Soundtrack? Playlist? Don’t get caught in the semantics. Whether you are on an 8-track or you’re on Spotify, the soundtrack Joe’s talking about is the one in our minds. How do you ditch the songs that have been on repeat and create the perfect playlist to accompany the epic story telling he talked about last week.
WHAT IS A “SOUNDTRACK” AND HOW DO YOU CREATE ONE?
What is a soundtrack and how do you create a new soundtrack? Jon Acuff, author of Soundtracks: The Surprising Solution to Overthinking, recommends the following:
1) Retire the broken soundtrack. A broken soundtrack is one that promote the status quo. Ask three questions about the soundtrack: Is it true? Is it helpful? Is it kind?
2) Replace with a new soundtrack by using I am statement. An example of an “I am” statement would be I am strong. I am capable. I am qualified.
3) Repeat until it becomes automatic. Put this new soundtrack on repeat every day until you are able to sing every word by memory.
