So to follow up on my post a couple of days ago, I’ve been thinking about it a lot more, and has me energized. Hopefully that energy will lead to productivity on some scale, but it is in process.
Knowing everyone’s daily schedule is a mess… we usually commit ourselves to too many projects, combined with family responsibilities, it can leave one with a dearth of unmitigated “time” to spare. Throw in “The Walking Dead” or a game (MLB Spring Training starts today!) and that “time” can be chiseled down to a few fleeting moments throughout the day.
One area that I saw an opportunity on is my time at the gym. I go to a small gym here in Long Beach, and usually can be found with my headphones in as I work out. Lately, during my cardio workouts, I watch two episodes (about 46 min.) of Cheers via Netflix. While it has been great to see the early seasons of this TV classic, there may be a different/better way to spend my time on the elliptical machine.
“Wouldn’t listening to a podcast be a better use of your time?” was my initial thought… and off to iTunes I went, in search of solid content (yet entertaining enough to help pass the time). My first selection: Online Marketing Made Easy, with Amy Porterfield “How to Find Your Audience, Get Serious About Content and Build Your Email List: An Interview with Marie Forleo”, which I listened to yesterday. For picking a podcast out of the many in iTunes, I think I hit a home-run on the first at-bat. Amy hit on a lot of things that I was questioning myself about, and I’m looking forward to checking out the two previous podcasts, as well as the new ones to come. While the message touches on a lot of familiar points to some, I think overall it is a good listen, no matter what your expertise level is.
I have few other podcasts queued up, and I’ll report back if I find anything that has value to share. Also, if you have a preferred podcast and/or website that has helped you, please comment below.
Although right now, my weekend awaits…!
