SUN FEB 3, 2019 // JCM W/ PAIGE GULLIVAN PART II

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA / BALTIMORE, MARYLAND

I’ve been friends with Paige for a long time. He’s a charismatic person. We spoke on the phone in early January and decided informally after that conversation to start what Napoleon Hill calls a “Mastermind Group.”

Think about it like this: “The coordination of knowledge and effort between two or more people who work towards a definite purpose in a spirit of harmony…no two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind.”

I’d told Paige I’d been feeling depressed and isolated. Meanwhile, his voice was very positive and inspired about the possibilities of life. He’d been working on making experimental short films and stand up comedy. I found the conversation really helpful and relieving. We decided to try and have one every month.

These are the notes from our second meeting. I’ll document our success and failures here with links to the evidence where applicable. ☽ = completed. ✞ = deferred til next month.


Michael.
-Schedule next month’s meeting.
Scheduled meeting for Sunday March 3, 2019 on February 16th. ☽

-Send Paige documentation of our conversation.
Sent screen shot of to-do list on February 16th. ☽

-Come up with a deadline for “Oslo.” (electronic collage music record that’s been in process since 2017)
I have given it some thought. I’m setting a preliminary date pending some additional conversation with Eric of September 1st 2019. The rationale for this is that I like the idea of completing another record roughly a year after the previous one was released. ☽

-Finish “Elwyn” writing. (don’t edit while generating text. Save that for a later stage.)
I made some progress and then life got busy. I definitely did some hard free writing and got results. I’m going to defer the completion of this goal for next month and hope to share the results then. ✞

-Start marketing course you ordered online.
I ran out of time and energy. Given recent set backs in securing a reputable day job I think investing time on this in the month to come will be important. ✞

-Complete a chapter of the recording / engineering course you already started.
Ran out of time. You need to finish what you start. Do this next month! ✞

-Review a chapter of the guitar theory course you already started.
See response to previous item. ✞

-Film yourself telling jokes. 3x. Short and sweet.
1. Schedule for next month and do it! ✞
2. Schedule for next month and do it! ✞
3. Schedule for next month and do it! ✞

-Show Paige your chronologically ordered youtube playlist.
I texted him Days in the Life of Skullface on Monday March 4th. ☽

-Complete garden through line for 5 loops / old voice memo recordings on your website. Have graphic evidence to demonstrate to Paige.
