“The Primary Instinct” Kickstarted

Every endeavor is filled with risk. It doesn’t matter if you are in fourth grade and you want to ask a girl to be your partner on Square Dance Day, you want to try a new type of cat food that claims to reduce hairballs, or you are starting a new job – there is always a risk.

All of these areas can be daunting, especially starting a new job. Many of us don’t like change because we prefer to stick with doing things that we are comfortable with. Often changing your routine can cause levels of stress, which for some individuals may be more extreme than usual. To cope with this some may choose to either use breathing techniques to calm their nerves or they might use a product similar to Purekana CBD another supplement that suits them. Different people will undoubtedly rely on different products to help themselves feel calm at stressful moments in their life. Unfortunately, life may also be filled with many of these complex moments, so it can be useful for someone who struggles to find out what stress managing technique works for them. It may not be the easiest thing in the world to start a new job and meet your co-workers. In some cases, we may even need to relocate to a new location for a job. It comes with its own set of responsibilities. Finding a new house or apartment to rent, signing a lease agreement with the landlord, learning the rules and regulations, adjusting to the new place, and so on, can take a lot of time and energy. And, when you join the new organization, you are expected to get along with the other employees. In fact, it is likely to be one of the most uncomfortable things you may ever be required to do during your life. It can be hard to fit in, and if the company hasn’t yet incorporated employee engagement software from somewhere like Qualtrics (https://www.qualtrics.com/employee-experience/employee-engagement/), you may find it hard to keep your productivity levels at a certain level. When you are starting a new job though, you need to make an impression, not only when it involves your work productivity, but when it comes to meeting your co-workers too.

When you think about it, the whole process of finding a job is just the same. If you haven’t changed jobs in a while, you may have forgotten what it’s like to spend hours looking for the perfect job for you, as well as spending time updating your resume – luckily professionals like these virginia resume writers can give you a helping hand should you need it in this day and age. But it is scary. It doesn’t matter how old you are. You will always have those types of experiences.

In fact, David Chen and I are embarking on one of those heart-pounding, mind-numbing trips now: shooting a live show at the Moore Theater in Seattle in hopes of creating a feature length film on storytelling.

A journey like that can wake you up at 4 AM with many questions, like: are you out of your mind? Why put yourself through this? The way back to sleep is the recognition that we are not alone. Not by a long shot.

We are joined by the great technical people at Super Frog Saves Tokyo in Seattle, Michael Gaston and company, Joel Clare and some of his Chicago based team are running to our aid. We have been assisted by Jeff Hanson and KUOW, The Tobolowsky Files’ home away from home.

And about 1000 of you. Contributing time, money, and good wishes through Kickstarter.

That is enough to give me pleasant dreams.

David and I have played the Moore before. It is a wonderful venue. A beautiful theater. Historical.

I am doing two good stories. Conference Hour, one of my all-time favorites from The Dangerous Animals Club, and The Primary Instinct, a new-ish story that means a lot to me.

Meaning is the key. It is what I always come back to. When something means a lot there is more risk, but it is easier to bear. When I think about the stories, our supporters, and the distance David Chen and I have travelled together on this project, it becomes something bordering on an honor to make this happen.

Then work ceases to be work. It becomes a blessing.

If you are in Seattle the evening of May 3 come to the Moore. We will have a splendid time.
