Operation Achieve Anything: Day Two-Hundred-Ninety-Five, Dateline 10-22-2018

Work while you have the light. You are responsible for the talent that has been entrusted to you.
— Henri Frederic Amiel

Good morning crickets. Welcome to day number two-hundred-ninety-five of Operation Achieve Anything. Here we go with another post just hours from my last one. According to my Fitbit, I did manage to fit in three hours of sleep, making it both technically and literally a new day, but I swear that it didn’t feel like I slept a second at all. Then again, I do remember a dream where I couldn’t get my stomach to stop rumbling which led everyone in a tight office space to think that I kept on farting.

Other than that felt like I spent the entire night tossing and turning while suffering from panic attacks about whether or not I’ll be able to make my day today. Thanks to my impromptu box wine vacation, I missed out on completing many things that I wanted to in my effort to make today go easy. Now, on top of the typical tasks that fill my day, I also have to complete the end of the season site work for my SNL project while also trying to figure out a way to work in three extra hours’ worth of writing for a side gig that’s due by the end of the day. Finally, I also have to officially apply for a job that I’ve been offered and just have to read and sign the paperwork to make official.

With that said, I’m going to jump right into yesterday’s task where I was supposed to attempt to discover my passion. As I said in last night’s post, it seems late in the game for the book to repeat this assignment since the book is goal based, so I figure anyone should already know what they’re working towards by this point. Aside from that the answer is simple, my true passions in life are my writing and this blog. If you want any evidence just go back and read any post.

Today’s assignment is another weak one where once again the book is rewording the concept that if you love what you do, you’ll never have to work a day in your life. Thankfully, both this assignments were simple enough that this super quick post just saved me quite a bit of time. As always, I’ll still delve into today’s assignment when I check in with tomorrow’s update. Until then, it’s time to sign off by saying, good day and good luck to you and all of your projects.

Talk to you soon.

P.S. Below are links to my novel, which I plan to promote as part of Operation Achieve Anything, as well as a link to where you can buy the book that is providing the structure to this project in case you would like to purchase it in order to play along.

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.
