Monster.com has this box on your profile page that wants you to set it up with your career goals to complete your profile. I can never fill sections like these out. I can't come up with a single career goal and this always makes me feel terrible. I should be able to come up with career goals shouldn't I?

I was surfing on monster today and it occured to me why I can't fill out those simple little things. I have career goals, but not in the jobs that I hold. Those jobs I hold out of necessity, they are not what I want to do, they are not what I am trying to do. In my film career I do have goals.

I want to get a film into Sundance within a couple of years (next year if I can), I'd also like to be invited to Cannes (though that is the one festival that scares the bejezus out of me). I want to get into the Tribecca Film Festival. I want to direct a studio film within three to five years. I want to direct for Warner Brothers. I want to be slected for a film out of dozens of candidates as the only choice for a movie. Before I hit thirty I want to be a member of the DGA.

When all is said and done, I want to be a director, not an administrative assistant. So I am incredibly happy I have End, I will keep working on becoming a director and I will plug away at whatever jobs I can get until then and wait to see what God has in store for me.
