Thanks for visiting my site. I’m Suthen.
I am on the path of re-orienting my life around the things I enjoy doing.
I’m a huge basketball fan - fortunate enough to see the Raptors win the 2019 NBA Championship and get a job as a seat holder at the 2016 NBA All Star Game in Toronto (probably the best job I will ever have).
Partnered with David Perell and his Write of Passage Program to launch this idea
Wrote a 10,000 word essay on Walt Disney and his vision for the city of tomorrow
Twitter can be an incredible growth channel once you have built an audience.
A lot of writers are lonely and would welcome the opportunity to be a part of an accountability group.
Smart people have a knack of consistently consuming large amounts of information.
Write 10,000 words requires intense research!
Built a 'second brain' using Evernote
Got into the habit of taking down notes whenever I encounter new information (~2-3 notes per day)
Increased my organization skills and productivity by clearly defining my list of current projects vs. backlog items
Humans are being bombarded with a lot of information and the brain is not designed to remember and retrieve it all in the time of need
All in one integrated tools may not lead to productivity enhancements
Created my personal newsletter - suthensiva.substack.com!
Kept my weekly blog for over three months.
Built a subscriber base of 150+ people in the past two months
Your personal website is like your online resume. It's important to start early and continue to iterate on it.
A number of opportunities have come from sharing my writing online. You just don't know where it will come from until you try.
