I've written everyday for 327 days.

7 ways how writing everyday can change your life:
1/ Clarity of thinking

The more you write, the easier it gets to communicate your ideas.

When you start writing, you are:

• Putting your thoughts on paper
• Organizing it in a way that resonates with the reader
• Capturing ideas so your brain is free to think of new ideas
The better you get at organizing those ideas, the easier it gets for you to simplify your ideas and thinking.

The simple act of putting pen to paper can improve your mental health drastically.

Writing is 98% editing.

But most people do it wrong.

Here are 7 editing tips that will make your writing stand-out:
1) Wait at least 12-24 hours before editing

Seinfeld treats his writing self and editing self as two different people.

You have different priorities while doing both.

• While writing, your priority is to get words on paper
• While editing, your priority is to remove fluff
Another reason to edit later is to kill the recency bias.

You're going to love everything the moment you write something.

(Even stuff that's BS)

I don't sign NDAs.

You shouldn't either.

🧵Here are 4 reasons why 👇

Here comes a compelling partner.

The company looks solid. The founders are strong. Their existing product looks great.

But then come those 5 little words.

"Will you sign an NDA?"

At this stage, the answer is always "no".

Here's why:
1/ 🤫 You shouldn't be sharing confidential information this early. 🤫

It's just too early in our relationship for us to be sharing business secrets.

You don't open a first date with a non-disparagement agreement.

You chat about your interests and see if there's a match.

Want to be a successful founder in 2023?

Try being dumber.

Disagree? Bring that big brain and follow along. 👇👇👇
We all know them: that friend that's super successful.

Absolutely killing it. Constantly improving.

There's just one problem:

They're dumb as rocks.
"How do they do it?" we ask ourselves. "I'm so much smarter than them!"

But what if they're not successful despite their intelligence, but because of it?

1/ Outliner (Community plugin)

Wish there was an outliner?

For those coming from outliners like Roam and Logseq, this may convince you to give Obsidian a try.

Go to Settings/ Community plugins/ Browse/ and search for "Outliner."
2/ Command Palette

Are you always forgetting how to do "that thing"?

Like "how do I Highlight text"? 🤣

Thankful, Obsidian does have a toolbar, it's just hidden.

Use Ctrl/Cmd P to bring up a list of all the things you can do to your notes.

It also shows the shortcut!

DAY 14/30

I've spent 7 days reading Niklas Luhmann Estate's docs on his Zettlekasten, (so you don't have to.) 😅

Here are 5 surprising truths I found.

All images are properties of
1. 90,000 notes sounds more impressive than it looks.

This is his Zettelkasten, the German word for "slip-box". All notes were organized into 24 drawers and 3 filing trays (top left).

Not impressed? I don't blame you.

But the concept behind it might change your mind...
2/ His Zettelkasten's main purpose was to generate surprise.

He focused on organizing and constructing his notes, so he can "talk" to it. Every part of this process has its purpose. His notes are meant to lead him down paths he wasn't thinking about.

This was done in 3 parts...

I have a love-hate relationship with podcasts.

I love the variety and the convenience.

I struggle with taking notes from them still. (I started experimenting with @snipd_app a few days ago 🤞)

Here are 7 of the podcasts I've been enjoying lately: 🧵👇

@snipd_app 1. The Danny Miranda Podcast

This one is a very recent addition to my feed.

So far, I've been enjoying the variety of guests and the casual but deep conversations @heydannymiranda has with them.
@snipd_app @heydannymiranda 2. Hidden Brain

This has been a favourite of mine for years.

@HiddenBrain is very consistent with the quality of the episodes they produce.

It's always great to learn about the interesting and unexpected ways our brains work.

I'm often juggling multiple projects at a time.

It feels natural between work, friends, classes, hobbies, etc.

But sometimes, working on too many things at once can slow us down.

Here are 4 benefits to limiting your work-in-progress: 🧵👇

#ship30for30 #tweet100
1. Improved focus

When you limit your work in progress, you can focus.

You can have increased access to flow.

You can allocate all your cognitive resources to one goal.

Plus, it just feels good to focus.

Having too many things on the go can leave us feeling scattered.
2. Less context switching

It produces waste each time you context switch.

You have to load a different project into your working memory...

...and then again once you switch back.

Every switch takes time and energy, which is a tax on your productivity.

Julia Cameron offers a daily practice called Morning Pages.

This practice is 3 pages of stream-of-consciousness journaling done first thing in the morning.

Here are 5 benefits you'll get from adopting this practice: 🧵👇

#ship30for30 #tweet100
1. Increased awareness

It can be hard to focus when small things are tugging on your attention.

Sometimes, we aren't even aware of the things calling us.

Morning Pages can help bring those things into our awareness.

Once we're aware, we regain our power to react.
2. Processing of emotions

When we don't process our emotions, they tend to stick around and increase in intensity.

These emotions can drive us to do unhelpful things.

With Morning Pages, we can start to process those emotions.

We can sit with them and feel them through.

What about art?
Art is characterised by:

• Creative expression

In my @obsdmd, I keep track of my 12 favourite problems using tags.

Whenever I create a new source note, I tag it to associate it with at least one of my 12 favourite problems.

@obsdmd 1. It can provide a sense of progress

Most people know to take advantage of their employer's 401k match, since it's free money.

You need to know more.

Here are 5 simple ways to hack your 401k:
• Find out if your employer allows in-service distributions

You may not need to switch jobs to rollover your 401k. If you're unhappy with your company's investment options, consider an in-service distribution into a rollover IRA.

Maintain control over your investing options!
• Use your 401k to enable a backdoor Roth IRA contribution

There are limits to how much you can contribute to a Roth IRA.

But, if you have a 401k that allows roll-ins, you can roll your IRA into your 401k and then execute a backdoor Roth IRA transaction.

No more limits!

The better your notes, the easier it is to manage your boss. Seriously.

Managing up takes planning, communication, relationship building & integrity.

Here are 3 ways to unlock that superpower by simply building a repository of tagged daily notes: 🧵👇🏻 #Ship30for30

1️⃣ Use Daily Pages to Plan Your Day, Week, Month, Quarter, and Year

Daily Pages ground your thinking to time-based buckets (rather than just project folders).

Reflect on yesterday and plan for today and tomorrow.

When you reflect and plan, you can focus on what you need from your boss to meet your goals.

When you show your boss you've got the wheel, they won't actually need specifics about little tasks.

That unlocks autonomy, agency, and a higher plane of thinking about your work.
