Sam Parr isn’t that big of a deal. But still, when he shared his screen it showed almost a thousand unread emails and hundreds of Twitter notifications. So this is what you’re competing with if you want to connect with people like him. It’s a noisy world out there.
I consider Nathan to be one of my mentors even though I’ve never talked to him.
💡 Why I write Profiles
I love reading books. But even more so I love studying how people a few steps ahead of me got to where they are now. After picking a new "target" I consume everything they've written, every podcast episode they appeared on, and spent hours researching what they actually do, not just what they say.
Then I write about the patterns, ideas, and lessons I've learned from that and share them here.
Some of the notes are still work-in-progress.
