Why This Doc?

<aside> 💡 Will refer to this doc from time to time to stay on the BIP path. Revise it when there is some new information or insight that I have.


<aside> 💡 This is a way for me to clearly understand why I am doing what I am doing.



<aside> 💡 What will I do in public?


Me & my wife have been running a weekly newsletter for the last 80 weeks — The Wisdom Project.

We try to draw out insights from the best Books, Blogs, Podcasts, Videos in the world. We write about them, make podcasts and now recently, we have started making info products out of them.

We have future plans for more info products and a couple of niche content sites focused on SEO and AD revenue.

We will talk about these projects when we talk about BIP.


<aside> 💡 Why to Build in Public?


A few reasons I can think of —


18 months ago, I sent an email to 15 of my closest friends and said I will send them this email every Sunday.

It was on a whim. I had been thinking about it for a while, but just couldn't get to it, whenever I tried to start it, life got in the way.

But once I sent that email on a random day, there was no turning back. I have been doing it for 18 months now!

External accountability seems to do wonders for me.

If I have told someone that I am going to do something then I AM going to do it.
