What she wrote turned on a light inside my head...a super new way of looking at the old "to-do list" that can be so frustrating (and that my husband abhorred so much when I used to create weekend to-dos it caused regular arguments, so I stopped making them).
Lisa is a working actress who has some exciting projects going on. I hope to make a "done" list in the future that includes: Saw the movie that Lisa Allender is in and it was thrilling and she is great!
Auditions upcoming, an appointment with a highly-regarded talent agent, and a short film,"Just Us", that should be completed soon!
I cannot describe how empowered I am (finally!) beginning to feel. I suppose like a lot of artist-types, I'm not much of a "planner".I tend to "visualize" a goal, but it often takes me much longer to reach it than it would someone who lives only in the "9-5" world (folks who work ONLY there, in that they are not writing novels, poems, or acting for a living), not for lack of effort or work on my part, but because I am not as organized,or as "efficient" in terms of time management(which goes back to organizational-skills).
But I am excited, because I've even conquered that.
By not writing out "To-Do" lists, and instead, writing a "Done" list, once I've completed tasks.This puts the onus on me, to be fast, to be single-minded(verrrry difficult for me, because in my head it always feels like three or five--or ten things--are happening at once.), to get it done.
So,here's to completion, to getting things finished--in a more timely manner--and to uh, confidence!
