Life Designed: Self-Awareness, World Data & Humility

Hello good looking!
Last weekend I was working on a secret project that I’ll be revealing very soon. I’m motivated to build a niche site to help me retire from active freelancing and focus more on writing.
💰 Some of the best resources I’ve found and followed so far are Income School and their Project 24, Niche Site Project and Ecommerce CEO.
📩 If you’ve built a niche site or know good sources on how to do it, share them with me.
📊 Other than that, I started digging more into Google Analytics and found their Academy courses incredibly useful.
Welcome to another edition of Life Designed where I share the knowledge and resources to help you live better.
This week, the newsletter is supported by the good people at Away, the maker of awesome travel bags and suitcases.

🌟 Away
Away is a stylish lifestyle and travel brand. Being a minimalist world traveler myself, I appreciate well designed and functional products and Away does just that. This is the bag I’ve been traveling with for the last 5 months carrying my laptop, documents and most of the electronics.
Humanity suffers from a lack of self-awareness. Technology is advancing so quickly that humans can’t keep up. While it may seem that we are living in a world of terror and war, we are actually living in the most peaceful era in human history. And yet, we are surrounded by people going through the motions of life instead of working to wake up to their true life and true purpose.

To be intellectually humble doesn’t mean giving up on the ideas we love and believe in. It just means we need to be thoughtful in choosing our convictions, be open to adjusting them, seek out their flaws, and never stop being curious about why we believe what we believe. Again, that’s not easy.

Food for Thought
“The world always seems brighter when you’ve just made something that wasn’t there before.” – Neil Gaiman
“Wisdom is to knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it, and virtue is doing it.” – David Starr
“I don’t design clothes, I design dreams.” – Ralph Lauren
“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while.” – Steve Jobs
“The real issue is not talent as an independent element, but talent in relationship to will, desire, and persistence. Talent without these things vanishes and even modest talent with those characteristics grows.” – Milton Glaser
