In This Episode…
In today’s episode I share the mumblings and grumblings that have been swirling around in the back of my mind about the quality of my work in developing my productivity and publishing this podcast. It’s not pretty, I’m not proud of it but I think I may have found an inspiration to help me re-focus.
Episode Show Notes
00:15 – Choosing Podcast topics is getting harder for me. Yesterday’s episode was a bit of a cop out!
01:06 – If I look back over the podcast, it appears to be a collection of random ideas with the occasional theme (eg to do lists, growth mindset, SCRUM).
01:37 – I have started asking myself the question “So what?”.
01:54 – Though I am making progress, I feel my approach is superficial, lightweight and occasionally formulaic.
02:10 – I am starting to feel unsettled and am dissatisfied with the lack of progress.
02:41 – Initially I wasn’t sure what the answer was. However I have invested in a copy of “Deep Work” by Cal Newport.
Deep work will make you better at what you do, that you achieve more in less time and provide the sense of true fulfilment that comes from the mastery of a skill. In short, deep work is like a superpower in an increasingly competitive economyCal Newport
04:43 – I will study this book and keep you up to date on what I learn.
