Your Tip from Tom Hanks

Did you see the movie Larry Crowne? It stars Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts. The story is about a man that gets laid off because he doesn’t have a college education so he enrolls at a local college and meets professor Julia Roberts. And that’s it folks. The end.

If you want a heavy dose of blah then go see it.

If you’re looking for a meaningful story with superb acting then stay home.

Tom Hanks wrote, produced and starred in this movie that left me wondering: Why would two big name talented actors take on such  nothing  roles? Then it hit me. Every time an actor tries to ‘stretch’ himself by producing, directing, starring and writing a movie the result is nearly always mediocre. Why? Because it’s all about them and their ego.

When you want to take your performance to the next level make sure you practice new skills before going public with them. Know your limits and ask professionals to do what you can’t.

Hopefully Tom will learn his lesson and stick to what he does best.

Hopefully your company/clients will reward you for extraordinary performance.
