How To Pull Off A Month-Long Creative Project


I failed to do it last year. I was determined to do it this year.

In this episode of an ADEQUATE podcast, recorded two days after finishing, I look back briefly in hope that it might inspire you to do something like it – or even not obviously like it.

For your added entertainment, this episode was recorded against the clock – I had no idea how long I would get. I largely held my nerve.
