My New Year’s Resolution – what’s yours?

Let me be one of the first to wish you all a Happy New Year!

I love New Year’s.  It’s my favorite holiday, and probably the favorite holiday of most entrepreneurs out there. It represents a new beginning, a chance to take stock of where you are, and make plans (aka resolutions) about where you want to go.

I’m a big resolution setter.  I set a whole ton of ’em for the shows and projects that I’m working on, as well as the shows and projects I want to be working on for the next year.  I throw some personal ones in there as well (drink less coke, eat less Wendy’s – good luck to me!), because I also know that a more balanced personal life leads to a more successful professional life.

This year, I’m also setting another resolution.  And here it is.

I resolve to produce something I wouldn’t normally produce.  I’m going to take a risk on something that might not be my cup of tea, because that’s the only way I’ll learn, the only way I’ll diversify, and the only way I’ll broaden my own artistic horizons.

I don’t know what it’ll be.  I don’t know if it’ll even make it to a stage this year.  But I will do something . . . different.  I’m going to produce outside of my comfort zone.

What’s your resolution?
