PLUS - The best definition of the economy | Wisdom Letter #207
India’s Chandrayan 3 made it to the dark side of the moon. It became the first country in the world to do so.
Here’s why it matters -
(it’s not what you think it is)
What is the economy?
Found the best definition of the economy this week -
Generalist vs Specialist
When you work a 9-5 job, you’re forced to be a specialist - a master of one trade.
When you work for yourself, you’re forced to be a generalist - a jack of all trades.
Most humans are born generalists. That’s why they feel stifled in their jobs.
Like I used to feel -
Start a small internet business on the side just for your generalist creative expression.
Don't fight who YOU are.
Want to kick start a side hustle?
Build a business on your own terms?
Quit the boring 9-5 and make a living on your own ?
I would love to invite you to my tiny community - Indie Masterminds.
It’s a place where like minded folks come together to learn and grow together.
We’re all building independent, micro businesses that can sustain our lifestyles and fulfil our life goals.

Simple Productivity Advice
Most of productivity advice is just silly little hacks.
Understand what's the right thing to do
Understand why your brain won't do it automatically( coz it's lazy)
Create conditions so that the brain is forced to overcome this laziness.
That's it 🤷♂️
(Here’s an example I came up with)
What will you pick?
10 hours a week to earn $60,000
70 hours a week to earn $140,000
I’ll pick the first option always.
Well, that’s only possible when you own a piece of business. No job would let you work only 10 hours a week. 🤷♂️
