Basketball players wear high tops and gymnasts use lots of tape, but less demanding activities, like the ones you do around the office, require a different, but equally important, type of support.
If a cocaine sniffing hippo starts chasing you, run in a zig-zag because they can only run in a straight line. If an improviser chases you, stay where you are, say "yes, and..." and see what happens.
Do you have parasites at the office? People who take credit for other people's efforts, or who bring snacks and coffee to meetings, but never share any ideas? Improv can help.
Use your fear as a divining rod. Do what makes you uneasy. Do the thing that scares you most, and discover new things about yourself. Just do it safely.
Even if you plan for a bushfire, it is not going to go to plan. When the wind changes direction there has to be a new plan. And when plans fail, you must improvise.
If you're the kind of person who sometimes comes across as a bit prickly on the outside, but the people who know you think you're sweet, you might be a "social pineapple."
After 8 years of trying, last week I finally broke into prison. We went in hoping to help inmates find some joy and arm themselves with tools for survival on the outside. I don't know if we succeeded.
Never miss a word!
