    Why should it be either or the other ? If you want something you usually like it and the path that leads to it (you might get a lil' of course and tap your toes into unknown waters, but this also supports narrowing down what you really want), which means you are more engaged and can get better easier, which leads to you being more effective and developing yourself further. And everything you have learned through that process you can give onto others because you got a purpose that you developed through pursuing what you wanted and were interested in. A life you should live therefore for me is the life you really want. You probably won't wake up one day and know it but if you persist something will shine through - And thats what i'd aim for.

new video is out, I spent more time on editing quality sound effects and little details

    @Joao Oliveira @Benedek Santa People usually find their own style after they copied or got inspired by many other people. Synthesizing your own style over time is also part of the process.

◾ The classic quote 'your parents lived in Wisconsin get out of here' - @Corey Bennett Boardman ◾The ultimate accountability partner @Cotton Sam ' sure I'll travel 10 hours to come see you @Marvin Gramkow ' ◾ @Allan R. bringing Bones McCoy the skeleton out of the cupboard ◾ @Mia Cardenas @Fedor Shatukho Turmeric water ◾ Synthesiser Minecraft Livestream If you never come to the weekly calls I highly recommend. Valuable and fun. Great bunch of people here, lots of great memories already. Here's to many more. 🥂

When I heard that thought from Naval, it deeply resonated with me: People underestimate how much misery schedules bring to your life. Something clicked in my head, because I felt this way my entire life. Almost every business coach I see online or meet in real life have over-scheduled calendar. With a few exceptions. Maybe you too have seen a lot of content around how helpful it is to have a schedule. Naval also said: Creativity starts with an empty calendar and ends with a full one. Being a creative person and doing creative work for living, for me this conflict of productive schedule and creative freedom is what always caused and still causes a lot of stress. Over the years of working as a music producer I discovered that forcing myself to produce or mix a song when I don’t feel like it sometimes makes me waste an entire day and not finding a single beautiful note or chord. So if I have this opportunity in such days, I would rather have a long walk alone or with my family, do some journaling, watch some content or read something. If a deadline allows me to do it, of course. And a lot of times after this, closer to the evening my creative forces come back. As I launched my first online course and it’s still work in progress (half of the content is released, one more month of 6-day hard working workweeks left), I became deeply miserable because of the amount of work that I discovered is needed to be done. And there’s no escape without letting people down who paid me money and possibly ruining my reputation. I decided to learn a lesson or a few from this experience and in the future never do course launch the same way (even if that means that my family is gonna be broke for a few next months). You may ask, why did I launch the course in the first place? Why wouldn’t I continue to work as a music producer? The reasons are simple. In Russian speaking world top music producers earn $3000-5000 per month. I earned $2000-3000 before September, when I launched the course and earned more than $10000.

    Definitions: Something gets Produktiv if you can make something with it - creating a produkt of whatever you did. This doesn't have to be physical. Creativity is your mind wandering and making new connections. To most people produktivity is probably a job (just over broke) that makes you dull work - this is where I'd recommend questioning your actions. Is it money ? sure we all need to survive but once that is established i would recommend to make the time meaningful. Once you love something you can excel in it. If you use this creativity now to create something new you got both at the same time. Once done well & balanced you might see that your time will be used much more to your liking. You could see it like going multiplicative instead of additive. Of course then it could also in the wrong direction - like having a depression. In short i think. Time infused with meaning improves both factors because it let's you combine them. I'm probably not a good example at this (yet)

https://twitter.com/IAmAndrewKirby/status/1574728757210140672 If it IS true, then why don't you run a Cohort Based Course or something to help people in this community make $10k/m?

    @Wiktor Romanowicz If you play Minecraft on hardcore yes - u lose everything. But if you play on normal u respawn as well. And if you were prepared and didn't fuck up badly to fall in lava etc. the stuff u had gets dropped on the ground and you can recover it within a certain time. They are much closer than thought.

