Waiting in a long line to watch Guardians.
My boy Ro is inside, chilling with his nachos & cheese waiting for them to start letting folks in.
Guess what I’m doing while waiting?
Listening to a podcast, of course!
What is not Tracked, cannot be Measured.
What is not Measured, cannot be Optimized.
Regular folks track NOTHING.
High performers track EVERYTHING.
It’s totally fine to be in the middle, and improve as you go.
But you gotta start somewhere.
Watch my next few posts on how to track some important things at work and play.

Wish I could be like him.
This photo always lifts up my spirits and the awesome song “I’ve got a pocketful of sunshine” (Natasha Bedingfield) starts playing in my head. And my mood is instantly elevated.
He is a male dog named Vanilla (don’t ask) – the world’s happiest, kindest, sweetest, gentlest, shyest, most loving being. And all he wants is a tiny strip of sunshine from any window in the house, a little food & water, and an evening walk or run.
Never imagined there could be a living thing that had such low expectations, and such a high level of happiness with whatever little he has.
Never complains. Always happy. Always grateful.
I’m not there yet, but I try, every day, to be grateful for what I have been blessed with.

Podcasting is one of the greatest things ever invented.
I personally believe that when it comes to the ability to connect with people on a deeper, personal level, Audio is second only to Video.
And with all the ways already invented every day to interrupt, annoy and distract people – TV, Netflix, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Whatsapp, Hangouts, and on and on… and more ways being interrupted every day, podcasting, in some ways, has become the single most powerful, relationship- and fan-building tool there is – even more so than video.
You can’t listen to the radio show that you want to, when you want to. Whatever is playing when you get into your car is what you have to listen to.
Even with expensive Satellite radio, you only get more channels, but you don’t get the channels on-demand. You can’t get a show on satellite radio to start when you’re ready for it – you still have to listen to the shows on their clock, not on yours.
You can’t be driving and watching a YouTube video (I guess you could, but if you did, then you probably wouldn’t be well enough to be reading this right now, would you?).
You can’t read an online article or a book or a blog post or a PDF report, when you’re driving to work, or walking your dog, or at the gym, or doing the dishes…
Podcasts can go “where no other media has gone before”.
The host of the show – whether they are making you think, laugh, cry or learn – they’re in your ears, talking directly to you, they have your fullest attention, you are focused in on their voice, even if you’re performing a chore.
The power of audio is yet unparalleled.
And thanks to my podcast at SubscribeMe.fm, like He-Man might have said if he had a podcast, “I Have The (Audio) Power!”

DOGPOO: Do Once Get Paid Only Once.
DOSAA: Do Once Sell Again & Again.
You cannot build a long-term profitable online business selling one-time products.
You need to create recurring products and subscriptions.
I have packed my 21 years of experience selling online, into a podcast on how to create membership sites, online courses and recurring subscriptions, at SubscribeMe.fm.
Be sure to start from episode 1. Lots of goodness in the (so far) 54 episodes.
And yes, I made up “Dogpoo vs. Dosaa“.
And in case you didn’t know, Dosa is an Asian-Indian delicacy. If I could suggest you have just one Indian food, it would be that.
So the words were deliberately crafted:
