As actors, it can often feel like we have basically no control over our careers, that our fates lie with the casting directors and producers of the projects we audition for.
In this week’s episode of the “It’s a Slate of Mind” podcast, we tackle the concept of patience and it’s role in the entertainment industry. In a subjective industry where actors can often have very little control, it can feel like you have to wait for every step!
In episode 3 of “It’s a Slate of Mind”, I sit down with my friend, director and DP, Thang Ho to discuss overwork and burnout. In the entertainment industry we tend to take on as much work as we can possibly get, and while understandable, this can ultimately hurt your career and health in the long run.
Season 1 of my new podcast “It’s a Slate of Mind” has officially launched! It’s a video-podcast designed for members of the entertainment industry: actors, writers, directors, artists of all kinds. In the entertainment industry, especially in the modern days of digitizing as many aspects of our work as possible, it can feel like you’re stuck in a bubble of social media and self-taping.
Rather than pick lofty goals for the next year, I take things on a monthly basis. Before I get to listing my goals for a particular month, I start with listing the progress I’ve made in the previous month.
Guess what? There is no giant ticking clock hovering above you counting the time you’ve wasted besides the imaginary one you’ve created for yourself. You will find your path with time, you will meet career goals in time, you’re never too old to find love or have a family, and that Chipotle will still be hot and ready for you whether you’re there now or in 10 minutes.
Hey friend! Yep, I’m talking to you. It’s time to get your shit together. Tired of having a list of goals you never quite reach? You have the power to design a life you love!
