If you follow my blog at all you already know that I have become a fan and follower of Seth Godin (one of my first readings every morning is his blog). One of the ways he has inspired me is that he has helped me realize that my writing isn’t likely to be, shall we say, a modern masterpiece with every post.
I wish, but seriously, no.
But I am learning that’s OK. I’m also trying to wrap my head around what this means for other projects, both my own and those at work.
Where I’m really running into the Resistance is in the next steps of my self-proclaimed video project Leader X.0. The vision was to present a series of short videos from much longer interviews (the first one is here). It seemed like such a good idea at the time….it still is.
I suffer from a plethora of content, though. My interviews, of which I’ve done five so far, range in length from 25 minutes to an hour. There is an enormous amount of goodness there. But I know that I need to go through, mark them up, and “slice and dice” according to some kind of coherent plan. I have been stymied up until now by the size of all this stuff and the fact that I feel my video editing skills are still pretty rudimentary.
Still, I know it’s doable. So I shall…..watch this space….and thanks for waiting.
Oh, while my next post is in process, enjoy this Leadership interview by my friend and colleague Teri Wiegman:
