Sketchnote #69 – You Have Something People Would Pay For


It’s a visual note of my takeaways from the James Altucher Show Ep. 246 with Ramit Sethi.

I listened to the episode about ten days ago. When I heard James saying, “Doing something is so much more important than thinking and planning,” I got a sort of ‘epiphany’ and decided to self-publish an eBook.

I had the idea of self-publishing for months, but I never put it into action. I was like, “What the heck am I waiting for? Nothing happens until I do something.” I immediately started working on the idea, and one week later, my eBook became available for sale.

There are hundreds of things I could have done or should have done. I should have hired an editor; I could have promoted my book in advance; the book design could have been much better… The list goes on and on. But the most important thing was to get the self-publishing done and to see what happens. If the outcome is not good, I just need to figure out how to be better next time.

This episode helped me get out of my comfort zone. Thank you James & Ramit for inspiring many of us!
