Episode 240: Are You Just Fitting It In?

Show Notes

Do not email Vicky about pickled eggs. Please. But you can email her about how to grow vegetables. In this episode, we find out how often Joe is wrong (once, today, about pickled eggs) and discover that Vicky is incapable of planning her vegetable garden. And then our intrepid podcasters get to the good stuff: the reason we can’t write, can’t finish stuff, and struggle to “find the time”. This episode will fix it all for you. Enjoy!

Key Points

  • [5:40] Are there any gardeners out there? Did Vicky kill her cactus?
  • [9:25] Vicky really needs a foolproof gardener plan. Also, she wants to grow potatoes.
  • [11:00] Remember, people need help and no matter what your skill set is, you can help other people bridge the gap.
  • [11:35] Vicky is serious! She needs help with her garden. DM her!
  • [12:05] Do you have a hard time sitting down and writing your book?
  • [15:00] There are three reasons why you might be procrastinating on your writing.
  • [18:15] You don’t have accountability when you’re writing for yourself.
  • [18:50] Don’t get to the end of the day regretting that you didn’t get your things done!
  • [22:00] Joe threatens Vicky with no food if she is procrastinating or holding off on a personal deadline. Get yourself someone who will do something similar.
  • [23:05] Make it a habit so that you feel weird if you don’t do it; like when you don’t brush your teeth.
  • [25:40] You can write a book in two months. You can do it if you just put in the practice!  Mentioned in This Episode:
