Virtually nobody knows what the fuck they’re talking about. You can read about strategies and techniques all day long and not get any closer to a working life.
Things that worked for other people might not work for you. It might not even work for them in different circumstances. You have to have an experimental outlook. Think about things which might work and try them. Then think about what sucks about them. Think about how you can change them to get better results. Try things again.
Then write it down. We need your help.
