That's more money for you. You're GONNA have flexibility you can release podcast episodes when you want. You can change things when you want and you were going to build old skills that translate everywhere speaking in person on the phone your emails that you write you one more day. It's a better relationship with your husband. Better a relationship with your wife. It sounds crazy but those are the things that will happen to you when you're able to communicate your message. So that's why I'm focusing on that aspect of podcasting. The first thing I want you to do if you haven't already listened to the intro episode. That explains the what and the why of everything happening here to get that go. It'd be podcast dot com slash subscribe. You'll see three buttons there one for Android IPHONE FOR OUR S S feeds. Pick the one that you want. How you're listening to this podcast right now? I'll go to be podcast dot com slash subscribe hit that corresponding button. That way you will not miss an episode.

If you haven't gotten these make sure you do big podcast dot com slash subscribe today. The focus is the problem. How do you help people? Every podcast solves a problem. Let me rephrase that every successful podcast solves solves a problem this podcast. It's designed to help you get more comfortable in the Mike and the result of that. It's what I was just talking about. You were going to make more money so if we think about the problems that this podcast solves their twofold one. You're more comfortable than Mike which can give you any number of things but one of those things that the comfort on the Mike is just a bridge to bridge to more money. So that's the second problem that this podcast solves better hosting skills equals better. Delivery of your message equals more money for you and more people helped your podcast. It helps people in a different way. Do you entertain people. Do you make them laugh. That solves the problem. mm-hmm the problem doesn't have to be big. It doesn't even have to seem important. Importance is in the eye of the beholder. Maybe just entertain people. You make them laugh. That solves is a problem. There's a lot of sadness in the world. There are a lot of bored people in the world. There are people who need inspiration and fun in their life. And if you've got an entertaining podcast you're making people laugh. That is a huge problem for some people as big as any other problems that you can think of. Maybe the problems something boring. Maybe you're simply helping people to fill out. Perform take a tax form or an application for a job. That might seem boring but think about what I said about bridges. That is a bridge to more money. That is a bridge to stay in jail for not filing your taxes. Your podcast solving a problem and that is what the focus of this episode that you're going to record. It should be. So here's your action. Step get out a piece of paper get Outta pin which is outlined your episode with three things. I want you to consider the beginning middle and end all podcast episodes. It's need to have that linear format. There's an on ramp at the beginning where you're introducing yourself. You're working people into the meat of the episode. Then you're gonNA close things down you're gonNA give people an action step. Let them go on their way. Take that information that you've just given them and take it with them until you release your next episode that Action Step Japanese closing statements. That's important because you want people to subscribe keep listening to you. Use your information where you can make yourself useful and again the usefulness. Maybe that's just is making people. Laugh that how you keep people connected to your podcast. That is how you grow a big podcast audience. So you're gonNA have the beginning mill in an end.

Quickie: Better Goals Than Happiness

"All Star cast has bad words. A brand new money is approaching and that means it's the perfect time to let go. You can play the thirty. Thirty Day minimalism. Game and also download our free principle. Thirty Day minimalism game. Calendar over at the MINIMALISTS DOT com slash game enjoy is happiness the best goal in life. No happiness is not the bus going. It's funny because when I was a kid I remember having this brilliant epiphany because as a kid I remember seeing on TV or you hear adults talk about it you know. What is the point of life result purpose of life and I remember as a child I thought Oh God just wants you to be happy? Happy it's the goal of life is to just be happy everything we do serves happiness and like for the longest time that was my goal was to be happy but the problem is that as I got older I started to realize how ephemeral happiness was and because of that I started to chase a bunch of ephemeral things and arguably there are some great drugs out there that you can take to make yourself happy right but if you're happy sitting in the gutter in the gutter drooling on yourself. Are you really happy right. Actually yeah I mean arguably you could say that you are happy right but are you content. Now you're not Are you experiencing joy where you're contributing other people. No certainly not so. Let's talk about if happiness isn't the goal. What are what are some better goals than happiness for me? Love is one not not getting love but experiencing love feeling love towards others even people I mean if you can get to this sort of zinn level of loving people that are your enemy love. THY enemy is That is objectively better to me than just happiness radio. A contribution is a a a better goal than happiness contentment. We just talked about contentment and and enjoy joy. Those are better goals than happiness Integrity Yeah is a is a better goal oh than interior this means your your values are aligned with your actions are dear. Do you feel integrated maybe to me. Peace and calm and stillness. These are better goals than happiness. Yeah I would rather search for stillness or calm or inner peace Then happiness yeah. I would rather be able to deal. We'll appropriately with unhappiness. Then just be happy all the time. Yeah it's the same way it's what I was talking about the minimum episode. It's life is a shit tornado and I'd rather be able to look in the mirror and see myself covered and shit and smile rather than try to live a life where I was like trying to live squeaky clean as possible. Smile is so important to in fact the smiles are contagious right. Even you see someone Smilin' I'm real big. It's hard not to smile back even if you're not in the best mood and so to me smiling is probably now often you smile when you're happy right but smiling my be at least a better objective than than happiness because it's contagious and it's it's at least in some small way contributing to two other. I pay people yeah. So what is the Go-to Life Josh. I think I think I had to go to. Life is to eat as much ice cream as possible possible. What heaven is not get fat? Yeah Oh that's pleasure never mind. I mean that's the thing though. We often in in a moment. I'm going to gorge on this thing. That's what happiness is to a great extent that the metaphor I'd just use the Or an orgasm versus a one night stand sexual counter wall. nightstand sexual counter will make you happy but it will. It will dissipate in around the been. Now you're going to have to do another one and now I have to have a threesome and now I have to deal with all these other. Thanks there's nothing wrong with having sex with someone even if it's not a long term relationship Eh. As long as you're being safe it's totally fine. That will bring you some happiness but if we're chasing pleasure and forsaking I'm joy contentment. Contribution love man that that doesn't seem to be the the objective at all. No I I I. The objective is to live a meaningful life because when he strived to live a meaningful life happiness will come pleasure will come joy will come. I'm like those things it's a byproduct of living meaningful life. Also there will be some valleys and you'll have some shit times but living just for happiness happiness. You're you're going to It happiness fades happiness ephemeral. So if you're looking for something that's a federal you're always gonNA. You're always gonna live discontented life awry. We hope you found value in that standalone. quickey quickey episode.

Has that today the focus. I call this the final question because we are on day number thirty of the thirty day solar podcast challenge. Sometimes though if I'm doing an interview. This is the first question that I ask. I always ask my guest. What do you want listeners listeners? To know about you or at the end a related question is there something. I should have asked but didn't my job when I've got a guests on any of my shows it's to help spread his or her message when you have a guest you're introducing that guest to your audience. That may be the first time that audience has ever experienced this guest so you have a very important job of letting the audience know what that guest is about but even more important because this is the thirty day solo. podcast challenge is that you have the ability to let your audience know what you are about. So I've got a similar question for you if you had a huge billboard in Times Square on New Year's Eve and the whole world was watching what would that billboard say. What do you want the world to know about you a few days ago? I asked You the question. What do you want listeners to know about you? What do you like to work with? What kind of work do you do? This is something a little bit different. And here's why I'm talking about it here. This is why it's important as far as this billboard goes. This is the drug that I want you to be pounding all the time. They should be something that you go back to again. And again as long as you do your podcasts. Solo or otherwise and it should be obvious to listeners. What you want them him to think about this? I'm going to give you an example. This isn't something I would necessarily put on a billboard but this is something that I'm going to put here because this message is for you you. You're my audience. I don't speak to the world. Speak to very specific people in this case you being one of these people a podcast. You're trying to have a solo podcast. Her and my message is this this. You can do this.

I know I've said this this law but it's worth repeating this system that I'm taking you through days one through thirty of the Thirty Day Sola. podcast challenge this builds upon itself. And by the time you get to the the end of the thirty days you're going to be so much better not only with your delivery but being able to share these things with your audience in a way. That's going to make them really Lee appreciate who you are as a person but also appreciate that message. They're going to listen to you more. They'll subscribe to you more often. They'll tell their friends about you. have their friends. Subscribed describe so. This is a process that I'm working through today. The focus is mistakes. Not your mistakes. Well maybe you can add them because there's personal stories are always as good though always help you to get listeners attracted to you even more but specifically what I want you to talk about is the mistakes that you see people who are listening to your podcast making making for example. If you've got a marriage podcast. What marriage mistakes are those people making? Maybe you talk about health and fitness. What health and fitness mistakes or people making when trying to lose weight when trying to have better cardio health when trying to have more stamina to run faster to run longer you gotta money podcast? What money mistakes are people people making you sharing? These mistakes is important for a few reasons. The first is that it shows that you have listeners. Social proof you can give these mistakes as part of a story. I had had a listener and here is a mistake. She was making it shows. You have listeners. It shows that you knew the mistake that was happening and it shows if if you want to tell this story how that mistake was corrected. That's the other thing that Sherry mistakes helps you do shows that you have the awareness of an issue and it can tease a solution. It may also show if you want to add a personal story that you have been through this issue. Let me give you an example of how this works as always because does this podcast. It's about podcasting. Here's an example about podcasting by the way. I hope you know they've got a blog. It's called big podcast bulletin bulletin dot big podcast hot cast dot com. I'm going to give you three podcasting mistakes. This was from a guest post by Laurel Staples called three mistakes. I made starting my first podcast. See if you can relate to these. He's one spending too much money on podcasting equipment. If you're listening to other podcasters especially experienced podcasters a lot of them like to talk about equipment. Flashy things things they plug in and I think the reason we do that as podcasters is because it can feel that we are accomplishing something when we purchase something. Consumption consumption equals accomplishment. That's what we think but not really in. This article talks about spending too much on podcast and equipment and why. That actually didn't help her. You're the second thing she mentioned thinking. If I build it they will come. Meaning if I create a podcast people will automatically start listening to me. That is not the case. You can build it but you need to do it right. And that's what we're talking about on the thirty day solo. PODCAST challenge talking about the information that you need. I need to share with people and how to share that information with them simply building. Something doesn't mean anybody will come and simply building something even right doesn't means you won't have to think about marketing your podcast. You do need to think about marketing. But as I mentioned having that focused message the brevity being able to clearly communicate your message that alone puts you leaps and bounds above other people who may be spending even more a marketing. So I WANNA be clear. She's right about this. If I build it they will come. That's that's not necessarily correct. Maybe correct some people however building it right then adding just a little bit of marketing is going to be more powerful than all all the marketing in the world. If you don't build something correctly the third thing. She mentioned relying too heavily on advertising. And that's what I was talking about if you've got a podcast that wasn't to bill correctly. It's not structured with good clear message all the advertising in the world's not going to help you. I'm going to have a link to this article in the episode notes by the way I'm always looking for great guest writers for this blog. Reach out to me at big PODCAST DOT com. You're interested let me give you those three mistakes again. One spending too much money on podcasting asked him to thinking. If I build it they will come without thinking about what you're actually building. You got to build some kind of quality if you want to attract the people but you also need to think about what am I going to do in addition to build something to get people to come. It's a one two punch because that third thing relying too heavily on advertising. You can't just do that either. You've got to have a combination of great content and also advertising. You can't just have advertising. You can't just have content the action step for you. I want you to get your pin. Get your paper outlined your episode with three things considered the beginning the middle and the end. This is something talked about throughout this series. You WanNa have a linear episode. You'd have an on ramp get people to the meat then you need to have an off ramp. Leave them with a nice ace satisfying feeling feeling like they've gotten an entire experience from your episode not an incomplete experience like an into just stops and like like what was that. Where was that going? He stopped right in the middle of it. Don't do that given the intro. Tell them why it's important giving them meet the mistakes you see people making taking then wrap it up why that is important how you can do the opposite of those mistakes. Remember stories are important so at stores where you can personal stories or best best whenever that earlier keep your outlined short and tight. Don't over think it hit record go for it upload it and if you want to send it to me you can do that via big podcast dot com. I'm happy to look at these happy to listen to them. See what you're doing talk to you about how you can do it better. I think we need more solo podcasters.

Quickie: How to Let Go When Overwhelmed by Decluttering

Quickie: How to Let Go When Overwhelmed by Decluttering

"Uh-huh minimalists. What to do when you're overwhelmed with the process of removing stuff and forward, progress becomes difficult. I would rephrase the question a little bit here I would say, how do you let go when you're overwhelmed by decluttering? Yeah. Because that's what's happening right now I and this happened to me as well when I dealt with my mom stuff after she died I was overwhelmed with that but not as much as when I got home. I realized. Oh. I'm an organized hoarder I my my house looked like an advertisement for container store. And and so. It was overwhelming. Where do I even start? And I wish I would have. The reason we've come up with all these rules whether it's the minimalist rule book or the Thirty, day minimalism game or whatever it is is because I wish I had these things to start the Thirty Day minimalism game in particular is actually how I start is iteration on how I started the what I asked myself early on. I didn't know what to do I didn't know where to start and so I just sort of through my hands up and I was exacerbated in most people. That's what happens you are exacerbated by your stuff and so I said what if I just got rid of one item one material possession a day for from one just one item day. For months. Thirty days? Thirty items what would happen Well, it turns out I, got rid of way more than thirty items because as you get that momentum, I, think you were one thing today I'm not GonNa Stop One thing right and that was the whole point of the minimalism game where you start with with one item. But then the next day you are able to get like a little bit more two items next day three items a little bit more each day because you get that momentum it what I find is some people will. Tweet US solo messages on Youtube or whatever they'll say, hey, after like day five found I had already gotten rid of five hundred things because I just needed that initial spark to start letting go it starts this beautiful conflagration of of getting rid of stuff. So yes, I mean obviously I think you start with a thirty day minimalism game the minimalists dot com slash game, and you just go from there. This question makes me think about being on the exercise bike I turn the resistance like way up yeah and then within. This isn't happen all the time, but sometimes I turn it to far up and I'm like Oh crap like I can't continue this resistance. So my inclination is just like take off all the resistance and keep going but I'm like if I take all the resistance off then I'm going to lose his momentum that I've built during this bike ride. So the question is if you have too much resistance right now, how can you take a little bit of the resistance off so You know if you are overwhelmed with with decluttering and you're tackling your house all at once then just move it to like a closet or something just don't lose that momentum though but yeah, it's okay to turn on the resistance a little bit. I love that analogy thirty, thirty mid day minimalism as a great way to 'cause to me that seems like a good. Middle Ground, you're still getting ready to stuff. It actually turns up the resistance slowly for you because imagine if you had to start the opposite now some people do this. But if you had to get rid of thirty one items the first day you'd be like that might be too much. It's too much resistance star. It's just like when you start doing the exercise bike. Crank it all the way up immediately. It's slowly turning that resistance up I. Love that even better made me think like when I turn the resistance up is because I started out at a level that I think like, Oh this is going to be a good resistance to keep me working out and then it's really easy. Yeah, and I'm like, Oh, I can crank this. Up and then I do crank it up and it's great for a very short period of time right? So yeah I could see where going to that declaring process. You get really excited you start you know you turn it up and then you get to where you're like, I have over one myself and so you got to turn it back down. Think the last simple. Trick here is. Start with the things that are easier for you. You don't want to start with your most precious, most sentimental items that you might have a bunch of those that actually end up not being sentimental items for you. We already talked about that a bit earlier on but you you will have some things real like I know that triple X. Orange sweatshirt that I haven't worn since two thousand, three smell to Josh. Yeah I gotta get bigger closed the cover of these muscles. That's right. Yeah. But there are things that you. Know that you know they're just in the way start with those because that will start get you the momentum and you start questioning the other things that you know you should probably get rid of well. Awry. We hope you found value in that standalone quickey episode. If you enjoyed it and you want more Ryan and I record a long form maximal episode each week over at the minimalists private podcast, find all the details and all the good stuff including an additional private podcast episode every week over at the minimalists dot com slash support.

A pop with a bug exterminating podcast. And get this fewer than one thousand people per episode owed are listening to it. That's crazy it's totally counterintuitive.

Clarifying your message being able to deliver it and connect with your audience in a personal shnell inhuman way a way that makes them want to come back and listen to you. Subscribe to you. Tell their friends about you. Here's the focus for today. We're not told you the story yesterday. Eh The guy cleaning parking lots has six figure business. The guy cleaning fish tanks. That has a six figure business. Mike Stewart with thirty thousand dollars. A pop bug exterminating podcast. That was surprise. And that's the question. What something that's happened through your podcast? That surprised you. It can be related to the podcast itself health or the business behind it or maybe you just met some cool people. Sometimes that happens. I'm in Nashville. The band coming through town plan a venue called Bridgestone Stone Arena holds about twenty thousand people. I've got a friend of mine. She really likes the band she saw. They were going on tour she goes. Hey come through town will just so happens that I got this guy cell phone number in my cell phone how crazy that I can call him directly I saw comte. I know that guy now like V. Guy onstage the singer in this band and I can call him up and I can make the happen. Not only tickets. Short could get backstage as well if I wanted to. That is how close with this guy. We have each other's numbers in in our phone and we communicate that way. But I'm going to give you another story of something that surprises me. That was a direct result of my podcast. I let me talk about why this is important. Portent what is something that's happened to you through your podcast. That surprised you. The reason that question is important and the reason knowing the answer to that question Shen is important is because it shows your progress. You thought one thing would happen or maybe thought something wouldn't happen or maybe you didn't think anything then something did happen. Maybe it was good. Maybe it was bad but either way it was a surprise. Here's something that snuck up on me. I don't think anybody would think anything of this except other podcasters so I wanNA share with you as a podcast. I think it's going to be more to you than any other story that I could possibly tell you as talked about before how I got into podcasting was via broadcast radio and over the years. We've cut some really great episodes radio. Oh Not podcasting once we put something out there. It's not like anybody can get it any time. You GotTa wait till the show is on the air. You've gotTA listen to it. You can't just get it on demand not on the broadcast side. So we decided to rerun some of the older episodes that were really good. We we called it the vault from the vault and we had these great guests but the promos needed to be changed. I couldn't say something like. Hey it's Dave Stewart from eurythmics coming in in this week. He's going to talk about his new album blackbird sessions. That's this week. I couldn't do it. Because in that example blackbird sessions. That album is old. Now Dave Stewart has done things since then so I had to go in and re cut some of the promos and it said something like hates David who prefer music business radio we're going to reach into the vault and pull out one of our very best. Most host requested episodes this my interview a day Stewart. We're going to talk about blank blank blank. Anyway the point is this is going through these promos. I was taken back to a time when I was newer at radio. Because I come in there with a little bit of experience but not much. I certainly wasn't as smooth as I am now and I was making all sorts of mistakes I would script out everything and I went in for the volt promos. The Rerun Promo several years later and I was nailing a man Bam Bam Bam Bam Bam and didn't feel pressure from the other people in the room. Because I used to feel that. It's not only my podcasts. Well podcast is just me an engineer at our produce it I hosted obviously but when I'm on the radio I've got a producer in the guest in there. I've got an engineer in there. Of course I didn't have a guest for these re cuts but I did have a producer there. I did have an engineer and I used to feel a lot of pressure and Blah Blah Blah Blah. A mess it up. It's about a fifteen second promo has several times or they'd have to piece together splice. compet whatever you WANNA call it man I was booking through these things Bam. They were perfect. I was on a roll and I walked out of there. I was like Damn. This is amazing. This is amazing. This is the skill that you develop by showing up every week. Thank you don't see it from week to week but when you go back a year two years five years you can really notice it and and that's why I'm telling you on this thirty day solo. PODCAST challenge that. I want you to get to the end of this day number thirty. I want you to cut your show edited. Get it up and I want you to go back and listen to episode one. And you're GONNA BE AMAZED YOU'RE A wo- a really jumped in here and I didn't see the the progress happening but now I do. It's a month later. I can see it and maybe it's not going to be big. Maybe it's just a little bit but it's going to be noticeable and maybe like me go in there re-cut in those promos. You're going to be surprised because when you started this this thought I'm going to jump in but is not going to happen for me. It will happen for everybody else. Maybe but no not me then. You'RE GONNA find out that it did happen to you. That's my goal. That's why I'm doing this and that's why we're jumping in so hard. This is not easy we are just a little bit over halfway. I know it's not easy because I'm doing here with you but you're sticking it out with me and we're getting better. You never stop getting better when you jump in. Stretch a stretch yourself recorded edited. Stretch yourself the next day. You never stop improving. You never stop improving when you dig deep outlined those episodes record them edit them and really work on your hosting. There's always somewhere else to go so again. I'm right there with you.

Personal Stories are best. I want you to really connect with the people who are listening to you. Let them get to know you. That's why they're listening.

You'll recognize yourself time and time again in their words. Do not miss this devotional. This divisional is available on Amazon both in soft cover or conversion to the adoption connection podcast where we share resources by and for adoptive and foster MOMS. I'm Lisa qualls and this is Melissa Corkum. Don't worry we get it and we're here for you. Today is a mentor moments episode where we answer a listener question action these episodes give you a chance to join the conversation and guarantee were providing the most helpful tools and resources for exactly where you are and this question is my child has more challenges than nearly any other child I know should I have my child tested and diagnosed yeah. It's such a good question. I do get asked this a lot about diagnoses and what the benefits are and if there's any drawbacks having walked through this with four kids now this is kind of where I land diagnoses are really really good. If they're going to help you get more help support and or services that will serve your child. Well diagnosing can adjust I diagnosis is not always super helpful. I was one of those people that didn't want to get a diagnosis 'cause I didn't want to label my child. I didn't want to box them in. I didn't want it to follow them through all of school all of their life especially if we were able to come to appoint appealing where really didn't apply anymore and we definitely have one of our kids who was diagnosed with multiple pretty scary diagnoses and does not have a single symptom. Symptom of any of those diagnoses except some residual anxiety but we've also found that there are some really helpful things in terms of therapies. How insurance covers things that require a diagnosis in that case? I think it's totally worth it. Yes sometimes a diagnosis will open up sources of funding for kids. Different states have different kinds of funding it will open up like you're saying insurance coverage for things that you might have been paying for on your own can give some opportunities unity's and if your kids are in school. It definitely provides extra support for them either through a five Oh four plan or an I._e._p.. That's even more specified and supportive for a child so I think it does offer some benefits for families but it also has some negatives. Can you talk about that while I know that a lot of diagnoses have kind of a stigma around them and so especially if you know someone who's helping you know who's on your child's team a teacher feature or a sports coat charter. Someone who you disclose the diagnosis to it may actually work against your child so I think in that case one you don't have to disclose diagnoses to everyone and so just be careful who you disclose two and two if you do disclose maybe provide some education around that about what that means for your particular child you know just impractical. 's for how that would affect how that particular adult or caretaker for your child would interact with your child so let's say that your child l. has an oppositional defiance disorder diagnosis. You may or may not want to disclose the actual diagnosis but you could definitely say to a coach or teacher. Hey my child may seem to really struggle with following instructions but we found that a a really good way to get his dyin is to offer him two choices rather than just telling him what he needs to do near the more he feels included in the group or the classroom or the team or whatever on the more likely he is to go along with the plan. Yeah that's a good point. I was just thinking about how sometimes a diagnosis can actually help the child's themselves like my youngest was diagnosed. We finally did some testing and he was diagnosed with A._d._H._d.. I think it's helped him understand. Stand his struggles that he's not a bad kid. The reason he's struggling so much more than his peers in terms of being still in class or not blurting things out is that he actually has a condition that makes it hard for him and when I took him to meet his new teacher I asked his permission to tell her that he takes medication in the morning for A._d._H._d.. And that on occasion we forget and then you know he needs to get it at school in anyhow she was so great and she said to him. We'll tell me what does it look like. What will I see if you've maybe not taking your medication and he was able to tell her he said well? I'll probably talk too much and and then he went through a few different things that he recognizes is about himself that the A._d._H._d.. is part of his Kinda pull some of these behaviors together for him in his mind and I think it's really helpful for him. Yeah I think the other part to that is we have always been very eh with our kids about diagnoses and or what that means for their brain. I'm a real I'm a sprain science nerd now after having all of these kids with difficulties and from trauma and that's true. I'll just have that right here. That's definitely true. Are Your brain science nerd. I'll take that as a compliment it is so we so even if we go for diagnosis a lot of times will explain to them why we looked for that diagnosis because sometimes we're not looking to label them. We're looking for service and so were not trying to say like Oh. I think you're a bad kid or I think. Sometimes we're not like. I don't even think you have this but if we let the doctor say you have this then we'll be able to get you this service or this extra help for you also explaining as best as we can as S.'s we know what that means in terms of their brain and we've done things like brain scans and other tests and things that really get into that and so we're able to say well like we just know that this particular frequency of your brain isn't there as in the same way that it is an other kids brains and so that is why this behavior looks this way or this thing looks that way and so I think it's really helpful for them and then more importantly it's really helpful for me because I always think like our kids with invisible disabilities. Abilities for someone who is such a concrete girder I really struggle with sometimes seeing a behavior and remembering that it's part of a disability and I always think like if I had a child who has a paraplegic who didn't get out of his wheelchair and walk around during the day day and so I would have to help him toilet or get food or you know all the things that would require of me as a caretaker. I would like to think I wouldn't be angry at this child who wouldn't just get up and get his own snack right but I find myself being really frustrated frustrated at my child who I know has diagnosed brain condition and permanent brain damage and when I have to remind him to do things it drives me nuts but really he can't. It's just the way his brain is built or not built so being helpful to the mindset of our kids but that also being helpful to the mindset for us just so that our compassion is greater and doesn't expire every day absolutely I found that for me. I just have more patients when I think about my kids. Diagnoses say P._T._S._D.. St Or A._D._H._d.. Or different things it does give me more compassion for them. I have to be careful though because of my particular personality to be careful not to let that become an excuse. I have compassion but I'm I WANNA put things in place place for them to help them. Succeed is just something I have to work through in my mind when one of my child's behavior is really irritating me you know is this just regular tough kid behavior or is it specifically because of this conditions so it's something that have to work to balance for myself. I think that's huge and I think it's hard and it's like forever balance of like radically accepting our kids exactly where they are but then also not giving up on them so I feel like that's a tension attention. I'm in all the time and you know there's another thing that is useful in terms of diagnosis and that is sometimes it can actually give our child Sun Protection Lucid. You want to talk a little bit about that. We've talked about it together but I think our listeners would be interested to well. I mean it just comes from watching one of my particular kids and just thinking I can't protect him forever and there's a very good possibility that he's going to do something that's just impulsive and not well thought out as an adult. Built and there's a really good possibility that he could be charged for doing something that was impulsive. You know it's definitely like worst case scenario but I felt like an his case has diagnosis. I think will protect him if heaven forbid that should ever come to fruition and that he would you know possibly get be seen as someone who may be needed more support and not as someone who has a criminal <hes> so that was one of the reasons besides my <music> sanity and ability to accept him where he was <hes> that was another piece of the puzzle and then also the ability to be able to continue to help him navigate what his needs are beyond eighteen because I don't know I mean we have older kids and you have some older our kids Lisa and I had never thought far head and saw obviously our kids were older but you know once they turn eighteen the law sees them as capable of caring for their own things you no longer can check in with the doctor and see what's going on or manage medication or there's so many things that I took for granted that I have been helping my kids do and then as a couple of them have turned eighteen all the sudden like it's not a gradual like transition like boom. You're just cut out of their life from a professional standpoint and so we have a couple of kids that I think would benefit fit from having us be able to help them navigate that system a little bit longer and so a diagnosis can help you get guardianship. You know some just legal allowance for you to continue to have a say in how your child is being helped or treated beyond a team. That's really good. That's really important to consider depending on the type of behaviors and the type of condition your child. Has I mean right now. We're not talking about something like A._d._H._d.. We're talking about actual brain development challenges either well could trauma can be exposure could be all kinds of different things have a friend whose child had cerebral malaria you know so there are a lot of things that affect kids brains that if they do have a diagnosis could provide them some protection and support in their adulthood as well some things to think about when you're going for a diagnosis. There's lots of places to get diagnoses depending on what type of diagnosis you're going after. I always think it's a great idea for families to be walking alongside a trauma informed like therapist. <hes> or social worker or someone who can help them just navigate this. Obviously therapists can diagnose things like P._T._S._D.. Or attachment disorders there's really not like testing so much but it's more through relationship and getting to know your child that you can get those diagnoses things like sensory processing disorder and A._d._H._d.. And things like that this come through either like a nurse or they can come through the school system your pediatrician know that you can get the same diagnosis through multiple channels and sometimes that's helpful because it can can kinda be corroborating <hes> but also know that some diagnoses depending on where they're received from don't always transfer into other venues so diagnosis by your school system for like an I._e._p.. May Not get you insurance coverage. You may need to get additional diagnosis from a medical provider or something like that on the flipside diagnosis from a medical provider should go a long way if not be full acceptable by the school system so the school system in most states. It's not as usually free. That's a great place to start but you might want another medical professional to kind of corroborate a diagnosis for you. Another thing to note also is that a diagnosis doesn't really change change how your child should be parented so <hes> Lisa and I are both fans of using connected parenting with kids by birth and adoption regardless of the diagnosis and so like I said we've walked through this with four kids now. Some of them are grown already gone and they have a whole variety of diagnoses and these parenting techniques kind of work no matter what so I hope this is helpful to our friend who submitted this question if you would like to Smith question for a future episode send an email to email at the adoption connection dot com or leave a message for us at our number two zero eight seven four one three eight zero we we promise nobody will answer you.

