Top 4 Key Takeaways After My First Year as Content Creator

Sharing Some Cool Stats

One year ago, in one day like this, I published my first post. 

It was about the Project Kickoff. You can check it out here.

Since then, I've published a total of 26 posts. 

I've shared with you knowledge about Project Management, Management and Productivity. 

But above all, I've grown in both personal and professional ways.

Today I'll share with you some of the key takeaways I got during the process.

Top 4 Key Take Aways

I had to do a hard exercise to select just four from the total learnings I got. I'll share below the ones that provide more value. 

I hope you'll like them.

Be Curious

Curiosity equals growth. 

As simple as it is.

If you're not curious and thirsty of new learnings, you'll probably end up in a regular job with no challenges. Which is not bad at all, but not enough for me.

So, instead of accommodating, investigate, read, assist trainings and grow. I can assure this will have a positive impact not only in your professional path, but in your live.

I referenced this skill as one of the key ones in Project Management. You can have a look here.

Step Out of Your Comfort Zone

You'll face the unknown. That's a fact.

There're two options to proceed at this point:

  • Skip the challenge and remain in the comfort of the known.
  • Struggle at the beginning but then adapt and succeed.

Let me tell you something. The unknown will be as such the first time. It will become part of your learnings and integrate within your comfort zone.

"Greatness begins beyond your comfort zone." 

- Robin Sharma - 

You'll Have to Pivot Some Times

This is a basic one not only for Content Creators, but also for all businesses in general.

Let me clarify.

I started writing about Project Management on my blog ( After some time, I wanted to to reach more audience and started also sharing content on Medium.

My beginnings on Medium were difficult as I realized the Project Management topic was not working as expected. 

So, I decided to take action and started writing about my journey on Medium. This new approach ended up working much better than just writing about Project Management.

Rely on the Technology to Boost Your Productivity

I started using Google Keep to manage my digital content. I needed a tool to store my ideas and manage my posts creation.

One day I realized it was not enough, so I moved to Trello.

Trello is a well known tool which I like. I've been using it for some months... until someone told me about Notion.

Notion makes the difference.

Imagine taking Trello, and adding timelines, formulas, customizations and much more. This is Notion.

I won't go further today, but thanks to my techie (a.k.a geek) side, I learned a lot and now I use it for everything. 

I can confirm that thanks to these tools my productivity increased exponentially.


Please, allow me to share with you one quote I love:

"Done is better than perfect." 

- Sheryl Sandberg - 

I give you one minute to read it again and try to find one or two situations where you wanted to do something but finally didn't.

This is the key point. Taking action, doing, and at the end of the day, growing.
