New Content, Less Stress – Vlog Sunday 14
October is in Full Swing
The change of the seasons is fitting right now because it has been a time of change for us on From the Attic. As we shift from number goals to strategic action, we’ve managed to create new content and less stress. We’ve also created a much more enjoyable journey down the side hustler’s path.
If you missed it, check out episode 4 of Workout Wednesday. We again feature material from our friends at Voices.com.
Life Killed Productivity
This week has been (and continues to be) a big test in how we juggle the everyday struggles of life, and or efforts to hustle. These are the moments that we need to appreciate the amount of time we’ve used to get to this point. We also need to remember the lesson of how life can totally ruin the best plans in a moment’s notice.
An hour at the dentist and small catastrophes at home cut our productivity in half this week. The time I usually spend user testing or picking out auditions to read, recording the auditions, and submitting the auditions was filled with annoying pain and mitigating effects of a household crisis
If you’re wondering, it is not a people problem. No people drama.
However, This did not stop us from getting anything accomplished. Even with all that, we did manage to get some new content ready to go jst for you!
New Content, Less Stress
We did manage to start implementing one of my content strategy goals for this month – recycling material. I was able to put together 11 pieces of content from previous Vlog Sunday episodes to highlight some of the commentaries I share with you every Sunday.
Why is this a good thing? While it may not technically be “new” content, it is more content that may very well get missed with the length of the weekly gathering here on From the Attic due to most of our short attention spans and a need to talk and talk… and talk each Sunday.
Also, turning our focus away from numbers and toward growth through content and interaction has been good for reducing the stress and anxiety of trying to meet goals this month. Only halfway through the month, I can tell the considerable difference in the lessening of stress and weight of having terribly lofty numbers goals.
It feels as if it was the right decision to go for strategies and actions rather than numbers. The stress eliminated will keep us from burning out or giving up the long game that is the side hustle.
