  • Guys, I just want to say thank you for being exactly like me! it’s almost inspiring to know that people I aspire to be like (in a work / job sense) procrastinate and struggle to focus on achieving goals like I and I’m sure many others do to.

    I have kids myself so I can totally get where Chad is coming from. I only discovered Cinema four years ago after the birth of our first child and as such the time I would have liked to indulge in learning the program was severely limited, and then we had two more so there was a point around two years ago where I didn’t even go near it for six months. But I always thought when I slowly get back little pockets of spare time I’ll get back into it and I’m at a stage now where I spend a couple of hours a day commuting but practicing on my laptop, stuff like edge flow and topology tactics – I’m massively into the teachings of Toby Pitman – and like Chad mentions I will use these hours to ‘sketch’ stuff then when I’m home, after dinner and childrens’ stories etc I spend a bit more time on the procedures. I also found that removing the pressure of self-imposed time constraints has massively helped, like I used to say ‘I want to nail this whatever by the end of this month’ and then get all frustrated when I didn’t get any spare time or was having to work too much – I’m a freelance retoucher –  so by switching from giving myself a deadline (like, who needs more deadlines!) I focus more on achieving the goal in any given time. It’s learning that skill that’s important not the speed in which you acquire it.

    Thanks again for a great podcast and excellent resource of valuable material. Keep up the good work!
