I have been following Seth Godin for a long time. I have read all his books and read his blog daily. He just has the ability to get to me (and I know millions of others), so as they say, if you find something that just does the trick for you, keep doing it! Back in late 2018, I heard about this podcasting on-line course that he had designed with Alex DiPalma called The Podcast Fellowship. It was like if a bee had stung me. If I register, I can have a podcast… in a month? Hmmm. Since I was a child, I have liked telling stories, talking to people and inspiring others. When I thought about it, I even remembered that I would play pretend about interviewing others! In any case, I had been clear for a while that I needed a creative outlet and without knowing why, there was something about the idea of having my own podcast that REALLY EXCITED ME. So, I threw a coin in the air, Heads I do it, Tails I don’t (yes, I do that sometimes!).
It was Tails. Yes, you are reading right, Tails. I do the coin toss because I know that by the time the coin is spinning in the air, my heart is already wishing for a specific outcome. So, decisions are made even before the coin lands in my hand. The follow-up act is doing a “coup d’état” to your mind and finding the courage to step out of my comfort zone.
Back2Basics – Reconnecting to the Essence of you was launched in January of 2019 because of my feeling that we spend our hours ‘connected,’ but we are drifting away from real human connection. Especially to ourselves. We are allowing the world and its noise to get between us and our ability to stay true to our essence, to pursue our passions and to live mindfully.
You can listen to Back2Basics in ALL Streaming Platforms, I hope you enjoy it, and if you do, please Like it, review it, and share it. Pay it forward, and it will come back to you!
