One of favourite movies of all time is The Commitments. A gritty, endearing, and often hilarious tale about a rag-tag group of soul musicians striving for success in working-class Dublin.

Undoubtedly my favourite scenes throughout the whole film involve the band’s ambitious young manager role-playing various scenarios in which he is interviewed by the mass media on the trials and tribulations of running a successful music group.
I like scenes such as the one above for a couple of reasons. Not only are they kinda funny and provide a unique way to get into the protagonist’s thought process, but because they provide a great example of something I’ve often done to help myself along when faced with a particularly monumental task.
See it. Feel it. Do it.
