Make Haste Slowly
Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither will ZenAcademy. We are looking to build something sustainable and bring value to our entire community without rushing to “launch” or “release”. We have a big vision for what the future will be, but we don’t want to over-promise and deliver something we aren’t 100% proud of. In a space where hyping, over-promising, and grand gestures clog up our timelines, we want to surprise and delight.
Give Back
We want ZenAcademy to be a place where people can come to escape the general hubbub and toxicity of the crypto/NFT space, and feel safe and happy. Along with that, we want to give to our community, to be a source of support for people at any level.
Perspective is Everything
It’s always good to reflect, take a step back, and look at what really matters. We shouldn’t worry about things that are out of our control. If the crypto/NFT market is tanking, that’s not in our control. If we are feeling regret because of something in the past, that’s not in our control. All we can do is learn from the past and focus on the present to make the best possible decisions with the information available to us.
Holistic Education
We get it, most of us came here because of money. It’s okay to admit. But our sole focus isn’t on profits, mooning, alpha, or getting rich. We want everyone to find financial independence and reach their goals, but in a way that won’t lead them to lose themselves in the process. NFTs aren’t just about making money, they're about finding art you love or connect with, finding like-minded individuals to spend time with, and fostering a community that adds value to your life.
Infinite Regret = Infinite Opportunities
Nobody can know for sure what projects will succeed. Nobody can know whether a project that has 10x’d will then go on to 100x, or whether it might crash to 0. The best we can do is make educated guesses, over and over and over again. And learn from it. The key is patience. There is never going to be a shortage of opportunities in this space, or in life.
Teach People to Fish
We are here to be a guide. We don’t have a blueprint to success, but we can share knowledge, inspire others and support people in their personal goals, financial and otherwise. We are not an alpha group where we will shill projects we don’t believe in, but we do provide a space for people to share knowledge on upcoming collaborations, exciting news, etc. We don’t deny that “alpha” has its place in the web3 ecosystem, but that is not the primary purpose of what we’re building now, or ever.
