Podcasting tasks—the things you and I do to ply our craft—fall into one of two categories:
- Intrinsic tasks are things that you’ve internalized. They either come with proof or they are a part of Your Way of podcasting.
- Instructions-required tasks are everything else. Things you were taught about podcasting but still aren’t quite sure of. Assumptions you've made from watching other podcasters. Checklist or guides you acquired in a class or online course.
Got it? Now, once you’ve identified all or some of the instructions-required tasks you follow, I want you to abandon them.
OK, maybe don’t abandon everything all at once. You still have a podcast episode to produce, after all! But yeah, abandon at least some of the recipes you’re following. Especially the ones you aren’t sure about.
Not every recipe is great. Take a critical look at the podcasting recipes you’re following and choose at least one to abandon. Focus on the outcome that recipe was supposed to achieve. Chances are, you might have a better—or at least more creative—way to get to that goal, creating your own recipe in the process.
