One of the most common mistakes I see people making when pursuing their Hollywood dream is a lack of strategy.
I know it sounds crazy because most people believe there is no possible strategy when it comes to a Hollywood dream, but after working in the industry for 9 years, I promise you, it does exist and you should be using it.
I swear the phrase “I’ll do it later” was invented by kids who didn’t want to do their chores.
When we were younger, that phrase meant the thing we said we’ll do was at the bottom of our priority list. It was this phrase we thought would magically convince our parents that we would, in fact, complete the task, but in a very nebulous time frame.
The consequences of using that phrase were limited to chores being completed at the absolute last moment—essentially living in a mess for as long as we could get away with.
