Blogcast 41: Popular Work or Important Work?

With today’s blogcast, we bring you something new, an audio podcast.  Today’s podcast touches upon the difference between popular work (like the Rolling Stones) and important work (like you and me). I hope you enjoy.

Check out the podcast below:

To read the original article, click on the title: My Daughter Asked Me If I Am Famous.

So to summarize:

  1. There is a difference between work that is important and work that is popular.
  2. Popular work is usually superficial, and appeals to a lot of people, whereas important work is essential, and is appealing to a smaller, more focussed audience.
  3. If you do your work to change other people, if your work is important enough, word will spread, and you’ll have all the attention you need.

Good as usual but I fine your videos are more impactful.

I love “different strokes for different folks.” The podcast episode I find more impactful because I am not distracted by any visuals.

Thanks – We continue to make adjustment but we feel we are moving towards what we want. I’m making a short list now of some desired guests that I can host for some conversations. Stay tuned – and thank you. DMW

I’m glad you said so – we will be bringing back video I promise, but you may have to endure some audio only for a couple of weeks. Video will be back.

Hi Dennis, as a fan I will take what I get. Financial Advisors need you. Apple will like you when you speak with them, but they may not need you. Audio is useful. The blog with video gives me a feeling of connection I do not get with the audio only. Again, as a fan I will take what I get and be grateful. Thanks

Wonderful – well stay tuned we are going to mix up the medium a little and I’ve recently made some steps (and investment) into making the video a little better. Delighted to have you along for the ride. Dennis
