Most time is wasted, not in hours, but in minutes. A bucket with a small hole in the bottom gets just as empty as a bucket that is deliberately kicked over. Paul J. Meyer

NEVER PLAY TO THE GALLERY - Episode 101

QUOTES:

“If you feel safe in the area that you’re working in, you’re not working in the right area. Always go a little further into the water than you feel capable of being in. Go a little bit out of your depth, and when you don’t feel that your feet are quite touching the bottom, you’re just about in the right place to do something exciting.” David Bowie

“There will be no one like us when we are gone, but then there is no one like anyone else, ever. When people die, they cannot be replaced. They leave holes that cannot be filled, for it is the fate - the genetic and neural fate - of every human being to be a unique individual, to find his own path, to live his own life, to die his own death.” Oliver Sacks

“I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure - which is: Try to please everybody.” Herbert Bayard Swope

10 PRODUCTIVITY SUPERPOWERS - Episode 100
2447
Today is the last of the long episodes and in it, I am going to look back over the previous 100 shows and pick out 10 productivity techniques that will supercharge your life if you choose to take them on board. Having knowledge of these techniques is only half the battle you see, they will only ever make a difference in your life if you put them into action.

As Stan Lee would say with great power comes great responsibility but I’m going to grant you these superpowers to do with as you may; all I ask is that you use them to strive forward in your life and career towards the success that awaits you.

QUOTES

“We all wish we had superpowers. We all wish we could do more than we can do."
Stan Lee

"Gaining superpowers doesn't mean you know how to use them." Richelle Mead

"If you have an instinct to act on a goal, you must physically move within 5 seconds or your brain will kill it." Mel Robbins

“Mental energy is the world’s hottest commodity. People are going to try to steal it, drain it, and suck it up every second you’re awake. Yet very few of us protect it. Few of us know how.” Isaiah Hankel

“Mental energy is OUR MOST VALUABLE ASSET. Without it, you won’t have the enthusiasm, motivation, drive, and physical energy to live a full rich life. - The problem is this asset DEPRECIATES RAPIDLY every day.” Isaiah Hankel

“People carefully protect the money in their bank account and the time in their calendar, but they do little to protect their attention.” And “Attention”, he says “is the gateway to your mental energy. WHERE YOUR ATTENTION GOES, YOUR MENTAL ENERGY FLOWS.” Isaiah Hankel

“It is fundamentally the confusion between effectiveness and efficiency that stands between DOING THE RIGHT THINGS and DOING THINGS RIGHT. There is surely nothing quite so useless as doing with great efficiency that which should not be done at all.” Peter Drucker

"We must stop this incessant victimhood mentality.
Somebody else will not fix things.
Somebody else will not make me healthy.
Somebody else will not make me happy.
These things are my responsibility.
Not the neighbour’s,
not the government’s,
not the church or the civic club."
Joel Salatin

"You are 42 percent more likely to achieve your goals if you write them down." Dr Gail Matthews, at the Dominican University in California

“Saying no is very near the top of the productivity techniques that I use most often – Learn to say ‘no’ to the good so you can say ‘yes’ to the best” John C. Maxwell

“Learn to set boundaries. In short, learn to say no. Don't guilt and shame yourself. Say no to people and things you don't want. Just say no. It is your right, it is your time, it is your energy.” Akiroq Brost

“Your life today is a result of your thinking yesterday. Your life tomorrow will be determined by what you think today.” John C. Maxwell


SPONSOR

This podcast has only been made possible by the support of the various sponsors that have come my way over the past several years and today's show is no different. I’m genuinely excited in fact to tell you a little about today's sponsor as they are fellow action choreographers and stunt professionals. Since 2015 Breakfall Studios has offered individual and group training opportunities to the New York City stunt performers and actors. They offer regularly scheduled fighting, falling, tactical and stunt/action related workshops. If you are a production in need of fight coordination, a space to rehearse, shoot previz or host an audition, their Midtown studio is available for rent. Have an actor in your production who needs fight training? They've got you covered. Centrally located in Midtown, Manhattan, they will make finding time and space a bit easier. Their facility is fully equipped with a variety of pads, mats, prop weapons, a basic rig system, scaffold, and more.

TO DO LISTS - Episode 99
1836
In this episode, I discuss 19 ways to improve how you handle to-do lists. How much time do you spend on planning your days? 5 minutes? 10? How many of you spend no time at all on planning and just go with the flow and if you do that – how’s it working out for you? Well as you are listening to this show I’d guess you do at least try, now and again, to make SOME plans but creating a task list should not be some secondary thing that you try to do as quickly as possible. In fact, when you pay more attention to your next day’s to-do list, the more likely the list is going to be realistic.

QUOTES

"When you make a to-do list, you should also make a to-not-do list. Warren Buffet was asked about the secret to success, and he said that it was saying no to almost everything. Some of those little tasks won't matter as long as you get the big tasks done." Brian Tracy

"If someone gives me a to-do list, I say 'thank you, this is nice.' One needs things to throw in the wastebasket." Karl Lagerfeld

OPENING AND CLOSING DOORS - Episode 98
627
Generally, when I talk about opening and closing doors I am talking in terms of taking on too many things. As discussed in the last show you need to ruthlessly prioritize what you are getting yourself into and the best way to do that is to always be prepared to turn down what at first may appear to be an opportunity.

QUOTES:

“When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.” Alexander Graham Bell

"Close some doors today. Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance, but simply because they lead you nowhere." Paulo Coelho

"Some doors are best left closed." George R. R. Martin

FOCUS ON THREE THINGS - Episode 97
639
In this episode I’m backing a simple productivity concept - that focusing on no more than 3 things over a given period of time, not at the same time, but over a given period, could change everything for you. It may be more completely stated as "Focus on three things, ignore the rest."

