Result #29: This year I successfully maintained The Daily Breaker with daily updates.

#29: Create and maintain a section for daily updates.

Date: 1-29-2014

Due Date: 1-29-2015

Resolution: I know I already have a section for posting updates for individual projects but sometimes I'm either too busy jumping from project to project to be able to update every little thing that I work on each day, especially now that these resolutions are piling up. I fear that my lack of updates makes it seem like I am only making these resolutions without any follow through.

Every morning after posting my new resolution I go through the list and see which projects I can work on. I also determine which resolution are either completed, are passive resolutions that are happening whether or not I'm actively working on them, or are resolutions that I'm waiting on. I then justify why I'm waiting. If there is no justification for why I'm not working on a resolution then I work it into my strategy for the day.

I will be sharing the notes that I take during this process so that those of you who are interested can follow along even if I am not posting resolution specific updates. 

I posted an example of yesterdays notes here so that you can see what a complete day will look like. I may not always post updates in this format, and this may not happen every day, but if I do any work on a resolution you will be able to find out about it here.

The calender in the sidebar will provide links to progress by date. I set up an RSS feed for these updates and am looking into what it would take to automatically generate a  daily or weekly newsletter  based on these updates. If you are interested in receiving updates in your email you are welcome to sign up to my mailing list for when I do implement this feature.

I look forward to continuing to share my progress.

Update #1: The Conclusion.

This has been one of my favorite resolutions.

I started out using this to come up with a daily game plan to announce what I am up to for the day. At first I would just copy and paste what was due for the day to share my game plan but then as I started to realize has no one seems to read this section I opened up my Insights to share my personal outlook on a day to day basis.

Of any of the resolutions that I've fulfilled this is the one that I think I've delved into what makes me tick more than anything else I've shared.

I'm not going to go back and add all 365 submissions but I would recommend if you are interested in my insights that you go back and actually read my daily journal of my attempt to make it through a year of intrigue.

You might learn a lot about an interesting character that is me.

Matt Bunker

I started out with a goal of becoming a paid screenwriter. I had no interest in any other aspect of filmmaking. I received and scholarship to The Vancouver Film School's Writing for Film and Television program where I graduated in 2005. I fell in love with being on set during my first non-school produced short, . I loved being around all the creative people, seeing people having fun while working. The whole liking your job was a new world to me, so I decided to give it a shot. I volunteered for any project I could, doing what ever was needed. The set was my Film School this time. While working as a PA on a feature I was informed that the DP wanted the three tallest PAs to help out in the grip and electric department. That is when I found the department that felt like the best fit for me while I continued to write.
