Processing this idea of creating content

External benefits are the good consequence but to start creating, one must not expect much of it.

Start with internal benefits and try to get good at maintaining the velocity.

How to start creating content?

To make this less intimidating, here’s a 3 point model:

  1. Start writing content for yourself

  2. Start documenting solutions and ideas on a concept, you learn and might forget about later

  3. Deconstruct and edit a 4-minute read to help you get up to speed with confidence

Bonus and conclusion

Stick to a niche for more impact. The goal is to ensure you don’t lose grip of it.
