If only I had 4 more hours in the day, I would _____________________.
What did you say? Finish your musical? Write a screenplay? Run 2 miles/go to church/spend more time with your kids?
Time is the most valuable asset in the world. It’s about a billion times more valuable than a billion dollars.
See, you can always make more money. But you can’t make more time.
In fact, without getting all morose on you . . . the time you have left on this planet to accomplish all those things you dream about doing . . . is tick, tick, ticking away.
That’s why it’s essential to make the most of each hour you have in each and every day, especially if you’ve got theatrical dreams in addition to a day job.
And, well who doesn’t?
If you’re like me, then you’ve probably got lots of stuff you want to do . . . and you’re constantly struggling to find time to do it.
I started creating and producing theater while I was still working a survival gig, and I had to figure out how to squeeze in those necessary hours to pursue my dream in and around that job.
Over the years, I’ve gotten a bit busier, (self-induced, I’ll admit, because I’m addicted to the theater!) and I’ve had to get even better at it, even though it’s now my full-time profession/obsession.
As a result, it’s not uncommon for me to get the question . . . “How do you find the time to do all the stuff you want to do?”
It’s an easy answer.
I studied how to do it.
Optimizing your time, finding efficiencies in your schedule, figuring out what to focus on and what to forget about . . . these are all learned skills. Over the past ten years, I’ve devoured book after book and listened to speech after speech to figure out what makes the most productive people tick . . . and how they got more out of each and every tick of the clock.
And thanks to that study, and some of my own “special sauce,” the last year of my life has been one of my most productive (and most fun) . . . with even more good stuff to come (just you wait for a super big announcement coming via Instagram soon).
I’m going to share the strategies I’ve learned and used daily in an online workshop on Wednesday, October 18th at 7 PM called “Getting @#$% Done: Time Management for Artists or for Anyone.”
In the webinar, I’m going to explain how to find more time in your day to do the things you want to do, so you can get to where you want to be . . . faster.
And if you want to be a success, learning this stuff is a must.
Because in this business, since development can take such a long time, and you’re never quite sure what is going to “hit” until it’s in front of an audience, your probability of success is directly related to the amount of your output. That’s why we all have to find ways to do more . . . in the same amount of hours (Edison invented thousands upon thousands of things . . . but we only remember him for just a couple – and those couple were more than enough to put him in the history books.)
This workshop is only available to members of TheProducersPerspectivePRO. And when you sign up for this workshop, you have 20+ hours of others absolutely free.
Look, if you were ever thinking about taking one of my workshops, this is the one. Because none of the other stuff that I teach actually matters, unless you can find the time to action it.
This workshop will teach you how to do just that.
And together we’ll find the time that you need to accomplish what you put in that blank at the beginning of this blog together.
