    MAIN SEGMENT – Hot4Teacher


    It is important to have a goal – you need to have a clearly defined direction and place to move towards otherwise there is no way to know what is a priority for you. Tied into the idea of priority is an understanding or a developing of a matrix to decide what is important.

    The 4 Quadrant Urgency and Importance Method from the bestseller 7 Habits of Highly Effective People 

    Placing items in these boxes can help you to determine the most important priorities for getting you where you need to be. 

    So let’s use us as an example: what is our goal?
    To become a production team that makes films and TV shows for the biggest studios in the world like Netflix, Amazon, Disney, Apple + 

    Watch the episode to see what the guys place in the quadrants and the discussion around them.


    You have to know the most important line items that you need to be doing in order to take care of business. You need to understand that those need to take precedence, but you allowing yourself the time to try new things and discover and have fun is also important, so keep those things in mind. BUT the moment that the main priorities start to not get taken care of, then the stuff that isn’t essential needs to go.
