the obsessionalist

I’ve observed thousands of founders and thought a lot about what it takes to make a huge amount of money or to create something important. Usually, people start off wanting the former and end up wanting the latter.

Here are 13 thoughts about how to achieve such outlier success. Everything here is easier to do once you’ve already reached a baseline degree of success (through privilege or effort) and want to put in the work to turn that into outlier success. But much of it applies to anyone.

Introducing: The Obsessionalist

Hello everyone, welcome to The Obsessionalist. My name is Tiffany and I am the human behind the obsessions.

This is for those of us who can't seem to go with the flow. And have never been labeled as easygoing as much as we'd like to try. The ones who can't quite fit themselves inside the limitations, restrictions, constraints, and societal definitions of an individual. The ones who don't exactly identify with one personality type. The ones who are a lot of things. And I am here to encourage you and validate you in the truth of that being more than okay.

Ep.02: This May Be Controversial But...

I was taught to raise my hand, own my truth, and speak up. But not just to be seen and heard but because I had something valuable to say. What can I add here that hasn’t already been covered and in a much more informed, educated, insightful way? But I don’t want to remain silent. So instead of me adding any noise, here are some voices who are bringing valuable conversations and arguments to the table. I’ve signed petitions, I’ve donated, I’ve read and tried to inform and educate myself. Let me know what more I can do. Keep me and other white people accountable. I don’t want to be in the dark. I don’t want to be ignorant, oblivious, blind, or complacent. I don’t want to settle for a system that isn’t broken but wasn’t right to begin with.
