Causes of Burnout & Imbalance:
1. It is hard to generate money from podcasts and they cost money to run.
2. Difficulty building audiences
3. Technically challenging with audio gear and equipment.
4. Impostor syndrome. With so many podcasters, why bother?
5. Podcasting is becoming 24/7 hobby
Steps to get rhythm:
1. Understand Why & See The Big Picture.
Episode #22 is all about my Why. Why did you start a podcast? If the goal is important, keep reminding yourself.
2. Schedule & Prioritize:
Put everything on the calendar and you will be more likely to do them and it will turn into a part of your routine.
3. Be more self-aware:
What are you good at and what do you enjoy? Figure this out and do more it. Outsource tasks if you can or ask for help. Is your podcast and everything you are doing authentic to you or are you doing something because others are having success? Be you and it will get a lot easier.
