I spend a lot of time with fellow filmmakers, who always remind me of the power of “doing.” Too many of us waste our lives waiting for the right moment before we step out and take a risk. But the people who really accomplish something special are those who are willing to be embarrased. Whatever your dream may be, my word for you today is: Start. Begin networking. Write a script. Make a digital short. Draw your idea on the back of a napkin. Get your courage up and call that potential investor.
Don’t wait for the “perfect” moment. Become known as a “doer” – a “make it happen” person. When you start “doing,” you’ll become a magnet for people and projects. Nike’s right: “Just Do It.”
