The key to Seth Godin‘s success is a little known Mac-only word processor called Nisus (pronounced Nice us). If you use that software, you will write like Seth Godin.
Using Nisus will enable you to write a blog post every day. Using Nisus will empower you to express yourself for pennies to the entire world when you publish your thoughts to a blog.
Of course, Nisus isn’t the secret. Nisus is a tool. Replace the word Nisus with Scrivener, Evernote, Google Docs, a Notebook, ByWord, TextEdit, Word, or Pages. It doesn’t matter which program you use, it matters that you’re using a tool consistently.
The reason Nisus works for Seth is it has become part of his routine. That’s what you need. You need to pick a program and use it, every day.
The process advice that makes sense to me is to write. Constantly. At length. Often. Don’t publish everything you write, but the more you write, the more you have to choose from.
The Best Tool For You
On Tuesday (August 30th) I’m hosting a class at 10 am and 9 pm CT to teach you about the seven different writing programs you can use to write more consistently. Some will help you more than others, so I hope you’ll come learn about them.
If you can’t make it live, register anyway, and I’ll send you a replay.
Seth’s secret isn’t Nisus; it’s consistently using Nisus. Some programs are better than others, though, and I’ll teach you which ones I think you should use during the class.
“Too Much” Isn’t The Problem
You don’t write too many words.
You don’t publish too often.
Your problem is being brave, consistent, and disciplined.
I know the feeling.
