The Off Season

Back in July I shot several matches, and it seemed like at every match I was having to DQ people for safety violations. After the last match where a shooter reacted unpredictably after the disqualification, I decided to take a break for a little while.

A couple weeks went by, and I decided to just make this break my yearly off season from shooting. I started doing some Google searches from about taking an off season, and things to do during the off season. I came across this post that I thought had some interesting steps to take that relate to shooters as well as other athletes.

I’ve been doing the video watching, as well as kind of doing the “strength” thing. I’m not working out, but I am getting back on the Paleo thing, which I’ve totally fallen off the wagon on the past couple months.

The Q&A Podcast

After a few months of considering my options, I’ve decided that this week will be the last week of Q&A podcast. We originally started the Q&A podcast because we had run out of room in the main podcast to answer listener questions. I’ve just simply run out of time to produce 5 podcasts a week, so I’m going to start answering your questions in the main podcast, just like we used to do.

  1. I totally understand your feelings and burnout. Just a suggestion though, instead of axing the Q&A show, maybe you take a break and then find someone else for some of the show duties. In the past it seemed as if both of the shows were divided up between you and Ben. Since he has gone on to whatever it is he is doing, you have all of the responses and responsibilities. I’m sure you can find someone to assist and provide another point of view on the topics and questions. To me, that’s what made the Triangle Tactical Podcast so good.

    • I’m not sure I’d use the term burnout. I still love podcasting, I’m just spending too much time doing it. Axing the Q&A show, and putting the questions back into the main show will dramatically cut my production time, which is a big plus for me.

      The cool thing is that I’ll have more time to do interviews and get more people on the show, which is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now.

  2. Good move. Q&A show has to be a lot of work, and only really useful to you if it served to multiply your revenues. Even though I started getting your podcasts via Google Play, it was still work to keep up (I don’t have a daily commute, so had to make time to listen).

    One thought for an episode; I know Ben’s off the podcast, and I’ve been following him via other media channels, but I think it would be cool to have him back to talk about his journey to GM. And to do it soon (preferably before he achieves GM).

  3. When you announced you were going to do a daily podcast, I thought to myself “whew, that’s going to be a lot of work…”

    I enjoyed the Q&A show, but completely understand why you’re stopping it.
