time is our most precious resource. We juggle a million things a day, from client meetings to product development to marketing strategies – it’s no wonder finding the time to write can be a challenge. But hey, fear not! I’m here to share some invaluable tips on setting realistic writing goals for busy entrepreneurs.

  1. Prioritize Your Writing Goals

The first step in achieving any goal is to prioritize it. Just like you prioritize your business tasks, prioritize your writing. If you value writing, you’ll find time for it. Whether it’s a blog, a book, or even just a journal, make writing a non-negotiable part of your routine. Set aside specific time slots each day or week dedicated solely to writing.

  1. Start with Achievable Milestones

When setting writing goals, it’s essential to start small and work your way up. Instead of aiming to write a 300-page novel in a month, start with the goal of writing 500 words a day. By breaking your writing goal into achievable milestones, you’ll experience regular wins, which can be incredibly motivating.

  1. Set a Realistic Schedule

Busy entrepreneurs know the importance of a well-structured schedule. Apply this same principle to your writing goals. Find a time that works best for you – whether it’s early in the morning, during your lunch break, or in the evening. Stick to this schedule and make it a habit. Consistency is the key to success in any endeavor.

  1. Embrace the Power of Deadlines

Deadlines are not your enemy – they’re your friend. Use them to your advantage. Set specific deadlines for each writing milestone you aim to achieve. Knowing you have a date to meet can boost your productivity and commitment to your writing goals.

  1. Eliminate Distractions

Entrepreneurs often have to navigate through a sea of distractions. To make the most of your writing time, create a distraction-free environment. Turn off notifications, find a quiet space, and focus solely on your writing. The more concentrated your efforts, the quicker you’ll reach your goals.

  1. Use Writing Tools and Techniques

In today’s digital age, we have countless writing tools and techniques at our disposal. Use them! Whether it’s a voice-to-text app, a content planner, or an editing tool, find what works for you and maximize your efficiency.

  1. Celebrate Your Successes

As you hit your writing milestones, don’t forget to celebrate your successes. Small or big, each achievement deserves recognition. It will keep you motivated and committed to your writing goals.


In the world of entrepreneurship, time is our most valuable asset. But that doesn’t mean we can’t achieve our writing goals. With the right mindset, prioritization, and planning, even the busiest entrepreneurs can become successful writers. Remember, setting realistic writing goals is the first step on the path to becoming a prolific and accomplished writer. So, go ahead, make it a part of your daily routine, and start reaping the benefits of your words on paper!
