Favorite Quotes from Dick Wolf 

“TV is not about ideas. It’s about execution. And writing and casting. That’s why most of TV drama’s biggest stars have been character actors, not romantic leads. Peter Falk. Telly Savalas. Angela Lansbury. They can inhabit a role for years, and that’s the TV challenge. I like to say a successful movie lasts 110 minutes. A successful TV series lasts 110 hours.” – Dick Wolf 

“Advertising is the art of the tiny. You have to tell a complete story and deliver a complete message in a very encapsulated form. It disciplines you to cut away extraneous information.” – Dick Wolf 

“Drama or comedy programming is still the surest way for advertisers to reach a mass audience. Once that changes, all bets are off.” – Dick Wolf 

“Everybody knows things are not the same. The people running the TV end of a major vertically integrated company know how much money a successful show can make.” – Dick Wolf

“I don’t think you can really make television based on what you think audiences want. You can only make stories that you like because you have to watch it so many times.” – Dick Wolf 

 

3 Strong Lessons from Dick Wolf 

Now that you know all about Dick Wolf’s net worth, and how he achieved success; let’s take a look at some of the lessons we can learn from him:

 

1. Find Something In Life That Push You

You can only “push yourself” for so long before your body, mind, and spirit toss their hands in the air and say, “F-this, I’m out.”

When you keeping pushing yourself to do something, it feels like something you have to do. But when you’re pulled by something, it feels like something you get to do. 

 

2. Solving Problems

It’s not the suffering of the problems that lead to happiness. It’s the solving of the suffering that leads to happiness. 

 

3. Go For Walks

There’s something about being outside in nature–without any specific intentions other than enjoying a nice walk and observing nature’s boundless beauty–that re-energizes me and gets the good vibes flowing. It’s awesome. You should try it.
