100000 steps a week

Soooo… I’ve been pretty inactive over the past few years. That changed recently when some friends came to visit the city. I doubled, tripled, quadrupled, and sometimes even quintupled my average steps per day. On a typical day, I’d be lucky to get 5,000 steps in. But that particular week, I was averaging between 15K-25K steps a day. My feet were starting to hurt just a few days in, but I sucked it up andread more

writing 10 ideas down a day

Recently, I decided to try this new habit of writing 10 ideas a day. Sometimes, it appears to be more of a to-do list. Sometimes, it’s just random thoughts that occurred to me. The main advantage for me is that I can essentially braindump and see what I can get out of it. At first, I was simply writing 10 ideas down. But then, I started experimenting with taking action with these ideas too. Myread more

stop trying to provide value to other people, do this instead

Yep, I know, this is gonna sound a bit controversial. But, I do think some people (young folks especially) could use this advice. A lot of people in the personal development and entrepreneurial fields say something along the lines of: “Find a way to provide value.” However, a lot of people fail to realize that the value they think they’re offering to other people (especially when starting off) may not actually be of any valueread more

How to overcome boredom long-term

I’ve only experienced boredom for extended amount of time due to illness. And even then, I was able to find ways to resolve it. Boredom itself is not the issue, but how you deal with it. If you’re bored all the time, then it is a sign that something needs to be changed. Almost always, the best thing to do is to focus on having the experiences that you want to have. This is trickyread more

10000 experiments rule

This past month, I discovered the 10,000 experiments rule. Most of the things I do in my life are a series of experiments anyway, so this was perfect for me. It’d be a bit more intentional though, and would involve more documentation. If you don’t know, the 10,000 experiment rule is spinoff from the 10,000 hour rule. It’s about trying new ideas and seeing what leads from there. It’s based off the scientific method, whichread more

I am a bit of a perfectionist. (Okay, maybe a lot of a perfectionist.) The main reason I have been this way for years is because I think it is important to produce and share good quality work. If I know that I am capable of producing better content, then I want to be able to provide that. But sometimes as a perfectionist, working on a project for an extended period of time leads toread more

It’s pretty surprising, a lot of singers, producers, songwriters, rappers, music artists in general on YouTube are missing out on making passive income with their music. I certainly missed out for over 3 years of passive income with some old song covers, simply because I didn’t know what the heck I was doing. To start off, I am considered an independent artist. I am unsigned. I’ve never been part of a record label. I don’tread more

These are what I believe makes a good blogger, tips that I strive to follow in my own blog. 1) Proper writingI have no clue why, but I cringe when I see improper grammar/spelling, especially when it’s written by an adult. There are certain exceptions. If you’re using slang or improper writing that is common in your particular field or hobby, that makes sense. If you’re still in school, cool. But when you’re finished highread more

Quick disclaimer here, this entire blog post was written by me (Nessy), not by an AI (artificial intelligence), in case that’s what you’re looking for! 😀 I’m fascinated by the idea of using AI for content creation. It can be used for blogging, email, advertisement… Steve Pavlina even gave me the idea of potentially using AI to draft songs. I thought this could be useful, especially in finishing song drafts or in generating new ideas.read more

They say that consistency is the key to success. If you have a goal, a predictable way of achieving it is through breaking it down into steps and then consistently taking action to execute those steps. If you want to declutter a space, just choose an area to start with: the bed, the bookshelf, the desk, the floor, a drawer. Dedicate 15, 5, or even just 1 minute a day to toss trash/recyclables or putread more
