Why Self Improvment?
I began Self Improvment when I realized that all the best lessons I've learned in life, the wisest advice I've heard (or given!) and the times I act as the most authentic version of me are all due to the principles of improv.
Improv is more than just being quick-witted on stage (though that feels awesome, too). It is a philosophy that has infinite applications and tie-ins, and it's fluid enough so you don't sound like a pompous asshat trying to impose your own rules for living on others. In fact, one of my teachers was fond of giving feedback that often sounded a little like this: "That was a moment. You either felt it or you didn't."
Self Improvment is never about a list of rules, do's and don'ts or even failures or successes. That may make it sound like we're all pounding some bongos in a hippie trance circle, but, despite the lack of checklist, it's not quite so soft.
Instead, Self Improvment is about having a framework that allows you to be fully present in the moment, react with honesty to your circumstances and create deeper connections with others. It's about being agile, about reading context and using what you have in the moment.
And usually it's pretty fun living like this, too.
So, let's talk about this thing called improv more. I get a little giddy about it, so I hope you'll enjoy what I've learned (and am still learning!) along with me.
Oh! And here's a little more about me:
