I have to take off a week from podcasting.
The Community is set to finally re-open on Monday, May 18th, with a very big launch after being closed for developments for over a month.
However, there’s an incredible amount of work left to do. Recording 3 or 4 podcasts a week and shipping them with featured images and shownotes is more than a full-time job. There simply was not going to be enough time to re-launch the Community if I continued my normal podcasting schedule.
This is where I had to face a reality: I’m going to have to break my routine.
You’ll hear me face this reality and talk through the impact breaking a routine has on an audience. While I initially felt like I was doing my audience a disservice, I came to realize that it would be an even bigger disservice to neglect taking care of the very things that allowed us to continue providing value.
This episode also takes an interesting turn. I talk about prolific film-maker Casey Neistat who’s been doing insanely epic, daily vlogs for nearly 50 days in a row now.
We talk about overcommitting and what happens when an audience comes to expect an unrealistic output resulting from overcommitment.
Having an audience is a powerful thing. With a relatively modest number of people dedicated to your brand and products, you can easily sustain yourself.
You don’t have to have millions or hundreds of thousands of followers—the beautiful thing about the internet is its ability to bring people with unique interests together. Even if you have a very specific focus, there are a ton of other people across the world that share those interests and that adds up quickly.
Yet, many people worry about narrowing their focus. It feels like you’re excluding a bunch of people! It seems counter-intuitive: What if the niche dries up? What happens if interest suddenly goes away?
The good news is, you don’t need to be afraid to niche down. If you’re about the people and serving their needs, you’re going to adapt naturally without even noticing it. You might suddenly realize you’re in a different industry because you followed the people—that makes you immune to an industry going away or drying up.
Why grow an audience? This is what growing an audience can do for you…
Do you want to set money on fire?
I don’t think anyone does, but most people do something that’s equivalent.
Workers are interrupted once every 10.5 minutes on average.
That’s not even the worst part: studies show it takes on average 23 minutes to regain focus.
7-minute interruptions cost you a half hour in actual focused work time.
