Sunday Brief - Issue #6

Sunday Brief - Issue #6

Hey,
Welcome back to Sunday Brief, this is issue 6 of my weekly email newsletter for creative professionals where I share my thoughts, inspiration, life lessons and interesting reads from that week.
This week marks the start of one of the largest national holidays here in Cambodia - Water Festival! So I’m taking the time to recharge, reset, refine and goal set for the coming month.
I also got around to redesigning and developing my new personal website, so make sure to check it out if you want! It’s still a V1, but keeping it as minimal as possible this time 😀

What I’m thinking about
So I thought it would be fitting to revisit one of the simplest forms of staying productive and that is goal setting.
I think it was in The 4 Hour Work Week, Tim Ferris calls goal setting a dreamline but it’s essentially just a fancy way of defining goals by framing them with a cost attached to them to make them feel more tangible. For more info you can check out the blog post over on the Tim Ferris blog.

For me, I use Notion to plan out my Roadmap, but don’t underestimate the untapped potential of something as simple as once a month, once a week, once a day setting some goals in a tangible way. For more details on how I set my goals up in Notion you read one of my very first blog posts and YouTube videos.

Resources for creative
As a web designer / developer working on a creative agency, I’m always on the lookout for new tools to a) keep me more productive and b) help me do my job better. Check out some of my favorite tried and tested tools:
  • Notion - My all time favorite note taking/productivity app
  • Digital Ocean - My go-to tool for spinning up blogs, websites and more
  • Webflow - The tool I used most often at work to Build better business websites, faster. Without coding
  • Landbot.io - Used both personally and professionally, Landbot makes it intuitive and easy to make both simple and complex chat bot experiences. The best part is, it’s a no-code tool.
P.S: Some of these links are affiliate links that I get a kickback from 😋
Did you enjoy this issue?
