It was a shower thought idea

Bruno Raljic @brunor

I'm not a podcast guy. I'm not a youtube guy either. I'm not a recording guy. So, how did this happen?

I'll tell you how it happened. I'm kicking myself out of comfort zone, that's how it happened. I believe one way to make personal progress growth is to leave the comfort zone.

I've decided to start sharing process with you fellow indie hackers.

I wrote the main motivation on https://brunoraljic.com/podcast if you want to check.

I'll keep the general milestones here, and if you want all the juicy things, you can subscribe for the newsletter.

In short words, I have a remote casual talks with my guests and will be uploading it to YouTube. I'm creating a buffer of 3 episodes (2 recorded so far) and then I'll go public about the details who will be the guests. So far I can only share the episode topics.

Ep 1: Give what you want to receive
Ep 2: Communities before product
Ep 3: Newsletters are never out of fashion

This is a new thing to me and a funny journey. I will share ups and downs, observations and things that worked for me.

    Kicking yourself out of your comfort zone is a great way to learn and grow.

      But be very careful with it as for you eventually may give up (nobody wants to be out of comfort zone forever).

      1. 1

        There are two ways of being in comfort zone again.

        • stop doing things so you move while your comfort zone stays the same
        • embrace it and your comfort zone is moving/expanding while you're remaining your position
