One thing to do after every show you see.

Hey writers,

I saw a show last week. And well, to put it nicely, it was @#$%.

Sorry, sorry. I don’t mean to be disparaging, but this one really was @#$%.

We’ve all seen shows like this, right?

I’m a guy who likes to find at least one positive experience about everything I do, including seeing @#$% shows. So when I got home, I sat down and wrote myself a little blog (for my eyes only) . . . 3 Reasons Why I Didn’t Like NAME OF SHOW.

What I ended up with was three great warning signs of where I could go wrong with one of my shows.

And where you could go wrong with one of yours.

So your mission this weekend is to see a show. Any show. And if it’s great, then, well, terrific! Write a blog entitled 3 Reasons Why I Liked NAME OF SHOW.

If it isn’t any good, then write the “Didn’t Like” version.

What you’ll realize is that while we all want to go see great pieces of theater, there’s more to learn from seeing the shows that aren’t so great.

Be like a scientist . . . study where other people’s experiments go wrong, so you can improve the probability of your own success.

Go get ’em!

P.P.S. The best compliment you can give me is forwarding this email on to a friend. Thanks in advance.
