Operation Achieve Anything: Day One-Hundred-Fifty, Dateline 5-30-2018

Life without a purpose is a languid, drifting thing; every day we ought to review our purpose, saying to ourselves, “This day let me make a sound beginning, for what we have hitherto done is naught!
— Thomas Kempis

Good morning crickets. Welcome to day number one-hundred-fifty of Operation Achieve Anything. Thankfully, the next couple of days will be rather light as far as blogging goes for reasons I’d delve into throughout this post, because I’m going to have to double down on my work efforts over the next couple of days to make up for the time I’ve missed from my work’s website being down for the last day and a half. It sucks that we don’t get paid anything for downtime that’s not our fault considering they’d have to if I was working at a physical location but that is one of the trade-offs of working from home.

It’s not all that bad because, for one, I can easily make up this time by adding an extra hour or two to each work day until I do. It’s also not all that bad because while I was waiting for the website to come back up, I managed to fit in a couple SNL reviews to my stockpile of safety net content. Between that and the fact that yesterday’s assignment was more about the lesson with the task at hand being to keep on keeping on while keeping my superhero code that I created in a prior assignment in mind. To top thing off, today’s lesson was a congratulatory one where the task at hand is to go easy while reflecting on all the progress that I’ve made since starting the Achieve Anything… book.

With that, I don’t have all that much more to say but I’m sure I’ll have a few new words for you when I check in with tomorrow’s update. Until then, it’s now time for me to sign off as usual and say, 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.
