Key Ideas

Put things into the world

Your work is your greatest marketing tool. So make things and put them into the world.

The more you make, the higher its quality, and the more willing you are to share it with the world, the more people will discover and spread the word about you.

Help people

Selfish doesn’t spread.

Not only is it the right thing to do, but it will get you noticed by the people you help and the people they know.

Overdeliver

Nobody tells anybody else about the person who did a “good enough” job on the work they hired them to do.

Respond to everyone

If someone reaches out, respond to them.

That doesn't mean you have to have an answer to every question you get asked or that you have to agree to every request you receive. You just have to respond.

When people mention you

Acknowledge everyone who mentions you.

Many people and companies want to better market themselves while they simultaneously ignore their existing audience.

Share what you learn

When you share your journey, it makes people want to come along for the ride.

You may know something, but there are millions of people who haven’t learned it yet and would love to.

Teach what you know

Your knowledge is an asset that becomes infinitely more valuable when you share it.

Teaching not only attracts an appreciative crowd and creates opportunities, but it also unlocks a deeper understanding of your subject matter for you in the process.

Seven universal plots
Seven universal plots

There are only seven plots that are so fundamental to the way we tell stories that every storyteller uses one of them: Overcoming Monsters, Rags to Riches, The Quest, Voyage and Return Rebirth,...

Economic history

Looking for a few universal plot patterns reveals things fundamental to how all people think, which are likely to be repeated in the future and relevant to your own situation. This idea also applies to how the economy works.

Economic history can seem complicated because it's part of politics, psychology, sociology, criminology, biology, military, technology, education, finance, etc. But within all that complexity is a lot of similarities.

The lens to look through
  • People seem to want the same economic things – security, power, admiration, fulfillment.
  • They tend to use the same tactics to acquire those things - work, risk, incentives, persuasion, theft, control.
  • They tend to fall for the same flaws pursuing those things - overconfidence, pessimism, underestimating how fast things can change, etc.

Although economic history may seem complicated, there are only a small number of broad story plots throughout the world and throughout time.
