WHAT ARE SMART GOALS? Episode 72

The SMART goal setting system is a simple productivity technique that will help you to plan out and set realistic and achievable goals. To find out more, have a listen. You can read the full transcript for this episode on the official website https://www.filmproproductivity.com/ QUOTES: You should Focus on what it is that you want and set a realistic goal. Start setting goals that you feel you can accomplish and don't try to go right to the top in one leap. Every time you accomplish one goal you develop the strength and wisdom to accomplish the next one. Chuck Norris What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals. Michelangelo Buonarroti Don't look at the big picture as the only achievement. Start with set, smart goals and work up to something bigger. Jordyn Wieber The great majority of people are “wandering generalities” rather than “meaningful specifics”. The fact is that you can't hit a target that you can't see. If you don't know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else. You have to have goals.

I've been conned a couple of times, but now I'm a little more savvy. Maggie Gyllenhaal Better to be occasionally cheated than perpetually suspicious. B.C.

SCAMS, LIES & DOUBLE DEALING (Part 1) - Episode 67

This episode is about creative scams. That’s scams that are aimed, not at the general public, but specifically at those working in the creative industries. QUOTES: It was the heart of any scam or fiddle -- keep the punter uncertain, or, if he is certain, make him certain of the wrong thing. Terry Pratchett We can all be conned but at what point do we realize that we're being conned and to what point do we allow ourselves to be conned? Guy Ritchie There is no doubt that the Internet brims with spamming, scamming and identity fraud. Having someone wipe out your hard drive or bank account has never been easier, and the tools for committing electronic mischief on your enemies are cheap and widely accessible. Evgeny Morozov Who is going to believe a con artist? Everyone, if she is good. Andy Griffith A lot of hackers set up scam sites. They can impersonate a site like PayPal, for instance. Michael Demon Calce Hollywood is largely about scammers and con men. It was my main livelihood for about 25 years, and the scams were beautiful and ugly, cheap and expensive, but, wow, were there a lot of scammers. Ben Stein The next show #68 is available now.
