Managing expectations

Yuvi Zalkow, author, developer, video creator, and podcaster, is in Brendan’s apartment and shares his experience with failure and persistence.

When starting a new project, how does one decide what format to do the project in?

Each format can lead to different feelings of overwhelm. Hopping from one to another can also be fatiguing.

What should one do about having to take time when podcasting?

It’s OK to not podcast, sometimes. Instead of framing it as “taking a break” from the podcast, another option is to think of the podcast in terms of seasons or series, where there will inherently be downtime to recuperate.

Take care of yourself out there.
