Tim Ferriss is wonderful -- My friend and I actually have this running joke that the 4 Hour Workweek, alongside a few key blog posts compose a sort of bible for manic depressive entrepreneur types.
Tim's concept of "Minimum Effective Load" is about simplifying your focus to leverage your strengths. Since finances are the means of liberation for creative professionals, that is where I will focus.
A few ways that I could probably earn a living at the moment:
- "Meme Fish" Fandoms on Hentai Foundry. Accept whatever Commissions come my way from maintaining a regular streaming schedule.
- Deconstruct a successful hentai artist, like Norasuko, and develop a comic series through Patreon, which utilizes widely available cosplay references, and pre-existing fandoms.
- Increase the output of my current freelance writing work, and simply produce more novels for my client each month than I already do.
I have decided to do None of the Above.
Instead, I will focus on Self-Publishing Erotica, because I have 3 years experience in the field as a ghostwriter, and I've already failed a number of times in that area. Experience and failures mean the learning curve for my target is more accessible.
Takeaway: Figure out your strengths, and leverage them to facilitate the resources necessary for you to achieve your target goal.
[In my case, having Creative Freedom, and growing as an artist.]
As much as I'd like to rip off Norasuko's Business Model, there will be plenty of time for me to join the Waifu Wars.
My current Minimum Effective Load is in writing a minimum of 5,000 words each day -- either for my Client, or for Self-Published Projects.
In order to centralize my focus in this regard, I have one more Promise to add to "Path of the Thief":
- I PROMISE to add a metric section to each post in this experiment, in order to measure my Daily Minimum Effective Load.
