Six months ago, I changed my job. And since then, my content creation career has never been grimmer.
When you make such changes, you may struggle to balance your new commitments with content creation. And you may expect it some way. But I wasn’t. So my experience was even worse.
I had plenty of free time to follow my dreams and ambitions where I worked before. So I was highly productive. My content was high quality. And I even started working with a few clients.
But this new job completely switched my perspective. And even if I earn much more money, I still want to become a content creator.
The morning is the most productive part of the day because you are well-rested and fresh. So it would be a shame to miss this opportunity.
And if you create content one hour a day for five days, that’s already five hours of work per week. It is easily doable, and it doesn’t require too much commitment.
However, when I started waking up earlier, I couldn’t be productive at all.
But after three months of experiments, I’ve learned a few things:
To-do lists are awesome.
But a to-do list means nothing if you don’t have the time to finish everything you have wanted. So instead of a to-do list, start with a free-time list.
If the morning is the most productive part of the day, the evening is the opposite.
After more than 8 hours of work, working on creating content is the hardest thing you could do.
But if you are serious about content creation, you must find a way.
The weight of comparison sometimes crushes even the most passionate people.
Competition online is tough. You must demonstrate that you are the best to gain an audience. And the pressure often becomes unbearable.
But competing with full-time content creators would be like waking up one day and running the New Your marathon. You could do it. Nobody will stop you. But there’s no chance you will ever beat your competition.
If you aim for smaller goals instead, your overall mood will improve. You will stop pressuring yourself so much. And your productivity will increase too.
So seek small achievements and keep yourself motivated throughout the process. And you will easily balance a 9–5 job with a successful content creation career.
You can’t produce one piece of content per day or more as other creators do. You come from different places. And you cannot challenge them with quantity, even if it is more efficient nowadays.
But quality is still relevant.
So focus on quality if you don’t have enough free time to publish daily.
When I changed my job, I feared I had to leave content creation. And the fear was getting under my skin in the first months.
But when I finally got the time to write again, I understood I could never leave content creation. It fills me with joy and satisfaction. And it makes me happy.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
