You're probably older than 5, so I won't bother trying to trick you into a streak.


If I were a marketer or pick-up artist trying to get in your pants (different motivations mind you) I'd tell you: "I have a secret."


I do, so keep reading.


As a copy writer, I'd get you right back in your imagination and have you picture a sexier you. 

A you that people can't take their eyes off. ? 

A you that's paying the bills and having three-day weekends. ? 


Let's face it, this secret will finally work; easily, and without any actual work on your part. 


You will organized, profitable, and six-pack-abified. ( your mileage may vary )


By the way, your eyes are stunning. You look so confident. How do you do it?


Now that you're primed and ready ( and have been holding your breath -- ) 


Take a deep breath. Close your eyes and get ready. Don't worry, it'll be easy.


The secret, is simple. 


<SECRET>  Get ahead of the game by 1 day. </SECRET>


That's it. Just one day.


Below are the actual implementation details of the Secret. The steps that enable you to rid-yourself-of the last-minute-anxiety once and for all.


"But wait!"


Isn't the last minute -- the best time to get stuff done? Isn't it the only time I can focus and prioritize? ( maybe - if so, we're done here. but keep reading anyway )


The steps:

1. Send @baz some money and get your Patron badge. ?

This will unlock the "scheduling" feature. ?

(That's 50% of the secret.)


2. Write an extra post right now and schedule it for tomorrow. ⏲


EXTRA BONUS: Some bonus prompts for your extra post:

"Why I prefer magic to hard work?"

"The kind of oil I prefer to rub on my six-pack abs is __________"

"When I was a kid, the thing I never told anybody was that _________"


Write honestly about anything. That's the other half of the secret. 

You will impress us all if you're just authentic and show up.


In summary: The secret is a two-step process. If you're already a patron, it's only 1 step.


Write an extra post. Schedule it. Then, every day you write, you're always a day ahead. ( you could argue that last step is many steps -- don't argue )
