Circulation Status
Slow down.
That’s a lesson I have trouble learning myself, but partly due to my conversation with Meredith in the new episode of the show, I have been giving some thought on how to slow things down professionally, particularly around the podcast.
Starting in 2022, the show will go back to a monthly format, though there may be the occasional special episode sprinkled in there, with the right guest or the right topic. That also means this newsletter will be going monthly following the next issue, as the newsletter is tied to the production schedule of the podcast.
I still love doing the podcast, even when the schedule stresses me out sometimes, so I am going to do my best to not feel constrained by scheduling and just release episodes as they are ready to go. This new interval between shows should increase the quality, as well, as I will not feel as rushed in researching, recording, and editing the show.
I hope you enjoy this interview and get some inspiration on how to slow down your professional life without sacrificing quality.
