Episode 5: Good Enough In Practice

Janine and Shannon truly embraced the concept of “good enough” when creating this podcast. In this episode we talk about how we went from idea to launch in less than two months (with five episodes recorded!). It’s been a great lesson for us on the value of letting go of perfectionism.

We let it be easy when it came to:
  • Choosing the podcasting app we use to produce the podcast (we’re using Cast — it’s a super simple way to get started!)
  • Selecting topics
  • Selecting the name of the podcast
  • Deciding what had to be in place before we could launch
  • Creating a logo for the podcast
  • Rehearsing our conversations (or not)

Listen to the inside scoop on how putting “good enough” into practice allowed us to make creating a podcast fun and easy!

Note: This was originally scheduled to be Episode 6, but a technical difficulty made us temporarily shelve the original Episode 5, so this turned into Episode 5. (The other episode will be published later.)

Episode 3: Backsliding

Everyone backslides. Shannon and Janine see it all the time in their clients (and we experience it ourselves, too).

In this episode we discuss how backsliding is part of the process and how important it is to be kind to yourself when it happens.

Other topics include:

• What to do if you backslide
• How to avoid backsliding in the future (spoiler alert: daily habits can be really helpful)
• Janine’s effort to get back into Todoist after backsliding with it
• How being kind to yourself is good self care

Episode 2: Rewards

Janine and Shannon discuss the how helpful it is to reward yourself for progress (as opposed to success).

When you reward accomplishing steps along the way to achieving your goal, you keep yourself motivated. Rewarding yourself will help you do more in the long run.

Our discussion touches on:

• Why we don’t have to suffer to succeed.
• Creating a doable to-do list (and why that’s important)
• Coming up with ways to reward yourself
• The value of taking a break
