We all want discipline in our lives, but it’s a lot of work. Discipline means doing what you’d rather not do to realize the goals you want to achieve. As a filmmaker who wants to stay in business for the long run, it will be discipline that gets you there.
On today’s solo episode, I want to talk about some of my hard-learned lessons in becoming profitable. It was developing a sense of discipline that allowed me to work smartly, efficiently, and effectively.
Over the years, I’ve gained tools that allow me to profit more and keep my business sustainable. Central to this is creating target goals for your year. You need to know what you want to achieve. Then you can work backward from that goal to put in place the necessary actionable steps. I do this every year. It informs what I do every day.
During this time, I’ve discovered and honed several other great tools and strategies to foster discipline. This means not looking at my phone until I’ve achieved something. I’ve created a quiet space for contemplation and have a plan for each day. I create a morning routine to get into the daily rhythm and avoid interruptions. I promise that you’ll get more done for your video business once you incorporate these steps into your regular habits.
