Things we should normalize: 1. Being extremely happy when things are going well 2. Being transparent with your personal finances 3. Sharing wildly ambitious public goals 4. Never uttering the words "quick call" when reaching out to someone

90% of perfectionism is an ego problem. You assume there are millions of people refreshing their browser waiting for you to hit publish and scour your every word. Instead, embrace the fact that no one will read what you write in the beginning and practice hitting publish.

Every podcast should have a “start here” episode. • Mention it in every intro • Link it in the show notes • Highlight your best segments Let first-time listeners get a feel for your content. If your “start here” resonates with them, chances are they binge more episodes.

21st-century superpower: Being allergic to "Onces." Saying "Once I ... then I'll ..." implies the time isn't right now, but will be in the future. But if I've learned anything in the last 18 months, it's the time will *never* be right to start something. So get started.

The best part of writing consistently is when people ask you questions, your mind jumps to ideas you've already written about. And since you've written about it, you've thought through and can explain the idea clearly and concisely. This is 100% why smart people sound smart.

I'm convinced the most important mindset shift you can make in your 20s is to operate from abundance, not scarcity. This mindset shift unlocks: • Healthy risk-taking • The ability to say no • Positive-sum thinking • Gratitude as a byproduct • Letting go of the nonessential

In the digital age, there is no excuse to invest time writing something long-form that the market isn't begging for. The best writers are treating their writing like a startup, getting validation and feedback on their ideas from the bottom-up. Here's the Lean Writing breakdown:

My go-to question for people ahead of me on a path I want to take: What is something people spend too much time on that I should skip entirely? This works better than "what should I focus on?" because most people don't know what led to their success, but they know what didn't.

In summary: • Start with a massive 2-year test brain dump • Grab the 2-3 buckets that resonated most with you • Tailor the specificity to match your level of credibility • Use the 4A framework to generate ideas • Pick 3 ideas, then get going and iterate from there
