Simple Plan to Get Started [41/365]

To get ready for my new adventure, there are a few elements I need some clarification upon. I’ll start the list here for reference. Who do I want to serve ? I want to serve the people who want to grow, have a full time job and don’t necessarily find the time to practice the craft they want to learn. They read books, tutorials, and watch videos, but getting started can be quite hard because you have to choose what you would be doing without knowing if that is the right thing. Read more

Creating the simplest product [40/365]

5 days ago, I was planting my flag in a topic which I don’t know a lot about. Today, I read this post which introduced me to a very logical approach to getting started step by step. So I’m changing my mind again because right now, I don’t need to be doing 25 things in parallel. I need to ship. I need a first client.

That’s usually how it goes when I try to commit to a topic. Am I doing the right thing ? Who am I to be doing this ? Is this really going to be useful ? It’s ok to ask all those questions.

Mindful Gratification Delay [37/365]

Tonight, I noticed that I really did not want to go out for my daily walk. That happens quite often, but this was a stronger pull than usual. As soon as I noticed this, I stopped for a bit and said to myself: “You don’t want to go out, and that’s ok. But do it anyway, for your minimum. Keep the habit rolling. Then, you can do whatever you want.” Read more
