The Crown Chronicles 006

Perpetual learning, new music, and granular synthesis.

Hey there, Happy Tuesday!

Today, I want to talk about something that doesn't receive enough attention. - perpetual learning. You see, in our world today, information is moving at the speed of light, and if we stop learning, we get left behind.

Many people stop their learning journey as soon as they cross the graduation stage. Well, that ain't going to get you very far! This world is moving way too fast for our brains to just cruise along in neutral.

Take me, for example. When I was in college (2013), no one even uttered the words 'social media marketing' in our marketing classes. Fast forward to now, and it's a vital part of any business strategy.

And, let's not forget about the wild world of crypto, machine learning, blockchain technology, AI, name it. Yes, a few colleges are getting on the bandwagon, but it’s not the case for the rest of the world or the vast majority of the population

What does this mean for us? Stay curious, my friends. Take that curiosity and let it guide you down a rabbit hole of learning. Put in the time, make the effort, and I promise, you'll always be 10 or even 100 steps ahead of the pack.

Remember this: if you want to be ahead of 99% of people, do the things that 99% of people won't do.

So, my friends, keep that learning machine oiled and running. Spend at least 30 minutes to an hour every day soaking up new knowledge. Find what works for you, whether that's reading, watching, listening, doing, or a combination.

Challenge yourself to learn new skills as often as possible. Yes, it will depend on the skill, but keeping your brain active and curious is the main thing here.

Staying on top of your game, staying competitive, and becoming an even better version of's all about learning, growing, and evolving.

And, the best part? This isn't just about being better at your job. It's about being a better you - a better person, partner, parent...whatever roles you have in life.

In a world where everyone is distracted, focus is a superpower.

Stay focused!

What’s New?

I've been teasing you all about this for a while, but trust me, the wait will be worth it. The 'Hurts' remixes have been in the works for a few weeks now and I'm happy to share that they will soon be ready and released. While I can't reveal the names of the artists involved just yet, I can say that I have huge admiration for them and they are both very prominent in both web2 and web3. If you are a music NFT enthusiast, you will probably recognize these names and it will hopefully make you as excited as it makes me. I promise to keep you posted.

Creative Corner

Today's Creative Corner tip is to use granular synthesizers to recycle ideas that you already know you like. If there is a sound or sample you've created in the past that you absolutely love, a great way to rethink or reuse that sound is to put it on a granular synthesizer. From there, explore the infinite ways in which you can tastefully and amazingly transform this sound. The result will be unrecognizable, a new sound based on a sound you already know sounds incredible. Give it a try and see what I mean. When I first tried it, it blew my mind.
