Be Obsessed Or Be Average

Be obsessed or be average

I just posted a new video on my YouTube channel. I finished listening to an audiobook called Be Obsessed Or Be Average by Grant Cardone. Although a good book, I liked his The 10X Rule more.

What I’ve improved in this video is the nagging microphone cable. It’s pretty short, so when I put the camera (aka my iPhone) on the stick, I run out of cable, so I couldn’t tuck inside of my shirt. Well, no more. I was able to find and purchase an extension cord (it was just a few US dollars), so now the wire won’t dance around while I am making the video.

In this video I was able to keep the reading to a minimum (if any), but there’s still a lot of progress to be made. I also liked the fact that this was recorded in one take. Meaning, walked to the peer, setup the camera and microphone, “shot the scene” and I was done.

I already finished listening some audiobooks, so I have to pick the right shooting place, and get the camera rolling.

The 10x rule by Grant Cardone

After a short break on my YouTube channel due to 2 books that didn’t meet my standards, and since I stopped reading after 40-50 pages, I was able to pick up the pace with Grant Cardone’s The 10X Rule!

Again, in my humble opinion, I was able to improve my video. This time by shooting with the new iPhone (what an improvement from my old iPhone). I also dropped my WhoAPI pitch that was first at the begining of the video, and then later at the end of the video. It just doesn’t add value to the video, but it makes it much longer. I’ll try to deal with this in the future, but for now I’ve decided to proceed without the hard pitch inside these short videos.

I already have some improvements planned for my next one, but let’s first enjoy this one.
