It’s been an intense, but eventful week! Google Day 2020, Singapore was successfully executed and I’m proud to have led and organize it together with my awesome team as it’s the first virtual campus outreach event held over YouTube live (due to Covid-19)!
When running an event, I’m usually running super high on adrenaline - I end up crashing from exhaustion at night and don’t really recover till the day after. Seriously forgot how intense it could get! It’s day 2, and I’m still in the midst of recovering 🙊
On top of that, it’s the second week into the ’Building A Second Brain
’ course I’m enrolled in, so I feel like my brain has running at 100km/h. I’m just trying to absorb and apply whatever I have learnt at this incredible pace!
I wanted to share one interesting exercise I had to do in the course this week - and that was to think about, and share my 12 Favourite Problems.
Everyone is different, and therefore your 12 favourite problems will be unique to you.
You should have a yearning, a deep desire to answer these questions - most likely something something that is causing some sort of ‘pain’. The answers are not really within reach. The questions are philosophical and never really end. They just evolve and go on a deeper level!
I realized that my problems were things that I constantly thought about, but never really had the time to pen down.
Here are my 12 Favourite Problems:
- How can I shrink my closet down to just the clothes I truly need?
- How can I effortlessly create original content, and stay consistent in churning out content for my website, newsletter and YouTube
- How can I continue to keep healthy and fit?
- How can I learn to deep dive into a topic or hobby without losing interest, and giving up when I hit a plateau?
- How can I find my passion and niche areas for YouTube?
- How can I start being more confident, charismatic and inspiring?
- How can I start developing a stronger perspective on issues?
- How can I start a successful business that will take off while working full time?
- How can I give back more to society?
- How can I ensure that I spend enough time with family?
- How can I earn more money to ensure that my partner and I live a comfortable life?
- How can I live a more intentional life?
I actually had more, but I shrunk it down to this final list. I really enjoyed writing this list down because it gave me so much direction and clarity. It affirmed my interests, the steps and direction I have taken to (unknowingly) solve these problems.
This is a list I will refer to every 6 months, just to see whether things have changed up!
What are your 12 favourite problems? Put aside 5-10 minutes of your time to try this, and share them with me! Let me know if this was as fulfilling as it was for me!
Till next week!
