routine tweaks

I’ve been making some slight tweaks to my routine of late. These are TWO of them.

1. What has had a tremendous effect on me in 2014?  Making my bed in the morning.

Why? One thing done. Little things matter.  This one simple task will give you momentum to get other things done throughout the day.

Apparently in Navy Seal training the first thing they would inspect is your BED. It had to be made first thing in the morning AND to perfection. Mine isn’t made to perfection, but it feels good to get one thing done.

2. Another is cell phone reminder at 2 pm and 3 pm that sends a note to me asking  “What are you doing now?”

Around 2pm and 3 pm I notice I get a bit lazy. I start checking youtube or facebook.

So this simple little message reminds to focus on my To Do Tasks for the day which are at about 3-5.

Future tweaks:

I wanna experiment with selfcontrolapp.com .  It prevents you from checking facebook, youtube etc and keeps you productive.

Anyways that’s all for now! Off to bed.

made a short film

On Friday, April 5th, 2013 at 7: 00  pm sharp, myself and a few others stepped into the famed Calgary video shop Casablanca.

We received a sealed envelope from a Count Dracula dressed character. He wished us good luck and then kept staring at us as we walked out.

Inside the envelope we were given our mission details.

We had to make a short film in 48 hours for the Calgary Underground Film Festival.  We had to use a spider prop in the film, we had to use the line ” You’re doomed, You’re all doomed!”  And it had to be in the Found Footage genre in the vein of say Blair Witch Project and Cloverfield.

So given the monstrosity of this project we decided to have copious amounts of drinks that night. You know? To brain storm.

We didn’t actually start filming until Saturday of that weekend at around 1 pm.

More like 20 hour film festival!

Anyways, it was fun times despite the chilly weather. We had a talented musician  make custom beats for us, Dangerous Dave did the video work. Rest of us pitched ideas as we went. It was our first time entering into a film fest!

Anyways enough writing.. grab a drink and enjoy:
