Not too long ago, I changed the way we introduce each episode of the podcast. If you’ve been listening for a while, then you probably know what that charge was. But it wasn’t as if I just abruptly decided to make that change. I gave it a lot of thought.
Becca Ribbing knows a thing of two about giving things thought.
She’s the author of The Clarity Journal, so clarity is something she givers a lot of attention to. The change to the way I kick off each episode was the result of me getting clear about what I wanted to achieve at the start of the show, so I wanted to talk with Becca about the importance of clarity and mindful productivity.
She learned meditation at a young age – I mean really quite young – and she shares her experience with meditation during our discussion. It’s definitely played a factor in how she approaches things – including meditation itself.
In fact, her mention of “noticing” harkens back to a conversation I had with Rob Walker on this podcast – before the changes to the introduction were made.
Although we spend time discussing this simple and small change to the beginning of my podcast episodes, we do go well beyond that during our conversation. I believe the bridge to the rest of our conversation started off when she said this:
“When people area ready to jump to a new level, they don’t always take stock of everything that’s going into it.”
And this is where Becca believes The Clarity Journal can help.
It can help when you’re stuck. It can help when you are aware you need a change but aren’t sure what the next step – or steps – are. (It’s also worth noting that you may not even know what that change is yet!)
Becca goes into how she came up with the concept for The Clarity Journal, the thing that a friend told her that she absolutely needed to hear, and she reveals whether or not she was someone who journaled elsewhere before she created her own journal.
I hope you enjoy this conversation. It’s been in the works for a while and I’m glad I can deliver it to you now.
