Are you tired of content creation? This newsletter issue will give you the prescription. But first let's consider why you're sick of creating content online:

  1. Lack of recognition: no one pays attention to what you create which demotivates you to continue your work.

  2. Lack of ideas: you don't know what to write about. Your mind is full of ideas but every time you sit down trying to create it is a constant struggle.

  3. Lack of energy: you don't feel like creating. Life has got the better of you. 

There are many tips and tricks online to fall back in love with your creation. We'll get into these in a minute. But if you want the ultimate prescription to cure laziness and pump out content like a machine, here's the only word you need to bear in mind: VALUE.

Always provide value to your audience. Every time you get stuck ask yourself. Why do you start this in the first place? What value do you hope to add to the world? Is it something people want? You can't go wrong if you look to add value. 

Now onto the newsletter...

5 Impactful Reads

1. Microwave economy by David Perell:

People in the modern world never stop to optimize their life. The experience resembles eating a microwave meal out of cheap and convenience. We get hot steamy meals in less than a minute but there's a loss of aesthetics and craftmanship.

The key here is not just declutter your life of the non-essentials but also be aware of your trade-offs we make —  Does it make your life too generic?


2. The Minimal Zen To Done Method by Leo Babauta:

Task management has always been a pain for me. I tried many tools online (Momentum dashboard, Todoist, Asana, Trello) but never truly committed to any.

Part of the reason I guess is because I'm more of a burster than a plodder. I like to operate in the artist's way based on moods and inspiration. That is to work to a flexible schedule rather than a thought out one.

The problem with online tools is I tend to get into planning with detailed steps, but then fail to meet the expectation, which demotivates me to continue after a few days.

Recently, I adopted Leo Babauta's minimal method of planning on paper. This comes in 4 steps: 

  1. Collect everything in one inbox. 

  2. Process your inbox every day. 

  3. Set 3 most important tasks daily and get done. 

  4. Do, one task at a time, no distraction.


3. Inbox zero: How to have fewer inboxes:

While digging into Zen Habits archive for ways to simplify my workflow, I also found this gem on Inbox zero. No this doesn't just refer to email inbox, it takes into account all of your information streams, including apps, social media, email, blogs, books, etc.

The way to achieve inbox zero comes in 2 parts:

A. Minimize your inbox.

  1. List all the ways you receive information.

  2. Evaluate each to see if it gives you value.

  3. Find ways to combine or eliminate your inbox (aim to have 4-7 inboxes).

B. Master your inbox.

  1. Check and process your inbox every day (Don't check less than a day, it'll pile up).

  2. Process from top down, make quick decisions: delete, delegate, do it in less than 2 minute, defer it to later (add it to your to-do list).

  3. Repeat, keep your inbox empty.

My biggest problem is forgetting to follow my blocked time for set activities as I like to do things on mood. Still figure out how to fix this? If you have any idea, let me know in the comment.


4. Are your days busy? Take control

When it comes to achieving productivity and sanity, 3 things are important —  organization, goals, routines. Keep these in mind and follow these 7 steps to take back control in your life: 

  1. Block time for what matters. 

  2. A single list of tasks or several next-action lists broken down into context. 

  3. Take 15-30 minutes in the morning to plan your day. 

  4. Stop multitasking. 

  5. Control upcoming conversations: only check emails in your blocked time. 

  6. Review your day. 

  7. Set a morning & evening routine.


5. On digital minimalism by New Calport:

One key to slowing down your life is minimizing low-value activities.

I'm habitually addicted to low-value activities. I tend to spend a lot of time on my own, like writing, spend a lot of time reading blog posts & emails, and overcommit myself for fear of missing out. This has resulted in a lot of fruitless work with not so much ROI.

This week, I came upon a post by New Calport about digital minimalism. The term doesn’t turning your back against technology but rather embracing a few tools to help you make the change you want.

This also means choosing the online activities that can add the most value those to your offline situations. Because changes don’t happen online.


That’s it for the week.

Now back to Naomi!


Hi everyone,

It’s Naomi again. Sorry for letting wait so long for another issue. This week, let’s talk information overload.

Information overload is a real issue, but withdrawal isn't the solution. It's like refusing to eat when you want to lose weight, the effect is counterproductive. 

A better way to cope with information is the same as eating—Conscious consumption. You’ve got to pay attention to what you consume. First, let go of the habit of mindless scrolling. Don’t dive into an article, video, or podcast unless it serves your needs. Then, limit your reading to a few trusted sources. It's okay to stop consuming from sources that no longer add value to your life. 

