It’s been a crazy time of year for me with the Holidays right around the corner and trying to stay on top of everything, and if you’re a creative business owner, then you understand. With the help of my mom, I try to stay focused and think positive. If I feel myself start to worry more than I should, I quickly redirect my thoughts to something more productive. I recently stumbled across this post that Kyla Roma wrote on her blog. I’ve never really listened to podcasts before, but with her recommendations and tips, I’ve officially been introduced.
I often find myself sitting at my desk, drafting table or sewing machine and I realize that I’m in complete silence. No radio, no TV, no iPod – nothing. I actually enjoy the quiet at times, but it’s nice to have something new to listen to as I work. The podcasts can be quite inspiring and keep me focused on positive and useful topics. With music, I’m able to tune it out much easier and then my mind goes crazy with all of my to-do lists! Eek! The podcasts give me a break, so I appreciate that in the busiest of times.
Now, I’m not saying that I’m anti-TV or music as I work. I love them! It’s just that sometimes I feel the need to switch it up a bit and this is a great way to do that. I appreciate Kyla taking the time to gather some recommendations – very helpful for a podcast newbie.
Kyla’s post isn’t just about podcasts, it’s about pinpointing your passion and living it each and every moment. Maintain your focus and you will continue to move forward doing what you love. Now, back to my crazy-busy life!
