Trusting Your Process- How To Find Your Work Flow Process, Trust It and Not Take Shortcuts

By- Tom Kubrak


  1. Think about it

  2. Decide what you’re going to do

  3. Write it down

  4. Try it out

  5. Try it out again

  6. Make adjustments as needed

It’s not hard but it’s something that we overlook because it takes effort and it seems contrary as in ‘You need to get the project done in 3 days and why would you take a third of that time just writing and planning?”

Be Patient

It doesn’t happen right away. It just might not work right away, but keep trying. A singer that I did an interview a little while back said it best when she said, “If you’re in the same position a year from now as you were today then you need to make some changes.”

Don’t Skip Steps

Check out Paul Jun’s article on Goin’s Writer He mentions that a lot of writers “seek shortcuts” and that it’s normal but he refers back to his yoga teacher saying “Trust the process.” Check it out here

When you start getting set up continue to be patient and don’t rush to start to get to work. Yes, there will be times when you have 3 or 4 deadlines to hit in the next few days on top of your meetings and phone calls but still… trust it and do the best you can to pace yourself so you can have the energy throughout each work session.

Clear Your Body and Mind

Seeing Results

This is where you start getting excited. You start shouting in excitement, “It’s working! All my hard work is paying off!”

Continue to Trust it 

It’s also a time where you might also start getting a little cocky and think you can start skipping some of the steps you set up before. You may have to make some changes, but stay consistent with your process.
