There was a time that I didn’t like to write, and now, after a lot of practice and feedback, writing is a deeply-ingrained habit. I never liked to speak in public either, and after years of doing it, I’m beginning to enjoy it. I wasn’t even particularly fond of vegetables, but with practice and some support, I’m happily vegetarian.
Now it’s video that I don’t like.
For my entire life, I’ve avoided being recorded, and avoided watching the few recordings that exist. Yet I want to get better. So when Moyra Mackie, my trusted friend and coach, offered to do a video interview with me, I knew it was time to take a step.
I’ve listed the questions and timings so you can jump directly to one you feel is relevant for you just by clicking on the question. Doing this forced me to listen to myself on video, and I actually liked it. I hope you do too.
p.s. Starting October 5th, there’s a 6-week course that helps you experience a Working Out Loud circle for yourself, get live coaching from me throughout, and receive a 100-page Coach’s Guide to help you in future circles.

32:40 One of the things I enjoy is that as you write and read, you’re clearly applying the things you read and write to yourself, almost as an experiment. You’ve clearly changed quite a bit. How do you see the evolution of John Stepper?
