Break Your Own Rules

Jody Maberry Show Episode 263 Break Your Own rulesIn this episode of The Jody Maberry Show, I break my own rules and recorded using only my iPhone.

When I was with Jeff Noel this summer in Glacier National Park, Jeff wanted to record short podcast episodes using only the iPhone. I was hesitant at first, but we recorded the first episode sitting next to Grennell Glacier, and despite some initial technical difficulties, we produced a quality recording. It is a good reminder that sometimes it works out when you break your own rules.

As Jeff and I reflected on our travel in the wilderness, I realized recording episodes on the iPhone could allow us to record anywhere, anytime. It’s important to be open to change and to constantly strive for excellence. This means that you should be willing to learn new things and experiment, and you should also be willing to work hard and push yourself to be the best you can be.

Jeff Noel and I have been exploring ways to work from anywhere.

Here is what we have learned:

You can work from anywhere if you’re willing to break the rules and think outside the box.

You can work from anywhere if you’re willing to take some risks. This may mean recording a podcast on your phone in an unusual location, as Jeff Noel did, or it may mean something else entirely. The important thing is to be open to new ideas and to experiment with different ways of doing things. With creativity, you can find ways to work from anywhere – even if it means breaking some of your rules. So go ahead, explore different ways of working, and see what works best for you. You may be surprised at how much you can accomplish by thinking outside the box.

Sometimes it’s worth it to do something, even if you don’t get anything tangible out of it.

This could mean doing something for the experience or the learning opportunity, and it could also mean doing something simply because it’s fun or because it’s a good memory. Whatever the reason, sometimes it’s worth it to do something, even if there’s no immediate payoff.

One example of this is traveling. It can be expensive and time-consuming, but it’s also a great way to see new places and learn about different cultures. Another example is taking on a new hobby. It might not be something you’re immediately good at, but learning something new and challenging can be rewarding. So next time you’re considering whether or not to do something, ask yourself if it’s worth it for the experience or the learning opportunity. You might be surprised at how often the answer is yes.

It’s important to be open to change and strive for excellence constantly.
Do not be afraid to do something that you are not comfortable with. You should not be scared to experiment and try new things; this is the only way to truly learn and grow.