student at marshall county high school right here in her home state of kentucky clear was recently selected for a national fellowship program called twenty two by twenty his mission is to connect more diverse young voices in the media gearing up for the twenty twenty election a clearer thanks for joining me here in fact i think it'd be here so tell me about this fellowship so essentially what the fellowship there about ten fellows from all across the united states an end every month we do these projects that we all called action so it could be anything from you know making a meme about voter registration or you know just trying to get are peers involved in the civil process that's a really exciting program to be part of so you're working on getting more people to vote what else do you wanna see kids you're age doing in the process young adult i should say you're age doing in the process i would really like to see people just get more informed start giving their own research you know getting personally involved in politics because it really does affect us even if you're not old enough to vote or if you just became old enough to vote you absolutely need to be involved in that process and that could be anything from you know knocking on doors were a campaign phone banking or even just talking cheer friends at school about who they're gonna vote find a primary or their parents will vote for anything to get involved is important and you have peers in this program all over the united states is not right yes so what kind of reception are you getting at your local high school i think the reception had been in pretty positive so far i mostly involve people that i know are willing to participate so that helps a little bit i think overall people in my area and you know sometimes we have a hard time getting people more involved in politics picks you know i believe in a rural area but i think that everyone is excited to learn whenever they realize how much does it affects their own life personally because i know especially for high schoolers it's easy just say well you know i can't vote yet or i just registered and i just don't think that this really matters to me personally but whenever you sit down and talk to people and you say well look at your local representatives look what they're doing for you or what they're not doing for you i think people want to become more actively engaged when you have that kind of conversation with someone what is the most common issue that you see a light turned on for them like oh this really does matter to me i think for a lot of people especially my area agricultural policy he is a really big thing for us a lot of people at my high school are going into occasional technical training so anything that affect those areas in particular but also my area was affected by gun violence and so a lot of times with students who were involved in you know marc wise and and things like that a lot of times they will look at gun violence policies what is it that you think prevents people from voting or registering to vote at your age i think just that level of apathy and thinking you know my vote doesn't matter my vote doesn't count that really does affect the perception of being civically engaged so i think that you know that really hurts people bought and they do become more apathetic so that process because they think you you know even if i vote for i want you it doesn't matter because i'm a democrat democrats don't care if you're republican republicans don't get elected here so i think just sort of breaking out perception is one of the biggest challenges if we had greater participation from people who are eighteen in the process what kind of impact do you think that would have on are politics i think are politics would definitely start looking at more issues that affect people my age specifically you know on college tuition and and the rising prices the just getting a quality education is one of the most prevalent issues that i hear people talk about and you know my friends and stuff we talk about that a lot because paying for college is so so hard in this day and age but i think also politics we talk a lot more you know we're talking about climate change a lot better something that'd be younger generation my generation is looking at a lot more closely than are older relatives and legislators because we will be the want to have to deal with those problems in the future there's been a lot of conversation about lowering the voting age to sixteen what's your perspective on that discussion for me personally i think that lowering the voting age definitely has its pros and cons i it's something that i've been looking at personally and it's it's one of those things but it's really hard to decide on but i honestly don't see why it would be a problem to in baltimore people in the process i think you know sixteen year old are definitely we part of you know this sort of generation that needs to be involved in the legislative process i think earlier you can get involved in that process you know the more invested you will be so if we start reaching out to sixteen year old seventeen year and they are able to vote they will become lifelong voters in my opinion and i think that that is so so important so i really i think that lowering the voting age would probably be for the best but there's arguments about by exposure one of the aspects of your fellowship is to talk about getting a greater diversity of voices in media so i'm wondering what you think of the twenty twenty coverage so far and what kind of sources you care about and what you like about those sources i think twenty twenty coverage average you know you see a lot of the same couple three candidates are so and so i think definitely getting more voices in there and we've recently seen that a little bit more 'cause you know originally you had you're you know talk to kennedy like pete buddha judge is sort of rising in the ranks a little bit and a lot of that is from you know media attention that he got you know he earned that and so i think making sure they were able to amplify those different voices is so important but for me personally i am a big big npr fan i absolutely adore npr so i think that 'em finding unbiased sources like that is so important to make sure you know you wanna listen to an end how you want receive information but also so you know podcasts like this one i think are great way to get information but also hear other people's opinions because you know especially with listening dependency politics i feel like i'm they're having that conversation with you guys and that is so helpful for me to formulate my own opinions indians because even if i don't agree with you it forces me to think about why don't agree it's not an issue what started you're interested in politics for me personally i whenever i first came to high school we had a young democrats club and it was it was a little you know in a small club and i go to a so much more high school so i wasn't really looking at it you know to be in the cloud necessarily but i figured they find joined it would make my parents mad so i decided to sign up at the joke but you know the morning got involved in the club because my friends where you know pretty heavily in politics the more realized that this does affect me in this is something i absolutely care about so so i you know i started knocking on doors and campaigning for people and i just really found a passion for it and i realized how important that it was to my community that young people like myself being involved and make sure their voices are heard so 'em now imprisoned end up being democrats clubs that really came full circle but i think that just getting involved in clubs in organizations in high school really propelled me to this point what would you say to parents of kids who are not interested yet in parents who really want their kids to get excited about this process how can parents best be supportive i think it's probably much more effective coming from you and your peers but what can people in my age group due to be helpful year i think just sort of starting conversation first off it's so important because you know as i was growing up my parents were never very end the politics they weren't politically people they would vote but that was about it and i didn't do a lot of research but 'em and i think that's where a lot of parents especially in my area you know are coming from they're not accurate politically participants but you know if you want your kids to be involved in that process you also have to be involved so i think you know talking about primary candidates as a family you know making making sure you're could understand why you're voting for you are voting for and then being open to a discussion because i know you know sometimes my parents will disagree on politics and whenever i was younger that felt very much like you know we have a disagreement agreement that shutting me down and i don't need have you know certain opinions that are different so i think that and making sure that kids don't have that protection you know we have a diversity of opinions and that's absolutely fine as long as you could have a productive conversation about it so i think making sure that those conversations are being added healthy and really positive way where you're encouraging you're a child so you know it's one of their own interests symbolic because everyone has certain issues that they care about more than others and making sure that your children you know understand why you vote the way you do and that it's okay if they don't wanna wait in the future what's up next for you clear what do you have on deck for this program but you're excited about currently we are in some of the last stages of the program which is very sad but were working on a raft you call the action and are last will actually be sort of free style so we can do pretty much whatever we want with it so i'm exploring options but on the twenty twenty campaign overall has been an absolute blessing in my life and i had an amazing time being part of it an i really can't wait to continue this work with other programs and in college and just involving my pictures in the civic process is so important to me and just having the opportunity to do that has been incredible well i'm so glad that you're doing it thank you for getting more people excited about the process is there anything i've not ask you that you think it's important for people to get involved in politics bested he can i think that's just the most important thing just making sure that you're informed and engaged after do thank you so much

