The Success Path Exercise

Alrighty, so we’re back and at this stage two of curriculum design, development, planning and all that lovely stuff, getting the waterfall to work for you. We’re at the stage where we’re going to start doing a couple of exercises that are super useful prior to actually doing your curriculum, okay? They’ll help focus your mind basically. And I can’t resist this beautiful shot of this guy walking through what looks a lot like Yosemite. I could be wrong, but I think it’s probably Yosemite. So let’s luxuriate in this place for a moment. By the way, just as an aside, before I teach, before I do anything connected to online, I do actually spend 10 minutes 15 minutes walking around the block through the trees, listen to the birdsong commune with nature and make a connection with the world. Yeah, helps hugely. One of the traps of online work and and so forth, is that you can get very immersed and trapped in the screen. And if you start the day, I sound like I’m lecturing here that I am lecturing actually, but I don’t want the heck to you but I wouldn’t encourage you to take the time to commune with nature and get out there breathe before you actually start to communicate, because you quite literally Okay, I will get will help you quite literally will absorb some of the energy of the universe, some of the energy of the nature around you, which will start to project in your teaching on the camera. Okay, so very simple kind of thing to do really. Alright, two exercises here, the success path and the sales page exercise and I’ll try to do these in some brief for you. Success path exercise. Yeah, right. That’s way too much detail. Let’s do this. This is super simple. Okay, literally, I’m going to show you on a piece of paper. Very literally what you do is you draw a line like this. Okay, I hope it’s coming up on the camera, but piece of paper and I’m not sure if it’s going to flip left to right or right to left. Doesn’t matter. Basically you draw a line on a piece of paper left to right. Okay, lines literally line across a piece of paper, please do this on pen and paper, don’t do it in digitally, okay, you’ve got a much better result if you do pen and paper believing. And what you do is you mark a line at the start and a line at the end draw a little stick figure on a drawing is absolutely hopeless. But there you go, little stick figure. And this is basically this person is question mark, find all that out. Question mark like that. Yeah. Where is this person? Yeah. What is this person? What’s the pain point? What’s the problem? What does this person want to learn? What are they actual course for? Okay, this person is someone who’s super happy. Okay. Your course has delivered them the results. they now know what to do. They know more about the topic area, they have an understanding they have a solution. Your course basically in some way or another has actually delivered the result that that person came into your course for. Yeah, and this is called a success path. And very, very simply just mark out I don’t know, 10 1215 steps along this path like this, which will basically take them along the journey in your course to get them the result they’re after. Yeah. So the first thing to know about documentary film interviewing is that is what actually is a documentary film interview. Yeah. How do we don’t? Yeah, let’s let’s define terms. What are we talking about? Okay, that’s step one. The next step would be where documentary films are interviews used? How are they used, you know, to start to inspire people on other examples of where documentary film interviews are done brilliantly and shine. That’s step two. Step three, defining the most important elements of documentary film interview, why they matter, and how you can start to develop your own expertise. Step three, step four. How and then we might back step and start getting into the real practical stuff, how to design how to how to plan a documentary for Interview first steps, bang. That’s step four. Step five, how to deepen with additional research your plan for documentary film entry, a step by step, step five, and so on. Basically, I’m going to take them through and yeah, it’ll have lighting and camera angles, and all sorts of other great, great stuff. But basically, I’m going to have my sequence of stuff down to here where bang at the end of the course, this person knows what is a great documentary film interview. How do you set it up? How do you plan it? How do you get the energy with the person? How do you sit him down in front of the camera? What kind of camera angles do you have? What kind of questions you’re going to ask how do you ask a follow up question? How do you start to approach the editing of that documentary film interview? And how would you use that documentary film interview inside your films in order to get amazing results bank done? Okay. I did that off the top of my head as I happen to know about that topic area. Yeah. But I mean, literally, that would take me 10 minutes, okay, to sketch out a success path. This needs to be done on a horizontal line. Not vertically, because the mind will think differently when you’re going on on a horizontal line. If you come from a culture or country where it’s right to left, then by all means please don’t do it right to left along the page yet, but the important thing is you’re starting to you’re starting to get a feeling for the sequencing of ideas inside your course. That’s actually going to get people a result. Success. Okay. Do that exercise first and then come on to the next part of this lecture. By 4321, yep. Okay, you’ve done it. You’re probably that probably took you I don’t know, 1520 minutes at least to do that. If you haven’t done the success path exercise, please circle back and watch back what you just missed. And please do the exercise before you move on. You’ll find things much easier if you do this particular part of the teaching. In in sequence, okay.
