The life of an actor can be hectic! However, many days are spent independently as people wait for callbacks or new audition opportunities. We find ourselves working out of the house or at a nearby coffee shop. But are we getting anything done? I have found that I often set out to accomplish my to-do list but end up on Facebook or checking email! I know I often wonder where my day has gone and worry that I am not getting stuff done! Does this sound familiar? To turn my time wasting around, I have set up a new way of working that I would love you all to try! Dedicate chunks of 90 minutes to tackle your to-do list. Set a timer and use this hour and a half to submit your resume or work on your monologue. When you complete your 90 minutes, reward yourself with a 30 minute break. Take time to go outside, cruise social media, or grab a snack. Than start your next 90 minute block! Between being timed and your upcoming 30 minute break I guarantee you will be more productive during the day.
