I have a 50% curation rate on Medium so far, and after long thought and pondering, I've decided that I’ll spill all my beans, yes that’s right. I’ll start by answering the questions that almost every Medium writer has once asked themselves.

How do I get curated on Medium?

I don’t know, I just write. I choose a topic that seems interesting to me and that I have a passion for. It’s often in business, and I start writing. I use many small paragraphs so that people can easily read what I write, and I like just writing as I normally sound when I speak. I honestly…

You don’t need to take a business course to understand business, you only need to play and analyze these games. I’ll be discussing the video games World of Warcraft, Runescape, and Tibia. What do they all have in common? They’re full of real players. These games have their own economic systems, their own marketplaces, and people use the same strategies (perhaps unknowingly) to make money there, just as people do in real life.

Business 101

What’s the most basic thing to know in business, yet the one thing a lot of people forget? Everything is about supply and demand.

Bird is a micro-mobility company founded in California in 2017. I’m sure you probably have heard of or ridden a Bird before. Their e-scooters are everywhere, and it works in such a way that people see these scooters when they’re out in public. They can then go up to a scooter, scan its QR code, and with the use of the Bird app, temporarily rent it to go somewhere and leave it wherever they wish almost. In their first year of operation, they managed to expand so much that they managed to place these scooters in over 100 cities and…

Hi fellow writer! I’ve decided to write this story to help you succeed even more than you’re already doing.

How to Recover From a Writer’s Block? I can only tell you what always works for me, hoping that it will work for you too.

Usually, when I’ve had writer’s block, this is the process behind it:

  • I have a great writing spree with much success in my writing. Things are truly going as good as they can be!
  • The success suddenly stops, and I can’t seem to figure out anything to write about. I feel unmotivated, discouraged, slow, and brain-dead.
  • I try to write for a period of time, and I get nowhere.

I noticed a pattern that I usually do to get back on track, which is to spend time with myself, relax, and be happy in my thoughts. The thing that has…

I’m very tired of seeing articles and stories that go “10 extra incomes that will make you a guaranteed $1500 per month” and then it’s just the same old things that you’ve tried, can’t do, or it’s just false information. This list however is meant to contain things that you can actually start with today, or tomorrow depending on how long it takes to get accepted on some platforms. And will contain extra income sources / potentially full income sources that I actually know work. They’re either things that I’ve done, or seen others succeed in.

I wanted to write this piece because I've been seeing these Medium articles lately that goes “Write Short Stories And Get $10,000 A Month” and “Make A Guaranteed $3000 Per Month” And all they contain is just 5–10 different websites that you can submit pitches to. I’ve gotten frustrated from reading those articles because I know that 99.5% of the time you can’t earn $3k a month from pitching those 5–10 publications consistently. Some publications take weeks just to pay you, and other publications only need submissions a few times a year, plus your pitches need to get accepted consistently…


Why I Don’t Look at My Medium Statistics:

When I first published my first three stories, I was excited to be a part of Medium. I felt that I had worked very hard on them and was proud of my work. A few days went by, and no views. That’s when I learned that I should probably try to get a story submitted to a publisher instead.

When my next three stories got approved by different publishers, I was equally excited to be a part of those publications. I got to show my work to their followers, and now my statistics would actually show something instead of my…

Following a personal schedule can be challenging because nothing is forcing you to follow it. You feel great while you’re successful at following the plan, but there’s still something missing that makes you just not do it? That has been my experience before, at least, and I figured out why.

Break down your task(s) in more detailed orders than just “clean.” or “work.”

I’ve almost always before been very vague with my schedules. For example, when I’ve made time slots for cleaning and working, I always used to make it like this:

  • 9 A.M to 11 A.M — clean
  • 11 A.M to 3 P.M — work

Which was never working out for me…

Have you ever played a game, seen a series, or done some activity that has managed to occupy the majority of your mind for days afterward? To hold your focus on any task successfully, we must reach this state of mind towards it. Here’s how you can program your mind to do so.

Emotions.

Emotions play a massive part in deciding what occupies your mind. You think of what you love and fear. We think of what worries us and excites us. I believe that love is the most important emotion to success in general. …
