"I'm too busy" is a thinly veiled way of saying "that's not important". When I first heard this idea, it totally changed the way that I was thinking about being busy and prioritizing the things that are important. See if something's important, then you're going to make time for it. Now, this doesn't take away the responsibilities in life that make us busy, the things that we have to do. So how then do we make time for the things that we really want to do for the things that we deem important?
In this guide, I'm going to talk about building systems, and then show you several examples of how I use systems to be more efficient in my work.
How I make thumbnails in 30 seconds with this system
YouTube thumbnails are important. If no one clicks on your video, then no one will ever learn anything from it, and why even make it? So don't go with the default option. But you also can't spend hours making the perfect thumbnail. So what do you do? I've described before the importance of building a system around any of your activities to be more efficient. So in this video, I'm going to show you the system I've built around making thumbnails in 30 seconds.
My system to automatically import blog posts into Obsidian
I've made a lot of videos about obsidian, showing you how to create content, curate your notes and generate ideas. Obsidian is great for generating content, but sometimes I want to take my article and run it through Grammarly, or I'll make some fine-tune edits when I'm about to publish this on my website. So wouldn't it be nice then if I could take that final output and pipe it back into obsidian without having to manually transfer? I've described before the importance of building a system around any of your activities to be more efficient. In this video, I'm going to show you how I automatically transfer any article that I write on my blog, post it, and put that into my obsidian knowledge graph that I can then share with you all in the context of obsidian.
