It doesn’t matter if you’re an actor, a writer, a working musician or a successful CEO, all you need to start your next big project are two things:
1) A clear vision of exactly where you want to go and what you intend to achieve.
2) A ruthless promise (to yourself and others) that you will get there.
You don’t need to know how you’re going to get there.
You don’t need to know how you’re going to pay for it.
You don’t need to know who’s going with you.
You don’t even need to know how much, how many, or how come?
You just need to stand tall on your own two feet, point a steady finger in the direction you want to go and make an unbreakable promise that “come hell or high water” you’ll get there.
Important because to the degree your destination is clear, and to the degree you keep your promises, to that degree all the important details will noticeably reveal themselves along the way. Not like hopeful positive thinking, more like constructing a tabletop puzzle.
