How to maximize creativity
Graeme Crawley is one of my favorite visual artists on Twitter.
This week he asked his followers on what’s the best way to maximize creativity.
And he got some interesting answers, do read this thread.
There are 8 ways, and I try to follow every one of them -

I asked, "What's the best way to maximize creativity?"

Here are 8 ways to be more creative:
Curating Audio🎧
This week I discovered a very interesting project.
It’s about curating audio content.
So it’s creator Aravind, listens to his favorite podcast, clips out the best parts and adds his commentary on it.
Fascinating, I’ve been doing something like this for written articles for a while. But never seen anyone do it for audio content.
Love it -
Aravind Balla
@ayushtweetshere I'm curating best audio content I listen to, which I call it a mixtape.

Curious to know if anyone else has tried this
If you have some interesting projects that you are working on, please do reach out to me. I want to check them out and feature in this newsletter🤗
Newsletters to Read📰

Do check it out, I don’t miss these NLs every week -
Looking Back👀
My best Tweets of the week, there are 2 Tweets I want to highlight -
Ayush 🙏
Wrong way to look at a Twitter -

"I have 2000 followers

There's an auditorium full of people waiting to listen to me

Let me start shouting from the stage"

Right way -

"I got a tiny spot in a mall with a footfall of 2000

Let me try to add value to the passers by"
Yes, many people think that a high follower count means you have a dedicated audience waiting on your every Tweet.
But that’s simply not true.
People are busy and distracted when they are on Twitter, if they follow you its just means they found some Tweet of yours mildly interesting.
So it’s best to have a humble attitude with your follower count.
The next Tweet I want to talk about is -
Ayush 🙏
If you work a full time job, know this -

You monthly salary isn't your net worth.

It's a CAP on how much you can earn in a month

Your employer has locked in -

- All Your monetizable skills
- Your Time
- Your Energy

They have an unfair monopoly on your income


This one evoked some interesting reactions from people.
It’s an unconventional way to look at out corporate careers, but its a way that can help us move beyond it.
I know it helped me a lot to eventually quit my full time job and go solo.
