Top vloggers who have reached the pinnacles of their career tell us not to obsess over views and relative performance over time and other metrics of “success” in their creative field. But that got me thinking: what SHOULD we obsess over? How do we know we’re crushing it as content creators? What should success look like?

Here are my four measures of success—they’re by no means the only ones possible, but I believe they’ll serve you well no matter what you’re making as a content creator.

  1. Have Fun
  2. Grow in Your Craft
  3. Be the Content Creator You Wish to See in the World
  4. Streamline Your Pipeline

If you’re pushing hard on all four points, good for you! You’re well on your way to becoming a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious creator. =)

Well OK, it’s one of the top “pop up” markets (meaning everyone completely sets up and tears down everything in a day) in the United States which is open year-round. I think that’s pretty awesome. Plus lots of great scenes of traversing downtown Portland in the fall!

We shouldn’t feel guilty about the technology choices that we make. Just be mindful of what those choices are. The real danger isn’t getting addicted to technology. It’s not realizing if we have. So stay aware…but also, celebrate the magic!

We’re all told we need to say No to the things in life that aren’t all that important or meaningful to us in order to say Yes to that which truly matters. But what if you HAVE NO CLUE what is most meaningful to you? What if you are in the middle of a creative slump, an “existential crisis,” or just a transition to a new season of life? Maybe there’s room to give yourself permission to say Yes to that slump, that crisis. Make space for your indecisiveness. Try a little bit of this, a little bit of that. See what sticks. See what resonates. I’m going through this process right now!

Your Valuable isn’t a show for geeks. This is a show for ordinary people who are affected every day by the decisions made by the powerful geeks in Silicon Valley.

Well it’s time to fight back. Welcome to Your Valuable:

Well this is something I’ve never done before! My video show “Essential Life with Jared” and my podcast “The Jared White Show” have joined forces today to bring you a special video edition of the podcast!

Also, why use Vimeo instead of YouTube? Quick answer: OWN YOUR OWN PLATFORM. (Long answer: I like paying for ad-free hosting services built specifically to cater to creators. That’s not what YouTube is.)

Anyway, whether you consume the audio podcast or video format of the show, I hope you enjoy it!

I did something totally stupid…I accidentally erased my iMac hard drive which had a full edit of this video. Luckily I recovered the raw footage, so this is my SECOND attempt at putting a vlog episode together. I visited Bothell, WA — the place my mom wrote a piece of Celtic music for entitled “The Woods of Bothell” — as well as the way cool Gasworks Park in Seattle.

Listen to The Woods of Bothell:

Do you ever feel like a failure? Ever worry you’re not measuring up, that “they” are always more successful than you are? Maybe the issue isn’t that you’re actually a failure, but you’re struggling with the emotions of failure, and that is something we can work with!

One minute, I was strolling through the quaint neighborhoods and gentle parks of west Hillsboro…mere miles away from Portland, OR. Next thing you know, I’m totally LOST in the the woods! Do I ever make it out alive??? You’ll just have to watch this video to find out.

Also another essentialism challenge to help you streamline your life and lose the “guilt factor” when considering which objects to keep and which to discard. Let me know how it goes OK?

This week’s challenge is to practice the power of observation! Learn all about a fantastic awareness training technique I learned from Mindsight by Dr. Daniel Siegel. And of course more Portland awesomeness, more trains, and more coffee! (Yes, Portland has some of the best coffee around. It’s sort of our thing.)
