But first I want to tell you my goal for December:

To write 50 to 60 stories by the 30th of December.


Yes, I know it’s a large goal. But somehow, I feel it’s possible.

How I arrive at a huge goal.


It blew me away!

And you know what? He made that goal public at the beginning of the month in one of his articles and published it!

That was the height!

I was scared on his behalf.

“What if he does not meet the $100 mark?”

But you know what?…

He surpassed it! He made $148.09 on the 30th of November 2019!

Isn’t that amazing!

I was so glad when I read it in another post where he again set a bigger goal of $300 in December.

Well, I can’t set that kind of goal yet, I can’t be sure it will work out.

Especially because it’s not under my control.

So I went for something that’s much more under my control — to write a minimum of 50 articles on or before December 30.

And I promise myself not to publish what has no good user experience — all the story irrespective of length will be of value to those that read it.

This article came from setting that goal

“How can I come up with two ideas and develop them into a story every day?”

It’s more like saying “I will not lack something valuable to say for the next 30 days”.

I sat back and quiz myself on the possibility of making that goal a reality.

And that was it!

The light went on and I discovered it was possible.

This is how to have what to write for the next 30 days using my three-cord strategy:

1️⃣. Learn to bring goals out of the realm of impossibility

But I have learned how to bring things out of impossibility:

If you can sure take care of the daily portion, sure enough, you can do it for the next 30 days. Just take it one day at a time.

So I can be sure of writing 2 stories every day and repeat it for the next 30 days.

2️⃣ Keep a note of human questions/ problems

In this note, I write any question that people would naturally ask when faced with a problem.

From experience, one of the major reasons people search for stuff on Google or Medium is to know how to solve a certain problem.

Meaning every post solves a problem or an answer to a question.

So why not?

For the next 30 days, I have decided to write into my note 10 questions people likely asked when faced with a certain problem.

E.g. “How Can I write 7 mins Read Articles?”

“How Can I Learn to Think Outside the Box?”

And here is a secret: Turning some of these questions into statements will make good headlines.

3️⃣ Research on finding solutions to the problems

If I can’t find any, I will do some cool research online for credible methods to deliver the result.

For this 30 days challenge, it will be more of what I have tried and experience firsthand.

How I will do that?

I will keep a closer look on life_ every tiny event of my life will be of value this time.

I will not let them just pass as I have always done_ I will capture as many as I can and learn something from them.

Those are the three-cord strategies on never lacking what to write for the next 30 days.

In conclusion

1️⃣ bring things out of the realm of impossibility

2️⃣ start documenting human question; and

3️⃣ develop actionable solutions to those problems.

If you can do these, it becomes easy enough to write at least a story every day.

I hope this article has helped give you some ideas and a strategy to write a post every day for the next 30 days?
