Tracy's Tiny Reboots



This podcast began as an experiment. Could I ship audio content daily for 28-consecutive days? Yes! I did it! As of March 1, 2018, this podcast is a supplement to and to the Big Reboots Podcast, which publishes twice monthly and features stories about people who have started over in life or in business.


  • TCJ 003: Marking Time

    09/05/2019 Duração: 16min

    Greetings from Music City, USA! In Franklin, Tennessee this week on business and stopped at a restaurant I hadn't stepped foot in since my senior trip in 1982.  To me, the place looked EXACTLY as I remembered it. When I told one of the employees I hadn't been here in more than three decades, he said, "It's changed a lot, hasn't it?" I'm like... Nope - and that's GOOD! On the way home, I'll be stopping there for a meal. Also, check out a quick "lessons learned" entry on life, business, and helping others.

  • TCJ 001: 10 steps for getting yourself unstuck - stuff I learnt from getting stuck in a mud hole

    22/04/2019 Duração: 10min

      A whole bunch of you have been asking when we might start releasing episodes every week, and most of you asking that question have suggested that it would be *great* if a couple of episodes a month were shorter and maybe even somewhat actionable. We’re in the process of making that happen by booking some new guests and leaning into specific expertises of some former guests. The new episodes will drop right into our Reboots feed - and we’ll call these shorter pieces *The Change Journals.* Our target release is for sometime in July. But I honestly don’t want to wait that long. A few weeks ago, my business coach - Bryan Harris of Growth University - launched a super informal podcast, called Lessons and Ideas. Sooooo, inspired by Bryan. I thought it would be fun to do a soft launch of *The Change Journals.*  And this is our first episode.

  • Do you feel guilty about not feeling grateful?

    17/05/2018 Duração: 07min

    Question. Do you ever say something like, “I’m not happy with but I shouldn’t feel this way because ” Yeah, I’ve been there.

  • Why where I do work is as important as when I do work

    15/05/2018 Duração: 07min

    How often do you fidget and fiddle the first 30 minutes or so of a big block of time you’ve set aside to work on a huge project? Like, do you sharpen 30 pencils before you sit down to write? Knowing full well you’re going to write on your Mac? Yeah, sometimes I fight so hard to settle in that my energy levels are depleted before I even get started.

  • How to know when to start creating and when to stop learning

    14/05/2018 Duração: 04min

    The headline * How to know when to start creating and when to stop learning *is a bit misleading. We don’t ever stop learning. And it’s never too soon to start creating. But I didn’t understand that until recently. Here’s what I learned...

  • Walking Around

    11/05/2018 Duração: 05min

    One of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned from producing two podcasts every month for a year is that walking does more than help with the kinks in my body. It helps me clear my brain and opens me up for a new round of gratitude and wonder for the world around me.

  • Why Ask Why?

    10/05/2018 Duração: 07min

    “Why Ask Why” was a popular hook line in the early 90s thanks to a beer commercial. One of the questions was, “Why does the Mona Lisa have no eyebrows?” If you find yourself asking unanswerable why questions, episode 9 of Tracy’s Tiny Reboots, Series 2 is for you!

  • Finding a Community of Grace, Love, and Truth

    09/05/2018 Duração: 07min

    Because I am much tougher on myself than anyone else would ever be - including God - I’ve figured out that without a safe place for people to love me and show grace even as they speak truth I’m going to destroy myself from the inside out. And I’ve asked most of the two dozen people who have shared their stories on the Reboots Podcast about how important their support team has been as they’ve navigated tragedy and heartache.

  • Self-worth: An essential component for navigating change

    08/05/2018 Duração: 06min

    When we lose everything or even one thing - marriage, career, home, whatever - we often realize how much of our identity was wrapped up in stuff, or money, or other people. So in order to navigate the loss of that thing or lots of things, it takes time to reshape our identity.

  • God and the Universe and Navigating Change

    07/05/2018 Duração: 06min

    What I’ve learned about asking others about some of the most painful moments in their lives is that they finally figured out their relationship to the universe. And for some guests, they decided that - after years of wrestling with or denying the existence of God - they were looking at a Creator through the lens of some pretty jacked up people who didn’t much understand God either.

  • How to navigate an unexpected change

    06/05/2018 Duração: 05min

    Reboots are part of life. Unexpected changes. The consequences of poor decisions. We never see it coming, do we? How can we prepare ourselves so we’re ready for the unexpected? It’s a scary thought, right? I’m Tracy Winchell, co-creator and host of the Reboots Podcast  at Reboots This is lesson 05 in Series 2 of Tracy’s Tiny Reboots. We’re celebrating 12 months of podcasting and interviewing more than two dozen people about their life and business reboots. During May, every day, we’re sharing a lesson learned from our experience.

  • How to Compare Your Progress to the Right Human

    06/05/2018 Duração: 07min

    If you’ve studied writing or any sort of creative endeavor, you know the importance of studying the works of the artists you want to emulate, right? I don’t know about you but sometimes in the process of immersing myself in the techniques of my favorite interviewers - Buster Olney of the Baseball Tonight Podcast and Krista Tippett of On Being - I forget that I’m supposed to be learning from them and I get frustrated because I’m not like them.

  • When "Why" is a Fun Question

    04/05/2018 Duração: 07min

    Do you ever stop to wonder what’s fun for you? Are you surprised when the thing that was fun last week is nerve-wracking today? That happened to me in March of this year - sitting down for three different interviews. Turns out, the answer was right under my nose, provided by Andy Traub, the interview that made me so uncomfortable.

  • Ship. Every. Day!

    03/05/2018 Duração: 06min

    Does the idea of launching a podcast intrigue you? Do you *have* a podcast but can’t seem to “find time” to publish regularly? Are you searching for the “secret” to podcast success? Stick around for the next 6 minutes and I’ll tell you what I’ve learned about shipping long form episodes twice a month for a year.

  • Do What You Can

    03/05/2018 Duração: 06min

    Do you have high expectations for yourself? Sometimes too high? Yeah, me too. And while this is one of our thirty lessons learned from a year in podcasting about life and business reboots, I have a confession. I’m still not very good at executing the principle of, “Do what you can.”

  • Coming Soon: 12 Months of Reboots + Podcasting

    It’s our podcast birthday! Every day in May on Series 2 of Tracy’s Tiny Reboots we will share a lesson learned from a year of podcasting and asking people about their life or business reboot.
