Operation Achieve Anything: Day One-Hundred-Fifty-Four, Dateline 6-3-2018

You are the embodiment of the information you choose to accept and act upon. To change your circumstance you need to change your thinking and subsequent actions.
— Adlin Sinclair

Good morning crickets. Welcome to day number one-hundred-fifty-four of Operation Achieve Anything. It’s Sunday, so I’m going to make this a quick one so that I can get back to work on the blog overhaul that I started a couple of days ago. This actually fits into yesterday’s assignment which was a continuation of the inspiration-themed tasks that the Achieve Anything… book has been focused on, which started the overhaul in the first place.

The actual assignment was to contemplate whether or not I was ready to take the inspiration that the book has been trying to build up and then run with it. Well, I not only fulfilled the task but I went beyond the contemplation phase days ago when I started the above-mentioned overhaul. Either way, I’m more on the other side of the spectrum where I need to take breaks from my passions to avoid getting burnt out as often as I do.

As for today’s assignment, I’m supposed to try and be actively aware of the things that are said about me while focusing on what information I choose to believe and what I choose to ignore. The book’s example is someone calling you an idiot and how it’s up to you to determine whether or not this means you are dumb, giving you the option to ignore the insult since it’s probably false.

The book also had an example where you might not want to ignore anything that could be considered negative like how someone might say that you are underqualified for a job and how instead of getting offended or write the feedback off, you may want to take a class in order to clean up any blind spots, so the lesson is not just to live with your head in the clouds when it comes to an outsider’s outlook on your flaws.

Again, as a shut-in, I’m not fully sure I’ll get either criticized or complimented at any point throughout the day but I’m sure that I’ll come up with something to say on the subject when I check in with tomorrow’s update. With that, it’s now time to wrap this thing up with my usual saying of, 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.
