In this week's newsletter: How to create, Story Card #1, Note-taking hack & many more...
What’s the most amazing thing that happened to you this week?
4 Things I thought worth sharing with y’all
1. Creating things gives me the utmost happiness.
Things I created this week:
Created the first-ever story card
Video (About my quarantine workspace)
Completed editing 70% of my website (Launching soon)
Wrote & Designed two microblogs and posted them
Brainstormed future products for GOAT Book Club
Why should you create?
We are asking the wrong question. We should ask, “Why should we not create?”
And the answer is “There is absolutely no reason why you should not create”
But if you ask me the question “Why should you create?” my answer will be very simple and I’ll answer it even in my sleep.
”Create to tell stories”
Create your own TED Talk. Everything you do on the Internet is your TED Talk.
This newsletter goes out to 250 people this week… that’s 250 people in a room listening to me. Your website is your TED Talk, your IG Feed, every word you write on Twitter is your TED Talk, every video people see on your YT channel is your TED Talk &
Every single thing you create now will be a story for your grandchildren
You will never get the opportunity like this where there is no commuting, no college outings, no party, etc you are saving more time than ever.
When you create something on your own you will sometimes fail but don’t give up.
I think one of the best examples is Leonardo da Vinci
2. How to create?
There are millions of ways to create and the most “effective creating” comes from this: Creating something you love.
EG: I love books and meeting people *BOOM* Created GOAT Book Club.
So how to create? Here it is
Find something you love that brings value to yourself and everyone around you (But Prado IDK what I love) Answer this question:
If money was not an issue what would you do till the age of 60?
Know “WHY” you are doing it (But sometimes just start we’ll figure the why later)
Figure out how can you put it out there (Website, IG, YT, Twitter, Newsletter)
Get a domain name and create an account on social media (Domain is a must… that says how serious are you about it)
CREATE and forget everything. (I had 28 subscribers for almost a year when I started this newsletter back in November 2018)
Be Consistent (Punish yourself if you miss it) but be kind.
Always be CREATING.
Share what you are you creating or what you want to create? Plus add your Twitter or IG (You never know who’s reading your comments and wants to help) If no one does I will :)
TURN ON YOUR SWITCH… It’s GAME TIME.
