In the last few days I have been playing with video live streaming. I posted earlier about my first video and the follow up by others who seemed genuinely excited for me. Trying something new opens up and engages the mind. By taking the leap, trying something new, a whole new door opened. I don’t know anything about video and in an instant, I have the brain of a 10-year old picking up a Choose Your Own Adventure for the first time. The feeling of something new, the not knowing and feeling safe in the hands that you’re on a journey of discovery.
By trying to learn something new, we put ourselves in a win-win scenario. If I make a mistake, well, I’m new at it. Who can blame me. If I take to it, well, I may become an expert and find a whole new avenue to work in. There is no downside.
This weekend, I’ll be doing more experimental livestreams around the Premier League, but its not really about the football… its about learning in the context of something I love. Easy.
