This Is The End. So Start. #1501
Yep. This is it. The last episode of Trent365!
And the message I want to leave you with, as I depart is...
So often we talk ourselves out of starting something because we worry that it won't be any good, or that nobody will like it, or that you won't be able to keep it up.
It doesn't matter. Just Start.
If it sucks, make it better. If that's too hard, then stop.
It's ok to stop too.
Whether you stick with it for a day, a week, or OVER 1,500 episodes...you will learn from it.
You will learn about the process. And you will learn about yourself.
The one thing we are not getting any more of is time.
And one of the most toxic emotions you can have is regret.
You don't want to wake up one day and realise that you've run out of time and you regret not trying.
Thanks for the ride!

Celebrating The 1500th Episode Of Trent365! #1500
WOW! 1,500 Episodes. That's a lot.
This whole show started with the idea to publish one piece of content every day...for one year. That's it.
And here we are now...1,500 consecutive days later.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who has tuned in over the years to listen, or watch or read any of these episodes.
As I say at the end of every episode, 'I do thank you for your time...'
And I genuinely do. Thanks.
NOW...to the big announcement I promised...
Tomorrow's episode...Episode 1,501...
Will be the LAST episode of the show!
Yep. I've decided to hang up the mic.
Well, the answer is the same as it was for why I started the show in the first place...no reason.
I just feel like it's run its course. That's all.
So why not just end today...on 1,500?
1. I wanted to end on a real show, consistent with the theme of the show. Which has always been about a daily thought, idea, insight. I didn't want to just finish on an anniversary type show.
2. When people ask me in the future, 'How many episodes of that show did you do?', I can now honestly answer them...
'OVER 1,500 episodes!'
So, I do thank you for your time.
And I will be again (one last time) tomorrow...

Ultimately It’s Just You Vs You #1499
"I don't care who is doing better than me. I am doing better than I was last year. It's me Vs me."
Michael B Jordan (actor)
Of course, it's probably an attitude that won't help you much if you're trying to climb the corporate ladder.
Because there, it is very much about You vs The Other Girl.
But if you can get to a place where you're genuinely satisfied with being a bit better than you were yesterday, last week, last year, then you're going to be happy.
And after all, isn't that what it's really all about?

Leave It Until The Last Responsible Moment #1498
We are constantly being pressured to...
DON'T MISS OUT!
Whether we're buying something online or just making a decision of any sort, the sense of urgency is often overwhelming.
So, next time you feel the pressure...Stop. Take a Breath. And ask yourself...
What's the Last Responsible Moment at which I really need to make a decision?
Because if you can actually wait a little longer, in that time, you may be able to get some more data, some better information or even come up with a better plan.
FOMO is real. Don't let it get you!

Consider Insightful Meanderings vs Focussed Missions #1497
Focussed Missions are great.
That's how we get stuff done.
They're not always the most insightful journeys....but...
They're not designed to be.
However, when you choose a meandering path, you have time explore, engage, unravel, etc.
And it is precisely in those meanderings, that powerful insights can be found.
The key to success in life is to ensure that you have a nice balance of Focussed Missions and Insightful Meanderings.

Crypto Doesn’t Scam People. People Scam People. #1496
Those who don't really spend much time in the Crypto / Web3 / NFT space, often take the view that it's all just one big scam.
It's a dangerous place. Full of scammers.
And with NFTs appearing to go on a bit of a bull run right now, we are again seeing a number of big scams being run on the community.
But let's get real for a second.
NFT projects themselves aren't bad. The people using them to run scams are bad.
Sure, it's often easier to run a big scam in this space, for various reasons.
Ultimately, however, always remember...
NFTs don't scam people. People scam people.
NB: As always...Do Your Own Research
