Got new head shots this year – pretty much the only thing I accomplished in 2017


As the year comes to a close I was looking at my goals and intentions to begin the year.  I suggest you do the same!

My main projects this year were to get a few major things done, printed, and ready to have available by year end.

In looking at my list, I have the following I am working on and aren’t yet complete:

  1. The Promise book
  2. The Descent book
  3. These Are The Days album of original music, with accompanying artwork and poetry book
  4. New Design of Web Site
  5. Revamped “How To Make a Career From Stage” online course with updated videos and templates
  6. Creation of online course “Stage Craft & Presence”

As I sit and look at this list, I see why I haven’t finished anything.  Although I used it as my excuse to have multiple projects going at once which have allowed me to not get bored with any one project, I equally failed to finish anything!  I am much further along with all of them than I was 12 months ago, but no where near complete on any!

Why such a sad and frustrating post you ask?

Because I want you to know that despite all of the advice I give in this blog I still struggle with doing much of what I teach.

At the same time I hope you understand you can accomplish great things, and yet the power of focus is what is most important in getting things done.

I have spread myself too thin this year.  Lofty goals have yielded bitter disappointments.

What to do moving forward?  Some might say, “Set smaller goals!”


I just need to focus on one, get it done, and move to the next.  Sounds simple, but for me it is one of the most difficult concepts in my life.

I have tabled a few of these projects, most of which are Legacy Projects more than current financial gain products, and look forward to getting at least ONE done in the new year.

In what areas are you spread too thin?  Face reality and it changes the game.

  1. I think it’s to easy to get excited by new projects before you finish what you are working on. In my head things always go smooth and go much faster than they do in real life. My goal for this next year is to be more organized and knock down projects one at a time.
