It’s hard to make a film when you feel tired, fatigued, mental fog, overweight, bloated, depressed, and unhealthy.
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Personality Types
Is filmmaking for you? Sure it is. Even if you’re not cut out to be a director or camera operator that’s just fine – the creative types absolutely need bookkeeper’s and producer’s to help us make it happen!! Take this laymen’s Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) test and read the description of your type see what position might be best for you.
Study up on the MBTI types. If a filmmaker understands these types then they are better equipped to communicate their needs with crew members of various personality types.
The Bulletproof Body
Working 12+ hour days on set is exhausting. So is the mental challenge of screenwriting and pre-production. You need to get your mind and body in tip-top shape. And if you’re a microbudget/indie filmmaker with a job and family then you’re definitely going to need to pay attention here.
The Bulletproof Executive is a website ran by Dave Asprey and it will help you get there. It will take a while to digest everything on the site, possibly months. It’s best to go to the site once a day or so and read something – anything. Also, listen to the podcasts! This is a FREE resource. This guy could’ve locked it in a book you’d have to pay for but he’s dumped it onto his site for FREE. Do not go the rest of your life without reading everything on this site.
