It’s week 2 of this 3 week (or 21-day) FB Live challenge and…
… I’ve been feeling a bit brain dead.
It could be that my marathon training is ramping up and all my brain cells have fallen into my feet. It could be that I’m hitting that middle bit where it feels just as easy to give up as it does to move on. It could be all of the above.
I love starting things. Mid-project (like mid-marathon) is where we start to hit that wonder-awful place called “the Grind.”
“The Grind” is a not-so-mythical land where you just have to put one foot in front of another and keep doing the work. The end is not quite yet in sight. You have to trust the process and keep your head down. And work. Also, have fun. But work.
For those of you who’ve joined me for this part of the journey, thank you. It’s fun to see my friends jump online and comment along. I hope you’re learning and enjoying, too.
In this second week, I’ve learned:
– To keep things simple. One topic, 10 minutes. It’s digestible, implementable information.
– To be patient with the technology. Sometimes (especially when I’m not in my home or near wifi) my phone won’t hold a signal and drops the feed.
– To be patient with myself. I was exhausted on Day 13 and totally brain dead. And it shows.
– To be comfortable broadcasting from anywhere. This was the first time I did a “walk and talk” and I felt super self-conscious about walking past others while talking on my camera (phone) in this way. I was also very careful not to get run over by cars while crossing streets. The lesson here: safety first. But trying not to walk into other pedestrians kept me from feeling present with my audience on FB.
If you’ve missed a broadcast or two this week, you can catch up here:
