Content creation is key for growth
To grow you need to create content. To grow as a business, as an individual, as a community. All is a function of how much content you manage to put out first.
Writing is the first thing we learn in school - and somehow the cheapest way to create content.
Yet it is also what look like the less approachable.
Here is a few tips I hope you find useful to improve your content creation...
So you have this book that you wrote.
This newsletter you so carefully crafted.
This course you designed with attention and love.
You are ready for launch.
The world is waiting for you ….
…. well ….
No one is waiting for you.
Not even the people who registered for (tick the right answer):
your newsletter your course your e-book. — > But they signed up, right?...
Design is at the core of everything you do.
The piece of hardware you are using to read this post has been designed.
The website you read is the result of a design process.
Design is about creating the experience that will allow your audience to enjoy from what you want to give them.
As a kid you’ve designed carefully this present for your mum on mother’s day....
Can you design iOS with Microsoft Word? Well maybe you never thought it was possible, have a look at the video and then let’s talk…
When you know what you want to create, when you have a clear vision of the result then tools are merely a way to get there and you will get to the result you want.
In the video above, you can see a perfect execution of someone executing the iOS design into Microsoft Word....
The short answer is : you don’t. There is no such thing as “staying” motivated. Instead you need to cultivate necessity.
Necessity You know this feeling you get when you’re getting dangerously close to a deadline. Like you have to get that shit done. Now. Err.. actually yesterday, but yeah, now. And you get full power into your essay/project/report. That feel like motivation, right? So now the question is more how do I stay motivated all the time?...
You know it is true.
You know it is right.
Yet, you do not get to do it.
Too busy? Too lazy?
Maybe you are just unclear with your goals.
Humans are goal-driven animals. We just cannot move our little finger if we do not have a reason for it. It may be a primal instinct that drive you toward action, and skip the rationalisation altogether, or it may be a cold rationalised series of strategic moves, or a mix of both....
I stumbled upon this video the other day.
Some ex navy seal guy, they do army-style training programs for people who like to get their butt kicked.
But also, they happen to have very good content on psychology of motivation (which actually make sense given what they do as a job.)
The following video is about the reasons behind lack of motivation, lazy-style, I’ll do it tomorrow approach.
TL;DW: Lazy is incompetence-driven....
