Focus on the concept of writing

If I want to become a better writer, not only I should keep reading, not only I should keep writing, but it will get even better if I understand people more.

Seeing through people is a quality many writers have. They distill traits and character of people they have come across. They see them in such a rich way that they become intensely creative when they describe them.

But you don’t have to be describing people if you want to become a writer. You can describe concepts. Find rich metaphors. Explore analogy and how some principles are universal to different fields.

I’m trying to become I better writer. I guess the best way to practice is to take risks. There is literary nothing to lose.

I’m spending my day reading and learning principles that I believe I should bear in mind for any future endeavor. Taking risk is one of the principles. Deep understanding of what others want is another.

I’m discovering all of that, so I’m trying to navigate through the wisdom. There are parts that I should try now, and other advice that I can go back to afterwards.

But finding who would listen is the first step. Understanding worldviews of others. And searching for value that can be created.

Just keep on researching, or just in mind that there a tribes that need you, and there are tribes that want you to lead them.

Basically what I try to do here is to focus on something that is of interest to me and that people want to learn about. The concept of writing is quite a good match for now.


Writing for a tribe instead

Hello again. i wrote almost everything on the other daily blogs.

I feel that my need to write is a monster eating all my energy reserves.

I should cut that out to the 20% that needs such energy.

The thing with this type of journalling is that I don;t need to research anything. I just tell my story. That’s why it is so enjoyable. And 20% blog should be the same: enjoyable.

I should not be feeling "oh crap, I have to create value to this people again"

I trust Seth Godin when he says that he enjoyed working on businesses that work more that on businesses that failed but he enjoyed working one. Buyakacha!

I nee to restrain, focus and make it count. What I’m doing right now doesn’t count, in term of 2050 goal, but it more counts for the long long term self-reflection. I’m not sure I’m helping anybody with this. I’m not sure that I’m helping myself.

But this writing feels quick though, I don’t feel it like a pain. Although there is good reason to believe that it’s pumping my energy.

This can turn to be a navel-gazing daily exercise, even if I do a lot of those already. I don’t know it doesn’t seem reasonable.

But what will I be replacing this with? Not sure… I’m not sure which tribe I want to cater. I have to find out. If I frame an activity that is more pertinent to my 2050 goal, then priorities will take order. This will vanish to be replaced by a more "catering" writing.

My first vlog is uploading

It’s sunday and my daily vlog started today.

I hope it will be like my previous blogging, Seth Godin style, I used to do in isnotagame.

I want to keep it brief and simple like isnotagame. My strategy to make it a habit is to write blog posts before I sleep. Like I used to. Every night. Then wake up first thing in the morning, record my reading in audio. Then drawing animation, on Illustrator. It should be the simplest animation and then put them on videoscribe. Then I use Premiere. Slap the audio, slice and dice, then on to add a music track of the day. Something I want to listen. Then few enhancements, encodings and gone!!

Apart from that it was a ghill day. I at the same time produced and laughed. Let me just be grateful and go to sleep.

Holistic reflection and remember how useful Autofocus is

I’m reflected on the situation holistically. Including sustain the art project, developing my TimeTracker programming.

Regarding the art project, it’s encouraging to view first viewers spending 3 min, viewers from India, US, Israel. That means working on the axes of design, content, and backlinking will take the project to fruition and I can eventually convert that to cash.

Regarding the TimeTracker, I’m enjoying learning how to script in vba and I can apparently move to next (really close) step. HTA programming which looks like Html but for windows, which is amazing!

The listening and reading, about vulnerability (which I didn’t really digest with practical actions), about Who is it for? when it comes to selling a product and the remaining Seth Godin principles, about Derek Sivers "What I hate NOT to do" programming is definitely one of those. Writing for myself, certainly too…but not sure about writing for others.

The big story these days is that I’m back to wanting to jump on different things and try out new things without sticking to the original projects I have started. As Seth Godin I think said, I forget that I can do ONE thing for 10 years then another thing for next 10 years and so on, I don’t have to start them all right now. I forget that I can spread my projects through time and take them to fruition one by one, sequentially.

I ingurgitated a lot of information these days,
from the youtube FightMediocrity books,
to actual books (PMBA),
Sivers blog,
Seth Godin,
Kant’s definition of Reality that can be a nice self-research trigger,
linkable to my art project, also I’m progressing on guitar now,
I\m enjoying cooking new things, hacking and cracking software,
Le gai savoir (L’ivresse : in vino realitas).
VBscript and HTA programming
That business idea website from Mixergy and build an MVP for it.

I feel like it all need time to settle the dust in my mind.

But most importantly I should just log that in Autofocus.xlsx and read about the related guide from Kaufman PMBA. I’m sure that 3/4 of these will disappear from my mind once I log them down.

Ok, tomorrow, will be somewhat similar. Certainly enjoying the vba/hta programming and listening/reading/understanding/learning. I don’t know about the Christie’s art article.
