Eric Paschall is learning to use his strength without picking up fouls

first_imgCHICAGO — Villanova head coach Jay Wright avoided putting burly Eric Paschall in isolation situations because he knew there was a good chance he’d get called for a foul.Wright often said Paschall’s game translated better to the NBA, where there is more room to operate in a league with better shooters and less restrictive rules. Now, more than 20 games into his rookie season with the Warriors, Paschall is learning how to use so much room for activities, but the process hasn’t been without …last_img read more

More Scriptwriting Resources for Creative Pros

first_imgThese great scriptwriting resources will help you improve your storytelling abilities whether you’re a director, producer, editor or writer.In a previous post I wrote up some fundamental screenwriting and story telling tips as well as some great videos from seriously talented storytelling professionals. Whether you have aspirations to become a scriptwriter or simply want to be a better storyteller (as a video producer or video editor) a great way to become better at the craft is to learn from successful professionals.  In this post I’ve put together great resources for anyone who wants to dive deeper into the world of screenwriting.Scriptwriting TalksBAFTA have an outstanding collection of lectures from successful screenwriters on screenwriting. Each year they present a series from screenwriters which are all well worth listening to. Talks include writers like John Logan (The Aviator), Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich) and William Nicholson (Gladiator) to name just a very few. Check out the series from 2010, 2011 and 2012.This talk from Scott Frank, writer of Out of Sight, Get Shorty, Minority Report, Marley & Me, is both entertaining and enlightening as he shares his insights from 28 years of writing for the screen.If you’ve ever wondered what it might look like to lean over the shoulder of a professional screenwriter then this great screencast from writer John August is a perfect example of just that (please excuse a few expletives along the way). So much of the writing is in the re-writing and this is a great lesson in improving your script.You can learn a lot about the constructs of screenwriting by reading and studying existing scripts.  You can get your hands on some scripts from successful films so you can see how it translated from script to screen and what might have changed in the process.  Screenwriting uber site Go Into The Story has a great post collecting the best legally free scripts that you can download today including Lincoln, Hitchcock, Rust and Bone and Moonlight Kingdom. One script that you can’t get online is Argo, but you can get this great interview with it’s Oscar nominated writer Chris Terrio.Scriptwriting ToolsIf you’re thinking of putting pen to paper, or fingers to keys, then there are two great tools that are worth checking out fit for this purpose, I’m sure there are more, but these are the ones I know.Final Draft: The Industry StandardFinal Draft is the most popular screenwriting program and has been around the longest and hence is the industry standard. There is a free demo so you can try it on for size to see if you like it. There is also an ipad and iphone app – the later which is free as a ‘reader’ which is great if you’re more interested in being able to annotate a script rather than write one.Scrivener: A Holistic Writing ProgramA few people I know who do a lot of writing, love using Scrivener and having nothing but praise for it. It strikes me as a broader writing program that presents your work in many different ways, allowing you to just get down to writing rather than fiddling with settings to get it to look how you want. It too has a free trial, so there’s nothing to stop you from giving it a go.last_img read more

There Are Some You Cannot Save (A Note to the Leader)

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 2nd book: The Lost Art of Closing “In The Lost Art of Closing, Anthony proves that the final commitment can actually be one of the easiest parts of the sales process—if you’ve set it up properly with other commitments that have to happen long before the close. The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Now There are some people you are going to struggle to save. Sometimes you will fail.These people need to change. They are capable of producing much better results. They’re smart and they have great people skills. Many of them will tell you they want to change, need to change, and absolutely must change. They recognize the need to do better.They’ll tell you that they want to improve more than you want them to. They’ll sell you on how committed they are, that they’ll bear any burden, that they only need your help and patience.You will invest your time in helping them. You’ll invest your energy and your money in helping them. But there is nothing that you can do. There is nothing that you can do to help someone who won’t help themselves. If they aren’t willing to make the changes they need to to produce a better results, you can’t help them. Here’s how you’ll know:Broken Promises: They’ll promise to change, and they’ll promise to take the new actions that they need to take. And as quickly as that promise is made that promise is broken. They had every intention of keeping their promise, but they lack the real commitment to change, the self-discipline, and the intestinal fortitude.Excuses: Instead of change, you’ll hear excuses about why they weren’t able take the new actions they promised to take. They’ll plead with you for another chance, and they will promise to do better. They will mean every word, and you will be kind and forgive them. This is a pattern they have practiced for a good part of their life.Blame Shifting: It won’t be their fault that they can’t change. They’ll insist that you haven’t given them enough of your time, that they need more training, that you haven’t done enough. They’ll suggest that it is wrong for you to give up on them when they are trying. And as soon as you give them “more,” they will go right back to their normal behavior.Acceptance and Identity: As some point, your challenging employee will suggest that they simply can’t change. Instead, they’ll tell you “This is just who I am.” They’ll describe their poor behavior as their identity, absolving themselves of the responsibility to change. After all, if that is what you are, how can you be expected to change?You cannot want something for someone who doesn’t want it for himself. It’s not that they are incapable of changing; they just aren’t yet willing to change. Until they reach threshold and absolutely must change, they will repeat this pattern over and over again. If you hired them, you are obligated to do everything in your power to help them–until you’ve exhausted your options. Then you need to choose something from this list.hr /> This post was written as part of the IBM for Midsize Business program, which provides midsize businesses with the tools, expertise and solutions they need to become engines of a smarter planet.last_img read more
