🧠Personal productivity as an entrepreneur
Wisdom Letter #151
So last week I posted a tweet where I described some of my personal productivity tips. Some basic rules I’ve set for myself that allow me to do my best as a creative entrepreneur -
I think these rules will help you with any kind of creative work that you do. Otherwise, it’s easy to fall into the trap of "busy" work and get overwhelmed by it all.
I understand that I'm privileged and that I'm able to do this because I don't have a full-time 9-5 job.
But I think even if you do have a job, you should set up productivity systems and rules that work for you the best.
Do you have any such systems for yourself? How do you do your best work?
Do hit reply and let me know.
💡Update on Indie Masterminds
The July edition of Indie Masterminds is coming to an end next week.
Of the 12 people who are there in the groups - 5 have a full-time jobs, 3 are freelancers and consultants, and 4 are full-time solopreneurs.
It’s such a healthy mix.
Because people are able to give advice and guide each other in the next step of their journey.
Apart from feedback and accountability, the program has also become a great source of support and camaraderie among the members.
This is something I had not envisioned when I started.
Anyways this gives me even more energy and hopes as I launch the August edition of the Indie Masterminds.
I think you will find the program useful if you want to quit your job and work for yourself one day.
we discuss everything in our hot seat calls and in the Slack community - from broad strategies to niche tactics that you will need in this journey.
You can find out how it works on the link below.
And you can also get a 25% early bird discount from here 👇
I’m adding every product I’ve made as a bonus in this program. So you will get 8 products for free if you join 😅

I think that’s pure BS.
This is a fantastic thread about how this rhetoric has been repeated for so many years with every generation (All the way back to 1894)
It’s so fascinating that up until 1902 we had no idea that Andromeda was a galaxy. This is what science magazines thought of it -
Great post by James Clear about stories from people who’ve found building habits useful.
We’re big into habits.
That’s how we function best. We’ve learned so much from James’ book that we made a toolkit to apply the best habits in our life.
More than 100 people have benefited from the toolkit so far.

If you’re looking for non-fiction books to read, Mark Manson has this fantastic video about his favorite non-fiction books.
He summarizes 14 of them here -
“If you find something that is true in more than one field, you’ve probably uncovered something particularly important. The more fields it shows up in, the more likely it is to be a fundamental and recurring driver of how the world works.”
Fantastic article from Morgan Housel. You can call them a series of rules or even mental models around how common patterns emerge in seemingly disparate fields.
