It strikes me that many of us learned, very early in life, there was a huge payoff in drawing attention to the fact that we were upset. There was real value in complaining to your mother that something was wrong. However, as we get older, the strategy begins to produce diminishing returns. What are the consequences?
Being still at the beginning of the year, it’s not too late to talk about goal-setting - indeed, a week or so into January, it’s maybe around now that first indications appear that those fine and sparkly resolutions we made are beginning to look a bit tarnished? If that’s not the case - brilliant - however, as actors we’re particularly aware of the "slings and arrows of outrageous fortune" and I thought a conversation with my personal development coach wife, Sharon Bott, to look at the particular concerns that actors have about determining how life is going to go may be apposite.
I host an occasional video streaming chat - called, amazingly, ActorChat TV, that uses the Blab platform. By way of kicking things off and because it was easy to do, we did a live broadcast entitled ‘Actors & Goal Setting’ and the rest of this podcast is the audio recording of it. If you would prefer to watch the conversation, here is the YouTube recording of the Blab.
