If You Go Alone, You Can Start Today

For the past two years I’ve been under a television contract with the Animal Planet television network. I’ve shot two pilots, and just heard that the more recent of these will not be airing. It was a fun experience and an amazing learning opportunity, but one that involved a lot of waiting and relying on other people which was a struggle as I prefer to be more self-reliant. Also during this time I haven’t shot any videos of my own, as there were some pesky contractual obligations. Now that those are no longer relevant, I plan to shoot and air a bunch of videos.

Henry Thoreau wrote, “The man who goes alone can start today; but he who travels with another must wait till that other is ready.” From here on we’ll be going alone, so we can start today.

  • I know videos and books are not the same as first person, one-on-one learning, but it’s a great filler for times when you can’t get it. I look forward to seeing some new videos from JMB!

    Great quote, what is the source?

  • It’s paraphrasing Henry Thoreau.

  • Thanks Chris. I’m looking forward to getting them online.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
