Operation Achieve Anything: Day Three-Hundred-Thirteen, Dateline 11-9-2018

People rarely succeed unless they have fun at what they are doing.
— Dale Carnegie

Good morning crickets. Welcome to day number three-hundred-thirteen of Operation Achieve Anything. Sometimes I hate having ten different daily challenges going on all at the same time because, on days like today, where I just feel sick and need to take the day off, I feel like a complete failure for not getting to everything that I need to. Sure, I did manage to get almost everything done, but I’m probably going to beat myself up over the few things that I had to put off for tomorrow.

I guess I can blame my failure to meet all my goals on the assignment from yesterday where I was supposed to attempt to have a little fun. Though day drinking is to blame for most of my issues with time, I do also have a bit of a cold that has zapped my energy enough to where I’m just not going to be able to meet all of my deadlines for today. Then again, I did manage to get a lot done and will only be missing my Fitbit steps for the day. This sucks because that failure will show daily for the rest of the week through the Fitbit’s step tracking system, even if I make up these missed steps on another day.

Aside from failing to walk, it actually turned out to be a fun day where I got caught up with an old friend. As much as I’m pretty settled into my new extreme shut-in ways, I really do miss having people outside of my family to talk to. Hopefully, the conversation that I started won’t just be a one-off interaction because I really enjoyed talking to this old friend, which probably fulfilled the assignment to have fun more than my effort to meet the task at hand through drinking alone. That said, fulfilling a task had nothing to do with why I reached out, just to be clear.

So, there you have how I fulfilled yesterday’s task and the assignment for today is the exact same task that it’s been for the past two days where I’m still supposed to just try to have fun. As always, you’ll have to wait for tomorrow’s update to see how I handle this three-peat. Until then, it’s now time for me to sign of as usual by saying, good day and good luck to you and all of your projects.

Talk to you soon.

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.
