What’s it like to record a podcast while running? I found out.
When I stop delighting in the work for its own sake, I soon stop working altogether. When I let website analytics or podcast download stats serve as my primary motivation, discouragement festers, and I soon stop writing. It’s happened a half-dozen times before.
Yes, accelerating playback may save you time, but it also has nasty side effects.
When I ignore my desire for affirmation and appreciation and instead simply focus on expressing something genuine, blogging and podcasting are much more fun.
