Weekly Update: Week Two Hundred Twenty-Two

Current Personal Project: Reading Books about Entrepreneurs and Sharing What I Learned from Them via Blog Posts and Audio Podcasts

Metrics (since 4/1/24):

  • Total audio recordings published: 71 (+8)
  • Total blog posts published: 91 (+7)
  • Average recording: roughly 14 minutes (+2) for a biography or autobiography

What I completed this week (link to last week’s commitments):

  • Read the autobiography of Sam Zell
  • Had four additional feedback sessions: I exceeded my target by one
  • Compiled and sorted feedback from sessions completed the week of 6/17/24
  • Drafted questions I want to answer for every book I read


  • Audio content changes: I lengthened each recording by two minutes and tested increasing my energy level by using lots of hand motions as I record

What I’ll do next week (holiday week):

  • Read one biography or autobiography
  • Write seven blog posts and record seven audio posts
  • Compile feedback from sessions completed the week of 6/23/24 and identify insights
  • Attend podcasting conference
  • Start reading one of the books about storytelling that I purchased


  • No asks this week

Week two hundred twenty-two was another week of learning. Looking forward to next week!
