How Tiny Changes Gave Me A Great Calm
Often, the question is how to be calmer and more peaceful? Often, the answer is in the smallest, easiest changes we can make.
I'm a writer, blogger, data enthusiast, programmer, and self-taught graphics guy. Above all though, I'm a self-improvement junkie.
My Story: In 2015, a sticker collection I designed was accepted into Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. While that brought financial independence, it brought another challenge with it. My imposter syndrome destroyed my self-esteem. It was then that I found the best advice on a random Youtube commment: earn it backwards. At 19-years-old, overwhelmed, I decided to configure my life for the long-game. Over the past few years, I've built habits and systems, learned how to learn and think better, become fitter both physically and mentally, built a better lifestyle, and grown as a person.
With Nudge › How, I'm sharing all of that and more as I learn further. Let's grow towards a balanced life, together!
Every Wednesday, I send the free newsletter titled Midweek Nudge. The idea of Midweek Nudge is to introduce concepts I come across or think of or even realisations that nudge me into a better direction. I share them for everyone to see.
I recommend signing up, if your goal in life is balance. It's the most thoughtful newsletter on the internet. This is the most value-rich content I create all week!
I'm also continuously posting different kinds of content on the social media channels: Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
You'll also get a blog post every week on Saturday. Consider subscribing above to get the newsletter, check out the Schedule or keep scrolling for the recent blog posts!
When you’re searching for skills or virtues, start trying to experiment and then find what you are not, what values don’t align with you, what lifestyle does not fit your life, and so on. Then, slowly find where you land and who you are, by elimination.
Often the narrative for productivity focuses so much on getting things done, we often start to believe that everyone besides us manages to finish everything they pick up. That is far from the truth if you have a regular, balanced life. There will always be leftovers, and that is okay.
Survivorship Bias is a decision-making error when you try to follow in the footsteps of stories of those who survive instead of learning from the more numerous people who failed. Most people know this, but I believe there’s also an irony that’s associated with the idea’s general interpretation.
