Over the course of this podcast, Shannon and Janine have made some commitments to changing various things in their lives, inspired by insights in various episodes. In this episode, we update you on how (or whether) we’ve managed to do the things we thought we’d do.
Discussion topics include:
- A tornado in Portland!
- Our (new) commitment to keeping a list of these commitments so we don’t forget about them
- Janine’s re-energized knitting and Shannon’s happy t-shirt drawer
- How it’s okay to change our minds
- How the problem with a bad memory is not actually having a bad memory but rather worrying about having a bad memory

- What Shannon does when she can’t remember someone’s name
- A workshop Shannon’s planning to offer in Phoenix about embracing good enough in your writing or creative practices
