I didn't think I was going to write a post about motivation, but as I tentatively pursue standup comedy, I realize that it's going to take much more than a 1 night a week commitment to get the stage time I'll need to get good.
I went to an open mic last night and failed to get on stage. I didn't even get on the list. As I was watching people perform I was fading in and out of engagement as I went over the jokes I was going to attempt in my own set, still thinking I would get on.
Thankfully, I'm not going to let this setback keep me from doing this. My goal was to get on stage to perform, but now my goal is to get on the list of performers. #realisticGoals!
