Some of you may be asking what does all this philosophy have to do with filmmaking. Well nothing directly. But success follows those that are already personally successful. So it relates because if you can master yourself and your life then film success is simple right? So how do you lead your life? Well what happens in the end? What will people say about you?
The truth is that you lead your life just like you lead anything else. With a plan. I found these leadership attributes useful. Ignore the fact that this article is geared toward an organization. You are the head of an organization... You INC. If you have a business you'll need two lists but your personal list always trumps your business list. My personal mission is to use the gifts I've been given to help motivate others toward their potential. This blog is a part of that. The themes in my films always deal with this. What is yours?
