I’ve recently been struggling with Gary Vee’s concept of Document Don’t Create because it can be boring sometimes, and I’m not sure if it’s bringing enough value to those who watch/listen. In this episode, I share my current thoughts on documenting vs. creating, how I want to bring people value now, how to create content when you’re not an expert or authority, and some potential ways in which I plan to “create” content in the future. Lots of love guys :)
I’m leaving this without context, as this is just a moment that will go down one of the most important moments of my life - the moment I received this gift. Non material is about the only hint I dropped here. In the future, this video will make much more sense as it’ll be explained more as time goes on. Christmas 2017 is going down in legendary status.
In the final Reflections that I recorded in 2017, I reflect from the location of where I work in the morning: my bed. I apologize for the pauses. This may be something to get used to going forward, or not. Time will tell how I feel about it.
On Jan 1st, 2018 (at 11:48pm) I talked about how my insanely large 2017 review went, where I felt I grew the most (aka health), and how I planned on approaching 2018. This is pretty all over the place, in a good way.
I don’t mess around here. Short and intense, with a prediction in stone. I want so badly to make massive impact on the world, and to do that it starts with bringing people unfathomable amounts of value, one by one. I know I will do this long term.
My laptop broke right after Christmas, and I recorded my thoughts as it was happening in real time. Because it’s almost 3 months ago and I made some predictions in the original clip, I wanted to share my current perspectives after on how it’s played out so far, and how I’ve made it a huge win for me. This episode is a little bit different. Let me know what you think :)
Many times I get caught up in trying to be great, and I forget that I must be a rookie first in order to be great. It hurts the ego, but fuck the ego. Here's my experience from December, in my first stages of learning React/Redux on my own.
Sometimes I find myself irritated that I don’t currently have the financial resources to allocate to things like having a daily vlog, spending money on facebook ads or instagram influencers. The reality is, another wave’s coming. Today, I expand more on my thoughts around this, playing long term, etc.
This episode, I talk about a newer meditation app by Kevin Rose and the Oak team, as well as talk a little bit about my thoughts around meditation. This app is solid. I'm enjoying it. It's available for free in the iOS appstore, under "Oak Meditation". Check it out :)
I'm very fascinated with a mental framework called first principles thinking which is famously used by Elon Musk and other great men throughout history. Aristotle once defined first principles as “The first basis from which a thing is known.” Basically, it's about boiling things down to their most fundamental truths, to where it cannot be debated. Back in November, I discovered a cool methodology to make it easier use first principles thinking, as it's very mentally taxing. It helps me cut...
10 episodes in. Feels pretty good. A step in the right direction. Simultaneously, I know this is just the beginning. Thank you for joining me on this journey. You listening/watching means so much to me :) This time, I eat too many cacao nibs and reflect on the week, while my mind is bouncing off the walls from the caffeine. Watch/listen to this while on a caffeine high for best results.
In this video I talk about a simple realization I had when struggling with joshmoxey.com - I forgot to use to-do lists. I talk about why they're so helpful, the power of having something in front of your eyes, keeping score and other random stuff.
Getting closer and closer to being up to date on these. Still a little weird for me to be putting these out as they're as raw as it gets. Definitely some gems in this episode, especially in the lessons section. Hope you enjoy :) P.S. I am aware of the buzz in the background, but there's little I can do. The quality will be much better in the future, please just be patient with me :)
I derive such a pleasure from creating the little things. Creating something from nothing will never get old. Period. Here I talk about an incredibly simple feature, but I never took the time to create.
Even though there's only been a handful of episodes, this is probably my favourite I've aired. It was such a struggle of a workout. In this episode I get pretty vulnerable, cover my "post-game" thoughts, and reflect on why I'm super proud of the determination & the "do it anyway" mindset I've developed.
I am aware that this may not be interesting to most, but I know that in the net score this series will be absolute gold. It's a way of highlighting what's going on in my world, sharing what I'm working on, learning, etc. on a week to week basis and documenting my truth so the world can see my beginnings.
