Why You Haven’t Accomplished Your Goal Yet: Reason #2

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

As I wrote last month, a lot of my clients find me and my coaching when they are very frustrated.  They work hard, get training, go to networking events, make phone calls, submit themselves and their work, and yet they aren’t getting where they need to go!

This series of blogs gets to the bottom of why you’re stopped, stuck, or not moving very fast.  Last month I talked about the problem of not really knowing what your goal is, specifically.  If you haven’t read that blog, I highly recommend checking it out.  This month, we will deal with the second reason you haven’t accomplished your goal.

You know what your goal is, but you don’t know what to do to accomplish it. 

It’s pretty simple.  You are crystal clear that you want to produce features.  But you don’t know how to go about doing that.

Or, you are clear that you want to produce bigger budget features, but you’re stuck in the low budget world and you can’t seem to get out of it.

You’re writing for kid’s animation and you want to be writing for primetime drama, but you can’t seem to make the transition.

You want to be editing award-caliber features, but you’re stuck assistant editing horror movies.

So, what to do about this?

Well, you need a strategy, pure and simple.  And it needs to be a good strategy that has been tested and vetted.

While I can’t go into the strategies of every single example above in this blog, I can give you some important tools.  And, I can point you in the direction to get more tools and strategies at the end of this blog.
