3 Unexpected Outcomes From Writing Atomic Essays 30 Days In A Row

Ship 30

Cleaning up my content consumption

The content you consume molds how your brain ingests information.

The content I was consuming had a huge influence on my ability to create. Over the past 30 days I've streamlined when, how, and what content I consume. This expanded my knowledge on the topics I'm passionate about, and eliminated all of the junk taking over my feed.

1 hour of scrolling Twitter turned into 1 hour of solifying my knowledge by writing.

Ideas blossomed through meditation, research, and writing

Prior to starting my Ship 30 journey, I thought I would run out of things to write about.

Throughout the course, I developed this simple framework which allows ideas to pop out of thin air -

Meditation: For me that's walking, car rides, playing an instrument

Research: Find answers either you or your readers have from previous writings or meditation

Writing: The act of writing will help to solidify your learning, and unlock new questions to iterate on for your next piece of content

Write to unlock ideas, not the reverse.

Engaging is just as important as creating

You hit the publish button on your essay... now what?

The best way to grow yourself as a writer is to encourage and support others on this journey together! Writing with fellow shippers on a social platform provides access to a community of people all working towards the same goal. Consistency, practicing their writing habit, finding their niche.

Find a community that resonates with you, and engage in meaningful ways to help boost your peers.

Ship 30 for 30 was more than an online writing course. It was a course on mental modals - feeding your brain the right content, effortlessly generating ideas, and uplifting the community you're a part of.
