My Linked Notes
When I look around at others who have given me great inspiration in my life, there is one common denominator: they are all great writers. From people I've been following for years like [[Tim Ferris]], [[Tim Urban]],and [[Ben Hardy]] to those I've stumbled onto more recently like [[David Perrell]] and [[Salman Ansari]], they all write extremely well and preach the importance of consistent writing. Those folks and many others are why I'm starting my Daily Notes publishing. Starting today, I am going to publish new notes every day indefinitely. These notes are low pressure, low edited, low quality, but high quantity. Many days, I write these notes in Roam anyway, so I'm just going to share them as well. Even on days when I don't think anyone could care less about what I wrote or I think the quality of the writing is terrible, I will share. The idea behind this is that making my notes public will encourage me to improve my self-expression to others, as well as make more deep connections with new people who may somehow find themselves on my site. Maybe you will like some of them. If not, my future-self will be happy I took this on either way.
- [[Salman Ansari]] Recent find with great newsletter. Great motivation to write
My twitter bio is the result of thinking I needed a niche. [[Salman Ansari]] connected me with [[Paul Lecrone]] on twitter this week because we are both big fans of [[Huxley]]. Paul's first message mentioned that he is not familiar with python, hinting that my bio was a bit of an obstacle to overcome to get to our shared interests. It's not that dramatic, but my current bio is narrow. In the next week, I want to add more interests in my twitter bio to help find connections with more people who may come across my profile.
In the latest edition of the Quick Brown Fox, [[Salman Ansari]] wrote a great little fable - [[The Farmer's Secret]]. He describes the years long quest of a young man to discover the secrets of an old, successful farmer, only to discover the farmer didn't have any secrets to begin with. The farmer simply worked hard and deeply cared for his craft.
One last thing
