The Tim Ferriss Show – Kevin Rose

Dedication and effort are essential for learning any skill; it is also important to pay attention to the energy that comes from different people and projects when investing in something.

Crafting a blueprint with nonfiction and fiction writing

  • Nonfiction is an incredible craft that requires creativity and research.
  • It’s like being an architect, carefully constructing a blueprint and then the carpentry that builds it.
  • But fiction writing is like playing a game, setting the initial conditions and then discovering what happens.
  • NFTs provide a platform to work on this project and keep the story alive, with 8 primary great houses, a podcast, art, maps, and a mysterious figure guiding the reader.

Learning Something New Takes Effort and Dedication

  • Learning something new takes effort and dedication.
  • You need to be willing to put in the time and energy to get better.
  • This is true for any skill, from learning a language to becoming a better writer.

Setting Realistic Expectations and Respecting the Creative Community

  • Creative projects often involve taking risks, exploring unknowns, and having the potential for surprises.
  • It is important to set realistic expectations and not be afraid of the outcome, no matter how uncertain it may be.
  • It is also important to remember that speculative investments are very risky and should not be used to fund important expenses.
  • If you are part of a creative project, be mindful of your actions and respect the community as a whole.
  • This way, everyone can enjoy the surprises, contribute to the project, and reap the benefits.

Creating a culture of respect and accountability

  • Creating a culture of respect and accountability is key to any successful venture.
  • Setting the rules early and sticking to them helps reinforce the desired behavior.
  • It’s important to also set clear boundaries and make it known that there is no “second chance.”
  • If someone isn’t following the rules, they should be held accountable and not allowed back.
  • This type of approach should be applied to any collaboration, and give and take should be balanced.

The great games of the free trade zone

  • Through the “warring states period” of ancient times, a unique peacemaking mechanism was developed.
  • It allowed for a special demilitarized area, called the Free Trade Zone, where the Great Games were held.
  • The Great Games were one-on-one battles between characters representing each of the eight houses.
  • They used roosters as their representatives and used MMA and gladiator-style fighting with gauntlets as weapons.
