The life of an actor can be quite unpredictable. You might have your whole day structured perfectly, and then a last-minute audition throws your planning out the window. Flexibility is crucial when it comes to your day job, your rehearsal schedule, and even your downtime with family and friends, but it can also be a major drawback to your acting business.
Many actors are allergic to structure. With their desire to stay open to unforeseen auditions and bookings, too many actors live week to week, with no plan in place. Instead, you spend your days simply reacting to what happens around you rather than proactively creating the career you desire. Without a structured plan, it’s too difficult to measure how far you’ve come, to know precisely where you stand, and to visualize what’s possible for your future.
