Second thoughts

Hmmm, I'm still thinking about that quote. When I posted it, I was thinking about it in terms of hesitating vs. making mistakes (and learning from them). I have long struggled, in improv and life in general, with hesitating out of fear of making a mistake, and the quotation seemed to speak to that.

The problem is, I ignored the other half of the quote, which was about being inferior vs. superior. I hope none of us are striving to be superior to our teammates. That isn't why we do this. I hope what we are striving to do is raise our teammates up so that we all feel good about what we do.

And I suppose the same holds true for life in general.

Another quote untentionally about improv:

While one person hesitates because he feels inferior, the other is busy making mistakes and becoming superior.

Words to improvise by.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You've always admired those people who call a situation as they see it in the moment, and today, you're one of them. Helping others is how you're joyfully fulfilled.

What an awesome first show horoscope.
