More Planning Isn’t the Answer

1/15/2018
More
It’s tempting to spend more time planning, but “the only shortcut to your destination is through the field of failures.” If you’re doing something new, more planning isn’t going to get you there faster. In fact, it’s just going to slow you down, overwhelm you, and burn you out. Because, if it’s something new, you can’t know all the outcomes. You must get to work quickly, prototype, test, and pivot as you go. – Russ Turner is a lucky husband and father of 1.75 (one on the way). He’s a...

I’m getting distracted by the shiny object and off purpose. In this episode I recalibrate and remind myself of the goal—the thing I’m after. I’m not trying to become the next great talkshow host. I’m not trying to build a radio show. I’m trying to be an entrepreneur, to build something bigger than myself. I hope you like this one, it’s scrappy and heartfelt. – Russ Turner is a lucky husband and father of 1.75 (one on the way). He’s a recovering wantrepreneur and the host of Don’t Listen...

Shoot For 1, Not 10

1/9/2018
More
Every day has 10 gems. If you shoot for 10 (and you’re forcing it), you aren’t going to get 3 or 4, you’re going to get zero. You’re better off “shooting for the hill that’s right in front of you and hitting that, and then going for the next hill.” This episode is inspired by my thoughts on why I struggled my first pass through the seminar, and it’s because I was trying to get all 10 gems out of each lesson. Get one gem every day and you’ll have 365 at the end of the year. – Russ Turner is...

I’m back in the belly of the beast and overwhelmed, without enoguh hours in the day to do important work. The answer? Make the time.

Earn the Right to Judge

1/7/2018
More
Are you spending too much time focused on what other people are doing? Many are quick to judge, to slam and slander—it’s a judgement epidemic. The cure? Spend a disproportionate amount of time working on yourself. Then you at least earn the right to judge. But probably, by then you’ll have a ton of empathy and won’t even want to. – Russ Turner is a lucky husband and father of 1.75 (one on the way).

The grace period is ending and life is about to get busy. I’m excited to share this one with you because it’s such an important topic for anyone who wants to do something meaningful.

So Good I Can’t Sleep

1/4/2018
More
I’m excited to share this with you. I couldn’t sleep last night because of an idea, and so I got out of bed and recorded this just to get it out of my head. These are the moments that I live for, when an idea comes that’s so good “…that you can’t sleep—you’re that passionate about that it’s just going through your head non-stop and you’re thinking about all the scenarios.” When an idea this good comes, get ready for the resistance. – Russ Turner is a lucky husband and father of 1.75 (one...

Let It Flow

1/3/2018

When you’re creating, you need to let it flow. Most of it can be garbage, but if you get one pearl it’s worth it. This is a lecture to myself to stop being afraid and keep the conscious, rational brain out of the way. “You might just get one thread of an idea… it’s the one seed that you can plant and that idea can grow from there. – Russ Turner is a lucky husband and father of 1.75 (one on the way).

Focus on what is essential. What are the essentials? How can you ruthlessly limit important non-essentials, and then how can you automate them? What questions can you ask yourself to keep focused only on the work that matters. And more on how to avoid decision fatigue. – Russ Turner is a lucky husband and father of 1.75 (one on the way).

Commit to the Long Game

1/1/2018

If something is worth doing, you must do it. Commit to the long game. “It’s difficult to get over the guilt that you’re spending time for no return in the short term.” You have to shut that voice in your head up and follow your gut. It’s hard. This is for the musician playing to an empty room, the photographer posting to a handful of followers, the entrepreneur creating for no one. In the beginning, you’re doing the work completely for the purpose of the project. – Russ Turner is a lucky...

Entrepreneurship Is Hard

The basic needs are all met, and people are after deeper needs. So how do you figure out what you can actually do to add value? “Sitting in a cave and designing isn’t going to work, and just asking people what they wan’t isn’t going to work because they don’t even know what they really need. And so what you really have to do then is just create create create, put it out there, and look at the results.” – Russ Turner is a lucky husband and father of 1.75 (one on the way). He’s a...

If you’re a parent, this one is for you. I’ll read you a crappy “poem” I wrote last night that was to capture the feeling I was having.
