Taking a Weekly Briefly Break

The Weekly Briefly went on accidental hiatus as I've been spending all my time over the past month with the launch of the Focus Course. Now, on the heels of that launch, and a relatively busy year, I'm taking some time off to be with family and plan for the next season of the show. I'm putting a pause to the Weekly Briefly podcast for the next few weeks and will be back in late August. Talk to you then!

WWDC 2015: Highlights and Awesomeness

I'm back from San Francisco and am glad to return to the podcast microphone. Yes, I hear you, I could have taken my podcast rig with me, but I went to SF to meet with friends and peers in the industry and drink delicious coffee and so I had very little time for "work" stuff. I'm bad at multitasking. On today's show I talk about the highlights from the WWDC Keynote (there are many), Apple Music, and my thoughts on Apple's new publishing platform slash RSS reader slash news aggregator, Apple News. Sponsored by The New Uuni 2: Food. Fire. Uuni. The awesome members of shawnblanc.net: Their support makes the work I do a sustainable possibility.

WWDC 2015: Highlights and Awesomeness

Money Buys Opportunity

On this week's show I want to unpack the topic of money. I’ve been asking people what’s their biggest challenge is when it comes to doing work that matters. And a lot of people say money. As in, a lack of money. I wrote about this on shawnblanc.net this past Wednesday. Today I want to share more about my own personal approach to money and how it helps me to do my best creative work. I also want as share some ideas to think outside the box for those who see money as a hurdle for doing work that matters.

4-Day Weekend

Your Best Creative Work

On today’s show I want to talk about doing your best creative work. What does that even mean? Here’s a picture of someone doing her best creative work: She shows up every day. When it’s easy and when it’s hard. It doesn’t matter. She is committed. This is something only she can do. Yet even still, it might not all work out as planned. There is no clear path about comes next. There is a lot of guessing. There is fear. Some days the work is so much harder than others. Some days everything comes together and it’s amazing. At the end of the day, it’s always rewarding. She is telling a story. Every day she is trying to connect with others. Her work is emotional. Relational. There is learning. Teaching. Guessing. Loving. She is a mother. * * * When we talk about “doing our best creative work”, it’s easy to define creativity as “artsy”. Writing. Designing. Taking photographs. But creative work happens in a variety of forms. I was recently talking to a friend of mine who is a pr...

Your Best Creative Work

Avoiding Burnout

Today’s show I want to talk about “learning”. More accurately, I want to talk about how thirsty you are to do your best creative work. Because it takes more than just showing up every day to do our best creative work. And if we focus too much on just t...

Joy in the Journey

The best musicians in the world practice every single day. For hours a day. And they don’t just practice their favorite songs and coolest licks — they practice the techniques and scales and fills that they’re bad at. I studied martial arts for over a decade, and we did the same stretches and basic moves at the start of every class every time. Even after I received my black belt, we were still practicing basic front stance and middle punch. You write a book by writing it. Thinking about it, outlining it, researching for it, yeah you’ve got to do these. But you’ve also got to sit down and write it. Even if you can write 1,000 words every day, you’re looking at a couple of months to write the first draft. Something the best musicians, the martial artists, and writers all have in common is more than just commitment and fortitude. More than just routine. They have a joy in the journey. And while the musician, martial artist, and writer all have goals they’re working toward, the go...

Apple Watch and The Just Checks

I began wearing a watch several years ago — maybe four years ago — because I was tired of constantly pulling my pone out of my pocket in order to check the time only to find myself suddenly checking email, Twitter, etc. I’ve had an iPhone since the beginning. It’s my favorite gadget of all time. Literally for like 8 years this thing has never been more than an arm’s distance away. But the advantages of the technology also bring some disadvantages. It’s not so easy to be bored anymore. Like, you have to choose to be bored. It used to be that boredom chose you — you were somewhere and you were waiting and there was nothing to do and you were bored. Now, you’re never bored. You can see pictures of some stranger surfing on the other side of the world, or get a live video stream of someone’s hike over Tokyo. This stuff is amazing. So I have to be proactive about my boredom and my down time. We all do. Which begs the question of how the Apple Watch comes in to play? For those who...
