I made the mistake of being satisfied with how much I’d done the week before in regards to my audio work. I’ve done a decent job of staying on the move the previous few weeks, but that shouldn’t mean I can ease up. I’ve been slowly becoming complacent and being satisfied with the work I do for AndrewsUK. I have eased off on the number of auditions and seeking out other opportunities since I’ve been working with them, content to let them send work to me. AndrewsUK has provided me with many titles to work on, but I can record faster than they can supply me with titles. If I’m to work as a narrator full time I’m going to need a greater output.
I took this week to focus on other things, such as day job application, which is a good thing to do, but I need to make sure I’m not completely leaving my audio work for some other day. I have all the time I need to get done what needs to be done. It doesn’t matter if that’s submitting a bunch of auditions, if it’s networking, or anything in between. I have the time, I need to make sure I’m spending it.
I’m never satisfied with my own performances and I’m always striving to be a better performer, so I need to work at always trying to improve how I spend my time. I often do better when I have a lot going on, so I’ve been trying to increase my work load to encourage myself to be a bit stricter on myself and my time management. Self discipline is a good thing to learn and master!
That’s where I’m at currently. Improving my self discipline to better manage my time and make sure that I’m always taking the steps I need to, even if those steps are little. Little things can add up!
