Time Management

In the business world time management is key, but in the entertainment world it can be life or death. When I say this I don’t mean this literally, however without strong time management your career will suffer greatly. Often without effective time management you will lose out on opportunities, as managers and agents buyers get turned off by deals the longer people take provide answers.  In the world of entertainment everything moves incredibly quickly. With that in mind, you should always aim to respond to any form of communication within 24 hours.  

No matter what business you are in, Google should be your best friend. Google apps offers some great products such as free calendars that sync to all of your devices. With a calendar you can plan out your day to effectively and efficiently take down projects, schedule meetings, and put time aside for other things you need to get done .

Make sure to always give ample time to prepare. As much as you may think that your lack of preparation doesn’t show it always does. People can see right through it. Even if your lack of preparation is not detrimental in the beginning,  eventually it will come back to haunt you. Being prepared includes always being on time. Your timeliness is someone’s first impression of you. Give yourself plenty of time to get to meetings, interviews or just anything for that matter. Being on time and holding yourself accountable is something that is good to follow throughout life. Just as you want people to respect your time you should do the same.

Effectively managing your time will not only make you more successful professionally, but will also ensure you are able to form meaningful connections and take advantage of every opportunity.
