Peter Kaufman, LA-based entertainment lawyer and cool-bloggin' host of the DealFatigue blog site, posted an interesting and insightful essay recently -- Getting Out Of Getting In Your Own Way -- in which he lamented the strange way that so many people will work so hard to avoid having to do any of the easy stuff required to put themselves in best position for success.
A great many would-be screenwriters (actually, armchair dreamers of every stripe and persuasion) could stand to read the piece and then take a few minutes to really stop and think about its implications and applicability in their own lives and pursuits.
Then again, maybe my own needs and hopes are better served by a less well-prepared array of peers and competitors... so maybe you kids oughta just ignore what he says.
Yes. I think so -- better that you just ignore that post. Continue down the same path you are now on.
Make it just that much easier for me.