QUOTES:

“This is a ruthless world and one must be ruthless to cope with it." Charlie Chaplin

“Past and current clients will smile at the title, as I always look to get them to distil their focus down to three things, no matter the size of the company, the complexity of the challenges, opportunities, issues they face.” Tom McCallum

“We talk about it as ruthless prioritization and by that what we mean is - only do the very best of the ideas. Lots of times you have very good ideas but they're not as good as the most important thing you could be doing and you have to make the hard choices.” Sheryl Sandberg

"People who can focus, get things done. People who can prioritize, get the right things done." John Maeda

I follow one of life’s great philosophers on YouTube by the name of Demi Demi, who went viral a few years back with his video "Tough times never last, only tough people last". He did it with great style and a lot of fun and since then he’s released hundreds of short motivational videos which are always entertaining.

GOOD FAST CHEAP - Episode 94
479
Today’s episode highlights a simple rule that can be applied to virtually any project that we set out to do. It’s known in business terms as The Project Management Triangle but that uses the terms “cost,” “schedule,” and “scope”. In effect, it comes down to the same thing. You get what you pay for.

CREATIVITY ON DEMAND - Episode 93
1798
Making something from nothing, or quickly solving a creative problem that comes up to bite you or your project in the ass is sometimes a really hard thing to do. Like catching lightning in a bottle, creativity on demand is simply not always easy.

QUOTES:

“The goal isn’t to make something everyone will love; the goal is to get excited, and make a thing where something wasn’t before.” Will Wheaton

"Creativity is often blocked by trying to be perfect. Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep." Tony Robbins

“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they sometimes think they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while.” Steve Jobs

"Done is better than perfect" Sheryl Sandberg

"Perfectionism is the enemy of creation, as extreme self- solitude is the enemy of well-being." John Updike

QUOTES:

“To become fit requires discomfort, to earn a significant income requires discomfort, to become great at anything, requires you to pay the price. To become great, you must choose to allocate your time to your greatest opportunities. You will have to choose to spend time on the difficult things that create your biggest payoffs. To be great you will need to live with intention. That will require you to be clear on what matters most, and then to have the courage to say no to things that distract you.” Brian P. Moran

"If we did the things we are capable of doing we would literally astound ourselves.” Thomas Edison

“We mistakenly believe that there is a lot of time left in the year, and we act accordingly. We lack a sense of urgency, not realizing that every week is important, every day is important, every moment is important. Ultimately, effective execution happens daily and weekly!” Brian P. Moran

MAKING A "HOUSE BOOK" - Episode 90
1146
In this episode I discuss one very simple thing that you can do right now, if you have not already done it, to make your life easier and reduce feelings of anxiety and stress in regard to living our everyday lives. Yes, this podcast is specifically aimed at creative people and film pros but every one of us will still have real-life tasks and responsibilities which I’m sure you know all too well if we do not stay on top of, will damage our creative and work lives and slow down our productivity. Today I’m going to talk about making up a HOUSE BOOK.

THE OTHER PANDEMIC: VICTIM MENTALITY - Episode 88
1622
Just raising the subject of victim mentality is a dangerous business because those that buy into it will vehemently defend their position - a position born out of negative experiences, negative influences, or negative bias. The thing is… I can’t let it go any further – not that I think my talking about it will change the world – but it may just help a few of you that are listening to get ahead in the world or at least get past whatever victim based thinking is holding you back.

QUOTES:

"But victimhood was seductive, a release from responsibility and caring. Fear would be transmuted into weary resignation; failure would no longer generate guilt but, instead, would spawn a comforting self-pity." From the novel Intensity by Dean Koontz

"We must stop this incessant victimhood mentality.
Somebody else will not fix things.
Somebody else will not make me healthy.
Somebody else will not make me happy.
These things are my responsibility.
Not the neighbour’s,
not the government’s,
not the church or the civic club."
Joel Salatin

"Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself." Harvey Fierstein

CLOUT CHASERS - Episode 87
1022
Clout chasing is an expression that came out of the American rap music industry and in simple terms, a Clout Chaser is someone who does and says things simply for the purpose of becoming more popular. You may not be familiar with the term, but I think you’ll recognise the sort of person that today’s topic defines pretty quickly.

"It is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things." Henry David Thoreau

"Clout Chasers will bypass all morality, all logic, know what I’m saying? Any type of loyalty just to get some type of attention and these motherf***ers are dangerous… to them, clout is more important than money itself, it’s more important than love… these are the ones that you want to stay far far away from you know. I mean you need to watch out, you need to watch out, you need to watch out…" Doit Jack (YouTube)

"I'm not upset that you lied to me, I'm upset that from now on I can't believe you." Friedrich Nietzsche

"All liars ... lie to protect themselves, to shield their egos from the raw pain of truth." Aminatta Forna

"Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them."
Henry David Thoreau

QUOTES:

"We need to ascend beyond our own petty Resistance, our own negative self-judgment and self-sabotage, our own "I'm not worthy" mindset." Steven Pressfield

"Turning pro is a mindset. If we are struggling with fear, self-sabotage, procrastination, self-doubt, etc., the problem is, we’re thinking like amateurs. Amateurs don’t show up. Amateurs crap out. Amateurs let adversity defeat them. The pro thinks differently. He shows up, he does his work, he keeps on truckin’, no matter what." Steven Pressfield

QUOTES:

We are more often frightened than hurt, and we suffer more in imagination than in reality. Seneca

No person has the power to have everything they want, but it is in their power not to want what they don’t have, and to cheerfully put to good use what they do have. Seneca

External things are not the problem. It’s your assessment of them which you can erase right now. Marcus Aurelius

The chief task in life is simply this: to identify and separate matters so that I can say clearly to myself which are externals not under my control, and which have to do with the choices I actually control. Where then do I look for good and evil? Not to uncontrollable externals, but within myself to the choices that are my own. Epictetus

Self-disruption is akin to undergoing major surgery, but you are the one holding the scalpel. Jay Samit