Here’re 5 long reads I dig in this week to help you cure information overload. Enjoy!

This week is inspired by Muhammad’s Newsletter issue—Information Junkie.


📕 5 Impactful Long Reads:

1. How to deal with information overload? by Neil Kakkar

"Most content is absolute shite. Then there’s some mediocre content, and then there are the gems".

In this article, Neil highlights 3 ways to help you improve the quality of your content consumption.

This is based on the Information Pipeline: Source ➡️ Filter ➡️ Consumption.

To increase the chance of finding gems, you could:

  1. Increase your consumption bandwidth: The more you read, the more likely you find gems. So the key to this approach is to consume from various sources.

  2. Cull your inputs: ''the fewer people you chill with, the less bullshit you deal with". With this approach, limit the sources you consume from. Choose either people with similar interests as yours or completely diverse interests; select your sources from the masses, the tourists, the diggers.

  3. Improve your filters: Best sources result in less filters (because all content is great). Look for the best curators on the web and read what they recommend. Either subscribe to newsletters or read curated sessions on their blogs. 

Talking of best curations, check out this great archive of The Idea Muse Newsletter.


2. The paradox of abundance by David Perell

"Environments of abundance are bad for the median consumer but extremely good for a small number of conscious ones."

Such is the paradox of abundance.

And here are some examples in the essay: 

  • 78% of peoplein America are at risk of obsesity but the most wealthy and health-conscious America have never been in better shape.

  • Twitter Explorer tab is littered with celebrity gossips and trashy news, but Twitter is also one of the world's top intellectual communities.

Information abundance is not all bad as it widens our opportunity to access quality onformation and improve our knowledge. The key is conscious consumption. Don't let the algorithm dictate your reading habit with shallow, emotional-jarring content.

A rule of thumb to succeed in the world of Information Abubdance:

"Ignore the junk food, follow the right people, and drink their recommendations deeply."


3. The long tail by Chris Anderson: 

An accumulation of "misses" can make a tangible market. 

Instead of going after popular content, online businesses can accumulate a long tail of unpopular content and tailor their offers to customer needs. 

This works for 2 reasons: 

  1. Most people's interest differ from the mainstream. (Not everyone is into blockbusters, there's also audience for indie films, anime, documentary).

  2. Without the need for local audience and physical boundaries, a 'miss' content has the same chance of profitability as a hit. (A local theater has to make sure a movie will fill at least 1500 seats before releasing; Netflix doesn't have to condider this—an flop in theater can do well here)

All successful online business aggregate a long tail in some way. Here's how they do it:

  1. Sell everything: Both popular and unpopular content.

  2. Lower the price: People buy more if it's cheap

  3. Pick for us: Use past behaviors to make future offers.

What does this have to do with information overload? 

Be careful with businesses with a long tail. In relation to paradox of abundance we discuss above: The long tail business offer more alternatives (because it doesn't consider just 'hits', it launches everything—genres within gernes, niches within niches). So more alternative, more like, more consumption. But our resources are limited. Theu can't consume them all. Thus, we need to lay attention to the algorithms and set limits to avoid it dictate our life.


4. Looking for Syllabus 2.0 by Dani Grant: 

Why you consume information in the first place? Chances are you want to become an expert on a topic. Here's a way to quickly ramp up your understanding of a subject without digging in the sea of articles.

Look for a syllabus.

A syllabus is a learning guide. It tells you what to read, in what order, how long it takes.

A syllabus is different from a list of links—It contains bits and pieces of knowledge from the open source. Here's an example with 8 hours of podcast, talks and blog posts distilled into down in a 30-minute guide. 

One benefit of following a syllabus is it can help you avoid information overload, save time on trashy content and achieve your goals faster. 


5. Why Twitter Is Dope And How To Use It by Nikhil Krishman

If you like to use Twitter as a idea source, check out this guide

Main takeaways: 

  • The purpose of Twitter is to have conversations about topics you love, not to share personal updates (Usw facebook and instagram for that). 

  • Twitter gives priorities to ideas. So ollow people, not brands. 

  • Replies as much as you tweet: 2 tweets:1 reply is a good ratio. 

  • Follow people who your favorite accounts follow. 

  • Consume from lists of dofferent topics.

💌 Productivity Catches In Emails

  • This is your brain on Zoom (Found in TechCrunch): According to Microsoft studies, taking calls without breaks can result in a high level of beta wave, which is linked to higher stress. The research also found that "Zoom fatigue" affects women more than men. One tip by Stanford University is to reduce this effect is to position the camera far away and pace around and turn off self-view.

