16 Jul DREAM THINK DO: ASK and ADAPT!
We’re diving into two quick but powerful concepts to help you navigate this wild time. And hey… if we do this right, we can all turn 2020 into one of our best years yet! That’s no small order but I think we’re all up for it. The key is our willingness to ADAPT and pivot (I’ll give you some specific examples of what we’ve done with the show) and to ASK people what they want. This episode is short and sweet… AND we wrap up by asking what YOU want me to focus on as we look to finish 2020 strong! So let’s get to this!
“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”
George Bernard Shaw
“Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.”
“Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.”
“Every success story is a tale of constant adaptation, revision, and change!”
We’re kicking things off with some celebration and gratitude for YOU… the DREAM THINK DO-er!
We’re grateful for each and every download… because each one represents someone who’s willing to defy the odds to DREAM bigger, THINK better, and DO more of what they were put on the planet to do!
Recently, we’ve had downloads from places like China, Russia, and even Kazakhstan! Who knew?
But we also hear from so many awesome DTDers in great places like Iceland, Great Britain, New Zealand, Australia, Canada… and of course… my home… the USA!
We’re grateful for ALL of you and how you continue to invite others to join us too!
It’s been a crazy year so far. Heck… I’m betting we can all agree it’s one of the wildest any of us has ever experienced. It’s shifted so many things. How we work, how we shop, how we eat, how we church, how we congregate and gather… heck… even how we do birthdays and weddings!
Adapting and pivoting have had to become mainstream.
One example is how it’s hit the podcast industry. You may or may not know that many podcasts lost 30 to 50% of their downloads in one week. The week things REALLY shut down and almost everyone started to work from home. Why? Well, as it turns out… most people listened to podcasts while they were commuting and at work. So… if people aren’t driving to work and/or sitting at their work desks… many aren’t listening to podcasts.
Boom. 30 to 50% gone. Overnight.
We got hit by that too.
But… we adapted.
We started to watch the numbers to see where and when people started to listen. Not surprisingly, more people started to listen on the weekends. Also… not surprisingly… they started to listen for a shorter period of time.
So… we shifted. (You may have noticed.)
Now, instead of releasing on Tuesdays and promoting on Wednesdays. We’re releasing on Thursdays or Fridays and promoting on Fridays or Saturdays. We also shorted the average episode length from 45 minutes to less than 20 minutes.
We pivoted. You guys responded.
So much so that although we took that 50% hit… like the rest of the industry… we’re now hitting download numbers higher than what we were experiencing before this virus wildness came on the scene! #suckitcovid
Thanks for helping to make that happen and thanks SO much for continuing to share DREAM THINK DO with your family and friends! We’re so grateful for you!
And hey… that’s one example of some PIVOTS we’ve been experimenting with. How about you? What are some small (or big) changes you’ve been making to adapt and thrive in this weird wild season? We want to hear from YOU! (Comment below!)
Also, as we adapt and pivot… we also want to ASK.
That’s right. I want to hear from YOU!
Because I want us all to thrive in the midst of all the curveballs that 2020 has thrown so far. Heck, I’d love to work together to make it our best year yet!
So… I want to hear from you on the subjects you want me to dive into.
Lately, we’ve been focusing more on MINDSET and INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS.
Of course, I love digging into various subjects under the DREAM THINK DO umbrella. Things like:
- Breaking through fear
- Overcoming limiting beliefs
- Goal setting
- Time management and alignment
Some other possible topics I’d love to dive into with you guys are things like:
- Coaching for leadership
- Coaching for business
- And/or… building a coaching business and what that’s all about
- Branding and marketing concepts
- Online entrepreneurship
- Business growth
- Faith, prayer, and business
- Helping your kids with their goals and dreams
- Goal setting as a family
Those are some of the topics that come to mind… but I want to hear from YOU!
What resonates with you? What would you like me to dig into?
They can be subjects on the list OR… you can suggest other ideas that you’re interested in.
If they fall under the banner of DREAMING bigger, THINKING better and DOING more of what you were put on the planet to do… I’m a game.
So… Let me know!
Let’s shape the show and make the rest of the year amazing… no matter what. Who’s in? I’m betting you are!
