Welcome to the 104th edition
Another week, another newsletter! I hope that you all had a great one 🤩
This week I've decided to write a few articles. The main piece I've published is one about Community Knowledge Management, a topic that I am very fond of. I consider that article an introduction one. I intend to publish a lot more about this topic, which is broader than Personal Knowledge Management. The second article explains the concept of cognitive defusion, which I find extremely valuable. I really hope that kids would be taught about this at school. The last one focuses on decision-making, and the limited budget we have each day.
If you enjoy this newsletter and get value from it, please consider becoming a supporter. You'll be able to join our community and meet like-minded people while enabling me to keep creating content. If you prefer, you can also buy one of my products on Gumroad or offer me a cup of coffee.
Alright, let's gooooo 🚀
The lab 🧪
The lab keeps breaking new records. In the last 30 days, I've sold 56 copies of the Obsidian Starter Kit ($1.3K) and 9 copies of the PKM Library ($170). I've also made a new Gumroad affiliate sale and continued making about $100 on Medium. In total, I've made $1.6K, excluding the money I make as a freelancer (one day a week).
My Website also continues gaining traction, as can be seen below:
I'm curious how high this will get by the end of 2023!
So far this year, I still haven't recorded/published any YouTube video. I realize that I'm still procrastinating with this project. I'm facing a kind of mental barrier...

Book of the week
Making good decisions doesn't have to be a series of endless guesswork. Rather, it's a teachable skill that anyone can sharpen. In How to Decide, bestselling author Annie Duke and former professional poker player lays out a series of tools anyone can use to make better decisions
How cool is that?
