422 – Creating A Resource Knowledge Base

by Cliff Ravenscraft on October 16, 2015

In this week’s episode of Podcast Answer Man, I share a recent idea that I to create a special notebook, in my Evernote account, to keep track of all the valuable insights that I gain from either my own experiences, the books I read, the podcasts I listen to, etc.

The idea is that I wanted to create a knowledge base where I can store these valuable insights for later use, as a resource, when teaching on topics that I routinely address in my own coaching, content creation, and development of other products and services.

Have you ever tried retelling an inspirational story that had a profound impact in your life, that you heard years ago, only to forget half of the details and where you originally heard the story? It is my hope that this new resource knowledge base will help me track and easily retrieve such valuable insights down the road.

As an example of the type of notes that I’m taking, I shared some insights that I recently gained from listening to Season 5 Episode 9 of Michael Hyatt’s This Is Your Life podcast.

Also, I shared two audio clips that I pulled from an interview that Michael Stelzner did with Seth Godin on his Social Media Marketing podcasting.

I hope that this episode may inspire to you consider creating your own system for tracking the valuable insights you gain from the content that you consume.

Happy Thanksgiving
I wanted to take a moment and tell you that during this Thanksgiving holiday, I am extremely thankful for each and everyone of you who have been a part of the Podcast Answer Man community.

I was originally going to take the week off this week, due to Thanksgiving, and next week due to the fact that I’ll be on vacation with my family. However, I know that I recently took a week off, just two weeks ago, while I was out of town speaking at the Platform Conference. This on top of the fact that there isn’t an episode of the Serial Podcast, I thought I’d go ahead and put together and episode for you.

Journaling For Blog Content Strategy
In this episode, I shared how beneficial journaling has been to me over the years. Recently, I’ve fallen in love with the Day One App for iOS and Mac computers. I’ve been journaling like crazy and publishing nearly everything I’ve written on my Tumblr account at gspn.tumblr.com.

I share how I’ve also been using this content in my social media channels like Twitter and Facebook. More importantly, I’ve shared how this app has actually got me back into the habit of blogging as well.

In fact, here are the links to the three blog posts I mentioned in this episode:

  • The Quick Question Blog Post
  • Creating Content That You Feel Called To Create
  • A New iTunes Description for Podcast Answer Man

    michael-hyattAn Interview With Michael Hyatt
    Also in this episode, I share a conversation with my great friend, Michael Hyatt. Michael shared his thoughts on journaling and the benefits that he has seen as a result of the practice. We also discussed how he, also, is asking himself the question “What do I want to be when I grow up?” Michael shared his process for how he’s moving forward during this time of seeking clarity for the future direction of his brand. We also talked about the upcoming launch of his Best Year Ever Program.