  • How to read a book in a week? Alberto from We Who Think shares some killer tips for reading this week: 

    • Make time for reading, 

    • Replace other forms of entertainment, 

    • Choose the right topic, 

    • Choose the right book, 

    • Ditch paper, 

    • Quit bad books,

DM Daniel to join their Discord group to share your passion for reading.

  • Pick one rule to guide your creative work (Found in For The Interested Newsletter): Best selling author Fred Dust took the advice an Uber taxi driver gave him and knocked out 500 pages for a book in a short period of time. He admitted this he wouldn't be able to do if he just forced himself to sit behind the writing desk everyday. He’d have abandoned the project at 75 pages. Take the peek at the advice here


💡 More Productivity Tips

  • Going all in (in 5AM Miracle Podcast by Jeff Sanders). There's a lot of talk about balancing different areas in your life and work. Yet, imbalance is driving force behind any kind of success. Great things are not mediocre. They're life-changing. You can't make great things if you treat everything on the same level. You must invest in one big thing and ignore all others.

  • Tune out to tune in (in Farnam Street Newsletter): "Deafness freed Beethoven as a composer because he no longer had the society soundtrack in his ear". Sometimes you need to ignore society to create your best work. 

  • Drink coffee at the right time to be more productive. After you wake up, your brain produces cortisol, stress steroid that makes you alert and awake. Cortisol peaks around 8 and 9am for most people. So if you drink coffee during this time, it's largely wasted. Other small peaks during the day are 12 - 1pm, 5.30 - 6.30 m. Avoid these time windows to get optimal effect from your coffee. (More, coffee may not enhance your creative, but it’s essential for executing the creative tasks).

  • Stop spending time on the thing you hate by Arthur C. Brooke : There are only two ways to waste time: “Spend time on an activity crowding out your prosuctivity, and spending time on an activity you don't actually like.” Most people waste time because they fail to evaluate cost-benefit of an activity. Here's 2 ways to combat that:

    1. Schedule downtime: Utilize time-blocking & Make decisions in advance of how to use your time and stick to it. Include all activities not just work.

    2. Give your bad habits a monetary value. If you see every task you do in terms of hourly wage, your productivity will increase immensely.

💕 Other cool things I learn

  • Being a contrarian doesn't mean you are being smart. (in Mindf*ck Monday #28) To break unconventional wisdom, you must first understand it, otherwise you're just being an asshole. 

  • 2 new terms I learned this week in Tips for Unrelenting Newsletter by Nate Zeisler: Agency and Structure. Agency is the thought and action you take to exert your power. Structure is social factors that affect your thought and action as an individual. When you choose to work on your passionate project, it's an agency. Meanwhile, the environment, circumstance, or people that influence your decisions are the structure. A of either of the two can lead to a life crisis. Learn more in this interesting read on career flexibility and stability

  • "Self-talk is inherently self-amplifying", Arvid from Bootstrap Founder Newsletter. The more you think about not doing something, the more it gains strength. If you're like most people, anxiety is the default state of mind. It doesn’t have to be. You can choose reflection and relaxation. Just be careful not to mistake relaxation with binge-distractions. TV, video games, social media, some distraction is good, if you spend too much time on distractions, it can make you more anxious.  

  • Aim to trend your life upward, Eric Lee from Savvy Saturday Newsletter: What if you see your life in general as a stock market? Eric Lee had the answer as he tends to visualize his skills and areas of focus in life as  a whole bunch of stock tickers, going upwards and downwards. Here's the benefit: He can notice what works and what doesn't. From there, he can make decisions to drive the upwards trends while stripping off the downwards trends. 

  • Embrace the grind (Found in The Curious Bunch Newsletter): The pains and tears of the creator are not the first thing that comes to the reader's mind. They only see the glint and glamour. In this post, Jacob Caplan-Moss drew an analogy between programming and magicians. Not only do they bring magic to life, but they also endure endless hours of tedious jobs to make things happen. Here's a quote that stuck with me: "But, sometimes magic is mundane. If you're ready to pull off the mundane, you can pull off the impossible." 


That’s it for the week.

MYB #27: Why toxic productivity is ruining your life

Stop running, you're not being chased by anyone. It's all in your head.

A word on toxic productivity…

Toxic productivity stems from a gap, the unjustifiable urge to do something when you don't have to. All your life, there have been plenty of things to do. Now all of a sudden, a void.

Of course, you are afraid. So the first reaction is to fill the void. Work, work, work. Harder. More. When you're not working, you should be reading, watching, learning. The key is to keep the flow going, suppressing the feelings at all costs.  

