Sometimes I challenge myself to work through a repetitive process in a different and dramatic way, just to see if I learn anything from the experience. A recent example of this was changing my publishing workflow for my startup’s vlog:
But yesterday’s personal vlog was captured, edited, and published entirely via my iPhone 11 Pro Max (these names are so dumb). I didn’t have to but I wanted to add this constraint and see if there were any insights or lessons or… whatever-the-fuck you might get out of doing something out-of-the-ordinary.
So… did I learn anything from the experience? Nope. Nada.
And that’s life.
Thankfully, I still get a meaningful output, which is why I continue to try and experiment and do things.
