Have you ever made a thing you’re really proud of?
Like, you can tell it’s good even though you’re your own worst critic and of course there are things that could be improved but DAMN, you did a good job?
That would be this episode of the That’s What She Said podcast.
Finally — at episode 190 — I’m pulling out the YOU MUST LISTEN TO THIS card.
This episode took weeks of percolating and hours of discussion (with actual other humans!) before it ever got written down, edited, or recorded.
Let’s talk about craft, the rise of the instant, and the death of meaning.
Let’s talk about how to avoid buying the ‘perfect’ solution that always, always falls flat.
Let’s talk about why pro athletes get so much attention and praise, that time I absolutely fell flat at a speaking gig and never recovered, the jaguar that lives in your chest, and how to be truly happy in an economy that sells your own unhappiness back to you again and again. And again.
Let’s talk about all the ways you’ve tried to paper over or speed up life’s hard parts, when the goodness is often stuck somewhere in the mess like a Double Dare flag buried in whipped cream and slime.
If you only listen to one of my podcasts, make it this one.
If you dig it, leave a review and a tip, then let me know what you think! Send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll talk about all of it.
With so much love —
P.S. I hate having a coach.
