I’ve decided to take another crack at Patreon. One of the perks of becoming a Renaissance Member is receiving a downloadable action guide from each episode of the podcast (including past episodes).

This is something I personally put together and spend a lot of time on. I distill the essential lessons taught by my guest, featuring key insights, challenges, and practical steps we can take and experiment within our own lives.

If you aren’t familiar with Patreon, It is a membership platform that provides helps creators and artists—like myself—earn a monthly income by providing rewards and perks to their subscribers. This is a cheap yet valuable way to support my work.

Another perk for being a patron (at the Renaissance Savant tier) is you get to know who I’m interviewing in advance so that patron members can provide me questions you want me to ask the guest.

A Few Favorite Takeaways:

“I get inspired by Ideas. But I’ve also noticed that I get really, really inspired by serving others.”

“You can’t actually pull yourself up by your bootstraps. Right? Like that’s an old slang saying, but ultimately you have to be lifted by those around you. Meaning you can’t just act like it’s only you in this world and you’re going to get some passive income somehow and just think about nothing but yourself.”

“My happiest creative friends I know are the ones who balance making money with making their art.”

On Learning Something New:

  1. Find a good book and focus.
  2. “Then my next bit of advice for learning something new is to set up a or find multiple teaching sources, like say like a video course and three different books. I found the hard way that different perspectives really help you see something clearly.” “Have different teachers teach you the same thing, meaning, [from] different sources.”
  3. And then lastly, deliberate practice where You understand that learning something means you’re going to have to not just sit and read about it, but, but do it.

Q: Is this really helping me or hurting me?

Last Two:

  1. A question to ask yourself:
    1. “Find the opposite point of view of anything that you currently think is true. Just pick something that you think of as true right now. And find a way to think about the opposite of it. (and good luck doing that with politics.)”
