Creating for Learning (and Profit)

In the past two years, I have tried to create projects, validate product ideas, setup landing pages, develop my following, without success. Two years of learning Reflecting on this, I see now that it was not because I was using the wrong methods. It was a lack of focus. Not because I was not interested in what I was doing, but I always ended up doubting that the end product would be useful, and that anyone would ever buy it. Read more

Doing One Thing [71/365]

To make progress, one of the best solution is to focus on one single thing.

I was focused (although not on something productive), and completely forgot about writing my daily post. I have been struggling about this for a while now, and I don’t think there is a perfect solution. Read more

Tired but Not Down [68/365]

There are days where you’ll be feeling really tired, and won’t want to keep doing anything. That’s fine. Everyone has such days. It does not mean you’re stopping, it just means you need a break. Take the time to rest, to get better. It’s your body’s way of telling you that you should take it easy for a bit. This time is as important as the time you get down to work. Read more
