How To Become A Producer And Add Value To This World

How To Become A Producer And Add Value To This World

Most people are just consumers. They consume content online, they spend most of their time reading blogs, listening to podcasts, or watching YouTube videos.

There are fewer people who produce things, make things happen, and try to have an impact on this world. People who produce are happier than people who just consume because they have the feeling of achievement, accomplishment by adding value to this world.

Have you ever thought about producing and creating?

I used to be just a consumer, always reading blogs and watching Youtube videos about things I’m passionate about, like self-improvement, productivity, and marketing. I learned a lot of things that helped me be a better person. I’m always thankful for those people who are always producing and adding value to other peoples’ lives.

Then, I decided that I wanted to start producing and adding some value to this world since I’m always learning, implementing, and improving. I wanted to share my experience with the world and hoped it might help someone else.

Before I tell you how to become a producer, let me tell you why most people don’t produce in the first place. I think there are two main reasons:

1. They think they are not good enough to produce.

No one is perfect. Everyone in this world started somewhere.

The hard truth is maybe your first few attempts will not be as good as you want them to be. You need accept that and try to get better — you will improve by practicing.

Here’s what Steve Jobs said about this:

“When you grow up you tend to get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money. That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it… Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.”

2. They are scared of putting their work out there.

If you want to make an impact in this world, you need to get out of your comfort zone. That’s how we grow.

How to become a producer

    If you’re not comfortable with putting your work out there, try to find mentors or friends that you trust. Get their feedback and help, then keep producing until you start feeling more comfortable with putting your work out there.

    Now, let’s talk about how you can become a producer.

    1. Choose a Topic

    The first step to becoming a producer is to choose a topic. This should be something you want to communicate to the world, something you’re passionate about. This will help you focus on where you want to have the most impact.

    If you are passionate about fitness, pick fitness as your topic. If you’re passionate about cooking, pick cooking as your topic. If you want to raise awareness about a cause, pick that cause as your topic.

    Action Item 1: Make a list of things that are important to you and pick one that will make the most impact.

    2. Choose Suitable Channels

    After you choose a topic, it’s time to choose a suitable channel to reach people. Thanks to the internet, these days you can be your own media company for almost nothing. You don’t have to have hundreds of thousands of dollars to reach a lot of people. You can reach millions of people for a few dollars.

    Advertising

    You can use tools like blogging, Youtube, social media, podcasting, and more to reach people. Using these channels will help you get your work out there and possibly reach thousands of people.

    If you want to raise awareness about something, you can blog and/or make YouTube videos. If you want to share photographs, maybe Instagram is a good channel for you.

    Think about what is the most suitable channel to deliver your productions.

    Action Item 2: Choose a channel (or a few) to start to distribute your work.

    3. Start Producing

    Decide on a time when you’re going to produce every week and make it part of your routine.

    A lot of people have goals and want to achieve them, but they never do so because they don’t build a routine and a system to get there.

    Advertising

    For example, tell yourself “I’ll write a blog post every Monday and Thursday at 4PM.” Then, make sure to block your time to do it.

    Action Item 3: Decide on exactly when are you going to produce and stick to the schedule.

    Over time, it’s going to become a habit and you’ll produce higher quality work in less time.

    We were created with the power of producing, creating, and adding value to this world. This is how we transform the world around us and make it a better place. Start becoming a producer and have a bigger impact on your world.

    How to Improve Memory and Boost Your Brainpower

    How to Improve Memory and Boost Your Brainpower

    Have you ever noticed that some people are able to effortlessly remember even the most mundane details and quickly comprehend new things? Well, you can too!

    To unlock the full potential of your brain, you need to keep it active and acute. Wasting time on your couch watching mindless television shows or scrolling through facebook is not going to help.

    Besides getting out flashcards, what can you do to help remember things better and learn new things more quickly? Check out these 10 effective ways on how to improve memory:

    1. Exercise and Get Your Body Moving

    Exercising doesn’t just exercise the body, it also helps to exercise your brain. Obesity and the myriad of diseases that eventually set in as a result of being overweight can cause serious harm to the brain.

    Furthermore, without regular exercise, plaque starts to build up in your arteries, and your blood vessels begin to lose the ability to effectively pump blood. Plaque buildup leads to heart attacks and it also reduces the amount of oxygen and nutrients that your blood carries to your brain. When the nutrients don’t make it there, the brain’s ability to function is compromised.

    To prevent this from happening, make sure you get moving every day. Even if it’s just a brisk walk, it’ll help you maintain and increase your mental acuity. Brisk walking, swimming and dancing are all excellent activities. Take a look at these 5 Ways to Find Time for Exercise.

