“Anything you build on a large scale or with intense passion invites chaos.” -Francis Ford Coppola
I’ve been trying to take my own advice and better organize both my personal and professional life. I’ve made great progress with my personal life, but have been struggling a bit more on the professional side.
At the beginning of the year, I set a goal to build out my professional career, in the hopes of mastering my new Film Producer role. And so I have been diving head first into industry resources such as Film Specific & the Independent Film Blog, stalking important & influential IMDb profiles, staying up-to-date on trade publications, and reading really thick books on film production and budgeting.
But recently, I’ve come to realize that my goal of organizing and driving my professional career doesn’t only apply to my Film Producer path — it also means the work I’ve been doing here, as The Chaos Whisperer. This is the area I’ve been neglecting, and now it needs some serious TLC.
The main thing The Chaos Whisperer needs is more . I need to hone in on what this business is really all about – who is my target audience, what value add am I really offering, and how can I best put that offer out there for others to experience?
I’ve been going over and over these questions in my head and I’ve started narrowing down to the answers, but it’s still slow going and I’m not there yet.
What could help me get there faster though is help from you all – my audience, my readers, my clients. It would actually be immensely constructive, and help me to help you even better, if I could hear from you:
What about The Chaos Whisperer do you find most valuable?
What do you wish The Chaos Whisperer would provide?
What part of your life (within personal or professional) do you find the most plagued by Chaos?
I want to step up my services as The Chaos Whisperer, and provide more clear and consumable solutions, but that’s going to be pretty tough to do without your feedback. So please feel free to comment here – share your thoughts, your roadblocks, your needs – and I promise I will give it all my full attention and consideration.
Thank you & I look forward to reading your comments!