You become what you give your attention to...If you yourself don't choose what thoughts and images you expose yourself to, someone else will, and their motives may not be the highest. Epictetus

You become what you think about most often. Brian Tracy

The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts. Marcus Aurelius

You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength. Marcus Aurelius

QUOTES:

Drop the last year into the silent limbo of the past. Let it go, for it was imperfect, and thank God that it can go. Brooks Atkinson

The knowledge is there within us. We have only to think about the advice we have for others and then have the humility to see if we’re following it ourselves. Jinny Ditzler

I never fit in. I am a true alternative. And I love being the outcast. That's my role in life, to be an outcast. Meat Loaf

When you find your why, you find a way to make it happen. Eric Thomas

One reason so few of us achieve what we truly want is that we never direct our focus; we never concentrate our power. Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in particular. Tony Robbins

The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want and if they can't find them, make them. George Bernard Shaw

The problem in my life and other people's lives is not the absence of knowing what to do but the absence of doing it. Peter Drucker

Anything can be achieved in small, deliberate steps. But there are times you need the courage to take a great leap; you can't cross a chasm in two small jumps. David Lloyd George

The future belongs to those who prepare for it. Jim Moran

To achieve goals you've never achieved before, you need to start doing things you've never done before. Stephen Covey

QUOTES:

Every time we choose action over ease or labor over rest, we develop an increasing level of self-worth, self-respect and self-confidence. In the final analysis, it is how we feel about ourselves that provides the greatest reward from any activity. It is not what we get that makes us valuable, it is what we become in the process of doing that brings value into our lives. It is activity that converts human dreams into human reality, and that conversion from idea into actuality gives us a personal value that can come from no other source. Jim Rohn

It is not enough to possess virtue as if it was an art; It should be practised. Marcus Tullius Cicero

Praise and appreciation for the good news make all the difference. We feel stronger and more naturally motivated and there’s less of that needy part of us, always trying to prove ourselves and hoping someone will notice. Jinny Ditzler

Awareness brings its own reward. Shifting your attention to what you have accomplished in the past year awakens your “can do! Attitude” and gets you back in touch with your ability to make things happen. Jinny Ditzler

Pivoting is not the end of the disruption process, but the beginning of the next leg of your journey. Jay Sammit

If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much. Jim Rohn

Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Are you satisfied with where you are and the direction you are going? If not, take control of your life and change whatever needs to be changed. You and only you have the power to do this. You can change your world! Napoleon Hill

QUOTES:

The goal you set must be challenging. At the same time, it should be realistic and attainable, not impossible to reach. It should be challenging enough to make you stretch, but not so far that you break. Rick Hansen

The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He or she is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things. Ronald Reagan

Practising the Golden Rule is not a sacrifice, it's an investment. Treat Others as you would wish to be treated yourself. Byllye Avery

QUOTES:


Sometimes people don't want to hear the truth because they don't want their illusions destroyed. Friedrich Nietzsche
 
The spinning wheels, rotating egg timers and moving progress bars we regularly see on our screens when using our electronic devices are often misleading. Rather than offering an accurate representation of work being done, they are more often than not simply there to give the impression that something is happening behind the scenes. They provide us with a sense that we are not waiting in vain for something to happen. William Park
 



If you have to work to give your customers what they want, don’t hide it – flaunt it! Paul Marsden

QUOTES:








In the land of "I know," there is always competitiveness, jealousy, pretence, pride and arrogance. It is an aggressive realm - the realm of the ego. I say refuse citizenship. In the land of "I don’t know," the inhabitants move without conflict and are naturally quiet, happy and peaceful. The wise stay here. Mooji
 
Success is a process for all of us, and as long as you are making consistent progress towards your goals - sincerely giving your best effort more often than not - then you are already successful and deserve to feel proud of yourself. Hal Elrod
 
There are two kinds of pride, both good and bad. 'Good pride' represents our dignity and self-respect. 'Bad pride' is the deadly sin of superiority that reeks of conceit and arrogance. John C. Maxwell
 
The truest characters of IGNORANCE are VANITY and PRIDE and ARROGANCE. Samuel Butler
 
Pride is concerned with who is right. Humility is concerned with what is right. Ezra Taft Benson
 

Arrogance really comes from insecurity, and in the end, our feeling that we are BIGGER than others is really the flip side of our feeling that we are SMALLER than others. Desmond Tutu
 
Close some doors today. Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance, but simply because they lead you nowhere. Paulo Coelho
 

You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you. Dale Carnegie
 

Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves; vanity, to what we would have others think of us. Jane Austin

Improving yourself is a lot more profitable than trying to improve others. Dale Carnegie

Try leaving a trail of little sparks of gratitude on your daily trips. You will be surprised how they will set small flames of friendship that will be rose beacons on your next visit. Dale Carnegie

There is only one way under high Heaven to get anybody to do anything… And that is by making the other person want to do it. Dale Carnegie



If you are not in the process of becoming the person you want to be, you are automatically engaged in becoming the person you don't want to be. Dale Carnegie

QUOTES:





Don't get too comfortable with who you are at any given time - you may miss the opportunity to become who you really want to be. Jon Bon Jovi
Easy roads make sleepy travellers. Charles Spurgeon

Discomfort brings engagement and change. Discomfort means you're doing something that others were unlikely to do, because they're hiding out in the comfortable zone. When your uncomfortable actions lead to success, the organization rewards you and brings you back for more. Seth Godin

It’s not our failures that determine our future success, but how we explain it to ourselves. Dr. Martin Seligman, founder of Positive Psychology

The biggest risk is not taking any risk. In a world that’s changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking any risks. Mark Zuckerberg

The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers. M. Scott Peck

QUOTES:

In most cases, strengths and weaknesses are two sides of the same coin. A strength in one situation is a weakness in another, yet often the person can't switch gears. It's a very subtle thing to talk about strengths and weaknesses because almost always they're the same thing. Steve Jobs
 

Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored. Aldous Huxley

WHAT ARE SMART GOALS? Episode 72
924
The SMART goal setting system is a simple productivity technique that will help you to plan out and set realistic and achievable goals. To find out more, have a listen.
You can read the full transcript for this episode on the official website https://www.filmproproductivity.com/
 
 QUOTES:
You should Focus on what it is that you want and set a realistic goal. Start setting goals that you feel you can accomplish and don't try to go right to the top in one leap. Every time you accomplish one goal you develop the strength and wisdom to accomplish the next one. Chuck Norris
 

What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals. Michelangelo Buonarroti

 
Don't look at the big picture as the only achievement. Start with set, smart goals and work up to something bigger. Jordyn Wieber
 

The great majority of people are “wandering generalities” rather than “meaningful specifics”. The fact is that you can't hit a target that you can't see. If you don't know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else. You have to have goals. Zig Ziglar

SCAMS, LIES & DOUBLE DEALING (Part 1) - Episode 67
2509
This episode is about creative scams. That’s scams that are aimed, not at the general public, but specifically at those working in the creative industries.
 
QUOTES:
It was the heart of any scam or fiddle -- keep the punter uncertain, or, if he is certain, make him certain of the wrong thing. Terry Pratchett
We can all be conned but at what point do we realize that we're being conned and to what point do we allow ourselves to be conned? Guy Ritchie 
There is no doubt that the Internet brims with spamming, scamming and identity fraud. Having someone wipe out your hard drive or bank account has never been easier, and the tools for committing electronic mischief on your enemies are cheap and widely accessible. Evgeny Morozov
Who is going to believe a con artist? Everyone, if she is good. Andy Griffith
A lot of hackers set up scam sites. They can impersonate a site like PayPal, for instance. Michael Demon Calce
Hollywood is largely about scammers and con men. It was my main livelihood for about 25 years, and the scams were beautiful and ugly, cheap and expensive, but, wow, were there a lot of scammers. Ben Stein

QUOTES:
The physical symptoms of fight or flight are what the human body has learned over thousands of years to operate efficiently and at the highest level...anxiety is a cognitive interpretation of that physical response. John Eliot 
I've had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened Mark Twain 
Anxiety DESTROYS SCALE, and SUFFERING MAKES US LOSE PERSPECTIVE. Saul Bellow
David Carbonell of Anxietycoach.com = THE ANXIETY TRICK. You experience Discomfort and get fooled into treating it like Danger.
You can never become a great man or woman until you have overcome anxiety, worry, and fear. It is impossible for an anxious person, a worried one, or a fearful one to perceive TRUTH; all things are distorted and thrown out of their proper relations by such mental states, and those who are in them cannot read the thoughts of God. Wallace D. Wattles 
 “Wasting brain power ruminating about things you can't control drains mental energy quickly. The more you think about problems you can't solve, the less energy you'll have leftover for more productive endeavors.” Amy Morin
 
The next show #58 will be released in a few days and is about dealing with Information Overload.

“Too many of us are not living our dreams, because we are living our fears. Decide to become fearless. Face the thing you fear the most. You're stronger than you give yourself credit for. If you can laugh at it. You can move past it. You have the ability to do more than you have ever hoped, imagined or dreamed. You have GREATNESS within you!” Les Brown

BULLYING AND THE SILENT MAJORITY - Episode 47
2967
Today I’ll be tackling a form of behaviour which I see more and more often, and it took me a number of years to realise that BULLIES are as much a part of adult life as they were in school - but I’ve had enough of them, and I have started calling them out when they raise their ugly heads. They don’t like it though. They don’t like it at all....
For a full transcript of this episode please go to the official website https://www.filmproproductivity.com/
 
Quotes:
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” -  Eleanor Roosevelt
“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.” -  Abraham Lincoln
“Bullying builds character like nuclear waste creates superheroes. It's a rare occurrence and often does much more damage than good.”  - Zack W. Van
“When one person makes an accusation, check to be sure he himself is not the guilty one. Sometimes it is those whose case is weak who make the most clamour.” -  Piers Anthony
“One’s dignity may be assaulted, vandalized and cruelly mocked, but it can never be taken away unless it is surrendered.” - Michael J Fox
“In too many ways, political correctness has been a bully.” -  Judge Judy Sheindlin
“Bullies lose their power if you don’t cower. Deep down, they doubt they deserve your respect. They admire you for speaking with self-assurance and confidence. So when they bombard, don’t counterpunch. Rather, win them over with your strong, firm, courteous demeanour.” And “know that the victim does not intend to be victimized. It does not seek forgiveness, but does not pose a challenge either.” - Amy Cooper Hakim of PSYCHOLOGY TODAY
STAY CONNECTED. “Bullies operate by making their victims feel alone and powerless.” - Signe Whitson
“The trick is to remain polite and professional while still setting your limits firmly. Don't let the bully get under your skin—that's what he wants. Practice your response so you're prepared the next time something happens and you can respond swiftly without getting emotional. Keep it simple and straightforward, for example: ‘I won’t be talked to in this way.” - Chrissy Scivicque
"Nobody can hurt me without my permission."  — Mahatma Gandhi
“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” - Martin Luther King Jr
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” Martin Luther King, Jr
“The Bully has a Jekyll and Hyde nature - is vile, vicious and vindictive in private, but innocent and charming in front of witnesses; no-one can (or wants to) believe this individual has a vindictive nature - only the current target of the serial bully's aggression sees both sides; whilst the Jekyll side is described as "charming" and convincing enough to deceive personnel, management and a tribunal, the Hyde side is frequently described as "evil"; Hyde is the real person, Jekyll is an act.” -  Tim Field  
“My pain may be the reason for somebody's laugh. But my laugh must never be the reason for somebody's pain.” -  Charlie Chaplin  
“I would rather be a little nobody, then to be a evil somebody.” -  Abraham Lincoln

THE LAW OF SUCCESS IN 16 LESSONS PART 6 - Episode 45
1772
 

This is the final episode of this special interconnected series within the series focusing on Napoleon Hill’s powerful book THE LAW OF SUCCESS IN 16 LESSONS. In whatever walk of life you are in, WANTING TO BE SUCCESSFUL is a universal theme that I felt vital to explore here on the show and this book based on Napoleon Hills own lecture tour I felt was the key to it’s delivery.


