I know this might sound rather self-helpey but sometimes we all need that little reminder to push ourselves to reach for the stars. We all have dreams of where we want to go or what we want to do. You should try and put some time to the side each day, just to dream. Why? Because if you can’t see it or dream it there is no way you can make it happen. Successful people think about their goals, their dreams about how they are going to achieve them all the time. Henry Ford said it best, “Whether you think that you can or you can’t, you’re usually right.” Basically if you think you can, you can. But if you think you can’t, then you can’t. We can quickly get caught up in working and the everyday ins and outs of life and forget what we are working towards. I’ve been guilty of this, on occasion. I get caught up working on each project, jumping straight from one to the next and I forget why I’m even doing what I do. Sure I love what I do but there is more to it for me besides just paying bills and getting food on the table… We can all easily lose sight of what our dream was and what it was that brought us down this path. You need to make sure that you do something which is going to move you toward where you want to be in your life, each day. Even if it’s just picturing yourself in the position you want to be. Something I’m trying to do in the morning while planning out my to-do list for the day is also taking a moment to just stop and think about where I’m going. Taking a breath, a moment to myself and really just thinking where do I see myself in 5 or even 10 years. Taking some sort of step like this is the only factor that will help you to achieve any results. So don’t spend another day of your life pushing your dreams to the side. Stop looking at reality and start looking at what you want. Stop focusing on just the problems or the work you have to do and focus on the vision of who and where you want to be.

I’ve been asked by a couple of people about how I was able to get the Invasion of the B-Movie Posters app created. Truthfully the app was a long time in the making, as many of you know who heard me pitch the idea over many of pints of fine ale. I was pretty knowledgeable on what I thought the iPhone was capable of so I knew the idea could happen and I was surprised someone else hadn’t already rolled out something along the same line. The trouble was I didn’t have any experience designing for the iPhone and I didn’t have any experience developing for it either. I figured I could handle the design side of the app rather easily but for the programming that was something I really didn’t think I wanted to invest my time into learning. So I knew I needed to find someone else to handle that side. The trouble was I didn’t have any money to invest in the idea, so finding someone to work for free up front is always difficult. Since I had been doing so many of these startup videos I had been meeting more and more programmers. Which is great but they were all usually busy with their own ideas. After asking around I remembered Mindy Hilt, who I had worked with a number of times. Her husband was a programmer. I pitched him the concept and he seemed pretty interested in it. I think the key to finding the right person is to make sure that they have the same passion for the project as you do. Otherwise it’s just going to get pushed aside for other things.
For B-Movie Posters we are splitting the profits 50/50 so I didn’t pay him anything for what he created. Since there was no money up front, we both had to make sure that other “paying” work came first. So we were both doing it on downtime, which resulted in the project maybe taking longer then ideal. In the end we were finally able to roll out a pretty solid application. There were a few things that came up that we had to kill because of time or just because it wouldn’t really work. I know I learned a lot from this first application and I’m looking forward to trying my hand at it again very soon.

“If we are smart, we choose friends based on the things that really matter- loyalty, an offbeat sense of humor, shared interests or a listening ear. My friends lift me up when I am down, laugh at the absurd and love me through it all. When one of us goes down a pant size, we all celebrate. If a man disappoints us, we rally together. In crucial moments, we can make major life decisions over a cup of coffee.”—- Melissa Hellstern (via teamnovotny)
