How do we define ourselves? How do we make ourselves distinct from those around us? These questions have been substantial on my mind as I developed the idea of this podcast. I feel as if I am behind on the podcasting renaissance, just a bit.
The Renaissance was a time of significant discovery. Many have already discovered podcasting, and they are years ahead of me on their journey. I cannot help but feel like I am in the third or fourth wave, scrambling to make sure I get on the boat altogether.
There are fantastic podcasts out in the world. Brilliant ones, fascinating ones, informative and entertaining. How do I define mine from all the rest?
I concluded two aspects are defining this projects. One, I need to do what I love. That has been the standard advice I have heard the majority of my life and while researching podcasting & authoring.
Two, I needed to be myself—flaws and all, and not worry about if this podcast makes a mark in the renaissance of podcasting.
Once I grasped those to concepts I was free to continue. I will never admit that I am an expert in anything I discuss on the podcast, I am a lifelong learner. I will never lead others to believe I am perfect; I am far from that truth. I will only attempt to be defined by the joy of the journey & the understanding I am not perfect—and I will always have plenty to learn.
