My journey into these productivity notions spans a little bit over 9 months, yes, I’m a novice.

And I never claimed anything differently, that is why I would highly recommend you embark on your own personal journey. Discover new lessons and share it with the public so that other people benefit from it. Building your audience is all about reaching people and providing value.

It will only get bigger and bigger from here on, at least that’s still the case with me.

I can’t begin to describe the impact you will witness, across your personal and professional lives. Living for a purpose and being of service to those areas that matter the most to you. When you’re doing something that you believe in, things get easier and your ability to respond flows naturally.

But don’t stop here, take it further and build your internet villages. Digital writing will unlock clarity and become a gateway, and only you can imagine where those will lead. And don’t write alone, trust me, it’s a better experience when you’re part of a community.

The engagement and support you receive from members, will both support and guide you through the habit building process.

Contributing members will increase the value creation of any given community, more importantly their collective contribution that is greater than the single. Compounded creator value will reach a greater audience, and inherently provide greater value. For this reason I invite you to an extension of our previous conversation, one that will explore the potential benefits of digital writing.

The next series will focus on digital writing, as a habit and as a school of thought.

Don't try to be interesting. And don't try to be unique. Put all your efforts into being you - unashamedly, unequivocally; the purest expression of what is within you - the rest will take care of itself.

🎧 What I’ve Been Up To Lately

I was recently entrusted to speak on behalf of my colleagues in a big event, to go on stage and on tv. Doing that while training 70 people, preparing a demo day with all senior leadership involved, juggling a few fires here and there, and being the man of the house. Yah, I've been switching between things like crazy, at a rate that's faster than I'm use to and at a role that's bigger than before. Not sure how I feel about it all, but one thing is certain. I'm reaching new waters I haven't swam in before, somewhat overwhelming but feels somewhat natural also.

Indeed, I'm grateful for everything and every breath Allah swt blessed me with. Living the journey has been a sincerely humbling experience, and I'm starting to wonder what comes next? Will the things I'm doing take me to the place I want to reach, or will it lead me somewhere else? One mindset I adopted is to live my life one day at a time, try my best to balance between my duties and ambitions, and to sleep peacefully knowing that the best is yet to come. And that I have the power to choose, the life I want. Pray you have that choice too.

Yah and you know I haven't stopped slow burning a few projects, when I get into my second brain. I feel like a pilot in the control seat. This is Faisal, over & out!

🎶 Rhymes & Beats I'm Bumping  

Where I come from, getting visuals is habitual
You're more safe walking on hot coals in rituals
I splash the paint on the wall, formed a mural
He took a look, saw the manifestation of it was plural
Reunited, Wu-Tang Clan.
