One of my clients recently shot his entire online course in just one day.

That is fast, but it’s also pretty common. Sometimes it takes a few days.

One of the big mistakes with creating courses is letting the process drag on indefinitely.

I’ve made the mistake in the past of taking months to put together a course.

The longer you let it go, the harder it is to get it done.

It seems like you keep getting ideas for additional things you could add (instead of separately those ideas out for a future product or upgrade).

Or you get distracted by another BSO (Bright Shiny Object). Yes, I’ve been there and bought the t-shirt.

One of the secrets to creating a course and getting it out there is getting it done faster!

In my last email I talked about putting together your Golden Glove first before you work on the course.

That’s vital to help you narrow your focus.

You’re not creating this product for everyone and you don’t need to cover every possible situation.

Your Golden Glove forces you to focus on your ideal client.

This narrows down both the problem you solve and the solution they’re looking for.

After you do your Golden Glove, either create a mindvmap or an outline of the steps that take your ideal clients from the problem to the promise. Often, I’ll do the mind map and then turn it into an outline.

The more prepared you are going in, the easier it is to create your course fast.

A woodsman was once asked, “What would you do if you had just five minutes to chop down a tree?”

He answered, “I would spend the first two and a half minutes sharpening my axe.”

Instead of getting excited about your course idea and diving in…often to be frustrated later…take time to sharpen your axe.

In the case of an online course, that’s putting together your Golden Glove first.

Then do your detailed outline and plan out the course.

A few hours in preparation could save you months of wasted effort.

And I would go further than this as well.

It will help you create the course your ideal client wants to buy!

Once you’ve done the prep, schedule time to create the course quickly.

That could mean carving out a weekend to get it done.

It could mean several hours each day early in the morning or late at night when it’s quiet.

It could mean hiring a videographer for an afternoon to shoot the whole training.

Or you could hold a webinar where you teach the whole close over several hours. Break up the videos into separate clips and your course is ready to go.
