The Show Doesn’t Wait

Whether you feel unready, anxious, or unprepared, the show moves forward. 

With or without you, the show moves on because it has other people to perform to, a limited number of tickets, and a limited number of seats. 

This isn’t the show leaving you behind. The show is forcing you to make the choice of whether or not you want to join. 

To take a step forward, or linger behind. 


Professionalism

What does it mean to do the work you signed yourself up to do, every day, without fail, no matter how you’re feeling? We call it commitment. 

Professionals are committed to what they do.

Being an adult does not grant you professional status; You are not professional because you are an adult. Rather, you become a professional once you are able to take the hits, the punches, the blows, the good days, and then the bad ones. 

Professionals serve an audience. They don’t just do it for themselves, but they do it for somebody else out there who needs them. 


Dear Friend 1

How passionate you must be to be who you are, while being yourself throughout it all. 

Many people would love to be in your shoes, in your peace, in your wit, and composure. 

How do you do it?

You’re a pleasure to be around, even though we haven’t known each other for that long. I hope you know that. 

You’re not a force to be reckoned with, especially not on a good day. 

It makes me wonder, do you even need good luck? 

I find that I’m always in awe when I’m with you. 

Thank you for sharing your best you on any given day.
