In my latest video-clips, I explain that it takes a couple of strong “No´s” to argue the chosen option of your decision, either in front of an opponent or if you lack some self-discipline, with yourself.
In any case of a decision, you said “Yes” to one option and now you prioritzed it. You did that to get along in life, right? I bet you said YES to reach a goal, or to change a wrong path or to solve a big problem.
When prioritizing your actions, you said NO to all other options. Sometimes, saying “No” is not an easy task in life. Watching many Hollywood block busters over decades helped me understanding this life, our actions, what to say (next time!), what to do, how others function and I figured out what I liked most and what made me smile in life.
Even Hollywood Producers say “Yes” to their best options, discussing: “will this topic work for the current market?” And many times they have to say “no” to the rest we won´t see on the big screen. Just a few scripts/topics are worth it. Every movie is a product, an investment with the aim to make money with it, after selling/showing.
In my latest video clips on Youtube, I recommend a couple of older movies which bravely handle the legal topic! “A Few Good Men (1992), “A Time To Kill (1996) and “The Lincoln Law (2011). Let me I add “Boston Legal” and the latest big hit “Suits” to this short list –
The 3 movies especially, explain clearly what great research means, what arguing in front of others means, what defending takes, which role the prosecutor plays and that we, as a decider, can learn from all 3 roles for our decision taking. The secret is their communication style. Facts only.
If you come near to those mindsets of all 3 professions, you get closer to what decision taking “takes and means”. But this blog-post is about something else!
Hey Hollywood, you have to say Yes to a new legal-topic movie!
There is a gap within the past years when producing super heros, again and again. Okay, heros are the Jackpot, we all get it, and: congratulations (!) As a BIG THANKS, let me give you my ideas, as a free gift:
— you may choose a topic with lawyers who have to handle “moving trouble” in Space, above earth! No murder, no – an incident in space which has to be handled at court, concerning more than 1 Nation on earth, make it bigger, get out of the USA and involve another country. 1.) Space law is the future!
— you may choose another Space Law topic starting with a professor at a University (Yale?) who teaches Space Law while an earth threatening incident happens in space, the TV-News come up with it, weapons are stored in space (how? by whom?) Somebody on earth figures it out, a few students then gather on social media to exchange ideas/info, combine it with the weak weapon´s law which is a current topic in the USA, involve a fictitious President. 2.) Space Law with (stored) weapons!
Both HOT topics, and if you choose one of it, you have to say “No” to the other idea. Or store it. Or combine it.
Be a decision maker, Be outstanding!
