Today I finished mapping my new personal growth framework, a mind-map summarizing the links between my professional aspirations and my daily habits. I use it as a reminder: why and how I work. Here is a brief description of the structure:

- Vision (what I should strive for): Mastery

- Pillars of growth and resulting habits:

I. Indie Entrepreneurship

  1. Deep Work
  2. Experimental Mindset: be a prolific creator and attach yourself to problems, not ideas or products
  3. Always Be Sharing: write at least 200 words a day
  4. Constant Learner: read offline, try out new technologies, slow travel
  5. Kaizen: one commit a day

II. Health is a prerequisite

  1. Diet: flexitarian diet
  2. Cultivate Compassion: meet new cultures through travels, get involved in local or glocal communities, nurture meaningful interactions by consuming less social media to leave room for one-on-ones
  3. Sleep: wake up with the sun and sleep for at least 8 hours a day
  4. Exercise: strength and stretching routine
  5. Practice Mindfulness: walking, biking, or meditation routine

III. Ramen Profitability

  1. Reduce expenses: by simple living and traveling
  2. Increase income: money is a byproduct of mastery, all I can do is to diversify my sources of income

One vision, three pillars, no goals, micro-habits only. Let's see how far I can go over the next 12 months.

    @basilesamel - This is an awesome piece.. Very clear vision you have.

    Could you explain these two lines?

    -"be a prolific creator and attach yourself to problems, not ideas or products"

    - flexitarian diet

    I am eager to see updates on this post as well. And keep updating your techniques so we can learn from your journey.

    @seunoyebode - see this.

      Create lots of products solving actual problems (books, apps, blogs etc.), and avoid falling in love with ideas and products. Ideas and products are entrepreneur traps because it's the market/your customers that tells you what you should work on (problems), not you blindly believing in a product because you made it.

      Flexitarian diet is mostly a vegetarian diet, but sometimes I have to eat meat (when I'm in a family gathering for example) so it's not 100% vegetarian.

      @basilesamel - Interesting. I may be suffering from being in love with the product I made. Need to consider the angle you are talking about.

      So what problem where you focusing on when you made this site?

      Btw, I have scheduled a post about you for tomorrow. That was before seeing this vision. I will need to add to the post before I publish.

    @basilesamel Very nice. I wish we had more than 24 hours in a day. What do you do when you feel a lack of energy and motivation?
