In last week’s post, we considered the way that the isolation of Corvid has afforded us time and opportunity. Today, I’d like to return to a post from last year which is the gift that just keeps giving. I refer of course to Andrew Price’s seminar on the ‘Seven Habits of Highly Effective Artists.’ I think I must have watched it four or five times now and each time I do, I am alerted to something I am no longer putting into practice.
Recently, I have taken to posting advice on Quora which is a new one for me. I started around February of this year after reading Lucy V Hay’s excellent post on utilising Social Media. Anyway, as I was answering a question on how to be a successful director – not that I am one at all – I remembered Andrew Price’s talk. Listening again, I realised that I have lapsed in a few areas. The one that jumped out at me was the problem of seeking perfectionism of a project at the expense of the others I could be producing.
Okay, the skinny of his 20+ min talk (in my words) is at the bottom of the page though I would recommend watching it as there is something in it for everyone. (Whatever art you’re involved in).
