entertainment industry coach question 636: In a funk? What do you plan to do differently in 2011?
This is a question for you my loyal reader, because even though it's the holiday season, when people are supposed to be at their jolliest, I'm not finding that to be the case.
Many of my clients are postponing their appointments until after the new year because they want to "save them" for a fresh start. There seems to be a feeling of discouragement in the air. Historically, this has been a slower time for our industry. It's when the studios pretty much shut down, and then it trickles down. Shows go on hiatus, scripts stop being bought...
But it's temporary. Things will pick up again. So, if you're one of those people who are in a funk right now, why? Are you disappointed by your results of 2010 and therefore find it hard to kick back and enjoy the holidays? Or do you feel hopeless about 2011, because why should anything change for you?
Either way, today is today. Tomorrow will be tomorrow. Time will keep passing by, so why not make a choice of one risk you are committed to taking next year, and three business habits you commit to implement next year, and then sit back and let go... and of course, allow yourself to enjoy the holidays!
