Everybody wants to get fancy and sophisticated before they even *try* to do the basics.

If you think you're too good or too smart for the fundamentals, you're choosing failure before you even begin.

I think that this morning I'm gonna do a quick live video tour of @indyhall@twitter.com's new clubhouse, followed by a lil q&a.

Should I do it on our IG live? Somewhere else?

Was that my first time hearing "Dont Stop Believing" in a bar since March 2020?

Every 3-6 months I look at our options. Every time, the only reason we stay on Teachable is b/c I didn’t want to prioritize re-uploading everything.

But if they’re gonna force my hand, I may as well upload it somewhere else.

Holy shit @teachable@twitter.com are you kidding me!?

Barely 2 weeks notice to re-upload all of our course videos to the platform, or else they stop working for our students!?

What do I pay you thousands of dollars a year for. Guess we’re finally moving to a new platform.

we're so conditioned to optimize for quick wins and big wins that we forget how small, consistent, and compounding wins almost seem "magical" in hindsight.

If you're hurting, remember that the opposite of loneliness & hurt is community.

Doing things together rigs the game in our favor.

It's why I have JFDI tattooed on my forearm. It's not "just fucking do everything" it's a reminder to do what matters and do it together.

Ask questions, understand the problems and issues, and keep convos with fellow helpers in good faith.

Pay attention to who you fight for and fight alongside. Pick battles wisely and play the long game.

The hurt is real.

Just remember how hurt people hurt people.

Look for the helpers, and help them.

Entreporn can come from anywhere.

Most people think of the first two gates of this flowchart, cuz there's so much hype in the VC funded side, but also among Indie Hackers.

It's the latter three gates that are just as bad or worse cuz they're SNEAKY.
