I have him sign my program. I shake his Mr. green. My name is lavar Burton. I'm an actor and I hope to work with you one day that was the summer of nineteen seventy two the the summer of nineteen seventy six. I was working with Ben vereen and roots. Pretty, it's pretty crazy. Do you set intention like that in your life? Yes. What is your goal setting process look like? A lot of. Involves a lot of tools that I've picked up over the years meditation, visit, visualization used to. I used to. Said intentions by writing them down, and then I would put them under my sleeve or tape them above my my head where I slept. So that so that the vision, the dream occupied, both my waking and sleeping activities, and I would write those daily intentions and and just a continuous, keeping in touch with what the goal, whatever that was was working, working, working inside and out. That's I think what it takes. One thing I really hope people see in your story is the degree of intention that you have in the choices that you make, and you need only look at your career to see how intentional you've been with the even the three things you're most known for are just so positive. And so optimistic very much empowering. And then I think the thing that really tells that story is what you had to do to become a director, and I think people think, oh, well, he was an act on the show. So of course, they let them direct walk people through what you had to do on your days off to get a shot to direct. There was a process involved, Rick Berman, the executive producer of Star Trek. The next generation was very happy to to help facilitate one of the actors on the show who wanted to cross that line and step over and become a director. And what we call we called Star Trek university was established when Jonathan Frakes made that decision to to to step over and try directing. It was established that you would get a complete and comprehensive education in all aspects of of storytelling on film you had to come in on your days off, you had to attend production meetings. You had to attend spotting sessions scoring sessions. You had to spend time with every editor in the rotation. It was as I say it was it was immersion in the the process and becoming fluent in other languages that that make up visual storytelling. And when you completed that process, you've got a shot, whether you got a second shot after that really depended on how you performed your first time out, but you did not get a shot until you demonstrated a commitment commensurate enough to have earned the opportunity. I love that and I love how much energy and effort you put in on your spare time -solutely and you've said about directing, and I love this that directing is much about leadership's as it is about storytelling. So what, what does great leadership look like? Well, I don't know, but I have learned over time that I like to lead by example, and that. That my leadership style is all about communication. I believe that the quality of our efforts is determined by the quality of our communication when I'm directing you will. I'm very, very vocal. An alpha personality..
