It has been 31 weeks since I started #WeeklyAction. Every open, every click, every comment - gave me the energy to keep going and I would like to share my journey with you.
As long as at least one of you continues to receive value, I will continue making the newsletter, but for the next six months, I have decided to set a singular goal: 1 000 subscribers within one month & 3 000 by January, and for that - I need your help.
⚡ The Ask
One of you (Thanks, Mo), asked me if I have a referral program, so he can track which of his friends had joined this newsletter. This intrigued me, so I built one.
If you find any value at all in the newsletter, I hope you will be willing to share it with those who you think might benefit as well. Click below to get your personal invitation link.
Hopefully, you will spread the news just out of love, but for fun and giggles, I added some rewards, including my very own Playstation 4.
In Action #0015, I suggested writing and sharing a life update with your close network. Today, my close network is you, so here goes.
Key Events Since April 14th:
Participated in Wing Tchun Martial Arts Camp, hurt my finger while playing basketball on a break.
Studied and passed an exam for my ICC certification (Sailing).
Made a lot of changes to our home, and built my home studio.
Got accepted into Accelerate Estonia.
Started giving paid talks & workshops again.
Key Learnings & Insights Since April 14th:
If you can’t choose which idea to start with (entrepreneurship) or what to do (life), then you should ‘court’ the ideas, and explore them with full commitment for a period of time. This is why I am going to ‘court’ the newsletter concept for the next six months.
Should you generate a thought/idea that excites you, act upon it without delay, for the energy for it will only decrease with the passage of time.
Your biggest weakness is most likely your biggest strength.
If you want things to change, you have to make PHYSICAL changes to your life and your routine.
Once you have chosen a path, stick to it for a pre-determined amount of time.
