67 - "Finish" —PAO: Mr. Perfect cutting food in a kitchen with an invisible cloak on

We talk about "Finish" by Jon Acuff https://www.amazon.com/Finish-Give-Yourself-Gift-Done/dp/1591847621 Great book with tips about finishing work I'm good at starting, bad at finishing. I don't usually have writer's block, but I certainly have finisher's block. By that, I mean that I'm able to outline and outline and outline a bunch of ideas. And even get to drafts of things. But then actually finishing the thing and releasing it becomes a challenge. We discuss hiding places and noble obstacles.Wally talks about how he can get caught up editing a certain point of a video. But we also discuss that video editing work for a client deserves perfectionism more than something like a blog post does. Picking between good and bad is easy, between good and good is hard. This is where it's a noble obstacle. If I want to finish editing and scheduling this podcast, I need to edit and finish these notes. That'd be good. But I'm tempted to just leave and head to the gym, because that's also good. And it also gets me away from the resistance I feel toward finishing these notes. One tip to finish: set a timer. We don't talk about this tip specifically, but it's what I'm using to cut the goal down to something that can be finished. I create a memory palace room to remember some of the tips:Mr. Perfect cutting food in a kitchen with an invisible cloak on

67 - "Finish" —PAO: Mr. Perfect cutting food in a kitchen with an invisible cloak on

66: "Quitter"

Our arms still hurt from patting ourselves on the back for returning to the podcast. The book of the week is Jon Acuff's "Quitter" https://www.amazon.com/Quitter-Closing-Between-Your-Dream/dp/0982986270 It's about passion. We talk about both sides of the 'follow your passion' argument. We are both in a place doing work that we're passionate about. It doesn't mean there aren't parts that don't feel like work. There are also things we're passionate about that we weren't able to turn into careers. Here's the best book against the idea of following your passion: Cal Newport's "So Good They Can't Ignore You" https://www.amazon.com/Good-They-Cant-Ignore-You/dp/1455509124 We batched a couple episodes. We were going to try to get to 4 episodes. (One for each of Jon Acuff's books: Quitter, Finish, Start, Do Over.We didn't finish all 4 episodes, but we did finish two. So an episode is scheduled next week for Jon Acuff's "Finish". Okay I set a timer to write these notes and the timer is up. I think this is better than not having notes at all. But I'll set a longer timer next time.