that the individual who has dementia in the early stages even mid stage couldn't work through or you can sit down as the caregiver where you're not one and work sue the days ratings together and it takes their mind back to a time in place they consumer like to check it out at let's talk mencia dot o r g well today i wanna talk with you about taking those grandkids visit grandma and grandpa at the nursing home or the skilled 'em skilled nursing facility here this just living at a group home everybody calls everything nursing home one is just not true pretty much term you don't hear a lot of a lot of folks are living in an assisted living or memory can't do we take the kids to visit well yeah you do i am if you've got well behaved kids unless you know how we'll pay kids i can't help that that's something you should have been working on a long time ago but yeah you wanna take the kids to visit grandma and grandpa you wanna tell the kids they had the time this is what grandma and grandpa have going on in the world and they're not gonna remember some of the things that you told them in you may have to repeat stories but that's okay this is what we do you also do well to reminder kids about that inside voice business when we get a whole bunch of noise going on in the room all at one time around folks with dementia is generally not gonna come out good now i believe i have recently talked about that how we don't have the loss of hearing as direct relation to timers so that you're not you can't hear that you need to scream at them probably not a very good idea i tell you the last time my mom with the hospital the nurses would come in and she would talk to my sister and i are normal voice and then she would look over at my mother who i'm standing right beside her bed and she which grain her words at my mama and i finally said man my momma has mentioned but she does not have a hearing loss you have screaming at her so you don't want a lot of commotion ocean in the room at one time so if you've got like fourteen children do not take them all at one time that's not a good idea or be no other family members you're gonna be there with their kids space out those visits others not so much on stimulation that it becomes over over stimulation for your loved one with dementia become that's not gonna come out right you don't want to be around someone with dementia that has been over stimulated 'em they they become agitated they become angry they become combative it's not a pretty picture you are the same way you don't wanna be in there are situations you don't wanna be in in you know if you're in the situation is it makes you feel yucky it's the same thing with with dementia so be aware of that but this thought of oh i don't want johnny did know that grandma doesn't remember him oh get a grip johnny's gonna just just fine and you're gonna explain the johnny becomes his brain is capable of understanding yes you're gonna explain the johnny what's going on in that grandma has a disease called up timers is the right words just call it what it is or grandma had parkinson's disease or whatever and she does understand some things you're talking about and she doesn't remember but we're just gonna go in and be sweet grandma in you know what i want you to do when you go to grandma i want you go in there and give her a big hug if you don't mind i think it means a lot to grandma she gave her a big hug but we tell you why you don't do as a family member don't push your children to go hook other people i see both bring their kids

