0:36 – 2:25
The story behind today’s episode – the first of a three-part series!
- Check out my full interview on The George Mihaly Show.
- I talked about that experience in a previous episode called Stepping Outside of Your Comfort Zone.
Our Conversation About Regular Output
2:25 – 14:18
The reasons I like weekly output as a container for growth, and how I go about sticking to a weekly publishing schedule.
- Where I focus my consistent output: Verbal To Visual. (In addition to this show of course!)
- Similar to facilitative anxiety is the concept of comfort zone, growth zone, and danger zone, which I talked about back in Episode 15.
- Why I like weekly: if this week bombs, I’ve always go the next one to do better! That reminds me of Seth Godin’s analogy of unlimited bowling.
- I’m working on getting back to the roots of my career in sketchnoting by also posting new sketchnotes of other people’s books/podcasts/talks to Verbal To Visual, like I used to do over at The Graphic Recorder.
14:18 – 21:15
A few more details related to my weekly workflow.
- Another reason I like a weekly publishing schedule: it aligns well with societal norms and routines already in place. I like enjoying my weekends with friends and family, having completed a full cycle of creative work!
- Here’s a sketchnote of what my weekly workflow used to look like (for making sketchnote videos at Verbal To Visual).
- Here’s a video of my current workflow for creating sketchnote videos.
