I am a beginner. I am entering a new game about which I know nothing. I do not yet know how to move in this game. I see many other people playing in this game now. This game has gone on for many years prior to my arrival. I am a new recruit arriving here for the first time. I see value to me in learning to navigate in this domain. There is much for me to learn: The basic terminology The basic rules The basic moves of action The basic strategies While I am learning these things, I may feel various negative reactions: Overwhelmed at how much there is to learn Insecure that I do not know what to do Inadequate that I lack the capacity to do this Frustrated and discouraged that my progress is so slow Angry that I have been given insufficient guidance Anxious that I will never perform up to the expectations on which my career depends Embarrassed that everyone could see my mistakes But these moods are part of being a beginner. It does not serve my goal and ambition to dwell in them. Instead, If I make a mistake, I will ask what lesson does this teach. If I make a discovery, I will celebrate my aha! Moment. If I feel alone, I will remember that I have many friends ready to help. If I am stuck, I will ask for help from my teachers. Over time, I will make fewer mistakes. I will gain confidence in my abilities. I will need less guidance from my teachers and friends. I will gain familiarity with the game. I will be able to have intelligent conversations with others in the game. I will not cause breakdowns for promises that I lack the competence to keep. I have an ambition to become competent, perhaps even proficient or expert in this game. But for now, I am a beginner. – By Peter J. Denning, Distinguished Professor, US Naval Academy

I want to thank @Owen Sheasby for having me as a guest on his show. I totally enjoyed sharing and discussing how things are evolving. Owen sets himself apart as an interviewer by truly listening and allowing the conversation to naturally flow to the next logical topic, versus feeling of hard turns by getting in the "next question." I look forward to him growing his brand and his reach. I am grateful and honored to have been a guest. Make sure to check out his show, you will not be disappointed.

This means that you have to “surpass all others.” This means to outshine everybody else in your category. To deliver the best experience. To have the best interests at heart for your audience. But how do you do this? This is a mindset shift that I learned from the great Jay Abraham. Here are the 5 steps to do this: 1. You must value service above all else. Don't try to maximize the value of each transaction. Instead maximize the value you deliver. 2. Deliver an extraordinary experience. Over-deliver. Be remarkable. Be worth talking about. Give an extraordinary experience to those that interact with you. So do everything the other brands in your niche do to serve clients, and take it one step further. 3. Become the top source of education in your niche. Write. Speak. Do everything you can to communicate with your audience. Focus on being helpful. Point them toward opportunities. Provide solutions before they spend a cent with you. The more education you do, the better. 4. Be somebody. Look at who gets the most attention. Watch what they do. Take notes, learn from them, and apply them in your business and in your niche. Be a celebrity within your niche. Be the BIG fish in your SMALL pond. 5. Communicate often. Stay on top of your entire industry’s mind. Stay in front of your audience as much as possible. Do it with helpful and educational content. Don’t be a pest. Be ever-present.

Did you know that in most communities, only 1% are creators, 9% are contributors and 90% are lurkers? What does this mean for you? That just by creating content you'll be on the top 1% of your niche. Let this sink in: Just by creating content you're already in the 1%. Now you just need consistency. This is called the 1% Rule and was discovered by the bloggers Ben McConnell and Jackie Huba. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1%25_rule

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?

Here is a must watch for you: John Cleese on Creativity (37 min.) WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH: John Cleese of Monty Python fame, must be among the most creative minds that ever walked the planet. In this entertaining and insightful presentation to a management audience, he breaks down his own process and reflects on his methods. It's a hidden gem on YouTube, that you shouldn't miss. Have a great week, Carlos

Who has gotten help with outsourcing from Fiverr or another website? Would love to hear if anyone has strong recommendations for trusted people to help with video editing / production or otherwise in getting moving along with content creation. Also what about your favorite tools & must haves?

I came across this channel on YT called film booth. Great stuff we can probably all extract gold from and make our videos be seen more. Highly recommend. The only warning——I can’t seem to stop watching his videos…is it a mind meld Mr Spock?

