Are We Caught Up In the Rat Race of Content Creation?

in #dtube3 years ago


Here's why I have been silent with my content creation. Don't get me wrong - I am not saying we shouldn't be creating content. However, given the trend of hustling, hustling, hustling, and struggling, struggling, "struggling" to make things happen is really coming into a dangerous fashion, I believe there comes a time we need to stop and question what is really going on. As a true creator, we need to know when to stop listening to others. As a true authentic "expressionist", we need to ask ourselves where is the line to be drawn between what "experts" or "teachers" are saying and what really works for us.

The most important is knowing where you are at, what works for you, why you do what you do, and have a strategy layout to make it work for you. This doesn't just apply for the content creation world - it applies to all things in life, health, wealth, even spiritual stuff. Same old adage applies. Listen to the voice within.

What works for you - and where you at? Full vid out soon.

I also share some of your thoughts as Yes, I agree that everyone is trying to get themselves in the spotlight and for that each people is taking up a different strategy some are trying to make the number of their videos expand while for that they are sacrificing the quality of their videos in order to make more vids and get their heads up in the race.

I couldn't agree with you more Jassicania. But there's one thing I would add to that. While we're hustling struggling and crawling all the way to the top we need to listen to the people that set the path is no reason why we should carve A New Path when there's a proven system in place we can listen to Gary vaynerchuk Tom Hopkins Grant Cardone Floyd Wickman but we take what they teachers and move up forward in our own path that they set forth. Great content I subscribed to your channel looking for more from you. Thanks

Totally agree with you - we take what has been given to us - but my take is, it is very important to really listen to our own pace too, know who we are, what works for us and what doesn't - and work according to that. The problem comes when everyone follows blindly,.. and pretty much screw themselves up - . Either along the content creation line, that or, actually in any aspect in life. . Thanks so much for connecting - appreciate your thoughts!

Very interesting topic, and this content creation rat race hasn’t even reached its peak yet ! I’m looking forward to the full video and also planting your message in my conciseness!

Interesting isn't it! And while there is indeed a rat race out there, also this is really about a self awareness game as well - thanks for the support!

Indeed ! It’s all about being true to you !
Very important message !

Hhhhh, this is an argument interesting to brother Jassicania. I am one of the thousands of contest creators, and only I speak Indonesian in the contest. Continue to move according to my heart brother, I am not too obedient to get the support of the big brother power brother, I really understand the life of brother disteemit, they live in groups, they give something uvpote even one or two times for junior / sister surely understand, On this occasion I will explain a bit about me in the next video ...

I love hustling!
I really enjoyed the corporate rat race and stopped when didn't enjoy. I guess key is to figure out which game you want to play.

Remember everyone is capable of creating something and creative process is really really messy. So some people are really trying hard to discover themselves (Self Awareness) by creating content and building relationship with others.

I would say if someone is doing something for a long period of just for the sake of more money then that's the worst thing. Greed is like cancer as well as FEAR.

I do understand most people here on Steem are just thinking about money and just posting anything out there and l guess they'll soon realise what they're doing. The ones who loves creating something because they love the process will be enjoy creating content every single day!

Anyways it's the first time coming across your Dtube vlog and please let me know if I can do something for you :)

Happy Sunday!!

Yes - you pretty much nailed it in the bud - I came a long way round - and look up to a few experts - I believe they played a very important part in sparking off everyone's creative energy - and inspired people to just crack it on - and get it going. The point comes when those of us come up against a cropper when we don't have a proper strategy in play to keep up with the content creation process and get burnt out - i guess thats where trial and error comes into play - and that's when I again learn the importance of tuning in internally, while taking what's of use externally!

Thanks so much for your comment - actually I have been posting on Dlive - for a while up until last 3 weeks. Think I will be on Dtube more often now haha. Keep in touch!

Yes I do agree not get burnt out!!

Yes I was browsing through your Steemit Profile and I realise that you were continuously creating content on Dlive!

I'm so happy to have you here on Dtube and Looking forward to your future content :)

Have a lovely weekend :)

Hhhhhh, I agree with your opinion ... but everyone else has their mindset. And not everyone coming to dtube wants to earn money. The dtube platform is a social platform. I laughed at the criticism of this post.

This is a very meaningful and useful subject that I myself as a newer dtuber have thought about a lot lately. I even posted a vid talking about how distractions can kill my creativity. I am sure the pressure of being new has something to do with it also lol Regardless, I do feel it is important to keep reminding ourselves as creators that what we create should maintain purpose, quality and give us joy before any thoughts of gains. I believe with staying tapped into our creativity the gains will follow. Now to just continue to practice what I preach! I see already that it is easy to get caught up in therat race. Good reminder and Good post!

I've never gotten caught up in the race. If you're enjoying what you do then it doesn't really feel like work. Staying consistent while maintain quality is what you reward yourself with. If people around you aren't part of your mission then don't worry about what they're doing.
