It's time. Time to shake off the torpor of the past couple of years.
Time to stop using your VP of Programming, PPM, your workload, formatics -- whatever -- as an excuse.
It's time to perform.
This is Show Business, baby, and the lights are up; the audience is expecting everything you've got.
The audience. Remember them? The tens of thousands, sometimes millions who need what you do, who want a reason to smile, to laugh, to connect emotionally right now, and they've turned to you for it.
This is what you do. This is why you're here.
Don't ever waste even one performance.
