4 Steps to Accomplishing Your Goals – Adam Luff’s Story: “Have Friends on Similar Paths”


This is part of the 4 Steps to Accomplishing Your Goals series, a walk-through of the process I use to accomplish many things throughout the year. I’m also highlighting stories from people who’ve accomplished big goals in their life or business.

Today, Adam Luff, a freelance screenwriter from the UK, gives us an update on his life since his earlier interview. In the last five years, he’s built up film credits in writing, directing, producing, and editing, and in 2016 really focused on getting into the film world. Adam shares his reflections on this goal, tells us his key to success, and lets us in on his direction for the year ahead.

Check out the posts in the series to read more about clarifying your goal or celebrating success, and be sure to leave a comment about your experience.

The four steps each also have worksheets that help you walk through this process. If you want them, be sure to answer Yes!! on that section on the Insiders signup form (if you’re already signed up, you can update your profile by giving the same email you used before).

What is one of your dreams for your life?
To immigrate to the United States. The ambition began when I studied in San Francisco on a Masters program in Motion Pictures and Television. When I came back to England, I kept connected with my classmates and continue to write screenplays for their film projects as well as finding new clients to write for.

What is something on your bucket list?
To attend the Day of the Dead in Mexico. I had this in mind for a while but when I recently saw Spectre it was as a big reminder to get on with it.

Who or what inspires you?
I can be quite a nostalgic person, always looking back. I’d love to make retro films, for example a film that’s far out and colorful like the old spy films of the swinging sixties and a classic movie serial complete with over the top cliffhangers. So far the films I’ve been able to make or contribute to have been things set in modern times but one film I’m proud of is Hat Trick (2012) which is based on the old silent movies of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton.

Thanks for sharing your time and dreams with us, Adam!
