Make Brilliant Mistakes

ThomasEdisonJust because something doesn’t do what you planned it to do doesn’t mean it’s useless.” ― Thomas A. Edison

There is an understanding in all forms of Improvisation, whether it’s Jazz, Dance, or the kind of theatre and comedy I deal in, that there really is no such thing as a mistake.

There’s just an unexpected outcome.

And Jazz players, dancers and Improvisers will all tell you that the very best stuff comes from accepting those unexpected outcomes and building on them .

Do you allow yourself to make brilliant mistakes, and profit from them?  Or are you held back by fear of failure, paralysed by caution, unwilling to take the tiniest risk?

Learn to embrace and build on unexpected outcomes by taking the Improv Initiative.
