HiHat Productions Top 10 Rules That Attribute To Success

HiHat Productions is one of the top production companies in the entertainment industry. We work with the world’s best artists and companies to create stellar content. This content has been nominated and received a variety of awards from Grammy and Emmy to VMA awards to name a few. Here are our top 10 rules that attribute to our success.

1.Remember a delay is not a denial. When you hear “no”, see it as an opportunity to grow and come back stronger? A simple no can provide a bigger opportunity than a yes at the wrong time.

2.Focus on the things you can control not what you can’t. Don’t waste your energy on things you can’t influence. We find it more beneficial to asked ourselves, “What does this situation require of me?” and focusing our energy there.

3.Keep it positive! Focus on the positive regardless of your circumstance. Surround yourself with positive people and do positive things, like serving others.

4.Be comfortable being uncomfortable. It’s our experience that when we are challenged and uncomfortable we grow the most. We become more creative, work harder, and become more focused.

5.Don’t Assume. Find the courage to ask questions and express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as possible to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama.

6.Let go of the past. The past is a great teacher, but a terrible master. Repeat your successful behavior from the past, and don’t repeat your mistakes.

7.Know your “WHY”. Successful people understand the fundamental reason why they exist, and they stay true to that reason.

8.Know what makes you unique.  What distinguishes you from everyone else? Your success lies here. Your “WHY” and “WHAT” help you build confidence and stay focused.

9.Don’t Take Things Personal.  Many people suffer from hurts, bad habits, and hang ups from their past that have nothing to do with you. When you are immune to the negative opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

10.Always give 100%. Whatever your circumstance, consistently do your best. This helps build trust with clients (which is the most important asset in this business), avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.

“Successful people understand the fundamental reason why they exist, and they stay true to that reason.”
