Recently on an recording of Fishing Without Bait podcast (Episode 56, still upcoming as of this writing) we talked about how many people get in their head that they need to join a gym to improve themselves. They buy the shoes, and the outfit, maybe even some equipment or a yoga ball at home. But the neglect to put in the work and get started.
Sometimes when people start their Podcast, or video content, they go through all of the guides, watch the webinars, buy the equipment. But don’t put in the work and get started.
We’re all good at coming up with ideas. I’ve had a few. But if you don’t execute, it’s just a nice fleeting thought. Sometimes you get started, but let things get in the way. Maybe you do all the setup, and realize you really don’t like running on a treadmill, or trying to figure out a weight machine in public. Or talking to the “public” on a microphone.
You don’t learn if you don’t reach out. Projects have started as a thought and were done the wrong way until we cleaned things up. Clients have known they want some content, but not sure what to do with it until part way int the project. When we started Podcasting, there were no rules to a “good Podcast”. When we delved into 360 video, the rules are still being written and tested as it gains popularity.
But if you don’t get started, you don’t even have a chance to become the inevitable expert.
