The Part Time Creator Manifesto
Welcome to the Cook Up, a weekly newsletter full of interesting reads for curious, intelligent people who want to sharpen their minds
I hope you're having a great week.
Last week I published one new article: Losing My Job and Finding My Religion.
This week, we're talking about circumlocution, being a part-time creator, how to improve your focus and energy and Space Jam: A New Legacy.

“Circumlocution is the act of saying something using more words than necessary, often with the intent of being vague, evasive, or misleading.”
“Whether you’re a student, a teacher, or a parent, I think you’ll appreciate this story of how one teacher can completely and permanently change someone’s life in only a few lessons.”
“The creator economy has many one-percenters — full-time Indie Hackers making well over $1m a year all by their lonesome. These are remarkable accomplishments and should be celebrated. But the majority of us will never get there.”
90% of creators on Gumroad make less than $20k a year.
“Do not underestimate how profound your story is. Countless lives, even entire bloodlines and empires, will hinge on what our hero chooses to do, right now and always. You are the greatest story ever told; don’t ever convince yourself that your life is anything less than that.”
“Want to learn how to stay focused at work and in life? Use this guide and learn tools and strategies to become indistractable!”
“Learn how to create consistently great blog post ideas by building your own idea farm.”
Tools and Resources
A collection of free resources, tools, and guides to enhance your learning and help you grow.”
Quote of the Week
“Escape competition through authenticity.”
— Naval Ravikant
