In this episode of $30k questions, a podcast miniseries aimed to help you explore and implement money-making questions, I tell you about the do-tell cycle so that you can do your best at mastering this in your life and business. How often are you doing? How often are you telling? Do you balance between the two? Let’s talk about it. 

Today, I share with you why flipping between working heads up and heads down can help you out.

  • Doing and telling is a bipedal back and forth between doing work that creates results and putting yourself out into the world while telling others about it. 
  • Intentionally framing these cycles orients you in a healthy way on where you want to put resources at any given time. 
  • This way, you can get into a rhythm and groove, focusing on one thing at a time to remove the guilt of ‘not doing enough.’ 
  • Getting into a do-tell cycle keeps you from spreading yourself too thin and allows you to prioritize tools and resources that are useful for each cycle. 
  • Whether you’re working solo or in a team, ask yourself, “Are we doing right now or are we telling? Is this a doing project or a telling project?”
