Happy Friday (And National Good Samaritan Day) everyone!
Preface: Welcome to another weekly round-up post from our growing community of bloggers, writers, vloggers, podcasters, and other fellow creatives. To be straight to the point, each and every week we hand-pick five top posts from a pool of the highest voted user-submitted/created posts in the community and include them in this weekly round-up blog post, along with the newsletter for all of our e-mail subscribers. As per our submission rules, posts shared can not be re-posts, or older than 1 month (31 days), meaning that all of the following are fresh and recent! Tune in every week and you will gradually become a better and more insightful creative over time!
David Robson, author of “The Intelligence Trap” and writer at the BBC, starts us off this week with his report about new research focusing on the massive advantages of possessing passion and a “growth mindset” on the long road to a successful creative career, and earns the top spot on the podium!
Next up, we get to Ayodeji Awosika, self-improvement author and speaker, who reminds us that we’re in it for the long run in our creative journeys. It can take five, or even more YEARS of hustling and grinding to build enough momentum to reach the “promised land”, but unfortunately most burn out or quit way too early.
Capturing third and the final spot is Naomi Pham who shares her top tips and advice on how to regularly pump out content at lightning speed, using an easy-to-follow and doable approach that actually yields results.
Just below, Sergey Faldin, prolific Medium writer, shares his views on the importance and building blocks of superb storytelling, and how to do it properly in different formats such as written, audio, and video.
And finally we arrive at Josh from Money Life Wax blog, who describes his 30-month blogging journey, documents his successes, mistakes, and fails, and details out all the things he would have done differently had he had today’s knowledge when he was just getting started.
