Have you seen Avengers: Infinity War yet? If you haven’t, why are you listening to this dumb ole podcast. Go watch this movie!
Those of you still hanging around are in for quite a treat; you get to hear THE Jeremy Moore in a record-setting two podcasts in a row. I’m not saying it’s good, but he is present! That’s right! The Vanmaster has managed to make it to two consecutive podcast recording sessions. Will he make it a turkey? I’m not holding my breath.
Before we jump into the show, I want to give you a bit of an explicit language warning. Usually Kevin earns the coveted iTunes explicit tag with a random cuss, but today Rob opens the show with a pretty tawdry discussion of balls.
Rob takes his first turn helming the good ship AIB and immediately runs it aground in the bay of balls. As an entrepreneur, how do you make sure important tasks get carried out in your day-to-day? Thankfully, Rob switches the “spinning plates” metaphor, but I fear the damage is already done.
Kevin recommends picking two to three projects that are mission critical and making sure that each one moves forward every day. This is quite a bit easier since he has a James to take care of a lot of the little stuff.
Jeremy takes that idea and breaks it down into selecting two or three rocks or milestones a day. Then, if you get one of those rocks done, you can feel good about yourself. Jeremy is obviously a man who believes in aiming for the stars and hitting the moon.
James explains that he and Kevin are using Trello to help organize what they need to get done on a daily basis. It sounds like Kevin needs to start doing a better job of pulling his weight; poor James winds up doing a lion’s share of the admin stuff around the Saturday Drive office. (I promise James didn’t pay me to say that. That being said, hit me up on Venmo, James.)
Rob pulls from the book The War of Art by Steven Pressfield, suggesting that the best way to decide what to do on any given day is to select the thing that you dread the most. The theory is that if you’re avoiding it, it’s probably best to get it out of the way.
If you’re in the mood to listen to some other, probably more entertaining podcasts, Kevin recommends checking out MaximumFun.org, a podcast network dedicated to shows about comedy and pop culture. Some of his favorites are My Brother, My Brother, and Me, Bullseye, and The Flop House. If you’re looking for quality content, and honestly, if you’re reading this, your taste may be questionable, head on over to MaximumFun.org. While you’re over there, ask if they need a highly qualified individual to write show notes.
Do you love apps? How many apps would you say that you download to your phone every day? The answer: not as many as James. By the time I’ve finished these show notes, James has probably downloaded thirteen apps and deleted fourteen of them. Today, he recommends the Drafts app, which tries to simplify quickly taking notes. The biggest selling point seems to be that when the app opens, you have a new note immediately without the need to navigate.
How do you send money to friends and bandmates? Rob praises the Venmo app as “much better than PayPal.” Welcome to 2018, old man Rob. He also has to humble brag about being in a band and playing the local Bacon Festival. I’d love to go to a festival dedicated to bacon; thanks for rubbing that in my face, old man Rob!
Jeremy recommends Hugh MacLeod as a source of pithy and inspirational quotes and graphics. If you love business and memes, I guess this Hugh MacLeod dude will be right up your alley. I prefer to get my quotes the old fashioned way, from my crazy uncles Facebook posts.