But here’s the uncomfortable truth: 

“The more you try to be productive, the less productive you are. The more you put on the show, the more resistant people are to you.”

The way to close the void is never embracing more, but embracing less. That is to be comfortable with doing less. Allow yourself to relax. Do things that spark your joy instead of going the extra mile. 

I know you’re trapped in this mentality, “I can work all day”, “I feel happy working”. But pause a second to think: Is everything you do productive? Do they add value to society? 

Yet again, there are many ways to contribute. It doesn't have to be selling a product. It could be investing time for your loved ones and friends.

It's easy to excuse out of social hangout because you're snowed under work. It's easy to put off a call to your mom because you have work to do. It's easy to ignore your friend and plow on with whatever you do. But in the end, these are all that matters.

The hustle culture values work above all else. It forgets at the heart of any kind of work is the people. You're starting a business for the people. Starbucks isn’t open to selling overpriced coffee. They’re open for the people, those who value a classy environment to enjoy coffee with friends and family. Always work for the people. 

Stop running, you're not being chased by anyone. It's all in your head. When you stop, you will see clearly what you need to do. It's a lot less than what you think you must do now.


💡 Ideas of The Week

1. Content batching: 

I've never been a fan of content batching —  Guess it destroys your attention span. How can you concentrate on doing a bunch of tasks at once? But this week, I got this all wrong. Content batching can be quite helpful if you group similar tasks and do just one thing for the day. 

For example, you set out Monday doing only the research and planning. Tuesday, only doing the writing. Wednesday, editing. Thursday, scheduling. Friday, scripting promotion posts. 

The trick is you can plan, write, edit, promote, schedule up to a few weeks of content, but only commit to one activity for the day — either planning or writing or editing or promoting. 

This is what I just learned from Sunny Lenarduzzi Youtube channel. In this video, she step-to-step to batch content for 6 weeks in just 6 hours. Wicked! I feel so pumped to try out yesterday, 

If you plan to write more in less time, watch this video in full. It’s life-changing!


2. Analog vs digital note-taking: 

If you follow my past issues (can I give you a hug? You're absolutely best), you know I'm obsessed with Obsidian at the moment. Anyway, I just found out a striking difference between analog and digital note-taking. 

Here is it: on paper, you do at best store information in a linear fashion. That is if you take notes on a course, you can only see it in chapters 1 to 10. It’s all good if your intention is simply to have everything in one place. But if you want to see the connection, how ideas are linked together, and how to create more content, taking notes in a linear fashion doesn't do the job. 

This is why digital note-taking comes in. Taking notes in digital platforms such as Obsidian, Roam Research, Evernote allows you to link ideas together. Like neurons in the brain. They're connected. The more information added to the system, the more effort you put in linking the ideas, the stronger the neurons become. The system will not only remember stuff, but also think better, and be more creative. 

I’m getting goosebumps to write about, do you? Or are you a fan of paper note-taking? Let me know! 


3. Invent your antagonists: 

We all do it in our writing, talking against an enemy, be it a habit, problem, group, or individual. 

Writing solves problems. Every problem is an enemy. It should come as no surprise that writing is most relatable when it includes antagonists. Example: going from broke to $10,000 per month, beating an illness to earning 6-figure a year, landing a dream job after being laid off, etc. 

So, this enemy, if you can describe "him" in a way that makes your audience gloat to see him lose, your writing will be much more powerful. It shows "justice is done", "David wins Gothiah''. Don't we all want more fairness in life? 

Here’s the piece by Sabana Grande that inspires this thought. Check it out and also 7 more to uplevel your writing game. 


📙 Book I'm grinding on

Making History by Stephen Fry.

This week, I'm absorbed in a novel by Stephen Fry. It tells the story about the fated union of a historian post-graduate student and physicist as they traveled back in time and deleted the most hated man in history. 

I find myself flipping through the page for hours unconsciously. Not only because of the riveting storyline but also the creative way it is told: the double narratives, funny tone poem lines, screenplay, literature title name dropping, history facts, love, friendship.

I got a little fancy, dreamy, crying, laughing, pondering. I also came to realize:

Creativity is a freeland; a writer does more than putting words on the page, he's creating his own kingdom.

Whether you’re a fiction or non-fiction fan, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this creative tour.

💭 Quote of the week

"The longings of a creative spirit then? Maybe my soul craved expression in Art? But: can't draw, can't write, can't sing, can't play Great. Where does that leave me? A kind of Salieri deal perhaps. Cursed with enough divine fire to recognize it in others, but not enough to create anything myself." — Michael Young, in Making History
