So you’ve been convinced enough to become a creator and have been creating content and thriving to build a business out of it. Building an audience and bringing 1000 true fans to pay you for a lifetime are amazing concepts, but it isn’t as easy as it sounds.
First things first, these points are valid, particularly for creator-influencers and not just influencers. It isn’t for every creator. If you provide value that aims to change your consumer’s life, go ahead.
Learning is our superpower. By learning and studying the correct information in the right way, we can unlock our incredible potential.
Just as we can learn new skills and ideas, we can also compound or leverage our learning ability by learning more effectively.
Suppose we are going to maximize our potential improvement. In that case, we will need to push ourselves to the limits of our capabilities and employ helpful high leverage life hacks such as Deliberate Practice, the Pomodoro Technique, Modes of Awareness, Immersion Reading, and the Ebbinghaus Forgetting Curve.

Apple doesn’t communicate features, they mention benefits for the straightforward reason that this makes people feel something. You would possibly remember once they launched the primary iPod, I would not say it had been anything groundbreaking. If all they had done was to only say — Look we have got a replacement mp3 player. It’s got five gigabytes of storage.
Think about that line and once you believe it you’re probably not thinking any more dull boxes and storage capacities. …
So, a company culture refers to the interactions between people and the beliefs people have in common. More simply, what’s it like when you’re working together with these people in this company, and what are the shared ideas that you have.
Here are some perspectives on company culture, so what’s it like when working together with your colleagues at the company?
Is it exciting? Are you motivated?
What’s the working schedule like is it a strict 9:00 to 5:00, or can the employees have autonomy and work on their own time?

Parkinson’s Law is best known by the adage that “work expands or contracts to fill the time available for its completion,” It was initially developed to explain the expansion of bureaucracy overtime when it was first referenced in an essay published in The Economist in 1955.
Have you ever scheduled time to complete an important piece of work or hired workers to complete a job in a set amount of time?
You are probably very well aware of how the work did seem to expand to fill the time available for its completion.

All designers want to move off the ladder, but spoiler alert, it isn’t a defined checklist.
Realistically, the difference between a junior designer and a middleweight designer and a senior designer is that one of the main differences is experience, and moving up the ladder takes a little bit of time, and it’s not something you can do overnight one to two years.
It is something that can take roughly five to ten years to make your way up the ladder to reach a senior level.
But let’s say you’re ready to have a conversation with your boss, and you…
Some of the wisest and most successful people admit to using them. Whether they are considered Principles by someone like Ray Dalio, referred to as frameworks by someone like James Clear, or referring to them here, as Mental Models by someone like billionaire Charlie Munger, who incidentally did much to popularize the term itself.
Whatever we decide to call them, we cannot deny their usefulness for helping to understand the world better. Understanding the world better is what it’s all about.

I have been writing for more than a year now and have emailed over 40 newsletters in that time. This is the quickest guide you can find. This is way easier than it would’ve been last year.

I’ve been fortunate to discuss this with my senior & mentor at my internship. Here is how it went:
There’s no industry standard, but for me, every business at its core solves the problem. That’s why people come to you for business because you offer the best solution they’re looking for, and as a designer, that’s your job to understand.
You need to understand what the company is working for or the client that approached you. What problem they solve them, and you’ll only ever really know that by talking to the users.
The company might think that the…
Social Media Websites are designed to be addictive.
What makes them so?
Let’s look at some practices for UI design with specific examples from the top social media websites.
Now, we have to remember what the goal of these landing pages is. In this case, it’s to get someone to download and use the Instagram app.
This is a straightforward and minimal design and straightforward. On the left, we have a mockup of the app on an iPhone and Android device. What’s interesting about this is, this is a clever way to not exclude anyone depending on the device they…