Quickie: The Most Minimal Exercise

"Cam, How can you increase motivation in your life? What are some health experts? Health exercises that you would recommend for someone who does not have access to gym. Equipment in does not want to spend money on access items now. Max, there's an interesting word here. Excess items doesn't mean no items right and I think we've already covered that right now. At home I have I have a stationary bike. Sodas Ryan I'm not saying you need to also get one of those, but for me. I've determined. That's not access to me. I ride. Ride that three or four times a week I also have a set of weights like the power blocks and I was using those this morning. So that's not access for me. I use them. I've pull up bar. I do push ups. I could get without those things, but it's not optimal for me so I wanna be clear that I don't think it's inherently wrong. Own some sort of home gym, equipment, or especially now a lot of people don't have access to a gym obviously because they've all been closed for many months. And I've seen some people use that as an excuse to. I'm going to stop working out until my gym opens up again. That's yeah, that's why it's funny. I've actually worked more since my gym closed. Because I got on like this thirty day on Youtube and it's just. Pretty much like a pull a bar. Some resistance bands is all is all you need. Max Yeah. You don't need a lot. and I've been sharing a lot of my homework outside I. DO during this time on my instagram, but one of the I mean I. think that so I'm really excited about this. I bought a jump rope first time I'm thirty eight years old I in my life, John like twenty four. yeah, I like. This is like a totally new thing for me, but I've been having a blast learning how to jump rope and now I'm like actually I've gotten really good at it, and it's an amazing form of exercise. It's not only so good for your, but for your cardiovascular system for your lymphatic system burns a tremendous amount of calories. It's amazing for your brain. I mean the fact that I'm now like you know rewiring, you know air quotes my brain to know how to do this new thing. Let me, ask I've always wanted I saw a guy jump roping in a parking lot the other day in my my first thought and maybe me. Being cynical was like. Why don't you just jump? Why do you need the rope? Maybe hopefully minimalist well do the pro. The Thirty Day program there is one there's like certain days where you're supposed to jump rope, but the trainers like. If you don't have a rope, just sit there and imagine that's I actually do that I just. Be like. Ryan check it out I'll be like. That's amazing. You know me I would trip on it. I fell off my Peleton a few weeks ago. Had No balance. But anyway back to the to the jump rope How long do you do that for I've been doing it for a while. At first I was only able to do it for like you know five to ten second increment now. I'm able to do it for like. Bursts of minute, and and it's really hard to do that. and I can't do any of those tricks like you know I'm literally just like hopping down, but But Yeah I'm I'm getting better at it I'm able to kind of like you know. It's more automatic for me and and it's just it's an incredible. Again it's amazing for your brain. It burns a huge amount of calories more so than you know per time interval more than running than biking swimming. It's an incredibly F efficient way of working out also So that's a great one you can do. There's tons of push up variations that you can do I have a counter in my kitchen that you know forms a right angle I've been doing dips on that I've been doing. Air Squats I also recently have taken boxing which I think a superfund always challenging myself. You know like learning new skills. I think super important so I think the lesson to learn here is. If you WANNA, get by with no equipment wants whoever you can absolutely have a phenomenal workout every day you can do pull ups on, you know whether it's a monkey bar across the street at a park or Iva. PULL UP BAR. You Perfect poll bars twenty thirty bucks right and I use it every single day. In fact anytime, I go to the bathroom. Why does make? Make sure I'd do six. pull up slightly because it's right. There were bathroom doors and as I. Come back also on your average day. Even if I don't work out I've done sixty or seventy, pull up Sunday, just be just for the sheer fact, it's become a habit right, so you can do push ups. PULL UPS regular squats without weights. I have a weight vest so. So I'll. I'll use that for pull ups, push ups and squats as well. Those are cool lunges. You can do mountain climber you can. Do you know there's a huge number of variations of the plank that you can do? I'm generally we won't you WANNA. Do you WANNA focus on compound movements? So you're which are going to allow you to get the most bang for your buck. Buck your so if you have if you happen to have a laying around, you know, do less of the BICEP curls, and instead you know maybe do bent over rows. If you can or lunges or even, air squats, I. Mean Working Your Lower Body I think is crucially important, just because you have a huge amount of muscle mass down there, right well, speak for yourself. I mean and not even not even be personally. Relatively you know like our legs are just they're the largest. They make up the largest muscle group in our body like the lower body, and they're actually is just bring it back to the brain, which is of course you know my passion. There's a really good a strong correlation that has been shown that you know having stronger legs actually is great for brain. Health there seems to be a correlation between a higher performing brain and strong legs. Right, we hope you found value in that standalone quickey episode. If you enjoyed it, and you want more Ryan and I record a long form, maximal episode each week over at the minimalists, private podcast, find all the details and all the good stuff including additional private podcast episode every week over the minimalists dot com slash support.

{bonus} An Odds and Ends Episode

"Hey there this is Reagan I wanted to give you a quick update that if this episode downloaded automatically into your podcast APP and you are thinking it's an episode you've heard before because it's entitled Pods and ends it is not rest assured that anytime a new episode shows up with an odds and ends title it's a new episode to get caught up on things that I haven't been able to include in a previous episode I hope you enjoyed this one and I look forward to bringing a regularly scheduled episode to you next week if your skin doesn't know weather to break out or wrinkle if you're caught between planning the Third Grade Class Party and researching retirement plans or if you want to work out at the idea of cross bit makes your forty something Knees Jake you've come to the right place welcome to this UN millennial live I'm your host Reagan Jones and welcome to today's show if you've been listening to the podcast for awhile you know occasionally I like to dip in and do an odds and ends episode to get caught up on things that I haven't been able to share with you in the past I think today's episode will be fairly brief but what I did want to take this opportunity before we get started to let you know about a couple episodes that are coming up for the future I have received a ton of requests for episodes this year and you can always give me your requests by visiting this millennial life dot com slash guest ideas or drop me a note in the facebook group at facebook dot dot com slash groups slash this millennial life but to touch on what's coming your way over the next few weeks we will have an episode about fuelling teen athletes elites or young athletes not just teens an episode I'm very excited to share with you an episode about getting a breast lift not mind but a good friend of mine an episode on on Micro blading and episode on sleep recovery and then an episode I promised to you in last week's odds and end ending the game of thrones episode also on deck coming up this year an episode on the importance of magnesium in your diet and episode on what you need to know before getting a divorce unlikely an episode about an alternative to mammography and then I am working on gathering information about natural deodorant options these again many many of which are topics that you specifically have asked for now one episode that I may or may not be putting into full-scale l. production is a recap of my experience with sober September sober September was not as far as I knew at the time it September first an an official challenge being hosted online I simply decided on September first that I wanted to see what life would be like not drinking any alcohol for for an entire thirty day period I posted about this in the facebook group so if you are a member of that group you've already heard me share some of the background here I have had had conversations one on one with actual listeners of the listening audience who have asked me about it and wanted to know my experience I'm not gonNA fill up today's odds and end and with all of that feedback because I think it is something that deserves a much more introspective approach and comprehensive detail I will tell you up front right that I want everyone listening to this podcast in that I don't have anything personally against alcohol I'm never going to turn this podcast into one that tries to convince you that if do you enjoy a good glass of wine at the end of the day that I think you shouldn't be drinking that nothing could be farther from the truth I will tell you however that in my own life alcohol had become something that occupied a place of importance that it probably didn't deserve it had become very habitual not really excessive certainly not interfering with my my life but as I have detailed for you many times something that depending on the season and depending on how much I was consuming or how frequently could very much disrupt by I sleep what I learned in the Thirty Day period that now actually has extended I guess sixty days because I have probably only one night in the last two months he's had a full glass of wine if you can believe it is that there are a lot of other things that I didn't realize that moderate alcohol consumption was adversely affecting in terms of my overall health things like my ability to recover from workouts things like feeling my best workouts and things as simple as is not having clarity of mind in work situations or day today so keep in mind that this may be a topic coming up for the future ideally I'd like to hear from you if it's something that you would be interested in especially if you have any interest in doing a group challenge where as a group we take on a thirty day period and support fort one another to really just see where alcohol fits in in our lives on dry January is one that's awfully popular I will tell you that one of the things that I did take away from my experience though is I think that towards the end of a thirty day challenges he is really honestly very good to be confronted with the situation that you would ordinarily narrowly be drinking a bit through And I say that because I have found that going through experiences like press trips and conferences is and travel without any alcohol on board is a vastly different and for me better experience so I will stop there there and just let you know that sober September again may be one of the topics coming up either for this season or next and again welcome you to provide me your feedback or your questions and if that's not something that you WanNa do in the group always know that you can email me personally and I read every email that I get Reagan at this millennial L. Life Dot Com and I will do my very best to respond to you personally okay moving on to a topic that is less related alcohol and more related to food don't let you know about a new product that I saw this last week while I was in Philadelphia at a food and nutrition conference those of you who are registered dieticians listening to this will recognize that fancy is the largest annual conference for registered dietitian nutritionists in there is a huge expo that goes along with that often I walk that expo floor and see a lot of products that aren't a good fit for me but occasionally we'll find one that I am really excited about and this may be a product that you all have seen but it was new to me the and it's not a partner that I'm working with them not sponsored by this company just happened to have the opportunity to sample some of their products it's Kodiak cakes and you may be familiar familiar with Kodiak cakes from pancake mixes and waffle mixes and Muffin mixes and I tried those in the past they were an okay fit for me but being such a baker that I am I usually we have recipes that I rely on for baking and pancake making that are my own however I had the opportunity to try their oatmeal packets As a refueling to a bar three class that was hosted by honey company nature nate's also very impressive company that I met while I was at Vinci and the OATMEAL packets from Kodiak cakes blew me away and here's why in the packets there are twelve grams of protein eighteen and in the individual cups both of which are available at most national retailers fourteen grams of protein now you all have heard me talk here on the podcast and read my blog about my experience counting crows I am not currently devoted to counting all macro of everything that I eat however in in that process of counting crows and beginning to transition from a less cardio based workout regimen to one that is more weight training based I continue can you to be reminded that protein consumption is so crucial to building muscle mass and protein consumption spread out over the course of the day so not just eating a bunch of meat at night which is what tends to be the case for most Americans really spreading protein consumption out over the day is so important and I often find for myself that the morning meal is the one that is the hardest for me to get protein e on I mean I love Yogurt and I love milk and I love eggs but I don't necessarily love prepping a lot of eggs in the morning and there's only so much milk that I can drink get me up to a twenty to thirty Graham recommendation for protein consumption that was covered in I believe both the protein bar episode and the protein powder episode if you haven't listened to those dive back into your podcast APP after this is over and listen to those for a good refresher so being able to eat a packet of oatmeal pre-workout which is high in both of the things that I'm looking being four high in fiber and high in protein was a welcome addition to my selection of options so I

