280: Why You Should Engage in a Community Even Though You Think You Don’t Have Time
By Sean McCabe and Ben Toalson
You've heard us talk about the Community at seanwes, but this episode is really about engaging in a community of any kind. If you don't have time for a community, are considering joining a community, are part of a community, or run a community, this episode is for you! Time is scarce and we don't have a lot of it. You may feel like you barely have time to read this sentence, let alone engage in a community. But a community isn't a time sink, it's a time investment. What you invest in time with a community, you get back in clarity. It's not that you can't afford to spend the time, it's that you can't afford to spend years heading in the wrong direction! If you want to be successful, you need to get around people who are successful. These people can help you get where you want to go faster. Find people who are already doing what you want to do and position yourself around them. Just like you would schedule time to meet with a mentor or a coach, schedule time to interact with a community. This is where you will get clarity and breakthroughs.
