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

Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday.
— Don Marquis

Good morning crickets. Welcome to day number one-hundred-fifty-six of Operation Achieve Anything. Yesterday turned out to be a pretty good day where I managed to get caught up on a lot of things that I wasn’t able to get to over the weekend thanks to my older sister’s surprise visit. Not only that, but my job’s website seemed to work out their bugs so I was able to knock out my paid obligations without any delay. To top things off, my job also provided us better instruction about what they expect out of us that I can now use as evidence when the work auditors misjudge the tasks I turn in.

As far as assignments go, yesterday there was none since the Achieve Anything… book cut off right after the lesson about not giving up on the things that you love. Even if there was an assignment base on the don’t give up theme, my obvious response would be more rambling about how I’ve been prolifically writing for so long and have no plans on giving up any time soon even though I’ve seen very little evidence that I’ll ever be successful at all.

Today’s assignment is based on a lesson about why procrastination is bad which may be one of the most “duh” concepts shared in this book so far, especially since it’s another case where the task at hand is simply to stop putting things off as if the book’s readers are already aware of this issue. It would be one this if they offered tips on how to avoid goofing off but instead, the advice was extremely generic by simply saying to stop.

I’ll delve more into my views on this topic when I check in with tomorrow’s update. Until then, it’s now time for me to wrap this thing up so that I can knock out my paid work day in order to get back to my Wicker Breaker overhaul. With that, it’s now time for me to sign off as usual 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.
