Few things motivate me more than a deadline. I probably would have made a good journalist. Without a deadline I procrastinate. My next one man show has been floating around my head for sometime, but I can’t seem to commit it to paper. So, I have started the process of getting it booked for early 2013. This gives me a deadline. This level of pressure may drive me mad, but it will force me to actually get it done before I go up on stage and just stammer for about an hour or so. That may have worked for Bob Newhart, but it didn’t work for Barack Obama at the first Presidential debate.
So, on with the preparation. It’s a painful process but at the end it’s worth it. Kind of like giving birth, although I wouldn’t know about that kind of pain. But at the end, I have what is very similar to a baby. Both will keep me up at night and make me very cranky.
