Just Put it Out There

In this excerpt, from one of our weekly Live Zoom calls with the 10,000 NOs Insiders Community, we discuss the value of speaking your ideas out loud so that others can build upon them with you and help you create something even better. Despite most people's fears that their ideas are going to be stolen and they're going to be cut out of the mix, the truth is that the idea is nothing without great execution. The saddest thing is to speak to someone who has been holding on to a "great idea" for years, waiting for the perfect time to release it to the world only to find that someone else beat them to it. You've got to risk failure if you want any chance at success.Monday Morsels are the short-form companion to our Friday Interviews of 10,000 NOs... brief riffs on the show's central topics & themes as food for thought to chew on throughout your week.It is not the critic who counts.

It's in the Doing

In this excerpt, from one of our weekly Live Zoom calls with the 10,000 NOs Insiders Community, we talk about that thing that hangs most people up: procrastination. Rather than talking about doing something, just do it and you'll find that anxiety goes down and, magically, the thing that you're doing becomes more enjoyable. This discussion is ultimately about reminding yourself that activities you think of as obligations are actually gifts that can bring you joy once you get into motion. And the reward is that once you do something enough, and make it a lasting habit, it eventually just becomes a part of you.Monday Morsels are the short-form companion to our Friday Interviews of 10,000 NOs... brief riffs on the show's central topics & themes as food for thought to chew on throughout your week.It is not the critic who counts.

Social Media: What Story Are You Telling?

In this excerpt, from one of our weekly Live Zoom calls with the 10,000 NOs Insiders Community, we continue the eternal debate of how much to expose on social media. Questions arise about how much vulnerability is the right amount and how many of our wins can we appropriately share without alienating our audience as a braggart. What we come to, among other things, is that sharing some of our own weaknesses and inconsistencies (which we all have... yes, even you) helps others to get to know us and hop on to our journey as we take it. While you likely don't want to expose your deepest, darkest fears to strangers, ultimately it's up to each one of us to decide how to tell our story and where and when to pull back.Monday Morsels are the short-form companion to our Friday Interviews of 10,000 NOs... brief riffs on the show's central topics & themes as food for thought to chew on throughout your week.It is not the critic who counts.

Things They Didn't Tell You in Acting Class

In this excerpt, from one of our weekly Live Zoom calls with the 10,000 NOs Insiders Community, we discuss how to approach big decisions in life that will have a larger impact on your career than you may realize when you first set out to chase your dream job. Primarily, we discuss logistics. For actors, this list includes decisions as seemingly simple as which city, how big of a market, which teacher to seek out to begin your training. While this may sound obvious to those of you in more traditional paths, for young people in a creative field, their passion can blind them from addressing the very big elephant in the room: how to sustain one's self through the lean years in a very fickle and competitive industry.Monday Morsels are the short-form companion to our Friday Interviews of 10,000 NOs... brief riffs on the show's central topics & themes as food for thought to chew on throughout your week.It is not the critic who counts.

Someone Somewhere is Talking Smack About You

In this excerpt, from one of our weekly Live Zoom calls with the 10,000 NOs Insiders Community, we discuss the fact that it's so easy to get knocked off course by haters and slingers of cyber mud who make you feel self-conscious about whatever path you're on. But the fact is that, particularly if you're in a public position, someone is likely saying less than charitable things about you behind your back right now. Rather than let their opinion of you effect your actions, it's wiser to accept that the smack-talk exists but choose not to chase a stranger's opinion of you. If you feel good about what you're doing, and your trusted inner circle of friends who have your best interests at heart agree that you're on the right path, that's all you need.Monday Morsels are the short-form companion to our Friday Interviews of 10,000 NOs... brief riffs on the show's central topics & themes as food for thought to chew on throughout your week.It is not the critic who counts.

Design Your Life Around Achieving Your Goals

In this excerpt, from one of our weekly Live Zoom calls with the 10,000 NOs Insiders Community, we highlight one of our VIPs, Shane Savage, an actor, coach, producer, director and all-around creative dynamo in Vancouver, BC. Shane discusses the importance of discipline and the specifics of designing your life, and each day, to achieve your goals rather than just talking about a wish-list of where you'd like to be without anchoring it to tangible habits that will actually make it happen.Monday Morsels are the short-form companion to our Friday Interviews of 10,000 NOs... brief riffs on the show's central topics & themes as food for thought to chew on throughout your week.It is not the critic who counts.