I wrote an essay to celebrate 1,000 members. I wrote another essay to celebrate 2,000 members. So to celebrate reaching 3,000, let's do something different... --- Tomorrow at 8AM PST... Let's all hop on a Minecraft server and work together to kill the Ender Dragon! EDIT: This challenge is over.

    Grit ! - I am currently reading "Grit by Angela Duckworth" and it is fascinating. Grit = Passion & Persistence. She talks about this being the most Important Factor in the many fields she Studied it. Be it Military, Sales or Spelling Bee's for Kids. Later on she will talk about how to develop it from the In- and Outside. "Our Potential is one thing, what we do with it is quite another.

I stumbled on this article today, and I think it is relevant here: YouTube, the Great Radicalizer (New York Times, 2018) Basically, the theory is, that in hopes of getting the users hooked, the YouTube recommendation engine constantly ups the stakes. This means, recommended videos become more and more "radical" the longer the auto-play function runs. This goes across all topics. The recommendations become more and more "extreme": Eat healthy >> Vegetarian >> Vegan Jogging >> Marathon >> Ultra-Marathon Make Money >> Become a Millionaire >> Become a Billionaire Donald Trump >> Fascism >> Holocaust Deniers Joe Biden >> Socialism >> Communism You get the idea. Psychologically it makes total sense and I agree with the author, that this can't be healthy, considering that the world is consuming a collective of one billion hours on YouTube per day. What do you think about this radicalization theory?

    It is true that a Big Business like Youtbe(Google/Alphabet) could take some actions towards this and regulate it, but then it would be like censorship. People are inherently more interested in connected novel ideas that take them down the rabit hole of knowledge. To me that is where we need to have a healthy self. A Self that can regulate & control as well as critically look at things, only then will the Big businesses and their algorithms follow and adjust. We can use this powerful tool to feed us valuable information that otherwise would be hard to obtain or we might not have known about. Extended Thoughts: We need those potential negative sides, erase them and erase the good within them. We shouldn't be naive in the face of danger, we should be Heroic. Lights cast Shadows. You should become a Monster - and then you should learn how to control it. -J.P. Edit: In Order to be able to think freely we have to risk being offended/not being in a safe space. Yeah also J.P. - Praphrased (Interview Cathy Newman) - What a man 😆

    85% Youtube, 5% YT Shorts, 3% Books, 7% Communities, - f me - i will change

I am hoping someone with experience in here can bring some clarity to this discussion. I have heard from some YouTubers to not share your YT videos on social media (ig, facebook) because it can lower your AVD because you have people who are just curious checking out your video quickly and then leaving. It could also cause you to gain subscribers who aren't your ideal viewer (again, confusing the algorithm). I have also heard from others that you should share your videos on ig stories and on other social accounts o drive traffic. Can @Andrew Kirby or anyone else in here shine some light on this?

    I'm just starting but my take is this. When just starting: Share anything you've got so people might give you valuable feedback. When you're big: You already got so much that you shared so if you keep the ball rolling try it out for yourself and test around I think on this on a spectrum - the more you got the more you can test and the smaller you are the more valuable the feedback is you get.

This is it: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgds8r9nRu4ssnojV5v3GOQ/featured There are two Videos currently that will launch at a later time and more will come in that timeframe. More will launch before the others premiere - these are: Channel trailer, A Cover and maybe some others. It's embarassing but they will stay public. Nevertheless I have had some sense of accomplishement when I saw it posted even thought there needs to be so much work to do. Since im Germany its 8:30 a.m. for me so I have much time to do this today. The contents are for now will be Comedy, Covers and some other stuff. Thanks for all your encourgement and Critiques until now and upcoming. Best Wishes Marvin

#Creativity comes from what you consume - This is why I like being in this community and started attending the accountability calls. Even though I'm still not nearly where I want to be and I have setbacks, I think it is a gift to be here and learn from all of you and the sources you provide and synthesize. You provide the Soil for me to thrive in my barren lands so that I may one day bring out seeds to flourish in the Gardens I've created.

