Operation Achieve Anything: Day One-Hundred-Twenty-Six, Dateline 5-6-2018

Tact is the knack of making a point without making an enemy.
— Isaac Newton

Good morning Crickets. Welcome to day number one-hundred-twenty-six of Operation Achieve Anything. It’s my last lazy Sunday before my first steady employment Monday which is something I haven’t experienced in a while. Keep in mind, I have been keeping busy with freelance work where Monday’s can randomly appear on any day if they show up at all. It will be nice to have a steady income to feel less judged by how I spend my free time and again, I am the one who is doing the judging since the rest of the world barely seems to notice that I’m here.

Yesterday, my assignment was to take a cheat day from the new diet and exercise routine that the Achieve Anything… book just suggested I start. The nice thing about this cheat day is that not only did it mean I could go easy yesterday, as far as tasks are concerned, today’s going to be easy as well considering how I have nothing to report on as far as the assignment goes.

As far as today’s assignment goes, I’m supposed to explore the concept of tack since the book promotes the idea that no man is an island and being able to convince others to want to play along is a pretty big key to success. This kind of goes against my plans to one day hopefully become successful enough to live as a comfortable shut-in out in the middle of the woods, but I still get the point of the task.

Of course, you’ll have to wait for tomorrow’s update to hear more about what I have to say on the subject as I officially finish the assignment. Until then, it’s now time for me to wrap this up as usual by saying, good day and good luck to you and all of your project, and wish me luck at my new gig.  

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.
