My name is roddy lindsay and I am the author of this book. I am a photographer, writer, adventurer, and a self-proclaimed fan of all things crazy. I love to write, travel and make crazy music. I’m a huge fan of all things “out there” and am currently living the dream with my husband, our four children, and a pet monkey named Jack.
I’ve been writing this book since September, 2012. I have been in a relationship with a woman for the past five years. I have been living through a crazy time in my life including having two dogs and a cat, and I have a new job, a new business, and a new life. During this time I have had to learn many new skills, have had to grow my own food, learn to use new tools and learn to embrace a more relaxed lifestyle.
I’ve had to learn that my children are not my children and that there are many things that can be done in better and more efficient ways. I’ve had to learn that I am not a failure, that I am a role model for my three children, and that I am not their mother. I’ve had to learn that I can’t make my children laugh every single day, and that sometimes I just need to stop and be quiet because they are going to scream if I don’t.
This is the second in a series of posts that will be going live at 4pm PST today. It’s a series of posts about the difference between being productive and being productive. I’ll be speaking with author/blogger, roddy lindsay from www.happyshopping.com, about what he’s learned and learned from his own experience.
I agree with roddy because I believe it is critical to be productive. When you are in the middle of doing something that you feel you should be doing but isn’t because you are so busy you cant be. Myself, I struggle to really achieve my goals unless I take a break, unless I stop and take some time to slow down and realize I dont have to be 100% on the ball to achieve things.
Another good way to take a break is to take a break from work and write. In fact, a few of my favorite authors have said that they do not write unless they have a certain point of focus. A good example of this was a quote from Robert McKee who wrote: “I don’t write unless I have something to write about. I write with my feet up eating lunch or my head down writing.
Like a lot of people, I have recently been working on a book about my time in the industry. The book is called a few things.
The book is called a few things. But really, it’s a collection of essays on various aspects of working in the film and video game industries. It’s supposed to be a collection of things to do as you work through your freelance and full-time jobs. It’s got a few funny essays, but the most important part comes in the final chapter which touches on why I work.
So, yeah. Its a book. That’s probably one of the most important things it’s going to say. You have to know why you do what you do. Its a way to prove that you’re not just another guy who just got a job and put out a video on the web about how he works.
Some things in life really don’t matter if you’re working a single day, or you just do what you do when you’ve got a job on a movie set.