So, the mission of my YouTube channel is getting more and more in focus in my brain, but I've felt the need to try to do a better job of articulating it, so this is my first attempt at posting a 'Mission Statement" of sorts. I already realize that it's a muddled, jumbled, incoherent mess, but I also know that if I waited for it to be good before posting, I'd never post anything. My current thought is, get this out there, then try to make a bunch of quick synthesizer hits in rapid succession, and then come back to this idea and try to lock down the focus a little better. Help me, my Obi-Wan Kenobis! You're my only hopes! What works? What is the most obvious thing to improve next? Does this even make any sense whatsoever? Sigh. Imposter syndrome, here I come. But, still. I'm feeling that by video number 100 or so, I'm probably going to start producing something compelling. Before I can get to that, however, I gotta produce videos 1 through 99. Thanks for your help! https://youtu.be/LNNidyV8LjM

    To your Post: "Once we start moving we can change direction." To the Video: I like it - it brings me back to thinking for myself and engaging with it. I'm unsure if most including me for who I am now would normaly engage in such activity with content like this. Nowadays it usually is fast paced and you get the answer spoon fed. But I really enjoyed it - Thank you this was a very Valueable insight. What i got from your Video after engaging with the thought is - Truth will survive and History will live on but we can take Action now to write our own Story. May he rest in peace 😥😋

It might be a rather silly question, but since I am quite highly introverted and socially awkward the idea of networking is like quantum physics to me. 😂 So my question is... Have you also struggled with something like that? Any practices or tips that made you overcome it? Or maybe how you embraced your weirdness and took advantage of it? Feel free to respond in DMs if you prefer.

    Some might see that I am struggling with it since I don't really have anyone close rn bcs I want to focus on myself but I have by no means figured "the right thing" out. The feeling of friends and having a significant others and a Network is beneficial and I'll also focus on that after developing myself and my business to a certain extend so I'm competent enough to feel confident enough for myself to progress. If you want to meet other people you'd need something in common - ideally more. If you go the path you want and expose yourself/be open & people will find and follow you as well as challenge - Any way you'll grow yourself & your network. As far as I'm concerned the concept of Introversion is quite missunderstood. For me someone is introverted when they get their energy from being alone and "recover" when alone - Vice versa with extroversion. This would mean that as an Introvert still are capable of Networking. Because it might be more draining for you you might have come to be more closed off. Which in turn lead to less experience which might make you feel Insecure about it. If that's the case you could look into what you really fear, Isolate it and Change over time. I would say be yourself but don't scare ppl. and you'll find the right people with which you can embrace yourself fully. Take my thoughts with a grain of salt if it serves you better.

My Hamza video got a 10.9% CTR with 90,000+ views. That's one of my highest CTRs ever. I'm not saying you should make more drama videos. But I am saying that if you make dramatical videos, you're more likely to get views.

    It's a Trend - like a wave - they come at different heights. Times and People may change with them, but the foundation will always stay. Riding a wave might be exciting but most underestimate the peace calm waters can have to much in my opinion. Like many things, balancing this well - each their own - is important. How we do things is a reflection of ourselves, which might tell us something about Indivduals and on a Societal level.

    I like it. The concept reminded me of Simon Sineks - Start with WHY. We need to have a purpose so people can start caring. Otherwise it might be dull content no matter how consistent it is produced. If we take the extra mile people will recognize that multifold. That positive feedbackloop might even give us the courge to try what we love more consistent. But I still would say even if it is our passion sometimes we gotta be disciplined enough to push through hardships a.k.a. fight the dragon and get the gold.

