“What if you could start over whenever you wanted?”

What if you could start over whenever you wanted? What if you could begin again? What if you could begin again again? What would you do differently if you could do it differently? When do you have the chance to do THAT?


Well, you can each time you step on a stage, sit before a blank page, pick up your axe, sit at the bench, stand by the easel. You just have to decide that you are starting fresh. All it takes is your being aware that always your point of view can be at the “Point of New.”

What’s stopping you from starting anew?

  1. I appreciate David’s point of view on improv and life, because it’s something I’m exploring, too. It’s easy to get attached to the past, especially if it has an emotional charge for you, or if you’ve gotten into some negative self-talk habits like he suggests. I’ve found improv is an opportunity to let other things go and try to start fresh by focusing on what you’re doing now on stage. But, of course, there is also the risk of having a “bad show,” or “bad rehearsal” and get stuck on that, too. Improv is an interesting Zen training ground, and confronting those emotions and attachments is part of the learning process.

    Thanks for sharing, Cindy! I’m going to share the link on my blog, too! :)

  2. Cool, Karen. I’m glad it resonated with you too. This has been a year of bigtime change for me, and it looks like the coming months will bring even more, so I’m working to see the assumptions I’ve made about myself and to let them go. It’s pretty freaky right now. Mostly I am trying to be kind to myself, and to be present. I think that’s pretty similar to what he wrote in this post.
