“You must concentrate upon and consecrate yourself wholly to each day, as though a fire were raging in your hair.” Deshimaru
Yeow, that must hurt and the smell of burning hair is not very pleasant. But even though it is unpleasant, it is something that must be done. Everyday that you do not accomplish something that can lead to your success is another day wasted. There are so many aspects of this art that you have to be aware of in order to succeed. You can never sit back and wait for things to happen.
You should start each day with a physical and vocal warm-up. You should do some “business” related activity everyday. This could include going to auditions, writing a “thank you” for an audition, sending out pictures and resumes, pounding the pavement, or updating pictures and resumes. You should learn about an aspect of the profession that you are not knowledgeable in, for instance, the technical side. Finally, you should do something uplifting, read a play, see a production, talk to someone you respect in the field.
This is a full schedule. You may not think it possible to accomplish even half these things in your busy day. But if you want to be an actor, you should live your dream twenty four hours a day. If you are not willing to, there are plenty of other people who will make that commitment.
