Sonitotum with Matthew Wayne Selznick 016: Pay Attention to Intention

This is a solo episode — very much a “part two” of the previous episode — in which I explore why my creative production has been so sporadic over the last couple months, and what that lack of initiative and focus might be telling me… and what actions I should take moving forward. Related: the trap of doing things you think people want rather than things that actually matter to you and to others.
