It’s been a crazy busy couple of weeks for me, which means that I have had to make the absolute most out of my writing time. Fortunately, that hectic schedule seems to be the catalyst that pushes me to do my best work.
The things that I have churned out over the past few days have been really high-quality work, which has me wondering if I should put myself under that kind of pressure on a more regular basis.
On the other hand, I’m not sure my nervous system could handle consistent exposure to that amount of stress.
If you are feeling some stress of your own this week, let me help out a bit and toss you a few ideas to create compelling content in a hurry. Let’s get it.
Where Are They Now?
One of the things that my cooks enjoy more than anything else is talking about all of the employees that are no longer with us.
In the restaurant business, most people who leave don’t do it on the best terms, so the good ones think it’s hysterical to remind me about all of the people that didn’t work out.
This gave me the idea that we could flip the concept upside down and highlight some of the people who used to work with us that have gone on to do some amazing stuff all over the world.
You probably have people like that in your work history too.
What Are Your Meal Prepping?
I’ve lost 15 pounds since the beginning of the year, and a large part of that is because I have been spending my time off on Sunday and Wednesday evenings prepping out my meals for the following 2-4 days.
Meal prepping is a ton of work, but it’s the only way that I have ever been able to stick to any diet. But you don’t have to know anything about diets or meal prep to take this content idea and run with it.
Just think about your favorite things to cook that also work well as leftovers and you’re already on your way!
What’s Your Cheat Day Meal?
Another fun twist on diet talk that never fails to resonate with an audience is pointing out some of your favorite things to eat when you break your diet.
The classic McDonald’s Big Mac Extra Value Meal is an answer that everyone across the country can relate to, but I also like to highlight some local options like the Brighton Hot Dog Shoppe or a little bar called Hollywood Gardens across the river from my house.
Once again, you don’t even need to be on a diet to talk about the kinds of foods you crave. Just start making a list and then take some time to describe how those delicious treats make you feel.
Have a Great Week!
