Answering the question of Myke Hurley on its Inquisite podcast: “What do you want to be known for?
This phrase stroke such a nerve in me that I had to stop the car on the side of the road and write it down immediately when I heard it. Nothing define me more than this. I often say: “This is not what I do, but how and with who I do it that matter the most”.
The road is (if not more) important than the destination.
Theses days with the instant release of a full seasons on Netflix, you cannot really appreciate the time the actors, writers, directors and producers put into a TV series. You simply consume it in two, three days like they were candies.
But if you restrain yourself and take the time to watch an episode every two, three days instead of the full season, than you may find something precious out of it. The storyline, the experience, the emotions of the characters remain in you for a while. And they can change the perception of your environment, relationships and the weight of what is important for you. They have even a stronger effect on you when they are from powerful series like Breaking Bad, Band of Brothers, 19–2 or The Killing.
I think the last six episodes of The Killing had a stronger effect on me than all the 38 episodes before it. Not only because I waited between each episodes, but probably because I waited for each of those seasons, year after year, to renew with my favorite characters. The wait made me think, reflect and appreciate even more what the storytellers had to tell me.
Just take the time to appreciate and press pause between each episode. You’ll see… it may change the way you look at them, and how you look at yourself.
