Anonymous said: I've been having a lot of difficulty getting down to doing evil lately, Evil Supply Co, and I think I need help. I have all these delightful schemes and plots, but when it comes to the execution there-of, I find myself faltering.
The first thing we ask each and every professional villain who comes to us is, simply, “How do you personally define success?”
For some people, it is to take over a city. Others want the world, and yet still others want to rule all existence. Some simply want a more comfortable lifestyle, or freedom from the fear of obliteration at the hands of death.
Each stratagem laid out, with our help or by your own hand (claw, tentacle, or other appendage), must start from this basic premise: how is success defined, by you, right now?
Remove everything else from your vision. Carve away any unnecessary element. Now tackle the goal one paper thin layer at a time.
It is easy to grow discouraged because we too often focus on the here and now — a single failed plan or one batch of killer robots that explode, blowing up the workshop.
But you are not made of a single plan or a single batch of robots. You are made up of a lifetime’s progress to date, and you will continue on.
So take a step back, decide what goals you’re looking to accomplish, and begin again, more experienced and better equipped.
But what steps have I actually taken today towards achieving my own underwater volcano lair?
Deciding one and for all you wanted your volcano lair underwater instead of on an island. We are proud of your progress!
