Experiments

Experiences are…

Mental experiments in disguise.

With every new endeavor we try, we are bound to grow.

Because we have to think differently.

We have to problem-solve in a new way.

We have to thread a needle between what we know and what we don’t.

If it becomes comfortable, easy, or predictable we must experience something different.

We don’t know the answer to the test anymore.

It’s time to get in the lab and run some new experiments.

About Jason:

Jason Gillikin is the CEO of Earfluence and Podcast Ally.

In running Earfluence, I’ve found that to be one of the most impactful benefits to our clients. Yes, podcasting is an incredibly effective way to create a content engine that can be repurposed all over the place. Yes, podcasting can tell amazing stories, show off your expertise, provide education, and even convince talent that they want to work with you.

But especially in today’s work-from-home environment, it’s those virtual handshakes – those truly insightful, rewarding, and connecting conversations with prospects and clients – that are hidden benefit.

Adversity

Starting is not the hardest part of the journey.

There is 1 glaring obstacle that trumps it.

-> The first sign of adversity.

In any project lifecycle, there can be a lot of excitement around starting something new but there is an elephant graveyard of…

  • 1 chapter rough drafts sitting on a hard drive
  • Podcasts with 3 published episodes from 4 years ago
  • A shelf full of gardening tools for that vegetable garden that never got made.

Why do many stop shortly after starting?

They think it’s a sprint and they get winded when the first hill approaches.

But, it’s a marathon, with dozens of tiny sprints in between. So, you have to be ready.

You have to build a practice, systems, and boundaries around what you want to accomplish.

-> Otherwise, you won’t keep up with it.

Just like when training for a marathon, you need to run, do strength training, change your diet, improve your sleep, etc. There are more factors than just running.

  • You have to add new things to your life and eliminate others.
  • You have to put a plan together that you can count on.
  • You might need help, too.

Adversity will come. It will hit you at some point.

Better to be prepared for the possibility so you have the tools to help you stay the course when the terrain gets challenging.

Novelist

My 11-year-old is writing his first novel.

Whether he ends up publishing it or it gets shelved for something else, he’s going to gain a tremendous amount of experience from this journey.

“I need experience” is no longer a valid excuse.

You gain experience by doing the thing.

Press On

Starting can feel overwhelming and yucky.

The fear of the unknown nips at our heels.

But when we do it, when we build a practice, when we’ve learned how to dance with the devil, it almost becomes impossible to stop the momentum.

→ Because we’ve paved a new path from nothing.

There’s no going back.

This “new you” is YOU.

The only thing to do now is press on ahead.