So recently researching procrastination, because I want to learn about it, as much as possible, because I also have a procrastination problem, and I want to help others fix it so I made what I call a procrastination tree the environment is: toxic people, news, limiting self-beliefs, and the content we consume this will determine who we are. So the root (cause) will be low self-worth, and because of this root, our tree will grow its branches: These will be the symptoms of our problem, fear of failure, perfectionism, and we will numb our brain with instant gratification and distraction so we can forget reality and a tree with these branches will result in a fruit called procrastination if we want to fix this tree, we have to put it in a different environment so it will make a different fruit

    And all is supported in our own garden of eden our comfort zone which bears all these delicious fruits of procrastination that keep us eating. The question is when do we eat the fruit that makes us concious about our own inadequacies and help us realize our own potential to find meaning by taking responsibility for this Life.

#Synthesizing Intro Hey everyone, I am Sachit!!! I love to consume growth and productivity content. But I have seen that most of my friends are not interested in these types of content. I want to bring more and more people together and create awareness about the importance of this type of content.

    Inspiring to see you get your second out. Keep it up!

Now it’s 23:56 for me (CET) on Sunday haha. I really pushed it. And am still hesitant to post it on here. (had to increase the time a bit)😅 However small it is & bad it may seem relatively - I'll take that step. My first step.😆 Today I got up & recorded myself taking the process of recording serious. This was quite special to me since I haven’t had really experience in front of a camera & decided I should first try it without the pressure of living up to my ideas & instead get the feelings out in a normal talk about said first Video & my thoughts about it. (Also it took me until today even though I did quite a few other things that were technically not nearly as important – wanna optimize that) I cut mby 30% which editing itself was quite interesting as well. I’m still considering if I want to make it public. What do you think? Also, would you guys sharing something like this with a vid consider synthesizing? – since I’m curating my experiences with the creation of this video? Or does it only a play for certain other areas for you? Personally, for me the first seems more logical. If you have any thoughts on any of this let me know.🤗 Thanks for being.

I uploaded my first video a day ahead of schedule....but it came at a cost. I had to sacrifice all of my natural urges and tendencies to improve it. I had to release my determination to stick to the original plan because quite simply, there would not be enough time to execute such an ambitious goal. I'm a recovering procrastinator who would frequently indulge in the sweet nectar of perfectionism. If I spot something I can do "better," I resolve to improve it. If I spot a speck of dust on the kitchen counter on the way to grab a drink of water, after flicking it away, I get the dust pan and brush out and attack the other dust dwellers I notice. An hour later and dehydrated, I remember what I entered the kitchen to do. The moral: remember your WHY and focus on it. In order to overcome my urge to relapse and achieve my goal of uploading my first video on my new channel, I had to keep it simple and remember that my only measure of success was to simply upload the video. Everything else would have been a bonus. And if you watch the video, you'll understand what I mean when I say: nothing I could have changed or added would have made it perfect anyway. Inspirations (read: shout outs) that helped me make my video: A video about embracing imperfection (Wabi Sabi) shared by @Benedek Santa An unscripted video uploaded for the sake of showing up by @Tintin Smith The unmade bed on @Andrew Kirby first video on his channel

    Genius! I watched all the perfect imperfections with awe. It felt like you talked to my inner self. Curious what comes next - keep it up.

So, I've been questioning myself why Synthesizing resonated with me as much as it did. The conclusion I came to is I want to have it all, but let me explain. I wanted to create something for a long time & I’m Interested in many subjects & therefore consume quite a lot of content. The knowledge I get from that just sits there even though I found it intriguing enough to consume it. Ideally, I would do something with it, but I felt something was off. It was my mindset, the feeling to not be good enough, that it has to be perfect. But there’s no need for my creations to be even good at first. The most important thing is starting & creating. There still was something in the back of my mind. If I want to make anything for other people it better be perfect or good enough right? That’s where Synthesizing comes in for me. I can create content without pressuring myself that it has to be good. I’m doing it for myself & If people like it – nice. The potential to grow & adapt from here is huge. The experiences from consuming & creating content (curating for myself & finding what works) will then help me synthesize on a higher level for others. At different places in time, I will be at different stages of this process with different topics & ideas. So, thinking in this Framework takes care of my worries(past) & wants (future) as well as encouraging me to work in the present towards that goal. Looks like a pretty clear picture to me now. What do you think of my adaptation of this concept ?

