View jaysdailygram's Instagram May 2015, I made the decision to write a novel. That wasn't the first time I'd made that particular decision, but I recommitted to the idea.

I decided to take on whatever challenges writing a novel entailed, however difficult. 
It's December 2016, and the book still hasn't been written, but that's all right. The past 19 months have taught me a valuable lesson. In my opinion it's the single most important lesson any self-respecting writer can learn.

You have to learn how to get out of your own way.

For some of writers, the prospect of writing a novel is so compelling, so thrilling, that we become anxious when the process gets too hard.

The process of writing a book is a transformative process. You have to become the person capable of writing that story. That means you have to look inward, challenge your beliefs, push your limits, overcome your fears. And all that takes time. 1431004733564650740_43736557

View jaysdailygram's Instagram You put up with it, you allow it, you endure it, you accept it.

You continue to subject yourself to it, that drug, that toxin, that environment, those people, without any form of interference or adverse action.

You make excuses for it, you defend it, not because you like it, but because you've become too accustomed to it.

Years go by and nothing's changed. You're in the same spot as you've always been. Regret sinks in. You should have done this, you should have done that. If you could, you would go back in time and do things differently. Now you're angry. You should have never tolerated that thing. You should have divorced yourself from it sooner. You'd have saved so much time, so much heartache. 1431001610846534210_43736557

View jaysdailygram's Instagram Much alike the four calendar seasons (spring, summer, autumn and winter) depression is temporary, nonpermanent, cyclical—in other words, it comes and goes.

It’s a normal part of life, and the sooner we learn to embrace it as such, the better. Depression is, after all, the process from which we grow and become better versions of ourselves.

We've adopted the medical/pharmaceutical definition of the word depression. By adopting this definition, by claiming it, internalizing it, digesting it, defending it, your brain chemistry changes.

There comes a point when it all becomes too much, too depressing, and we begin to hide from our problems, we make ourselves small, conserve, minimize, distance ourselves from all pressures, internal and external.

Depression is like rainwater. It sucks to get caught in the rain. Your clothes get all soggy and wet, you get sick. Not to mention rainy weather can really put a damper on things. Instead of going to the park and kicking a ball around, you now have to stay home and watch television reruns.

But without enough rainwater, plants can’t grow. When plants receive the right amount of water, they flourish. Not enough and they shrivel up and die. Too much and their roots begin to rot.

Without the right amount of depression, people can't get the nutrients they need to sustain life. Not enough depression and they shrivel up and die. Too much and they become bitter and angry. 1431000264257013507_43736557

View jaysdailygram's Instagram On the fourth Thursday of November, year after year, we come together in the spirit of gratitude, kindness and appreciation, to celebrate what we already have, not what we don't have. 
Then…

Mere hours later and thousands of people all across the country are lined up outside shopping centers, superstores and malls for Black Friday, one of the busiest shopping days of the year. 
What does that say?

Let's not forget the true cost of cheap clothing. Black Friday is not what it seems. Around the world, millions of workers endure hazardous work conditions to produce clothes for top Western brands. Workers are treated poorly. Factory fires are common.

Workers' rights, environmental rights, and human rights, are all lost. All in the name of profit. 1430999208617591038_43736557

View jaysdailygram's Instagram Time is precious. For most of us, time is all we have. There aren't many things more valuable to us than time. We're all afraid of losing it. 
We don't like it when our time is interrupted. I suppose that's why so many of us prefer to communicate via text. We're free to respond on our own time. 
How often do we get upset when we're stuck in traffic, or when the Internet moves too slowly? 
Stock exchanges can now execute trades in less than half a millionth of a second. That's a million times faster than it takes the human mind to make a decision. 
If we all valued our time, invested our time, together, there wouldn't be anything we couldn't afford. 1430992822529765705_43736557

View jaysdailygram's Instagram Facebook works a lot like an in-person networking event. It's all about engagement. You increase your potential for business by shaking hands and taking names. There's a direct correlation between the amount of time and effort you put in and the results you receive. The more you give, the more you get. 
Engagement is power. I'm talking linebacker power. Luke Kuechly. This kind of power is measured by two things: strength and speed. In much the same way, engagement is measured by quantity and quality.

You can go to a networking event and hand out as many business cards as you want, but unless you make the conscious effort to build rapport and trust, you’ll never manage to transition your prospects from awareness to conversion.

Social media works the same way. 
Instead of blasting ads and promos to anyone and everyone on Facebook, take the time to really figure out what you can do to serve your intended audience. 
Otherwise, you're just another tree that fell in the forest with no one around to hear it fall. 1430991008820512380_43736557

View jaysdailygram's Instagram Television exploded throughout American culture in the 1950s, quickly becoming the primary medium to influence public opinion. By the early 1960s, there were color TVs in practically every middle-class living room. 
To keep up with this sudden attention shift, writers and ad execs had to adopt their marketing strategies to fit the new medium. They took the time to research the native language of TV. Do men and women watch TV differently? If so, in what ways? What sort of shows do children like to watch first thing Saturday mornings? 
Well, the same thing’s happened all over again. Television is the new radio, and social has become the primary medium of American culture. 
Unfortunately, most companies and small business owners don't understand this new medium, how it works, why it works, or how to leverage it to their advantage. They can't figure out how to gain any traction in this new world. Frustrated, they hope and pray that this is just a passing fad, and nothing more. 1430988528954924912_43736557

View jaysdailygram's Instagram If Facebook were a country, it would be the most populated country in the world. Facebook has more than 1.7 billion active users worldwide; 75 percent of which access the site via mobile devices.
People use Facebook to connect with their family and friends, to upload bits and pieces of their personal lives in the form of photos, videos, and status updates. It's the social network that redefined our culture, that ultimately changed the way we consume information.
For that reason, small business owners and brand managers consider it to be a legitimate business tool. Everyday, more and more companies and organizations are utilizing Facebook Pages, Facebook Ads, and Facebook Social Plugins to reach the network's massive community.
Unfortunately, there're those that are still skeptical. I can't imagine why. Not only does Facebook have the most sophisticated analytics anywhere, its also inexpensive (practically free compared to television and print ads). If you’ve created a Page, but aren't seeing any significant results, chances are you're making the same mistake thousands of businesses are making, which is to use traditional marketing strategies. You blast ads and promos without first taking the time to understand the language of social media.

View jaysdailygram's Instagram Writers write for a myriad of reasons. At least we think we do. Some writers write to make a name for themselves, some writers write to change the world, to feel alive, to discover new meaning.

We are all governed by the stories we tell ourselves. It's part of human nature. We're natural storytellers. It's what keeps us alive, what keeps us safe. We make up stories to make sense of the world around us, to explain why things happen, or don't happen, to us.

But what happens if we tell ourselves the wrong stories? 1430982201100908987_43736557

I take off my clothes just before I get into the shower, and as soon as I’m done, I wrap a towel around myself. 
Then I put lotion on like it’s a chore, and immediately put clothes back on.
