Advice from the Masters: Charles Duhigg

May 11, 2016 | Writing A Book

Charles Duhigg is a Pulitzer Prize winning reporter at the New York Times. He’s also the author of The Power of Habit and Smarter Faster Better: The Secrets of Being Productive in Life and Business. They’re both excellent books, filled with advice that can make you more productive.

Today’s advice comes from the section of the latter book where Duhigg is demonstrating how he used the advice that he put into the book. Actually, it’s not advice at all. It’s an observation.

“Writing a book is a big goal— too big, in many ways, to grasp the entirety of it at first.”

I’ve decided to share that observation with everyone who contacts me about writing a book. It should lay the groundwork for some productive discussion.
