Mastering Expertise: 80,000 Hours in a Life - 10,000 Hours Per Career "In this polycast episode, we embark on an exploration of the concept of spending "80,000 hours in a life" and the intriguing idea of devoting "10,000 hours per career." Inspired by Malcolm Gladwell's 10,000-Hour Rule, we unravel the significance of this benchmark in the pursuit of mastery across various fields. We delve into the debate surrounding the rule, considering factors like talent and deliberate practice. Throughout the episode, we examine the implications of dedicating a substantial portion of one's working life to a single career and contemplate the value of lifelong learning. By sharing stories of individuals who have navigated diverse career paths, each demanding its own 10,000 hours, we highlight the benefits of embracing versatility and the transferable skills gained through varied experiences. Ultimately, we invite listeners to reflect on their own career journeys, encouraging them to consider the possibility of mastering expertise across multiple domains in our ever-evolving world. Join us on this thought-provoking journey of skill development, continuous learning, and the pursuit of excellence in the span of a lifetime."

The phases are the various niches/focuses of the brand/channel. I spent most of 2023 trying to balance out a few of them. They evolved in their own rights, and this year I think they have a lot of potential ahead.

Going forward I'm changing how I market PolyInnovator. Yes, it is my personal brand, but the meta-niche has always solely been polymathy. However the main topics have been other, such as the DIY Modegree. It was a form of knowledge management, and then I started my content creation/repurposing newsletter. Which employed my content production system as its main base. Both ended up being part of this holistic PolyInnovation Operating System or PIOS. The niche going forward will be Knowledge Management for Polymaths. It is more marketable, and gives a reason for me to have such templates like the Modegree. Plus it stills gives me a reason to talk about polymathy!
Using the PIOS framework, regardless of tool, for multidisciplinary/polymathic people!
I've been on the move from Obsidian to , after already moving from Notion. It also has come to my attention that perhaps I need to end the PolyInContent series. It comes with a heavy heart, as I really wanted to make it work. Maybe one day it will. For now I'll stick with just blog posts, videos, and podcasts as separate pillars. With some crossover when needed.

I know the plan going forward, it is just simply putting in the work and the execution of it. I don't need any more ideas, I already have too many, that is part of the problem. They need to go out in the world.
In this episode I do my 1st ever in person interview. I happened to be able to do it with a friend from the podcast world. Whom I have at least chatted with on the show before, and went on his show #hacksandhobbiespodcast We talked about GoBox Studio, an endeavor he joined up on.A little bit on his own studio.About AI technology.And just simply riffed off each other's energy! haha I'm excited to share this with you, and I do encourage you to check out the video version. Also he will be on the show for a full Round 2 PolyCast episode soon! I want to thank YAP Media for supplying the booth, and sponsoring the Podcast Movement. As well as, thank Hala Taha @yapwithhala!
I'm actually making some changes to my #Polycast / #Podcast after attending Podcast Movement While I certainly believe that you don't have to necessarily have a niche to be successful, your array of "sub-niches" DOES need to have an organized theme/meta-niche. For example I wanted to start creating my Gaming content arm for PolyInnovator, and I always believed in having everything funnel onto the main YT channel. However the plans I had for gaming content were vast on their own, very generalist in nature, and so by creating a separate channel. I was not going against my philosophy. Rather just giving viewers a better experience to enjoy that type of content. Even if it too is pretty vast like the main channel. I realized that perhaps #thePolymathPolyCast has something similar to do as well. I do (well was doing) a weekly #PolyInContent episode, which is my "Main" series above all else. However due to me moving from Notion, that had stalled a bit. I digress. That series was more about me making a blog post, video, and podcast all in one for each episode. Although when it shows up in the PolyCast feed it looks out of place, despite me explaining it everywhere. I may do random medium length episodes, but they are literally just longer versions of my "Fireside Micro-PolyCast". Meaning I had three things going on, the fireside micro stuff, the medium length polyincontent, and the interviews. While that is okay in my opinion, it seems that it may be wiser to move the PolyinContent into its own stream using a new host (so I can try out someone new too). While just rebranding any short to medium length to ALL be #Firesidemicropolycast episodes, and all long form are interviews anyway.
