Bitesize Calls to Action
Sometimes, all you need is the smallest of prompts
Lockdown has been the perfect time to get into podcasts.
Surely, we are the slowest of adopters … yes, my name is Barrie and I am behind the drag curve. We wrote about it recently — at least we shared what we’ve been listening to; to be fair, you’d probably been listening to it already.
This week’s podcast discovery is the ‘Little Challenges’ series by Katie Elliott. It is a series that offers practical tools, ideas and inspiration to “make the messy business of being human just a little bit easier”. Bite size — less than half an hour at a time. Not too big a commitment but packed full of flavoursome titbits.
Adventures in Behaviour Change
The home of 'Adventures in Behaviour Change', the Little Challenges podcast.
There’s always that slightly awkward moment when you discovered a rich vein of content that has been around for quite some time.
Where do I start?
Yeah, ok, I could start at the beginning, you bluff old traditionalist.
Or dive straight into an interview with someone we know.
There’s always a third way … so first up, Rob Moore, whose business is behaviour change; he uses marketing techniques for good. This is about guiding our conscious thinking towards the things we know we should be doing more of — like listening to engaging and inspirational podcasts. This feels very much like Katie Elliott’s field too and so you are treated to a gentle but energised to and fro about practicalities and the tricks you can play with your mind to move yourself into a space where ‘doing the right thing’ uses your sub conscious to becoming increasingly intuitive.
Great start. Where next?
Charlie Gladstone … perfect. We’re fans — supporters — friends, even. The Good Life Experience is a regular source of inspiration and Charlie’s Mavericks Podcast usually has him firing off the questions and guiding the conversation. This episode sees Katie and Charlie — both previous speakers at DO Lectures — spark off one another in a discussion with ‘confidence’ as an underlying theme.
My notebook page has a series of bitesize gems to feast on:
People remember how you made them feel.
Constant acts of kindness can change people’s lives.
Impatience is a virtue.
Say what you are going to do … and do it.
Lots to get our teeth into.
