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.
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).
To start, I should say that I’m not talking about grief and mourning (including collective grief over national or international events) but if you’re interested in learning more about that you can check out Psychology Today’s page on the topic. I’m talking about those days–travel or “regular life” days–where things aren’t going as planned (in a bad way).
For someone like me, a list-loving, flexibility-challenged planner, bad days like those used to happen all the time. Over the past few years, I’ve learned some strategies to prevent and recover from them.
Mostly, I’ve learned the key thing that makes it way easier for me to be flexible, and the method I use to separate moments and keep a bad day from getting worse.
Do you ever find out about huge internet trends way after they happen? I’m not sure how I managed to NOT hear about this while it was happening, but I found it today and want to share it with you.
Colin ended up with millions of Internet friends and a huge surprise birthday party on Good Morning America (click to watch video). Of course, I like this story because it is like all the other feel-good-we-can-be-a-community-even-though-we-don’t-live-near-each-other stories, but I also like it because I remember feeling like I had no friends around that same age. My classmates threw me a surprise birthday party one year where they brought me toys from their own houses, and someone gave me a cupcake, and they had cards and sang Happy Birthday and I remember being really surprised and very confused, because they seemed to really like me. I hope we all get the chance to know real friendship and to be real friends.
Watch the video, feel inspired, and go be a friend to someone today.
