Since my subpar performance last November at Del Rio in Leesburg, I have felt unmotivated to perform comedy. I perform and I get lukewarm reception or worse for my comedy. This bothers me, because I want to act on creative passions where my awareness of improvement comforts me in the face of adversity.

I listened to an audiobook recently about behaving in a way that focuses on stretching one and exactly one competency. I plan to try this when I perform: to stretch one competency and evaluate my performance for my ability to stretch that one competency and nothing else.

Share your thoughts.
