learn in public

Learning, writing, and working in public create new opportunities while facilitating quick feedback loops and building community. See for reference: every prolific content creator on the internet.

By publishing your incremental learnings and idea evolutions, you invite people to explore your web of thinking. With feedback and input from others, you gain the ability to refine ideas over time at a faster pace than if you were to sit on them by themselves. Additionally, public notes build authority and trust, which can both be leveraged throughout the entirety of your career.

It’s impossible to foresee what will come from ideas as they collide with one another, but the more writing and sharing you do, the more opportunities you create for yourself and others.

Opportunities to…

  • Explore ideas
  • Prompt thoughts
  • Share lessons
  • Teach skills
  • Build relationships
  • Inspire change

It’s good to Share ideas before they’re ready for a similar reason. To do this,digital gardens have been taking off as the latest way to connect ideas both for yourself and in collaboration with others. This site is an example of one.

Tools for managing information overload and improving how we think are on the rise, which has led to community developing around the tools and philosophy.

Personally I’m using this as my way of build a body of work. Like most things I do it’s a giant experiment. Time will tell how it’s received…
