"I think life would be a lot better if it was like you're always making a movie."
-Jerry Seinfeld


I'm taking an improv class. One of the guidelines is messing up is GOLDEN. As in, we love it when you mess up and can you mess up some more so we can use it?

Life is not a movie, but if it was, I would want it to be an improvisational one. I don't want it to be the kind where I know all the scripts, where the lines are well rehearsed. I want it to be the kind that catches me off guard, that surprises me.

Want to know how I often stifle my creativity? Fear. Fear of messing up.


Need an adventure? Make life improv today. Start with a conversation with a new friend or stranger. See where it leads. No worries -- you can't get it wrong.
