Work nights and weekends. Don’t settle for good. You can’t control outcome, only effort, so don’t look back and say to yourself “I could have worked more on that...” There really is no substitute to working and reworking a good idea. If the brief isn’t working, challenge it. Make friends with your producer, they are your backup. Admit to your project manager that you’re an idiot that needs constant schedule and deadline hand holding. Focus your mind on the ideas. Good luck and Godspeed!
