03 Nov Ep. #97 Feeling Blue
Those that know me/ have been listening to the podcast for awhile, might call me a “Joy Machine”. My default setting is “SPARKLE”… but my ratio of joy to sadness has been inverted as of late. I am deeply sad as I am recording this episode, and that is OK. Stepping into the booth and talking to a microphone was my Minimum Viable Effort and I am so glad I did it, because it turns out, this episode (and feeling blue) is really really important to me. I hope it can be for you too.
In this episode, I remind myself to “feel it first” (before trying to do the thought work to “change” sadness into something else). I also talk about taking a page from the rapid prototyping playbook and aiming for MVP (which probably doesn’t mean what you think it means in this context).
Is this my best episode ever? Probably not, but it is one of the most important because I didn’t beat myself up to make it, and I am not pretending to be any other way than the way I am.
