The Process

I used to imagine that film directing was a fun job, until I found out that it was 95% agonizing over scripts, worrying about money and spending one’s life hunched over an editing table.

You can dream of being the auteur of the best movies in the world, but unless you actually like re-writing scripts and raising money and spending 14 hour days editing, you’re going to be pretty miserable.
The Buddhists call this “right livelihood”. The idea that without the right process, the reward is irrelevant.

Worry about the process, and the product will take care of itself.
