Time to Assess and Recharge.
Well, we did it. Made it through pilot season in one piece. How are you feeling?
If you're feeling tired, drained or -- well not quite sure how you're feeling -- don't worry, you're in good company. I just wrapped up leading another successfulWorking Actors PowerGroup and we're all adjusting to the calm right now in the industry. But, not to worry, this is the perfect time of year to take the temperature of your career and your 2016 goals. Let's do a little checking in...
Below are a few questions to ask yourself to get the process started. I highly suggest taking a few moments with a pen and paper to answer the questions.
- What made you smile over the last three months?
- What worked?
- What did not work?
- Did I get everything accomplished that I wanted to get done?
- How can I deepen the relationship with my reps now?
- Is it time to start looking for new reps? (right now is traditionally a great time to start the reaching out process) **I got you covered on this one! Check below.**
- What's my plan moving forward?
Assessing what worked and didn't work is a huge part of success. Without fail every time a new private client signs up for coaching, they express how they've been doing a lot for their career, but they're not sure if it's enough or the right actions. This is why it's so critical to STOP and assess. If you keep moving in this direction without course correcting - you will start to feel like you're spinning your wheels or doing busy work. This will inevitably lead to burnout.
So, take a moment to think about the last few months.
It's been go go goooo for the last three months. Now, it's time to sit back and do you. I know, I know we've all been told that you have to do something "every damn day" for your career -- or you're not working hard enough! I do believe this. But, I also believe that you must take time for yourself to live. You know that friend you've been meaning to grab a bite with -- call them! Set something up today. I dare you. Same goes for that book or podcast you've been meaning to get to - grab it! Sit down and take the to time for yourself and devour it. Sit down at your computer and get cranking on that script you've been meaning to flush out. It's not going to write itself!
This is your time.
Getting out of Los Angeles, even if it's for a night does the recharging trick for me. There's something about getting out of the city limits that totally relaxes me and reminds me to be grateful for this awesome career I'm pursuing.
