Paper Walls: Removing the Barriers Between You and Making Great Comics
Gerry Roberts, public speaker and author of books like The Millionaire Mindset and Publish a Book and Grow Rich, suggest that you attach new productive habits around your existing habits. For example, he says “write for five minutes before and after you brush your teeth. Do the same thing before and after you eat breakfast, lunch and dinner.” Find a couple other habits during the day, positive things, part of your regular schedule that you don’t think about, and do your creative work for five minutes before and after. Once you got that down and aren’t struggling to do it, stretch the time before and after your current positive habits to 10 minutes of work before and after. So now you’re writing or drawing for 10 minutes before and after you brush your teeth and before and after each meal.
