Happiness is a heavy topic...
I realized last week that I wasn't actually happy. I think we sometimes confuse happiness in a moment with overarching happiness. Are you happy because you have XY and Z thing or are you taking it one level deeper? What are you doing that makes you happy? What could you be doing more of that would make you maybe a little bit happier?
- Trying to reinvent myself to "become" a creator.
- Focus on your strengths and use them to your advange in any field.
- Your skillset whether you're born with them or developed them through professional & personal endevors are what sets you apart. Use what you're good at!
- Translating your professional skills into the creator economy is a valuable asset. Look for holes and needs in the market to set yourself apart.
- Don't try to monetize skills you are still learning. Yes you can provide value to those a few steps behind, but you will suffer from imposter syndrome and will be less likely to succeed, at least that was my experience.
This week on Talks With SaraNoSocks
This week I sat down with Harry Harrington, actor by day, no coder by night. Harry is the Community Manager for LaunchMBA, founder and builder of The Cast Hub.
His insights on failure: "I have not got a job, and you're immediately down, you try and pick yourself up and you can't help it. It's really tough and then a better job comes along and you go for it and you get it. That does happen. That's a great lesson and one that can be applied to loads of things. And it really is that cliché that when one door closes, another one opens. And it's just true and something you have to constantly remind yourself about as a creative, as a freelancer. Maybe less "everything happens for a reason" and more, you have no control so just forget about it and let go."
