Creativity

I’ve been living day by day doing repetitive tasks, which often led me to burnout and made me feel lethargic at the end of the day.

Knowing that there could be a solution to fix this problem, I have attempted to do many things after work, hoping that I’d find my own passion.

And at some point in that time period, I’ve stumbled upon many creative individuals who were making their living through their work on social media.

So at first, I was fascinated by how it may feel to live day in and day out only by doing the…

I decided not to write an article for today because I thought my mind was cluttered recently due to overwork. After writing yesterday’s article, I found out that I made many minor mistakes in my writing that I regretted. I kept saying to myself, “I should’ve proofread the article 100x times.. what an idiot”. I know that ranting on myself is not a good idea. But, having to write an article every day does make one crazy at some point.

I guess I was pushing myself too hard. No one told me that I had to do all those work…


Personal Branding

These days, when I go out to meet new people, I often see people asking for social media handle rather than contact numbers. Indeed, we are now in the age of social media, and we expect each other to have at least an Instagram account.

I like it the way it is now because I see what others are like just by looking into their feed. Well, I’m pretty sure that social media primarily expose the best parts of our lives, but it still gives a glimpse of what that person would be like without having to meet numerous times.

If you are an avid reader like me, then you may be a person who gets fascinated reading anything that you see and touch. The more we read, we get a better sense of what good writing is.

And that’s great because we get to understand how other people write and also find out ways in which we can write stories to compel our readers.

Writing is literally everywhere and anywhere we go. We see it on product labels, buildings, streets, phones, texts, and more.

It’s an essential form of communication that we share. …


Personal Development

Working at a prominent company gives numerous perks, including having a name card with the job title you can flash to new people you meet.

Similar to how people recognize a famous person, handing over your corporate name card gives immediate credentials. It’s a great feeling until you realize that you are just borrowing the name value of the corporation instead of having your own establishment.

I have seen many of my friends who had their name cards from these “well-known” companies that gave them a higher self-confidence-which is great-until they realized they were just another employee at the workplace.

As a writer on Medium, I’ve seen many new writers getting stuck with their writing once they start to gain momentum. When I first started, I felt the same way, and I occasionally do even now. I believed that writer’s block was a simple problem that anyone could get over until I had faced them myself. It’s hard to explain how it feels in words, but I surely couldn’t develop any ideas about what I wanted to write about. The more I couldn’t come up with an idea, the higher the stress it became. …


Personal Growth

The concept of time passing has always limited my action to do things that I enjoy because I always wanted to make the right decision not to regret later on in life.

And I believe many people are in similar situations. We all want to take a safe and secure pathway-which is great-however, in certain circumstances, it limits our true potential in what we can become.

Unfortunately, our society seems to have built this notion that we have to go on a particular path to become successful and happy, and it seems to be working for many people.

The idea…


Personal Development

We’ve come to a stage where people value individuals based on how much money they have. I know this for a fact because whenever I type in well-known individuals on Google, the automated search box also showed “[individual] net worth.” It’s amazing to see how these people have amassed a fortune that most of us won’t even earn in hundreds of years. The world of capitalism sometimes really amazes me because there seems to be no ceiling.

On the other hand, I was curious whether a person’s net worth always has to do with the amount of their asset.

I’ve…

I’m happy to see many new writers joining Medium for their writing journey. Finally, it seems like more people realize that a creative career (including writing) is the future for many of us. We’ve never had such platforms where it paid writers in the past, and I am grateful that I am also part of this journey in the creative economy.

There are so many platforms these days, making it harder for us to choose where to stick for the long term. Moreover, as a new platform emerges, it easily distracts us from creating a new profile and getting eager…


Personal Growth

We’ve read countless articles about how others have succeeded in their online business. But, whichever it is, most of us believe that it’s outdated once more people know how the system works.

It seems that we are always seeking to find the “next big thing” that would explode and help us become millionaires overnight.

And although there are cases where individuals can earn lots of money overnight, the chance of happening to all of us is close to zero.

When someone suggests to others about writing online, running an e-commerce store, selling on eBay, and finding gigs on Fiverr or…
