    S2 E4 - How Stress and Depression Always Seem To Come Together in My Life. My Attempt to Make Sense Of It #500recordings

    S2 E4 - How Stress and Depression Always Seem To Come Together in My Life. My Attempt to Make Sense Of It #500recordings

    Hello everybody - today I reflect a bit on how the stresses from life for me can sink me into depression. Yes, I have had depression and times in life where things have been difficult and a struggle. It's very hard to say that you've have experienced depression because at time the root cause of you depression could be fear of acceptance. One of the root causes or triggers of depression for me comes long running stressful environments. Being in long term stressful situations make me feel that I have to be 'on' all the time even when being on is very difficult to do. My goal of today's reflective introspection is to attempt to identify triggers and patterns that cause me to become depressed and what fears prevent me from living the truly happy life I want and should be living.

    This is an intimate topic for me and I hope to explore more of these types of personal topics but one of my fears is that people with use deep information against me to hurt me. Thank you in advance for continued support and I hope that me sharing about my depression, triggers, and how I attempt to cope, can help others. If you have ways that you cope with depression that may be helpful please share as well.

    Cheers,
    -Patrick

    S2 E3 - Burnout is Real. Trying to Start My Day With Happy. Incremental Goals Achievement #500recordings

    S2 E3 - Burnout is Real. Trying to Start My Day With Happy. Incremental Goals Achievement #500recordings

    Hello all, I hope that everybody had an enjoyable relaxing weekend. I know that I needed it.

    Recently I have been suffering from a common theme in the startup world of burnout. Burnout can occur for many reasons but I share how incremental goal setting and resetting your mind and how actually sleeping help me to be more productive. I also challenge myself to seek happy news in the morning to see the effect it has on my mindset and mood for the day.


    500recordings challenge continues as it was off to a slow start - (re: burnout), but we will accomplish this goal!!!!

    Cheers Everybody!
    Much Love ----
    Patrick

    S2 E2 - 500 Recordings in 2018?!? You Sir Are Mad.

    S2 E2 - 500 Recordings in 2018?!? You Sir Are Mad.

    Some might think that 500 recordings is crazy. It is. In 2016 and 2017 over that time period I recorded close to 55+ podcast episodes. It was amazing to get to this point, but in my mind it's just the beginning. It is my personal opinion that the best way to get good at something is continued practiced effort.

    Here is the challenge I am setting for myself. Record 500 pieces of audio by 12/1/2018. Help me stay motivated and accountable to the goal.
