I find podcasting a beneficial format for digesting content. From weekend binge listening to Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History to Distributed by Matt Mullenweg and all topics in between. There’s a lot to be gained and not just for entertainment purposes. Legal podcasters have a strong voice and I want to make sure LexBlog is doing everything we can to help them.

I enjoy running. In fact, it’s fair to say I’ve been running most of my life. When I was younger, running was a requirement for soccer conditioning. That meant every summer I was running in the evenings with my dad prodding me along. I hated it and would do all in my power to express these feelings to him before each run.

I recall a time in my late teens early twenties when my sister confronted me about my conduct and somewhat wild behavior. At the time, I was extremely annoyed at this intrusion. Looking back, I’m glad she said something. She was holding me accountable and letting me know I was not moving through life unnoticed. She loved me, and that’s why she was willing to make things a little uncomfortable. She was willing to ignore the norm of my current behavior and address the truth of my problem.

Before you ask for readers, write the article you wish you could read. Before you ask for the sale, create the product you wish you had. These were the two quotes from James Clear’s 3-2-1 weekly email that caught my attention this week.
