If you could travel back in time and give yourself one piece of advice, what would you say?
Copy the link below to share this page:
Get a Canon DSLR, Final Cut Pro, and make your own movie cuz no one is gonna make it for you (or buy your script).
Don't sacrifice your own happiness for others.
Pursue your dreams, that's happiness!
Don't watch The English Patient.
Fuck Hollywood, don't waste your time and genius in a cesspit of talentless frauds, liars and crims
Be authentic from the very start instead of attempting to please everyone and losing who I am.
Understand your own capabilities and limitations so that you can push them in the right way.
Don't let your concern about doing it wrong stop you. Don't wait until you think you're good enough. You won't get better until you do it a lot.
Nothing, because we are our life experiences.
I would tell myself to stick to my guns, and trust in my own intuition on projects, and make sure to follow through with them to the end. Or something along the lines of E.C. McMullen Jr's line above. lol. I agree completely. :)
Invest in Google, Microsoft, Apple, Twitter, Facebook etc.
Writing IS a real job.
Yo wake the F up....Jesus is still coming!
I'd give myself a heads up so I could stop the school shooting I was at... and probably prevent that whole 9/11 thing.
"Never travel back in time, it gets too confusing."
Get a Mac and should have accepted the Artistic Directorship of that British-Chinese Theatre company back in the late 80s!
Back? Forward? Time is now and both but really just space. Timing, is everything.
Producers want to make money, you want to make art. No one can make both at the same time.
i'd probably say, "dude, listen to more music, and learn the guitar--high school will end faster" no matter how low get, my guitar brings me back. had I known it's relaxing powers back then-- would have helped me through some times.
Think bigger, take more risks.
Remind myself: Do what you love and the money will follow. We are best at what we do most. Everything in moderation, including moderation (I've burned out from working too hard).
Love everything more.
keep it simple.
Don't let fear keep you from what you should be doing.
Go for arts, not engineering.
"Listen to me you stupid materialistic younger version of me... watch your damn CREDIT report, it controls you wherever you go!!!!! I had to clean up your f--kin' mess!!"
Forget about pursuing the call. The church doesn't want you and you're too lazy to start a cult.
reAd booKs i Like.. LoVe moRe remember everYones name keep EverY friend
Don't do marketing for a year save the 3000 in college fees to buy decent film equipment and start making your dreams a reality
Stop myself from listening to people who are negative and tell me that the things I want to do are impossible.
Hey Forrest, shut up and do it. HEY, right now.
Do not start making a film about time travel, there is so many never ending problems.
Take the red pill
Let people in my life know that I care about them, b/c sometimes you don't get a 2nd chance
spend more time with my mother
Live your life as you would like it remembered by those you love.
Stop being shy and talk to people. They're better and nicer than you know. Those boys aren't going to bite and they don't have cooties either. Don't live life in a cage. Spread your wings and fly.
not to do the things I shouldn't have done , wake up Nit Wit !!!!
Dont borrow any fken money no matter how much you need it ha ha ha
Everything will be alright, just hold on in there and everything will be fine. Then after the worrying dance like nobodies watching.
Plant your corn early
Start screenwriting like NOW!
I'd give myself a severe beating and the numbers for next Lotto. And before leaving to the future I'd say "hey kid, don't thank me yet, you'll understand"
stay a virgin
Don't lend money. Some advice I heard: When someone close to you wants to borrow money, say no, but give them a little of it as a present. Can save a friendship. Wish I'd heard that one before I did.
Live and let live
you are strong and you can acheive anything!!!!! keep believing!!!!
Don't panic about time, time is an illusion just live in the moment !
i'd either invest in something profitable (Apple, Google, etc) so that i'd have the money to do whatever i want. money is the main problem. you need good equipment, good crew, good cast. it's SOOOOO hard to do anything without it.
"Don't get into relationships. You're a terrible boyfriend."
I would tell myself not to give so much of my time away. I'm not the kind of person to whom things come easily. None of us live forever. I need all the time I can get (says the 67-year-old with more books in my head than I'll ever have time to finish...)
Don't sleep on life.
Listen to your mother she really does know best
I would tell myself to buy Yahoo stocks
go to Cal Arts-make it happen. take out a loan if you have to.
Stay single and stay a virgin for as long as possible
"Do it again without the suck."
Dont hesitate, plow through the BS as quickly as possible and dont doubt your inner voices. They are usually the real voices to listen to if you can shut out the bs to hear them.
Do something you love and not what other people want you to.
Don't eat much, hahaha.
Take your time. Everything works out in the end.
Never doubt yourself, you were right all along
Pursue your dreams and do not let anyone or anything stand in your way
Love that, Cynthia. Completely agree.
Always doubt the naysayers but never doubt yourself if you do you will become one of them
Ignore the naysayers -- they are stupid. Get a crew of visionaries, keep an eye out for the big drugs which kill amazing folks early, and make your move! (And watch out for Psychic Vampires!!)
Take care of your health. No health, no nothing!
What ever you do, don't limit yourself. You are going places you never thought you could possibly go.
