Pull Out the Root Cause - (Bonus Topics: Mgram Personality Test, Sleekbio, etc...)

Savvy Saturdays (7/10/21)

Savvy Idea: Focus on pulling out the root cause of problems, and you will fix a majority of problems you face.

Recently I was talking to an entrepreneur about problem-solving, and we talked about how important it is to solve the root problems.

Solving problems seems like a straightforward answer to success, but what’s most effective in removing problems is erasing what causes these problems to arise.

It’s like trying to remove weeds.

You don’t pull out weeds and assume that you don’t have any more plants infecting the lawn.

Not only will the weeds grow back, but they’ll bring all their friends along with them.

In order to get rid of the weeds, you have to pull them out of their roots.

In the same way, when focusing on behavior change or problem-solving, it’s important to focus on not what’s visible.

The problems that are shown may just be symptoms of a deeper issue.

Infiltrate the roots and remove them

By focusing on the deeper issue, you can remove all the other problems.

Questions to ponder: 🤔

  • What “problems” do you face in life?

  • Which ones are “weeds” and which ones are “roots?

Mgram Personality Test #my8traits

A friend shared with me a personality test called mgram which analyzes your personality and carefully selects from 60 types of personality hashtags 8 hashtags that properly express you best.

It’s very interesting as it helps give insight into personality traits and the positives and negatives behind them. You can check out the test here!


Sleekbio (simple bio link)

Recently I set up a sleekbio for my own simple link bio to showcase everything I have to offer!

I like it as it’s sleek *winky face, and very simple to use. I use it not only for my social media, but also for my email signature and the end of my newsletter.

Weekly Update

Personal life stuff… 🔔

Hello friends,

Greetings from Austin! 👋 Let’s jump right in!

This past week was wild.

I got to go to Pensacola, FL with some friends, and I can’t remember a time where I let go and relaxed. Definitely enjoyed every moment I got to spend with them, and grow in relationship, and taking many memories back to reminisce on.

I recorded a lot of the trip, in order to give myself an excuse to learn to video editing on DaVinci Resolve 17. Hoping that these skills will carry over to creating YouTube Videos more frequently. (*fingers crossed🤞)

I’ve definitely picked up new sayings (“that’s wild”) and skills (like posting more frequently on personal social media) and this trip influenced a lot of my perspective on how I interact with different friends, and how I want to live out my life.

We’ll see how all that goes.

That aside, I got inspired after meeting a couple of cool people this past week, and I’m back to the drawing board on a couple of things I want to do:

Podcasting and Coaching

I’m not sure what it’ll look like but definitely can’t wait to execute more with a business foundation in place.

Anyways, here are several pictures from this past week: 📷

Thanks for following along as always. Hopefully, all I share helps!

With that, stay safe 😷, keep it savvy 😎, and I’ll see y’all in the next update 😊
