Work in Progress - (Public Creativity, WNRS Game, Youtube Money Calculator, etc...)

Savvy Saturdays (8/7/21)

Savvy Idea: Accepting perfection is not possible, and knowing you’re always a “work in progress” allows for grace and provides peace.

We are all a work in progress.

The strengths. The weaknesses.

The well-formed responses. The stuttered mistakes.

The bursts of confidence. The prolonged moments of anxiety.

All that we are is imperfect.

And not being perfect is okay.

There’s something powerful about accepting who you are in the moment.

What you see is what you get.

By acknowledging the “work in progress”-ness of life, and being okay with our strengths and flaws, there can be a lot of peace.

Questions to ponder: 🤔

  • How can seeing life as a work in progress rather than perfection help you in life?

It doesn’t take much public creativity to stand out

Recently read this post, and it was very inspiring. It encourages doing just a little bit of work outside of work in order to stand out.

But the most important thing is doing stuff, not because it will get you hired, but do it because you want to:

If you’re going to do that stuff do it because you want to develop those skills and share with and learn from the world—don’t just do it because you think it’s a critical path to being hired.

Were Not Really Strangers

Got to play this game while at an entrepreneur’s home, and it was an amazing way to connect with many new people!

It really opened an opportunity to share stories and discuss topics most people wouldn’t talk about in normal conversation. Definitely a game I plan to get as an icebreaker and for hosting parties!


Youtube Money Calculator

An interesting find I found reviewed by Colin and Samir.

If you enter a Youtube channel, it also estimates what the YouTuber may earn!

Weekly Update

Personal life stuff… 🔔

Hello friends,

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

This past weekend, I got to close out of my church‘s Life Group in Anahuac, TX, and that was a blast! We enjoyed nature, ran away from bugs in nature (the spiders were huge), chilled next to a campfire, and enjoyed an amazing cabin.

One of my favorite parts was when we shared our reflections from the summer. We studied the Armor of God, and it was amazing seeing how we were challenged and equipped to fight against our fears and vices and find confidence in not our own ability, but what God provided us.

I definitely left that time teary-eyed and thankful to God for all He got to do for us all throughout summer. *sniffles

Church stuff aside, this week I got to spend quality time at a couple of friend’s house. Playing lots of Smash, late-night drives, and good talks makes me cherish moments where even though I’m nomadic, I get to grow in my bond with others.

Will be sad once I move to my new place, but grateful to always have people I know I can turn to.

Final thoughts, I’ve been taking more action in working on the plan for my podcast.

I’m in progress for figuring out my specific niche and my goals out of it! I’ve gotten to find software to create audio visualization, researched into Fiverr/Upwork on audio editors, and have a few name ideas for the podcast (Level Up Lee Podcast?).

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