If you do not have a clear objective, you have no definition of winning.

If you do not have a clear strategy, you have no chance of winning.

If all you have are tactics, you have no right to win.

Sharing. Selling. Servicing.

  • By sharing, you are giving someone information that could completely change the way they see things.
  • By sharing, you have the power to help people understand themselves and the issues we face in our complicated world today.
  • By sharing, you also quickly learn things about yourself. Discovering the truth about ourselves is a lifetime of work. But, it’s worth the effort.

It’s crucial to surround yourself with like-minded people.

On this day, the objective was to promote the premiere of the television series, “Prison Break” for our client Sarah Wayne Callies (The Walking Dead, Prison Break)

Caring

People don’t care what you know until they know what you care. No one more cares more than my partner Erwin More who is brainstorming with producer Craig Flores (Indie Producer formerly of Voltage Pictures) about the television business.

The Power of Collaboration

Any partnership will benefit from an enthusiastic commitment to build trust, communication, community and excitement (even though neither one of them appear to be excited!) You’re only as good as those you associate with. Surround yourself with people that reflect who you want to be and how you want to feel, energies are contagious.

The days that you put in will add up to something meaningful.

You don’t need to have big wins every day for your work to be valuable. All you need is one small victory each day. And if you continue to build small wins on top of other wins, you will eventually achieve a moment of clarity, like the one below. Seeing Sarah overcome with emotion during an interview while talking about her abundance of success is what I work for. It gave me the chills, and in that moment I truly understood what my hard work is building towards. You won’t see these moments every day, or even every week, but you should always keep them in mind as the goal that you’re working towards – whether helping make these moments happen for a client, or for yourself.

After a long and fulfilling day of work, I’ve come to realize that the heart of collective learning is the sharing of information. We share information because it helps us survive. We learn faster. We make better decisions. We accomplish more with less.

Your purpose in life is to find and do things that make you smile, laugh and forget time.

And, in the end…the love you make is equal to the love you take. – John Lennon

    Thanks for referring me to your blog. You have an amazing amount of amusement and insight here.
    hmmm….My day in the life:
    It’s Easter Monday, so I have 3 kids at home on a long weekend. I’m up at 6 am to write another episode idea for series, approve some graphics for a series bible, then try on dresses for a gala and screenwriting seminar this weekend before getting dressed for the day. I went off to the coffee shop while kids and dog were still asleep to write emails and letters. Met with a community theatre connection to talk about life and the pursuit of happiness. Then came home to make a full Turkey dinner with all the fixings, including gluten free, dairy free pumpkin pie. After dinner clean up, off to hot yoga class and home to shower and bed by 10 pm. Now I’m reading the last of my emails, complimenting your website and off to sleep. It was a good day in the life for me… thanks for reminding me how wonderfully blessed I am. Goodnight!

    Out of breath leaping from building to building in a Parkour chase, scuba diving in the Caribbean exploring old shipwrecks, and seducing villains into a trap….

    All in a day’s work as a writer.

    P.S. Special days include collaborating with our Passion Project Crew in Denver.