My podcasting prediction for 2020 - 1KP0078

"A lot of people spend their time wondering what the next year or the next month is going to bring today have a prediction for you for twenty twenty and you can check back at the end of the year to see if I'm accurate. What's happening podcasters? This is one thousand podcasters. I'm Brian Insinger. I'm a podcast and a podcast and I wanna see you be successful with your podcast West. This particular episode is part of the Thirty Day Solo. podcast challenge with David Hooper. He's over at big PODCAST DOT COM as well as national podcast post month. I have links to both of those in the episode notes and part of the challenge for today is to make a prediction about next year and it's really timely because earlier earlier this week I was listening to another podcast that I enjoy. It's called better podcasting. It's about it's a podcast about podcasting for hobby podcasters and they H.. Challenged me and the rest of their audience to pick something to focus on for our shows for two thousand twenty. I'm still working on some of that. But it got me thinking about retrospectives and goals and predictions and it's very timely. Because I get a chance to talk to talk about this today with you. I'm I'm I'm really looking forward to this. And one of the things that I think is really interesting is the idea that goals may or may not be important. I tend to think think goals are important. I didn't used to like them especially if I think about like the corporate environment. I didn't really like goals. Because they felt like something that was going to be used news than later to determine whether or not I I get a raise and that was always a little bit uncomfortable but I do think that goals are important because they help us define how we want to change change and grow and some of the things that we're going to focus on and that I think is really timely for me if not for you definitely for me because I've got some decisions to make. I've got some stuff that I'm working through trying to figure out for next year and I've got some potential changes I'm thinking through for example with the engaging nations. Show that my flagship. I'm show been running nearly six years. But it's becoming harder and harder for me to get the editing for that show done in addition to the client editing. That I'm doing and some client launches and this particular podcast and making tutorial videos and leading a couple of facebook groups that are focused on podcasting. All those things take time not to mention. I have a fulltime fulltime job in a family and I really kinda wanted to those because those are those are important to me. So I'm thinking about some ways to approach that and I'm thinking that perhaps I might go to do the dreaded as often as I can get one done approach to the engaging missions show that can produce an episode. I went when I can't I won't because it's becoming hard to juggle now. This is a difficult decision to make. And it's not one that I'm fully set on but it's something that I'm thinking about doing for sure I'm also thinking about ways to you. Take on more client launches and some client editing because they're frankly that helps bring in money to help support my family and help support my habit of podcasting so I want to do more of those and it also gives me the opportunity to help more people get their messages out there some thinking about got some ways to do that. I'm actually in the process right now for pairing I'm working through some more. Streamlined ways for me to approach launches. Because it's easier once I've got some stuff going to start tweaking that rather than trying to design a process in a vacuum so I'm working some of that stuff right now trying to prepare for next year and and I'm not sure about this. I'm not sure if this is all going to work but what I do know for sure is that if I don't change nothing's going to change and then I won't be able to help more people but to that point you know I'm not really one hundred percent sure. If what I'm going to do as work is going to work. It would be ridiculous accused of me to think that it absolutely will be but at the same time my opinion and my approach of whether or not I think this will work is really important because if you remember back to psychology class if you took that in college you probably learned about something called the self fulfilling prophecy. We attribute a quote to Henry. Ford I don't know if it was his or not but the the idea that if you think you can or you think you can. You're right. Well that can happen with this kind of stuff too. If I think that I cannot succeed need I will probably not try probably not try as hard conversely if I think that I cannot fail then I might try all the harder or I might just just assume that I can float through. I haven't really worked all of that stuff out but the important part here is that not only do. I have to have some goals but I have to have a reasonable expectation that those goals are are achievable and that I'm working toward those the question for you though. I've got some predictions for you and I hope. This doesn't seem too presumptuous. But I do have a couple of predictions one. Is that if you don't have a podcast already and you don't start a podcast. You're not going to have one. And this is a little bit of me throwing down the gauntlet. If you want to have a podcast you're going to have to start one. You're never going to have one. That's just how it is and to take it a little bit further. If you don't change change anything you're going to stagnate and you're going to be left behind and this is something I think about constantly because I'm always wanting to get better that what I'm doing hosting a show definitely gonNA get better. That's part of why I'm doing this thirty challenge getting better as an interview. I spend time researching my guests and trying to become become a better interviewer editing shows. I hang out in communities with other editors where I can learn from them and share what I know. Pick up ideas and tips and tricks and tools all of those things. Because I don't want to stagnate and be left behind and I also don't want that for you I want for you to if you don't already have a podcast. Justin you want one. I want for you to have one and if you want to continue to grow and to become better at what you're doing I don't want you to stagnate and be left is behind so that's what I'm hoping for you as well is that this conversation will help spark something in you. That will allow you to become what you're wanting to become or to do do you're wanting to do what about you. Though I've talked a little bit about my prediction what what predictions do you have for twenty twenty either for yourself or for me or podcasting testing in general.