#Synthesizing Intro Hey there, I'm Marvin, almost 26 years old and have many fields of Interest (See Bio). Currently I'm slowly trying to get into e-commerce to build something for others of value & become finacially free by doing so. My Interests are vast and I've been consuming so much these past years but I've slowly realized myself that i just want & need to take action myself. My take on going about this is focusing more on the financial for now, but not neglecting the other interests. Then I saw the video of Andrew where he explains the concept of synthesizing which resonated deeply with me as well as the talk about freedom. Afterwards I Immediatly hopped onto this platform & signed up. I feel that this framework will do me really good, thank you so much Andrew. You're an inspiration & i will be deeply satisfied if i can share & give back by synthesizing like you.🤗

    @Juan Carlos Estremadoyro Fort That I already have some capacity to start because i've consumed so much. It showed me that there is a path i can walk on in the direction ob my goals & helped me push over the edge to experience more & slowly get wiser to be able to one day teach others from that experience.

One of our videos started getting picked up by external traffic for the wrong reasons. We semi-expected it from the title, but the analytics data is particularly interesting. A curious feature of peoples psychology, but it's so interesting to see that people were looking for a SPECIFIC thing, and as soon as we said in the video that we said that we would NOT be showing it, people leave sharply. Lessons: - This wasn't really meant to be a bait and switch, BUT it shows that to maintain viewers, you have to deliver what they think they're searching for. As Andrew says, this is why MrBeast does so well. Absolutely mad titles, but then actually delivers on them. - This didn't convert at ALL to subscribers, retained viewers or conversion. - There are some things you shouldn't sink to the level of posting for the sake of views.

Good Morning from Florida, my name is Brett and I'm a university student who's been interested in solving the problems of depression and anxiety through understanding exercise science and artistic expression with music and writing. https://soundcloud.app.goo.gl/NXvKLRDgbdsoaDu38 I'm wrote this at the precipice of my content creation journey where I still hope to be able to add to people's lives by telling my story of injury and recovery via live conversational debuts on twitch, and inspirational youtube videos detailing my path to healing the dis-ease that the modern world has stained me with…sitting and general sedentary lifestyle habits and what I do to counter the position of sitting or even standing at a desk. I also really like showcases of how music, particularly modern rap is made. Thanks so much to Andrew Kirby and the people that have put this together; I hope to arrive somewhere further than I've gone before with the tools to continue after getting more involved with this newness that is the Online Synthesizers group!

Guess I'll be a little vulnerable here and say that I uh...like anime. I'm not sure if this will make things weird for you guys since not everyone(in a general way, like when someone completely new and has never heard of it) has a good image in my hobby. As I stated in my profile I would like to start making content that touches people's hearts, but I also know that committing something like this won't be easy because to make something noticeable is to also stand out a bit. I do have skills in communication as I took part in competitions such as World Scholars Cup and MIDP, I'm not terrible in maths and I have a path towards science. But I always wanted to make creative content with deep stories in them, but coming from an asian family there are certain ideals instilled into me that always gave me doubt in pursueing this type of career. At times I would break down because I kept contemplating my future whether it be getting a sciency job or just being a poor artist. I really wanted to do it, but I also don't have the necessary disciplines and I am afraid I will hate what I create and why I had chosen this path in the first place, because college debt is no joke so i just froze. Because I couldn't do much that I can think off to earn a living from it. I really thought of taking up graphic design or something else but that logic side of me could almost never find a path for the creative childish me. But when I saw your video of you chasing what you thought was right, how it took you 3 years and from trial and error I really wanted to make my dream at least partly true. So I joined this group, and it is still hard for me to overcome the values I was raised with, to just suck up and give it a shot. But since I took the initiative to join, I might as well try to keep my chin up. Side note- my current level of skill in anatomy is just copy drawing, I can make a few original works but that will require a metric ton of references to make the quality good.
