It's been a while since 'Great Library(GL)' has been the forefront of internet broadcasting. Despite the fact he's a leading figure in business, he always looks back on himself. He still has a strong belief and a planned future to push on.
Something worth more than an ad that makes 'Money'
From his start of broadcasting as an internet BJ, Great Library received many calls for commercials. If money was a primary factor, he would have taken all the advertisement offers. But building his own brand worth was more important to him. So he kept away from gambling, porn ads. Great Library could be who he is now because he didn't follow choices that seemed like a short-cut then.
CJ E&M's DIA TV which is run mainly by Great Library, is the first for a major company to jump into the MCN business. Great Library himself is the living proof of leading a major company to start up a media business. The 'value' that Great Library wanted to cherish has brought open doors to the one-man media market.
Planning over everything!
GL puts 'planning' as the most essential part of his success.
He stresses again that it's not the star power but the power of planning that is most important for a one-man media platform. He picked 'planning' to be the reason why he could communicate with viewers through games even though he's not even a good gamer. So where does he get his plannings from?
Planning comes from experience
GL brings out his own planning from his own experiences. He used to be so into games, movies, animations while taking school off because of family issues. In the eyes of the adults, he might have seem lazy but that's when the library started to pile up. While watching movies he thought, 'If I were the producer I would..' 'If I were the actor I would...' and kept running simulations in his head.
When hosting radio shows on Sayclub, he realized not only the fun of broadcasting but his strengths as well. His voice sounded good! So GL started a part-time job his friend suggested that was related to an educational IT program. There he met a lot of planners and learned the importance of planning.
Great Library isn't even a professional nor majored in videos or editing. But now he's a pro everyone admits. More than half of what made him professional was his experiences. The Great self-taught himself how to shoot and edit. For the first years he had no separate editor. While editing everything on his own, he grew on what to improve and what to cut out as time went by.
Nor does his part-time job, and video editing seem special. Watching movies and animations even sound so ordinary. But Great Library acted upon differently.
The question he always asks to himself, 'What would I do?'
GL shared that it's most hard for him to sit still at a barber shop. He just can't stand being still. It's those moments when new information are beings
hown in front of him constantly so he can keep thinking 'what would I have done?' that makes him happy. His mind that is also set to live a happy life also makes every moment of his life into planning.
So in the end, it's this that makes the difference. Questioning everything in daily life, and taking a step forward from it. All experiences become part of who you are. How about adding some questions to your life? Like what Great Library asks himself all the time, "what would I do?"