    2. Eliminate Stressors and Seek Help If You’re Depressed

    Anything that causes you major stress, like anger or anxiety, will in time begin to eat away the parts of your brain that are responsible for memory. Amongst the most brain-damaging stressors is depression, which is actually often misdiagnosed a a memory problem since one of its primary symptoms is the inability to concentrate.

    If you can’t concentrate, then you might feel like you are constantly forgetting things. Depression increases the levels of cortisol in your bloodstream which elevates the cortisol levels in the brain. Doctors have found that increased cortisol diminishes certain areas of the brain, especially the hippocampus which is where short-term memories are stored.

    Prolonged depression can thus destroy your brain’s ability to remember anything new. Seek professional help to combat your depression – your brain will thank you.

    3. Get a Good Night’s Sleep and Take Naps

    Getting a consistent 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night will increase your memory. During sleep, the brain firms up memories of recently acquired information.

    Getting enough sleep will help you get through the full spectrum of nocturnal cycles that are essential to optimal brain and body functioning during the waking hours. Taking a nap throughout the day, especially after learning something new, can also help you to retain those memories as well as recharge your brain and keep it sharper longer.

    4. Feed Your Brain

    Fifty to sixty percent of the brain’s overall weight is pure fat, which is used to insulate its billions of nerve cells. The better insulated a cell is, the faster it can send messages and the quicker you will be thinking.

    This is precisely why parents are advised to feed their young children whole milk and to restrict dieting – their brains’ need fat to grow and work properly. Skimping on fats can be devastating even to the adult brain.

    Thus, eating foods that contain a healthy mix of fats is vital for long-term memory. Some excellent food choices include fish (especially anchovies, mackerel and wild salmon) and dark leafy green vegetables. Here’re more brain food choices: 12 Foods that Can Improve Your Brain Power

    Deep-fried foods obviously contain fat but their lack of nutritional value is not going to help your brain or your body, so think healthy foods and fats.

    5. Eat Breakfast and Make Sure It Includes an Egg

    According to Larry McCleary, M.D., author of  The Brain Trust Program, an egg is the ideal breakfast. Eggs contain B vitamins which help nerve cells to burn glucose, antioxidants that protect neurons against damage; and omega-3 fatty acids that keep nerve cells firing at optimal speed.

    Other foods to add to your breakfast include fruits, veggies and lean proteins. Avoid trans fats and high fructose corn syrup. Trans fats diminish the brain cells’ ability to communicate with each other and HFCS can actually shrink the brain by damaging cells.

    Having a healthy breakfast in the morning has been shown to improve performance throughout the day. If you’re too busy to have a healthy breakfast, this maybe just right for you: 33 Quick And Healthy Breakfasts For Busy Mornings

    6. Write it Down

    If there’s something you want to remember, writing it down can help.

    It may sound like a no-brainer, but do you really know why? Writing it down creates oxygenated blood flow to areas of your brain that a responsible for your memories and literally exercises those parts of it. Here’s How Writing Things Down Can Change Your Life.

    You can start a journal, write yourself emails or even start keeping a blog – all of these activities will help to improve your capacity to remember and memorize information.

    7. Listen to Music

    Research shows that certain types of music are very helpful in recalling memories. Information that is learned while listening to a particular song or collection can often be recalled by thinking of the song or “playing” it mentally. Songs and music can serve as cues for pulling up particular memories.

    8. Visual Concepts

    In order to remember things, many people need to visualize the information they are studying.

    Pay attention to photographers, charts and other graphics that might appear in your textbook; or if you’re not studying a book, try to pull up a mental image of what it is you are trying to remember. It might also help to draw your own charts or figures, or utilize colors and highlighters to group related ideas in your notes.

    Here, you can learn How to Become a Person Who Can Visualize Results.

    9. Teach Someone Else

    Reading material out loud has been shown to significantly improve memory of the material. Expanding further upon this idea is the fact that psychologists and educators have found that by having students teach new concepts to others, it helps to enhance understanding and recall.

    Teach new concepts and information to a friend or study partner, and you’ll find you remember the information a lot better.

    10. Do Crossword Puzzles, Read or Play Cards

    Studies have shown that doing crossword puzzles, read or play cards on a daily basis not only keep your brain active but also help to delay memory loss, especially in those who develop dementia.

    So pick up the daily newspaper and work on that crossword puzzle, read a book or enjoy a game of solitaire.

    Pick one to two of these tips first and start applying them to your everyday life. Very soon you’ll find yourself having better memories and a clearer head!
