I booked my second co-star role. Power was back in November as you may remember. And today I'm shooting Blue Bloods after a great class with Kim Miscia AND the amazeballs coaching of Jessica Blank and the strategizing of Jordan Ancel. I mean, seriously? Why isn't everyone coaching with Jess? Lucky for me she has availability.
I also want to say I made a DECISION for TV this year. In particular, I had 3 theater opportunities for January. It was hard but I had to turn them down. It was hard because theater is known to me and going out of town is what I've always done. This time I said no. Jordan said to me, "you say you want TV. What kind of message does it send to your agents if you tell them that's what you want but then take the theater gigs? When I turned down a gig in Indiana my agent said, "I can only put things in front of you. I won't tell you what to do unless I think you're gonna do something stupid. But I think you are absolutely 100% doing the right thing!" Everyone was right. If I'd taken the theater gig I'd be freezing my butt off in Indiana right now instead of writing this to you from the Blue Bloods costume shop where I'm having my fitting. This afternoon I shoot a scene with Dakin Matthews and Bridget Moynahan....um, yeah!
It's so important and Jordan has hammered this home. Success = DECISION + Action + Commitment
