Or… Doing a remote segment with a live audience…
How often do you get to do something for the first time? Lately I seem to be finding these opportunities a lot.
Talk about starting before you’re ready (Seth Godin’s advice). Before I knew what I was getting in to, I agreed to do a bit for the Don’t Panic Radio Show on the upcoming World Championship of ComedySportz. The bit will be a segment I’m recording tomorrow night in front of an audience at Indy ComedySportz after one of their shows. I’m guessing that some day this will seem like easy peasy lemon squeazy. But right now I’m certain that I will look like a fool. And that I will screw something up. And I’m certain that between my co-host and I we will be able to cut together a pretty good show.
Is the first time the hardest? Or just the scariest? I’d guess the 3rd time is probably the hardest. Just a hunch.
What have you done lately for the first time?
