Im excited to say it looks like I’ll be up in Edinburgh running a gig at the festival this year (2017).
I’m going to organise some get-togethers to talk about the kinds of things I write about here, and also maybe some common practical challenges we all face in doing these brilliant things we do.
What could we discuss?
What could we try and fix?
– Looking after ourselves.
– Finding the right people to work with.
– Bums on seats / finding audiences.
– ‘The Industry’. (As in the mechanics of creative industries, what dont we like, what could we change, what shouldnt still ‘be a thing’)
Thats just a few ideas to get us going, what would you like to talk about?
I’ll be spending time thinking about more possibilities.
Get in touch, maybe we can make a thing!
Individually we can achieve A LOT.
Together we can make INCREDIBLE things happen.
Who can you talk to this week and do a thing?
What are you doing right now?
What are you working on?
What do you believe, really believe, about both the task / project and your ability to complete it? Be honest, don’t hide.
Write them down.
Take a good look at them, for each one ask yourself “is this a USEFUL belief?”.
THEN ASK – is it true? ARE YOU SURE?
If it’s not useful, or not true, consider what a more useful belief would be?
Commit to developing the more useful belief.
Repeat the useful thought over and over.
Make a picture in your mind of the task / project completed, enjoy it!
Make a picture of YOU in your mind, the YOU that believes the more useful thing.
How does that feel?
Everyone has something to offer the scene / people they seek to serve.
You can DO SOMETHING NOW for your industry / community / friends / family / followers / subscribers / customers / clients.
Ask a question, write a blog, post a chorus on instagram, recommend a performance.
