1. Be a creative problem solver.
Is there a new way to do it?
Can I borrow or adopt?
Can I give it a new twist?
Do I just need more of the same?
Is there a substitute?
Can the parts be rearranged?
What if I do just the opposite?
Can ideas be combined?
2. Share knowledge, techniques, "secrets".
Knowledge is a fluid, intangible asset tht can be transferred easily and its value increases when shared.
3. Be a team player.
A successful shoot depends on a team effort.
4. Know your resources.
"You don't have to know everything - you just have to know who knows." Mary Alice Williams
5. Have patience, patience, patience.
Remain confident and flexible.
Be ready to calmly state the reality of what's possible and what's not.
