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.

    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.

    The Best Way to Create a Vision for the Life You Want

    The Best Way to Create a Vision for the Life You Want

    Creating a vision for your life might seem like a frivolous, fantastical waste of time, but it’s not: creating a compelling vision of the life you want is actually one of the most effective strategies for achieving the life of your dreams. Perhaps the best way to look at the concept of a life vision is as a compass to help guide you to take the best actions and make the right choices that help propel you toward your best life.

    your vision of where or who you want to be is the greatest asset you have

      Why You Need a Vision

      Experts and life success stories support the idea that with a vision in mind, you are more likely to succeed far beyond what you could otherwise achieve without a clear vision. Think of crafting your life vision as mapping a path to your personal and professional dreams. Life satisfaction and personal happiness are within reach. The harsh reality is that if you don’t develop your own vision, you’ll allow other people and circumstances to direct the course of your life.

      How to Create Your Life Vision

      Don’t expect a clear and well-defined vision overnight—envisioning your life and determining the course you will follow requires time, and reflection. You need to cultivate vision and perspective, and you also need to apply logic and planning for the practical application of your vision. Your best vision blossoms from your dreams, hopes, and aspirations. It will resonate with your values and ideals, and will generate energy and enthusiasm to help strengthen your commitment to explore the possibilities of your life.

      What Do You Want?

      The question sounds deceptively simple, but it’s often the most difficult to answer. Allowing yourself to explore your deepest desires can be very frightening. You may also not think you have the time to consider something as fanciful as what you want out of life, but it’s important to remind yourself that a life of fulfillment does not usually happen by chance, but by design.

      It’s helpful to ask some thought-provoking questions to help you discover the possibilities of what you want out of life. Consider every aspect of your life, personal and professional, tangible and intangible. Contemplate all the important areas, family and friends, career and success, health and quality of life, spiritual connection and personal growth, and don’t forget about fun and enjoyment.

      Some tips to guide you:

      • Remember to ask why you want certain things
      • Think about what you want, not on what you don’t want.
      • Give yourself permission to dream.
      • Be creative. Consider ideas that you never thought possible.
      • Focus on your wishes, not what others expect of you.

      Some questions to start your exploration:

      • What really matters to you in life? Not what should matter, what does matter.
      • What would you like to have more of in your life?
      • Set aside money for a moment; what do you want in your career?
      • What are your secret passions and dreams?
      • What would bring more joy and happiness into your life?
      • What do you want your relationships to be like?
      • What qualities would you like to develop?
      • What are your values? What issues do you care about?
      • What are your talents? What’s special about you?
      • What would you most like to accomplish?
      • What would legacy would you like to leave behind?

      It may be helpful to write your thoughts down in a journal or creative vision board if you’re the creative type. Add your own questions, and ask others what they want out of life. Relax and make this exercise fun. You may want to set your answers aside for a while and come back to them later to see if any have changed or if you have anything to add.

      What Would Your Best Life Look Like?

      Describe your ideal life in detail. Allow yourself to dream and imagine, and create a vivid picture. If you can’t visualize a picture, focus on how your best life would feel. If you find it difficult to envision your life 20 or 30 years from now, start with five years—even a few years into the future will give you a place to start. What you see may surprise you. Set aside preconceived notions. This is your chance to dream and fantasize.

      A few prompts to get you started:

      • What will you have accomplished already?
      • How will you feel about yourself?
      • What kind of people are in your life? How do you feel about them?
      • What does your ideal day look like?
      • Where are you? Where do you live? Think specifics, what city, state, or country, type of community, house or an apartment, style and atmosphere.
      • What would you be doing?
      • Are you with another person, a group of people, or are you by yourself?
      • How are you dressed?
      • What’s your state of mind? Happy or sad? Contented or frustrated?
      • What does your physical body look like? How do you feel about that?
      • Does your best life make you smile and make your heart sing? If it doesn’t, dig deeper, dream bigger.

      It’s important to focus on the result, or at least a way-point in your life. Don’t think about the process for getting there yet—that’s the next stepGive yourself permission to revisit this vision every day, even if only for a few minutes. Keep your vision alive and in the front of your mind.

      Plan Backwards

      It may sound counter-intuitive to plan backwards rather than forwards, but when you’re planning your life from the end result, it’s often more useful to consider the last step and work your way back to the first. This is actually a valuable and practical strategy for making your vision a reality.

      • What’s the last thing that would’ve had to happen to achieve your best life?
      • What’s the most important choice you would’ve had to make?
      • What would you have needed to learn along the way?
      • What important actions would you have had to take?
      • What beliefs would you have needed to change?
      • What habits or behaviors would you have had to cultivate?
      • What type of support would you have had to enlist?
      • How long will it have taken you to realize your best life?
      • What steps or milestones would you have needed to reach along the way?

      Now it’s time to think about your first step, and the next step after that. Ponder the gap between where you are now and where you want to be in the future. It may seem impossible, but it’s quite achievable if you take it step-by-step.

      It’s important to revisit this vision from time to time. Don’t be surprised if your answers to the questions, your technicolor vision, and the resulting plans change. That can actually be a very good thing; as you change in unforeseeable ways, the best life you envision will change as well. For now, it’s important to use the process, create your vision, and take the first step towards making that vision a reality.
