In this very first episode, I’ll be sharing a simple step-by-step process on how to start your very own passion project — and show you how I followed that process and launched this podcast in just 6 weeks.

THIS EPISODE IS FOR YOU IF…
You have a biiiig graveyard of ideas you never really got around to doing.

Today, I’m going to share with you the general process I usually take to make sure that the ideas that are most important to me don’t end up in that graveyard.


Topics discussed in this episode:

This episode is a little bit meta – this podcast was the main case study and story I used to demonstrate this step-by-step process in action. Hopefully, by showing you behind-the-scenes of how I work, you are able to get a more tangible idea of the spirit of this podcast.

  • How to stop getting distracted with too many ideas
  • What you need to determine to serve as the North Star of your passion project
  • The two types of goals you need to set before you begin any project
  • Step #4 is a step that most people skip: But it is the most crucial step if you want to create purposeful projects
  • How to avoid procrastination and perfectionism (and a side story of my own messy battle with procrastination)
  • What you can do to become more accountable and to follow through on your idea
If you’re anchored on your 1 Big Why, it’s so much easier to quiet down all the other thoughts and distractions. Click To Tweet
