18. Dustin Elliott - My biggest regret of the Podcast
This episode of the Why 2 is Podcast is a very a special episode and something I haven’t done as of yet on this show. For the first time on the podcast, I want to turn the microphone around on myself and revisit the last year of the Why 2 Podcast awhile discussing some important topics for the year ahead.
More specifically though, I wanted record this episode because, as I reflected over my 2017 year, the podcast came under the microscope. In that, there were some wins, some failures, some mistakes, more than a few cringeworthy moments, some great learnings, and a few regrets about the podcasts. Seeing as the best time to address them was at the time, and the second best time is now, better late than never I guess!
For this, I wanted to take you back and explore the origins of the podcast through a quick narrative explaining a particular thread of my life where the idea for the podcast originated from. And as a part of the previously mentioned reflection and through some wonderful conversations about the podcast with many of my listeners, I have become more clear about what the podcast is and what I want to achieve.
The biggest one is a much clearer Mission and Vision which I talk about, as well as introduce a few new ideas that you will see over the coming months.
If you’ve been listening to the podcast from 2017, I want to thank all the love and support I have received over the last 9 months. And if you’re new to the podcast, I know that this is the podcast you need to hear.
I believe that there is no bigger tragedy than someone with capacity and potential to do something great, but doesn't. When they wait too long to take those first steps, or worse, don't take the steps and their ideas and potential impact goes to the grave.