 


Now if you’ve not yet heard the previous shows on this topic then I’d strongly advise you to go back and listen to episodes 40 through 44 before listening to this one. Seriously, go back now and get listening, or you will not get the best out of this series.
 


The content in these shows has been my interpretation or direct quotation of NAPOLEON HILL’s words from the book with here and there a sprinkling of information gleaned from Hill’s later life. The main change I make in all of this is in neutralising the gender every now and again simply because I want to make the lessons as accessible for today’s audience as Hill intended it to be in 1928. As proven by Lesson 15, Hill was all about tolerance, equality and inclusion and he wouldn’t want his words of 1928 to be misinterpreted as something intolerant to the ear of a 21st-century audience.

Quotes:
 
“That which you do not wish for yourself, DO NOT IMPOSE ON OTHERS.” -  Umar
“DO NOT DO TO OTHERS what angers you IF DONE TO YOU BY OTHERS.” - Socrates
“Nothing in the Golden Rule says that others will treat us as we have treated them. It only says that we must treat others in a way that we would want to be treated.” -  Rosa Parks
“It takes considerable knowledge just to realize the extent of your own ignorance.” - Thomas Sowell
“When people get used to preferential treatment, equal treatment seems like discrimination.” -  Thomas Sowell

“Clothes and manners do not make the man; but when he is made, they greatly improve his appearance.” -  Arthur Ashe
“The way you dress is an expression of your personality.” - Alessandro Michele
“Ya know what I do almost every day? I wash. Personal hygiene is part of the package with me.” - Jim Carrey
“The hands of those I meet are dumbly eloquent to me. The touch of some hands is an impertinence. I have met people so empty of joy, that when I clasped their frosty finger-tips, it seemed as if I were shaking hands with a northeast storm. Others there are whose hands have sunbeams in them, so that their grasp warms my heart. It may be only the clinging touch of a child's hand; but there is as much potential sunshine in it for me as there is in a loving glance for others. A hearty handshake or a friendly letter gives me genuine pleasure.” - Helen Keller
“We continue to shape our personality all our life. If we knew ourselves to be perfect, we should die.” -  Albert Camus
“Accuracy builds credibility.” -  Jim Rohn
“It is fundamentally the confusion between effectiveness and efficiency that stands between doing the right things and doing things right. There is surely nothing quite so useless as doing with great efficiency that which should not be done at all.” -  Peter Drucker
“Accuracy is twin brother to honesty and inaccuracy to dishonesty.” - Nathaniel Hawthorne
“Whenever you do a thing, act as if all the world were watching.” - Thomas Jefferson
“Don't believe the hype.” -  Wyclef Jean
“One reason so few of us achieve what we truly want is that we never direct our focus; we never concentrate our power. Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in particular.” -  Tony Robbins
“You can't break a bad habit by throwing it out the window. You've got to walk it slowly down the stairs.” -  Mark Twain

1935
 

This is the third part of my breakdown of Napoleon Hill’s powerful book THE LAW OF SUCCESS IN 16 LESSONS but if you’ve not yet heard the previous episodes in this particular series then I’d strongly advise you to go back and check out episodes 40 and 41 before listening to this one.


 


My aim here is to give you a fleeting glimpse of the power that lies within the pages of the book. In the show notes for this episode I will give a link to A FREE DOWNLOAD OF A PUBLIC DOMAIN .MOBI VERSION OF THE COMPLETE TEXT which will play in many free e-readers. In the show notes of the last episode, I gave a similar link to a KINDLE VERSION and in episode 39 a PDF VERSION. These can all be accessed via the official website filmproproductivity.com

Here we are now with part 2 of Napoleon Hill’s powerful book THE LAW OF SUCCESS IN 16 LESSONS, and before I get into it, IF YOU’VE NOT YET HEARD THE PREVIOUS EPISODE, which covers the introduction and the first two lessons in this series then you should really go back and check it out.

THE LAW OF SUCCESS IN 16 LESSONS PART 1 - Episode 40
1663
Over the next six episodes, I will be introducing you to the concepts and principles which he first presented in his very powerful book THE LAW OF SUCCESS IN 16 LESSONS – It’s the book that his more well-known work Think and Grow Rich was based on as well as many many other self-help books and concepts which we find discussed in productivity circles today - And if you think you’ve got nothing to learn from something written nearly a hundred years ago, then think again. This is potent stuff.

Quotes:
“You cannot push any one up a ladder unless he is willing to climb a little by himself.” -  Andrew Carnegie
“Success is a very profound and interesting thing because the line of demarcation between success and failure is so slight that it is often hard to see where one ends and the other begins.” - Napoleon Hill
“Humility leads to strength and not to weakness. It is the highest form of self-respect to admit mistakes and to make amends for them.” John J. McCloy
"You Can Do It if You Believe You Can!"  - Napoleon Hill
“No man has a chance to enjoy permanent success until he begins to look in a mirror for the real cause of all his mistakes.” Napoleon Hill
“Suppose your definite chief aim is far above your present station in life. What of it? It is your privilege - nay, your DUTY, to aim high in life.” - Napoleon Hill
“It has been found that a group of six or seven salespeople may use the law so effectively that their sales may be increased to unbelievable proportions.” He adds the caveat though that “It is strictly for minds who trust each other and are interested in the good success of all parties involved.” - Napoleon Hill
“My default is self-destruction, and anything on top of that is a bloody lot of work.” -  Gillian Anderson

DON'T DO ME A FAVOUR - Episode 39
1298
 

Today I’m going into another in my TELL IT LIKE IT IS series of shows which have proven to be very successful in the past – These are episodes where I talk about a problem which it’s likely we may all have come up against but which out of politeness or awkwardness or some other reason we just don’t discuss. This is one which has bit me in the ass a good few times over the years. Before I get into it though, I am increasingly conscious that I may come across as a moaning old git, but I do draw upon my own experiences for these shows and offer them up in good spirit not in the name of negativity but as signposts of danger, and with the hope that through my failures you will prosper.

SWIM FOR YOUR LIFE - Episode 37
1057
Today I’m releasing release two shorter more on point episodes. This episode SWIM FOR YOUR LIFE is the first show where I’ve talked about fitness… it’s a very limited immersion (pun very much intended) in a topic that I feel may make a big difference to your life if you can go with it. There’s plenty of other stuff in here too if you are a non-swimmer so stay tuned! Now not only is STAYING ACTIVE one of the ESSENTIAL 5 A DAY FOR GOOD MENTAL HEALTH elements, but it’s also vital if you are to be as productive as you possibly can be.

HOW DO YOU EAT AN ELEPHANT? - Episode 38

In today’s episode, I’m going to be talking once again about HABITS. I’ve gone into them before in episode 13 - HABIT FORMING FOR A BETTER LIFE and I will be coming back to them again. The more you do something, the stronger and more efficient the connection becomes. Habit-forming, you see, is yet another essential part of self-improvement.

DEVELOPING A SENSE OF URGENCY - Episode 35
882
I talked about A SENSE OF URGENCY last season in my episode entitled DRIVE, but for me, it’s really one of the cornerstones of productivity itself. John Kotter’s quote there says it very well. This is not about panic, anxiety or fear (although you may have to fight them off a wee bit along the way) it’s about killing complacency and replacing it with something else. An "inner energy" that drives your forward, to complete on your plans, to hit deadlines and to achieve great things.
 

For a full transcript of this episode please go to the official website https://www.filmproproductivity.com/
 
Quotes:
“A higher rate of urgency does not imply ever-present panic, anxiety, or fear. It means a state in which COMPLACENCY is virtually absent.” - Professor of Leadership at the Harvard Business School, John P. Kotter
“If your bias for action is to put it off till tomorrow then you need to start reprogramming yourself and get rid of that delaying crutch. Change up your tempo to something a bit more lively, and as I’ve warned many times before - don’t wait for the planets to get into just the right alignment before you move – if you do that, THE RIGHT TIME will slip through your fingertips. BUILD MOMENTUM – remember it’s much easier to keep a body in motion than it is to initiate that motion.” - BRYAN TRACY
“Everyone should have a sense of urgency – it is getting a lot done in a short period of time in a calm, confident manner.”  - Bob Proctor

WHY IT’S OK TO GIVE UP - Episode 31
684
 

If you Google why you SHOULD GIVE UP ON STUFF you’ll get a thousand hits that say the exact opposite - the message is strong and positive and seemingly sensible – NEVER GIVE UP – but this is not a black and white issue - there’s nuance here – You’ve already caught the episode title, and I say – let’s just wait a second here – and talk about this.

This show is the last of season 2 and today I will encourage you yet again to take control of your life and work and dreams and ambitions by adopting the productivity techniques that I have talked about here on this podcast. Call it a motivational talk if you will, but by recapping on some of the key techniques I have introduced here, I will show you how you can gain back control of your life and take positive action to move forward.
For a full transcript of this episode please go to the official website https://www.filmproproductivity.com/

“The first step to getting what you want is to have the courage to get rid of what you don’t.” - Zig Ziglar

SHOOT WITH WHAT YOU'VE GOT - Episode 26
1402
(Edit August 2020 - I should have called this "Start With What You've Got" as it's a little less film-specific.) This lesson can be applied to any endeavour.
This week I’m postulating on why many of us spend so much time chasing after the next shiny new thing, whether that’s a bit of technology or whatever, or feel we have to wait for the planets to come into JUST the right alignment before we can even consider getting out there and doing something that we really want to do. For filmmakers, and I’ve discussed this several times with Ian O’Neill from the How They Did It Filmmaking Podcast, this comes down to the topic of just shooting with what you’ve got. That’s using the locations, contacts, equipment and cameras that you have easy access to, and not forever procrastinating over it.
For a full transcript of this episode please go to the official website https://www.filmproproductivity.com/
 
Quotes:
“Every director has at least 10 bad films in them.”  - Robert Rodriguez
“the first draft of everything is shit.” - Ernest Hemingway
“The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.”
“There is no failure except in no longer trying.” - American writer, publisher, artist, and philosopher Elbert Hubbard
“Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement.” - C.S. Lewis
“Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure.” - Napoleon Hill
“Fear of failure is a ticket to mediocrity. If you’re not failing from time to time, you’re not pushing yourself. And if you’re not pushing yourself, you’re coasting.” - Eric Zorn
“Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.” - Nathaniel Hawthorne  
 “Success is getting what you want; happiness is wanting what you get.” - Canadian novelist W.P. Kinsella
“I always say shopping is cheaper than a psychiatrist.” - Tammy Faye Bakker
Robert Rodriguez says “Creativity, not money, is used to solve problems.”
He famously said in his 10-minute film school video which I’ll link to in the show notes, but he said “Don’t dream about being a filmmaker, You are a filmmaker. Now let’s get down to business.” And he says “…get experience, you’ll learn more from picking up a camera from your own mistakes than you will learn about it in film school.”, and if that doesn’t short circuit your fear of failure excuses then I don’t know what will.
Herman Melville “It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.” I say it is through originality, that you will truly find success and ultimately happiness.
It's easier making a smaller film like El Mariachi. There are no budget worries because there is no budget. There is no crew problem because there is no crew. And if you screw up, no one is around to see you screw up -- so it's no longer a screw up …So don't give me any money, don't give me any people, but give freedom, and I'll give you a movie that looks gigantic.” - Robert Rodriguez

TOXIC PEOPLE AND HOW TO DEAL WITH THEM - Episode 24
1386
Today I’m tackling a subject which I think every one of us faces at least every now and again. It’s one of a series of episodes where I TELL IT LIKE IT IS. The SERIES 1 TIMEWASTERS episode was in the same vein and hugely popular and generated a lot of activity on social media and I suspect that my episode of a few weeks ago – COLLABO-HATERS will go down just as well. Today I will be talking about all different forms of TOXIC people, advising you how to SPOT them, how to AVOID them and how to get rid of them.
For a full transcript of this episode please go to the official website https://www.filmproproductivity.com/
 
Quotes:
“Toxic people attach themselves like cinder blocks tied to your ankles, and then invite you for a swim in their poisoned waters.” I found that quote on Tumblr and it’s by John Mark Green.
“An energy vampire can never “steal” energy from us unless we consciously or unconsciously permit them to.” ― Mateo Sol
“Just because some people are fuelled by drama doesn't mean you have to attend the performance.”  - Personal coach Cheryl Richardson
“Manipulators use diversion tactics such as, not giving a straight answer or steering the conversation to another topic.” - Author, Sarah Nielsen
"Watch out for those types who deliberately tear other people down. One day, they will tear you down too," cautions writer Nurjean Chaneco.
 “It’s amazing how quickly things can turn around when you remove toxic people from your life.” - Robert Tew

RUMINATING ON RUMINATION - Episode 22
1325
On this week’s show, I talk about RUMINATING. I mentioned it in passing on THE INNER CRITIC episode 6 but I expand on it here and offer solutions.

BAD COLLABORATIONS - Episode 20
1773
On today’s show, I will be talking about a subject that no one ever seems to discuss but it’s one that creatives have to endure perhaps more often than most. Whereas I can admit that sometimes collaborating on a venture can be awesome, there are times when it just ISN’T a good idea for productivity or for your sanity or career or goals or bank balance to do so. I’ll also discuss specific types of collaborator that you MUST learn to avoid.
For a full transcript of this episode please go to the official website https://www.filmproproductivity.com/
 
Quotes:
“When I was a kid, there was no collaboration; it's you with a camera bossing your friends around. But as an adult, filmmaking is all about appreciating the talents of the people you surround yourself with and knowing you could never have made any of these films by yourself.” - Steven Spielberg
Harry Truman once said that "It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit."
James McAvoy - “Filmmaking is a miracle of collaboration.”
Indian spiritual master, Amit Ray - “Collaboration has no hierarchy. The Sun collaborates with soil to bring flowers on the earth."

THE FOUR DISCIPLINES OF EXECUTION - Episode 19
1378
Today we’ll be delving into a business productivity system called the 4 DISCIPLINES OF EXECUTION aka the 4DX which I believe will be applicable to the world of creatives like film pros.
For a full transcript of this episode please go to the official website https://www.filmproproductivity.com/
 
Quotes:
“Stay focused - go after your dreams and keep moving toward your goals.” - LL Cool J
The book THE FOUR DISCIPLINES OF EXECUTION says “The real enemy of execution is your day job! We call it the whirlwind. It’s the massive amount of energy that’s necessary just to keep your operation going on a day‐to‐day basis; and, ironically, it’s also the thing that makes it so hard to execute anything new. The whirlwind robs from you the focus required to move your team forward.”
And it goes on to say that “The whirlwind is urgent and it acts on you and everyone working for you every minute of every day. The goals you’ve set for moving forward are important, but when urgency and importance clash, urgency will win every time."
Jim Huling says that “Execution starts with focus.” and Jim Rohn said “Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.” - Discipline #1 is THE DISCIPLINE OF FOCUS. The first discipline requires sustaining the whirlwind at its current level while you advance towards what it calls one WILDLY IMPORTANT GOAL or WIG - W.I.G. A Wildly Important Goal, it actually says one or two but let’s keep it simple –remember the more you try to get done, the lower the odds of success of each of the goals you seek to achieve.
The book says “Once you stop worrying about everything else going backwards, you can start moving forward on your WIG.”
The book also says If you ignore the urgent, it can kill you today. It’s also true, however, that if you ignore the important, it can kill you tomorrow.
Dwight D. Eisenhower said that “What is important is seldom urgent and what is urgent is seldom important.”
Author Catherine Pulsifer said “at the end of the day we are accountable to ourselves - our success is a result of what we do.
“Productivity is never an accident. It is always the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort.” - Paul J. Meyer

PROTECTING YOUR MENTAL ENERGY - Episode 18
1263
Today I am going to be talking about Mental Energy and why ABOVE ALL THINGS it must be protected. I’ll talk about what it is, how to ensure it isn’t wasted and the huge difference that protecting it will make to your life.
For a full transcript of this episode please go to the official website https://www.filmproproductivity.com/
 
Quotes:
“Mental energy is the world’s hottest commodity. People are going to try to steal it, drain it, and suck it up every second you’re awake. Yet very few of us protect it. Few of us know how.” - Isaiah Hankel
“Our fatigue is often caused not by work, but by worry, frustration and resentment.” - Dale Carnegie
“Mental energy is YOUR MOST VALUABLE ASSET. Without it, you won’t have the enthusiasm, motivation, drive, and physical energy to live a full rich life. - The problem is this asset DEPRECIATES RAPIDLY every day.” - Isaiah Hankel
“Taking back your mental energy is not a cakewalk. It’s a dogfight.” Says Isaiah Hankel
“Your mental energy is going to plummet throughout the day, certainly. But that’s not a bad thing. It’s only bad if it’s being wasted on people and activities that are pivoting you away from true success. Be selective and start saving your most valuable resource—mental energy—for the best things in life, not the worst.” Isaiah Hankel
Arthur Somers Roche - “Worry is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind. If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained.”

Coming Soon - A Season 2 Preview
357
 
Hello and welcome to this preseason mini-episode of the show which continues to do well and today the figures say that it’s actually up 11.8% over the previous 14 days of downloads. I’ve been working very hard to ensure that the new season is filled with awesome, mind-expanding and motivational PRODUCTIVITY ADVICE, not just for film pros, but which is largely accessible to all.
I have been preparing  12 new episodes which will officially launch on the 24th of this month with episode 17. That show looks at what fuels our INNER DRIVE and gives us momentum.
The season will as before be released at 7pm on Sunday nights we will run right through till mid-May.
Episode 18 is called Protecting Your Mental Energy and looks specifically at how protecting that finite resource will make a vast difference to your life.
Episode 19 investigates how to act on the plans and strategies that you have put together to move forward. Many of your strategies will fall down in their execution but there are ways to combat this.
Episode 20 talks about how sometimes, collaborating with other creatives can be a complete nightmare. It details the problems that can arise and how to get around them.
Episode 21 tackles that most common of productivity problems PROCRASTINATION. It talks about what it is, why it happens and how to deal with it.
Cracking on with Episode 22 I raise a subject, not often discussed but one which can really mess up your creativity and your mental health. That episode is all about the nasty piece of work we call RUMINATION.
In Episode 23 I dive headlong into a top which is plaguing the modern age and is known as the MICROWAVE MINDSET. I’ll talk about how the fast and furious way of doing things is not always the best strategy and why slow and steady, oo err missus, wins the day.
Episode 24 is all about TOXIC PERSONALITY TYPES and is another in my very popular series of TELL IT HOW IT IS episodes. Just like my season 1 episode TIMEWASTERS and HOW TO DEAL WITH THEM and Episode 21 BAD COLLABORATORS (Which I laughingly call collabo-haters btw) shows, I’ll investigate 6 archetypes of toxic personality and give you a foolproof solution on how to deal with them.
Another popular episode from last year was my one on productivity apps. Episode 25 follows this up with a number of suggestions for browser plugins which will strengthen your productivity at absolutely no cost.
I think I’m going to change my Episode 26 topic to that of SHOOT WITH WHAT YOU’VE GOT. I’ve still to record episodes 25-28 so I reserve that right as I batch record these episodes before the season launches to ensure their delivery. At the moment it’s on my board as Jealousy, Anger and Regret, but I think that may sit better in Season 3.
Episode 27 is a follow up to the season one Episode 5 Awesome Apps to make you more productive and is called, wait for it, 5 more awesome (and mostly fee) apps to make you more productive. I didn’t know how those eps would be received but they are remarkably popular so I’ll keep on going with them.
The season will end with Episode 28 in which I think I’m going to present a good old motivational speech. Now I reserve the right to change my mind and I have a Plan B backup topic of the 16 Laws of Success. You’ll just have to wait and see.
John Green says in Paper Towns that “The pleasure isn't in doing the thing, the pleasure is in planning it.” It’s a total party here at my end making some 3 and a half hours of solo content, NOT, but I do it all for you.
Please stand by for the new season. It’ll be with you before you know it.
Mark Twain said that to succeed in life you need two things. Ignorance and Confidence. I have both in spades.
And Abraham Lincoln’s perhaps most famous quote, as I see it anyway, is “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”
I’m still sharpening the axe here, but the 1st episode of episode of season 2 will be my first swing at the tree. I hope you’ll join me by spreading the word, subscribing and leaving an awesome review.
You can follow the show on Twitter @filmproprodpod and on Facebook @filmproproductivity. You can also get in touch using the filmproproductivity.com contact page. If you have any requests for future episode topics please do drop me a line or use the speak pipe recorder on the contact page and leave me a voice mail.
I should probably end this episode by saying something positive.
I’ll use the words of Lyndon B. Johnson
“Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose.”
Now take control of your own destiny, keep on shootin’, get your productivity socks on and stand by for Season 2, of film pro productivity!

MULTITASKING, THE MYTH - Episode 10
720
This week I am talking about multitasking and why it’s a bad thing for productivity. You’ve likely heard the old adage that HE WHO CHASES TWO RABBITS, CATCHES NEITHER – or maybe you prefer SHE WHO CHASES MANY RABBITS CATCHES NONE. Simply doing one thing at a time is the most direct way to be EFFICIENT and ultimately PRODUCTIVE in what you set out to do. If you “chase too many rabbits” or too many “goals and objectives” simultaneously then you will likely find that you end up with none of them at all.

Quotes:
Concentrating on a single task is one aspect of something called FLOW, or the FLOW state of mind. WIKIPEDIA says about this, quote “In positive psychology, flow, also known as being in THE ZONE, is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. In essence, flow is characterized by complete absorption in what one does, and a resulting loss in one's sense of space and time.” Put simply then, if you are jumping about you really will never hit any sort of flow.
New York Times Columnist David Brooks points out that “A person who is interrupted while performing a task takes 50% more time to complete it and make 50% more errors.”

FOUR HACKS TO BEAT PROCRASTINATION - Episode 9
804
On this show I’m going to squeeze in 4 more productivity “rules” that I know will make your life easier and continue to help you to beat procrastination and just get things done. I’m talking about the one-touch rule, and it’s close cousin the two minute, then I will move on to the 5-minute rule and the 10-minute rule. These rules have much in common but if you can get to grips with them individually they’ll help you to decimate your task lists and kick procrastination right in the mammy daddy button.

Quotes:
Procrastination is one of the most common and deadliest of diseases and its toll on success and happiness is heavy. Wayne Gretzky a Canadian Athlete came up with that one and I love it, but more commonly I hear
“Never put off till tomorrow what may be done day after tomorrow just as well.”
― Mark Twain
