Episode 290: What if…?

Show Notes

Join Vicky and Joe as they talk ludicrously expensive oak doors, poo disasters, and why shoes in the house are UNACCEPTABLE. Then marvel at the smooth link to this week’s topic—the power of What If? What if you tried this thing? What if... you wrote your book? Tune in and get the pep talk you’ve been waiting for.

 Key Points

  • [6:10] Casa Dingle update! Lots of poo happening.
  • [9:10] What if you made your own door? What if you just….did?
  • [11:35] It can be so easy to compare yourself to what you can’t yet do, but look at the progress you’ve made thus far.
  • [17:20] Give yourself permission to do something badly!
  • [19:10] When was the last time you wrote without a purpose? Just for the fun of it?
  • [22:10] New year, new me. There’s a better way to go about it.
  • [22:20] What if you wrote your book…this year? What if?
  • [25:35] Don’t compare your insides to other people’s outsides.
  • [27:30] Need a community? Vicky’s got another writer’s round opening up for you!
