    Great and inspirational video full of practical tips. My focus for 2019 is my TheXvid channel. I am commiting to complete four videos every month with a batch system, spending one week on each aspect of the video assembly process. 😊

    Hey! I've been really enjoying your channel! I'm a writer and I recently moved to Brisbane from the U.S. I also just retired from my professional dance career. So, since being new to Australia and new to a career in writing, I would love to meet like-minded people in the area. Do you have any Queensland networking events you'd recommend for creatives?

    Thank you so much for sharing - I LOVE the idea of systems vs goals. Don't her about this all that often at all. I use the system 12 Week Year (framework of continual feedback) and while it takes a lot of effort, definitely yields massive results xWBW

  • Jessica Butler

    I love these. They are so good. Also they work. Now, I can't claim to have succeeded in the "create one every week" but for the past few years I have always set a goal to write one short story every week. One of these years I will succeed. And just striving for that goal has resulted in more stories than if I hadn't. Either way it is a win.
    Also I have found copying to be incredibly helpful in many ways. Never used the copied material of course. But just the act of breaking something apart like that reveals so much.
    Thank you for sharing!

    Gosh, how do I keep my work area as clean & organized as yours? I have a sizable home office, but it is so hard to keep clean. No one uses it but me, so I can’t blame anyone but myself!
    Anyway, thanks for the inspiration. My issue is that I think something will interest me, and then in a week or two, I’m bored with it. Getting too old to keep switching goals!

    Ahh Michelle, you never fail to provide amazing advice.
    As I was listening and you were talking about "online courses" I thought to myself "not relevant to me... but then, no it actually really, really is! You sparked a part of my brain that I didn't know needed to be sparked! And that quality vs quanity talk - I really needed to hear that! Can't wait for the rest of the videos!
    Much love!

    Oh I like those ideas, though going to networking things (by myself) as someone with social anxiety seems like a big deal. I am really bad at starting conversations or keeping those going. My speciality is the awkward silence :D Any tips on how to get in touch with people without making a fool out of myself? Keep up the good stuff Thank you

      Anistha Ramanah Eye contact and actually starting a convo is soo hard :( but ill try my best.. thanks for the tips

    • Anistha Ramanah
      Anistha Ramanah 8 months ago +3

      Go slow!
      1. Make yourself comfortable around people first , no need to talk or anything, just make yourself comfy among people.
      2. Eye contact and smile. Practice eye contact on strangers by just smiling at them while maintaining eye contact.
      3. Small talk. Say hi ,how are you, thank you,... In a clear and confident manner.
      4. Have an actual conversation. The key is to ask open ended questions and to let the person do the talking while you listen and then just add to it by asking questions or just nodding,etc
      Don't think to much about it breath and relax.
      Practice! practice! practice!
      It honestly took me 2 years to completly overcome social anxiety and I had to go through many trials and error. So don't stress take your time, it's not going to happen overnight.
