Last week, I had a session with my leadership coach where I shared my challenge to keep up and produce and publish podcasts on a weekly basis.
She asked me: Does it serve you to publish a podcast on a weekly basis?
I didn't have an answer right away and kept thinking about this question.
So far, I've only been thinking about what's the best way to do it for the listeners. And everywhere I read that a weekly frequency is the best. I've never asked myself: What's a good rhythm for me?
I just tried to fit all the work in and made it work so I could publish on a weekly basis. However, I felt stressed. And I used all my focus and energy for the podcast production and couldn't do anything else, not even promote my podcast. Or meet people for coffee. Which is fine for a while. But it's not a sustainable long-term solution for me.
One of the entrepreneurs told me in a mastermind session at our co-working space:
"You can make the rules. That's the advantage of having your own business."
I fully agree. But I needed this reminder. Often we just do it one way without questioning whether the way serves us and our needs.
Now that I have more experiences and learnings I can change the rules.
Going forward, I want to question the rules I adopt, listen to what suits me and make my own rules.