@Juan Carlos Recalde made a post about the brutality of youtube. he is right. YT is brutal. I went down a rabbit hole of watching "how to make it on YT content" and I wrote down 10 pages of notes. There were a few top things. I share it with all of you in this video: https://www.loom.com/share/a91e0a7e5c1546338750ab87c8bc8d7f

Before starting Amazon, Jeff Bezos drew this idea out on a napkin about how to grow Amazon community. This became the operating system behind everything that they do, even their AWS business. Not that secret I suppose, but definitely worth staring at for a bit.

I have been following SuperEyePatch Wolf and his YT for more than a year, maybe two, and as Andrew Posted YT channel recommendations I thought I'd add this one video he made. It's divided into two parts: 1st - YouTube shillers and paid courses that promises whatever you can imagine - it's rather obvious but worth watching What REALLY struck me... and I'll be honest with you, it made me rethink my goals, my strategy, my life... is the 2nd part of the video and stories of people there. If you haven't got time for a 2h long video, just watch the 2nd part and take some time to digest it. AND... don't think about it as a discouragement or anything like that. I just wanted to share how brutal it can be, and devastating to some if you haven't got clear strategy and some alternatives if things go wrong. I hope you'll enjoy it. Also, share your thoughts after watching the video as I think it will be valuable to everyone here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3xSJuoUnN8

Gringo: The Dangerous Life of John McAfee (Documentary | 2016) WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH: John McAfee was a fascinating person. He was a very bright light, inventing the very first anti-virus software. But he also had some very dark shadows. This documentary documents his whole life, but focusses on the dark parts. And boy is it fascinating. It's quite unbelievable how the documentary maker could get access to this material and the interviews. You are not only close to the action ... you are in the middle of it. And like "Moby Doc", which I recommended before, it is a movie about the dark side of success. McAfee was a man who had it all. Wealth, success, fame. But it didn't fill the hole in his personality, so he continued on his journey. And after opening and closing a Yoga retreat and writing 5 books on enlightenment, he chose to explore the dark side. And he went all in. A cautionary tale.

I recently didn't post on my blog for 10 straight days. That was a rare feat since I like to be consistent. As an apology (as well as to publish a blog post after all that time) I wrote a completely honest account of what's been going. This is the most "me" I've gone in a blog post. A complete rundown of the events in an unconventional kid's life: https://arjunkhemani.com/2022/09/16/why-i-havent-posted-in-10-days-180/ I do think it's important to be fully transparent with your audience. Sooner than later, they're going to find out 😉

Discipline usually means doing the opposite of what you feel like doing. Hi there, a DTQ (Desktop Quote) is a slide I made for myself as a desktop background. I created my first DTQ back in 2012. As of today I made 345 of them. They run on all of my desktops as an endless slideshow. Inspiring me and reminding me of vital lessons. Enclosed you find the DTQ and a screenshot from one of my desktops, so you can see a quote in action. Enjoy and if you like it, then like this post. Thanks, Carlos

Hey everyone, One of the conclusions of Andrews recent group poll was that YouTube is without doubt the most popular platform where a lot of you consume content. I was wondering what your favourite video's and your favourite creators are. I also read in the comments that a lot of you consumed mostly long form content. I'm also really interested in that. What are some high quality 30 minutes or longer video's that you love? I can be any theme or genre. My interests know no boundaries. Thanks in advance for your interesting recommendations :)

Do you struggle with youtube addiction? I did too, this is the method that made me break free from 6h of daily youtube just follow these simple action steps: 1. Download Unhook in the settings only enable the comments and the subscriptions feed 2. Unfollow everyone 3. Open a notes app and write down every Youtuber that provides value to you, stick to 25-50 people 4. Download Youtube-shorts block this will only let you watch shorts in standard video format, no shorts mode 5. (Optional) Download Mindful internet use and add youtube and other distracting sites, use the 10s mode with 3 reps 6. Delete Youtube from your phone (you will only use it for productive procrastination and not for learning) ----------------------- How to use youtube in the right way: - if you need to watch a video search for it - if you want to watch videos, check your subscription feed and the watch later feed, in this case, you will limit yourself to that 1h of new video that is there, and you won't browse mindlessly, (this will help you with just watching enough videos and not having the urge to turn off the extension) BONUS: - Time-block your calendar and have clarity about what you need to do - Find a purpose and work on it and don't get caught up in the productive procrastination trap
