To Build a Method
XPress Access | September Edition
The publishing landscape is constantly evolving. New ways of growing and engaging with each other are being developed at a rapid pace. Some legacy methods haven’t changed outright, but rather given new life through an overhauled design, while others may never change no matter the medium.
A Method For Creating Your Own Destiny
It’s less about the systems we use, and more about how we use them. This month, I wanted to write a deep-dive into a possible strategy that has helped me stay motivated and reach more people than I ever thought possible.
I’m calling it the Serendipity Method. With this method, you won’t focus on the results of each post, instead, you’ll find satisfaction in what you’ve written before you ever hit “publish”. That doesn’t mean lower quality posts, but realize that with each iteration you are improving and building a larger narrative that spans across multiple platforms and products.
The intention of this method is to visualize the bigger picture and see that with each release you are building a trail of breadcrumbs that lead back to you. Every social media post, every comment, every event you attend in person is a moment in time when you are connecting with another person. The more moments of connection that exist, and in more places, the greater chance you’ll have at establishing roots to grow in this ever-changing landscape of creation.
I hope to cover several of these key points below. Even if you’re not yet an XPress member, here’s a great video which inspired me to write this:
