The Wellness Author and the Wedding Planner: A Tale of Time –
When I turned on my car radio recently, I was intrigued to hear about a study by the wedding industry. They found that the average woman invests 100 hours a month planning her wedding, for several months. Just think, 100 hours a month equals about 25 hours a week. That’s almost a full-time job, considering that Americans work an average of 34.4 hours a week.
Now a wedding is obviously an important life event, and it’s a personal choice how much time anyone devotes to planning their big day. But after all that planning, the event is over in a few hours, and you are left with the memories, and a stack of bills.
100 Hours a Month to Write a Wellness Book or Just One?
Now think about what else you could accomplish in 100 hours a month. You could write a wellness book actually in far less time.
Most people can easily write 750 words in less than an hour. You could write a blog post or a long Facebook message to a friend in that amount of time. Obviously, this would be the first draft, without going back to edit for grammar, language, and punctuation.
So, if you could write 750 words, 5 days a week, you would have 3750 words in a week. In just 6 weeks, you would have 22,500 words which could be the first draft of a very nice sized book of over 100 pages.
Now let’s say you could write for 1–1.5 hours per day, 5 days a week. You could write 1000 words per day in that amount of time, which comes to 5,000 words in a week. In just 6 weeks, you would have 30,000 words, or a book of 150 pages. In 8 weeks, you’d have 40,000 words, or 200 pages – a full-sized book!
A book with your name on it!
Your book will make you the authority in your niche, help people worldwide, and leave your legacy long after you’re gone while possibly helping generations of people in the future.
You could write a whole book in 1/5 of the time the average bride spends planning her wedding.
Now, what if you could write your whole book in just 1 hour, or even 2 or 3? Yes, that’s possible if you dictate your book, have it transcribed, and then get professional editing. It’s a wonderful option if you simply don’t have even one hour a day to devote to your book or if you don’t enjoy writing.
For busy wellness professionals or non-writers, this is an ideal way to have a book with your name on it, without devoting the oceans of time it takes to plan a wedding, or even to write a book. You don’t have to write the definitive masterpiece on the subject. You just have to write a short, focused book that solves a problem for your target audience.
