Everything You Need to Know About How to Be Productive Everyday As An Author
Ever wonder how some authors seem to get everything, if not, almost everything done everyday and you wish that you can be just as productive as they are?
Well, my fellow authors. This is what The Efficient You is all about. It’s a dedicated website where you discover the secrets on how to be productive everyday as an author from someone who is an author as well.
The Key to Be Productive Every Single Day
Believe it or not, the reason why these authors are productive pretty much every single day isn’t because they possess superpower that we don’t have.
The key to their productivity boils down to ONE thing, which is the systems they have in place.
And guess what? When you have a system in place, not only that you can get things done in less time. But you’re less likely to procrastinate too.
Don’t worry if the thought of having a system in place feels like rocket science to you.
This is what I’m here for. You’ll get to see how I do things in my own author business and follow along.
It’s For Everybody
It doesn’t matter whether you’re a traditionally-published, hybrid, indie, full-time or part-time author.
Everybody can benefit from having a system in place.
If you’re not sure where to begin, you can replicate what I do first and make adjustments that suit your situation and lifestyle from there.
What I share with you here only serves as a guideline. Feel free to make changes that fit your situation.
After all, you’re the only one who knows what’s best for you.
How to Be Productive Everyday Resources Page
There’s no doubt that using the right tools can help you to be productive everyday.
But with so many tools available out there, it can be hard to know which ones are the best.
If you have no idea what tools you need to add to your arsenal, then take a look at this resources page.
This resources page covers every single thing that I use in my own author business, from what software I use to write my books to what I use to manage all of my projects.
Keep in mind that everything that I share on this page is based on my own personal experience. So, the experience may vary from one person to another.
Additional Resources Just For You
While everything that I share with you on this website is available for free, it can still feel hard to piece the information together when it feels like they’re all over the place sometimes.
If you prefer to get the information in a form of an organized, step-by-step guide, the good news is you can get anything that I published on this website as a PDF guide on my online store.
The PDF guide comes with exclusive content and bonuses such as worksheets and checklists too.
So, the PDF guide doesn’t just contain the information that is already available on the website. It also contains brand new content that you can’t get anywhere else.

What’s New From The Efficient You Blog
While I managed to get many of my author business processes nailed down, they’re still not set in stone. Heck, I doubt that it will as long as there will be more new tools for authors coming out and the old ways of doing things are no longer working anymore.
This is where the blog comes in. It’s a place where I’ll be sharing with you my new discovery related to the author business. It can be be new tools, books and even new ways of doing things that are far better than how I do things now.
Not only that, I even share with you any changes that I’ve made in my author business on the blog too.
And since The Efficient You is about the author business, there’s no doubt that you’ll hear my two-cents about businesses and publishing industry in general on this blog as well.
Just to be clear that this blog is only recommended for those who already get their feet wet in publishing. If you’re new to publishing and you intend to go hybrid or indie, I highly recommend you to have a look at this page instead.
I won’t deny that the Twitter being rebranded into X can feel sudden to many of us. If the rebranding is such a big concern to you, here’s why you don’t need to worry so much about it and what you should do instead.
Sad to say, the way your author website looks is just as important as getting a professionally-done book cover. The good news is it doesn’t cost you an arm and leg to get a professional-looking website thanks to these themes.
Not going to lie that there are plenty of project management software out there. But many of them however are geared for the large teams. Here’s what makes Trello a better choice for the individual users and a small team.
