The Loneliest Number

Do your work, and I shall know you. Do your work, and you shall reinforce yourself.

One thing?  If I could choose one thing?  I’ve never been accused of being a person who could choose just one thing.  And that’s most likely my problem.  I’m the Jack of all trades… I’m mean a Renaissance Man.

I have always had a list of things that I’ve wanted to accomplish.  Often times the length of that list has prevented me from accomplishing anything.  Focusing on one goal at a time is the ultimate challenge for me.  Instead, I can have five projects going and never finish any of them.  A common trait of the right-brained.

One of the goals that I’d always had was to write a book, which I accomplished at the end of 2010.  Prior to this, I had written professionally for several years and completed a multitude of sitcom scripts.  However, what I found in writing all those scripts was that they had very little value unless they were produced.  By writing my book, I was dependent on no one but myself.  Also, I had something I could easily share with others.

At one point in writing my book, I knew that if I were to finish it, it would only happen if I dropped all my other projects.  I couldn’t take the time for the three or four other projects.  I had to put my energy into the book 100%.  It had to be the “one thing.”

So what is my one thing now?  I don’t feel at liberty to write it here.  Not yet.  But I am setting out a plan and preparing myself to focus.  I’m putting everything else on hold.  (Although I did receive a tweet from Casper Van Dien today, so I may have to dust off one of my scripts and send it his way… I hope he’ll consider something that doesn’t feature giant alien bugs.)

I’m figuring that the loneliest number, that “one thing,” will lead to a multitude of opportunity.
