Recorded in January 2019 - Episode #1 has never been published, until now.
What are you afraid of?
Are you afraid of failure?
Does the fear of failure trick you into believing that perhaps perfection is the goal?
Does fear prevent you from starting?
Why do people have great ideas, but do nothing with them?
I'd like to introduce today's episode as something that although was a bit of a failure at the time, was simply the first attempt. And I thought it would be important to show all of you an example for attempt #1. And to encourage you to keep trying at whatever it is you have a vision for.
What you are about to hear is Podcast Episode #1, that was never released. Why? Because it didn't meet my expectation, and I was embarrassed, or perhaps scared of failure, scared of what other people might think, those other people being you, and sometimes are not actually afraid to fail, we are afraid to BE SEEN failing. Think about that! It is not missing the shot that is scary, it is being seen missing the shot that is scary.
So, this episode is for me. It's my turn to be seen missing the shot. Even though this was my very first shot, I was too afraid to play it, so I'm going to lean in and play my failure for you.
This was recorded in January of 2019, before I knew anything about podcasting and I was just experimenting.
Before we jump into it. I have 2 thoughts that would encourage you to embrace.
#1 is the concept of TRYING:
TEN STEPS TO INNOVATION!
- TRY AGAIN
- TRY ONCE MORE
- TRY A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY
- TRY IT AGAIN TOMORROW
- TRY AND ASK FOR HELP
- TRY TO FIND SOMEONE WHO CAN HELP
- TRY TO FIX WHAT IS NOT WORKING
- TRY TO EXPAND WHAT IS WORKING
- JUST KEEP TRYING UNTIL YOU SUCCEED
#2 is to frame life as an experiment. How can you fail if this is just an experiment?
