Failure to Plan [STR4P 24]

Failure to plan has been the biggest hurdle in my podcasting “career”. I’m not sure you can actually call it a career, but, I think you know what I mean.

What happens when I fail to plan is that I end up recording an episode of my podcast by myself the morning it needs to be released.

If hearing me talk about how I’ve failed to plan over the last 15 years interests you, have a listen.

You can hear how other podcasters have overcome failure in the Examining Failure series.

7 Ways I’ve Failed at Podcasting Since 2005 [STR4P 21]

Failure is an option. Yes, you read that right. Failure is an option.

We often hear the opposite, that failure isn’t an option, and this gives Christians and podcasters (like myself) a skewed view on life, faith, and success.

The Bible is full of accounts where “the faithful” failed. While many Christians are familiar with a few of these stories, most don’t embrace them.
