SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
On Not So Serious Sunday, we talk about how identifying with our dreams can become a painful ordeal.  When we learn how to have lives with other interests and pursuits we can discover a whole new meaning and perspective to our vocations.

POINT #1: “GET A HOBBY OR DISCIPLINE”
-Whether you’re an actor, a writer, a musician or filmmaker — whatever it is, it’s important that you have another interest that’s unrelated to your art.  It helps refill the well and lends perspective on what you do.

POINT #2: “SLAVE TO THE GAME”
-Claim your power of choice.  If you choose to play the games of the industry, that’s fine — know what you’re in for and go for it.  If it’s not your interest, learn to blaze your own path or take a step back and reevaluate your sense of purpose and connection to it.

POINT #3: “THERE WILL BE BLOOD”
-It doesn’t matter our level of “success” or how far we ascend the ladder, we will come up against new challenges.  You can resist it or you can be present to it and move through it, finding a new appreciation for where you are.

“It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly my darling…”
― Aldous Huxley, Island
