This weekend I had the privilege of working with some very talented people. These friends of mine helped me bring my creative vision to life and offered tremendous effort in doing so. While there is still post-production work to do, the experience thus far has re-defined gratitude for me.
Leadership and Gratitude
If you want to feel fulfilled, act on your passions. If you want to feel gratitude, expand your vision and give others a role in it.
First, understand what their passions are. If you know what gets them excited, you can find a way to best utilize their talent. Doing this will provide them an outlet to act on their passions, though yours. Give in this way and they will give you the world in return.
And “utilize” might sound like a dirty word in terms of benefiting from others. I assure you, it isn’t. If you like to play video games and a gaming convention gives you a platform to do it, the convention and gamer have a mutual relationship. Management and delegation should operate under the same principles.
So take the lead and be amazed at how far you will go with great people by your side!
I would like to call out everyone involved in the trailer’s shoot and acknowledge them for their talents. Here’s also a bit on what they all have coming up as well. Do yourself a favor and don’t miss out on some exciting projects!
