The Creative Lens #1 - Plan Everything
Welcome the The Creative Lens, my newsletter to provide you valuable resources and tips.
I won’t be a human spam.
Let’s be honest starting now. I make this newsletter to give you useful tips and help you improve your life as well as to promote myself and my work.
The aim of the newsletter is firstly to provide you a valuable content. For this reason the number of emails will be quite limited to a maximum of 4 in a month.
If you don’t want to receive these emails feel free to unsubscribe at the bottom of the page.
And now let’s start with today topic.
This has been my strategy during my first 2 years as a content creator.
When I say to plan everything, I mean to plan everything. You shouldn’t plan only your daily tasks but also your goals.
In this way you are able to keep tracked your life and you can understand better how to improve it.
A goal without a plan is just a wish.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
This is essential if you want to be consistent and you desire to reach your goals.

There are 2 types of anxiety:

a physiological anxiety that help us to keep focused and be more productive
The last one has to be our mate. For example, I’m more anxious when I don't map out my path because I have no control on my time.
Here a list of my favourite organisation tools to keep my time ordered:
You don’t have to use these platforms but feel free to try different tools and decide which is the best for you. I suggest you to choose a simple platform without too many functions in order to have a clear organisation.
This was one of my typical week as a student and content creator when I went to school:
Here a list of links I believe are worth sharing.

My Framer Portfolio — I have recently discovered Framer, a platform which allows you to create a website without coding. There are many websites that let you make this but I found Framer the perfect middle ground between coding and simply positioning elements on the page.
Wishing you the best, see you soon!
