Sell Your Sawdust

Quick Summary

What do you do with all the notes you took while learning or researching for an article?

In my experience, over 90% of the research and notes that went into an article never get used after the article is published, even though it contains invaluable knowledge.

90% is A LOT of waste, especially when you’re throwing away something that can be valuable to other people. Luckily, there’s a better way.

Selling Your Sawdust is turning the by-products of your learning process that you’d normally throw away into a valuable product.

There are numerous benefits to selling your sawdust:

  • Sharing what you’re learning signals your competence;
  • It builds relationships;
  • It helps you become world-class;
  • It deepens your own understanding;
  • You get paid for your knowledge;
  • There’s less waste in your learning process;
  • You can create impact (team, customers, fans);
  • It makes collaborating with other learners easier;
  • It helps you build an audience as you learn.

I’ve identified four main ways to create value through selling your sawdust:

  1. Recommendations, when you take time to go through the noise to discover and recommend something valuable,
  2. Summaries & Explainers,
  3. Your own trademark ideas,
  4. How To content.

This simple shift in the way you think about your learning process and its byproducts can bring surprising results really quickly, and I really recommend you give it a shot after you finish with the manual.
