Full stack human

How to become all-round

Dear [subscriber:firstname | default:reader],
This newsletter I am going to explain the idea of becoming an all-round human. What do I mean by that?

I mean that you should have a stack of skills and tools in different domains of life that can leverage each other.
If for example you know how to manage your time, you will probably have more time to exercise.

You should not see each skill as something individual but you should look at its relationship with other skills.

What will your stack consist of?

Personal mastery and productivity skills and tools
This will make you able to get more direction in your life and become successful. Skills you could develop:
  • Know your life purpose and have a personal mission statement.
  • Know how to properly use a calendar.
  • Know the skills of time-management.
  • Know how to learn more and better.
  • Know how to be less distracted on social media.
Some (digital) tools you could use:
  • A to-do list
  • A read later app
  • A good note taking software (like Evernote)
  • Personal knowledge based apps like Obsedian
Business skills and tools
This will make you able to function better in a team and delegate tasks more efficiently if necessary.
Skills you could develop:
  • Know the business mission statement.
  • Know how to manage your team.
  • Know how to communicate and work together.
  • Know how to tell stories and sell.
Some (digital) tools you could use:
  • Team management tools like Monday.
  • Presentation tools like PowerPoint.
  • Data analysis tools like Excel.
  • Communication tools like Slack.
Emotional and stress management skills and tools
This will make you able to deload from a heavy work week and spend some time to relax and charge your energy levels.
Skills you could develop:
  • Know relaxation techniques like deep breathing and meditation.
  • Know when to ask for help.
  • Learn how to be less reactive in life.
  • Learn how to love exercise.
Some (digital) tools you could use:
  • Meditation apps like headspace.
  • Exercise tools like a simple pedometer.
  • Have a good family doctor where you can talk to! 😉
If you learn how to manage these different skills, you will become more well-round. More well-round to succeed in life!

Ways to start a business
The first answer on this question on Quora has actually given a pretty good overview of how to start a business.
In short he states that everything starts with idea generation. Some people even claim you should be able to generate at least 10 ideas per day. Then you need to find out your audience and divide your idea in 4 categories:
  1. The Passion Projects: When people do something that they truly enjoy like starting a baking club.
  2. The Exclusive content: When you solve a problem for other people.
  3. The Penny Reach: When you reach for the bigger audience by charging little.
  4. Top of the Pyramid: When you sell high-end products.
Before you start to execute you need to become like the person you want to sell to. You need to develop your persona. Do the exact same things as this person would do. Go to the same blogs, websites, forums, Facebook groups etc. Make sure you know exactly who you want to be selling to.

Then you can start to execute.
