If yes, read on... I wrote something a while ago about creating the context of an innovator and a billionaire. I think you all would really enjoy this article/podcast. What Is Your Billion Dollars Context? An excerpt from the article/podcast: "Your power is directly proportional to the size of the context available to you. It is perfectly well to operate with all your focus within your local environment, but your power is then limited to the local environment, and when the larger context changes, you find yourself unaware, unprepared, and at the mercy of the change that is happening in the larger context. If you want your power to grow, you have to be willing to see a context that is larger than your specific needs at this moment. Seeing that context, seeing the possibility of that context, and creating for yourself a new context gives you a brand new source of power. In the times that are coming, we will have to re-generate many new contexts for ourselves..." As you read or listen to this, share it with me and all of us here; 1. What are you getting out of this? 2. What new ideas and perspectives are opening up for you? and 3. What is your billion dollars context?
@Saqib Rasool I'd also add that some people believe it's all about taking money from people (this view is promoted by Andrew Tate). However if we only take, the world will end. From my experience it all starts from creating value, just as you pointed out in your article. Great concepts of trust, care and context. Thank you once again.
Hello there, just wanted to share a quick thought only few people seem to be aware of. If you are creating content via text, especially long form, beware of hyperlinks in your text. Because as proven by this amazing study and this inspiring quote by Elon Musk, hyperlinks lower the comprehension of the text. Why? Because every link, is a micro-decision a reader hast o make. Should I click or read on? And this destroys the reading flow and ultimately lowers comprehension. So if you want your texts to be read and understood, beware of hyperlinks. Probably it's best to put links at the very end of a text, where they belong, if readers want to continue exploring the subject. Like here: Amazing study about reading comprehension Inspiring Quote about reading by Elon Musk Just wanted to send this out to all you content creators, since there seems to be little awareness about this problem. Best, Carlos

🎉 WTF! Two THOUSAND Synthesizers 🎉 The post I made for 1,000 synthesizers introduced the severe Disjointed Knowledge Problem. And how the Synthesizer Revolution is here to fix it. But I've never fully discussed why I'm MADLY in love with Synthesizing. Put simply, I love Synthesizing because it's the best thing I know at giving me what I want. Impact, income, and fun. . We're all playing the Great Online Game. In this game there are many characters you can play. - YouTuber - Consultant - Agency Owner - Influencer - Coach - Dropshipper - Entrepreneur Each character has strengths, each has weaknesses. But there's one that I believe is the best... You see, in any game there's a META. In everything I do, I enjoy finding the META more than I enjoy playing the game! (See first image). And if you’re optimising for impact, income, and fun… Then the current META is being a Synthesizer. Here’s why: --- WHY SYNTHESIZING MAKES THE MOST IMPACT Humans are desiring machines. "I want to be rich." "I want my back to stop hurting." "I want a pony." We are constantly trying to move from Where We Are Now to Where We Want To Go. We call the things that hold us back ‘Problems’. . Impact is created by helping people solve their Problems. And... you guessed it... That's EXACTLY what Synthesizers do. Therefore making massive impact. They privately solve their own problems, then publicly share the solutions. . And there's one word in the above sentence that separates the Synthesizer from other characters like the entrepreneur, consultant, or agency owner. PUBLICLY share solutions. Other characters solve problems. But only for a hefty fee. Synthesizers leverage free content to impact millions.

I wrote an article consisting of 1000 quotes, the best ones I could find. Yeah, I went through a lot of quotes for this one and have no life https://medium.com/@jonathanmichaelson/1000-deliberately-chosen-audacious-quotes-that-will-make-you-stand-taller-552c009eab2
I'm putting everything together for my first painting video (inspired by the concept of Conformity), and I'm trying to decide if putting text on the screen is enough. Do you think it's important to have my actual voice describing the concept and narrating what I'm doing? I just.. I don't like my speaking voice that much, and especially not right now when I'm all nasally and gross cause I have Covid lol If it's important to have my voice, I'll just record video because I can't let my voice face the world alone. It's real bad. Plus, I don't have a sick accent like many of you do. I literally have a sick accent, omg. I just realized what I said after I wrote it hahaha okay, thanks for any/all input :)
@Anessa Ryce come on, you’ll make it! I know lots of the guys who don’t have the privilege to have English as their first language and they still go out there. I myself have a strong Russian accent, but it never stopped me…from writing texts…in Russian 🤣
This seems to work well so far: 1. Read your ideal viewer avatar 2. Go to https://randomwordgenerator.com/ 3. Keep your topic in mind ("focus" in my case) 4. Set a timer 30-60 min 5. Go all out, combine a random word with your topic and make a list 6. After the timer, do progressive summarization (Highlight highlighted highlights) with your avatar in mind (this means you go over the list 2-3 times, first bold, then highlight then callout) 7. Bonus: In notion drag the best ideas to the top Result 30 minutes brainstorm: 40 ideas 4 best ideas 5 good ideas 8 alright ideas 23 meh ideas

I asked Midjourney, an AI artist neural network to draw a picture of Synthesizer Skool. I typed: synthesis, ideas, content creation, videos, posts, texts, learning, community --ar 16:9 Here's the result. Enjoy!
I look at the picture and realize that it somehow reflects the essence of our group. 1. We all grow like those stalagmites. 2. Some of us are higher, some lower. But we are together. 3. We are of different colours and shapes. Just like our content.
"He that would perfect himself in any art whatsoever, let him betake himself to the reading of some sure and certain work upon his art many times over; for to read many books upon your art produceth confusion rather than learning." - Old saying also noted these two verses below Ecl 12:12- And by these, my son, be further warned: There is no end to the making of many books, and much study wearies the body. Ecl 1:8 - For with much wisdom comes much sorrow, and as knowledge grows, grief increases. Now how do you determine that what you have learned is enough? Where do you draw the line between seeking more knowledge and sticking/using to what you already know?
I’ve been researching about the importance of building some sort of “second brain”, to store information and thoughts. Have been using roam research for the past year but I feel kinda confused. Someone who has a great system for this?

#Synthesizing Intro Hey guys! I'm really excited about this new term 'Synthesizers'. It definitely coins what many of us love doing but don't know how to explain. We are at the beginning of this wave, and I believe that complex concepts such as longevity and preventive health, psychedelics, and web3 should be easily understood by everyone. I personally find the interception between these 3 concepts mind-blowing for the mere fact that they are expanding perspectives and re-creating outdated systems. Looking forward to learning from all of you, thanks Andrew for putting this together. ⚡
Thinking about doing something, and I'm curious, have you made any friends in synthesizer school? (my definition of a friend is someone you have reached out to in the DMs, and now you talk with them regularly)
Just listened to philosopher Alain De Botton on The Tim Ferriss Show from 2015 and he said, "...the great challenge of our own age is to take the good ideas and make them available to a wide public." Philosopher AND fortune teller?
