Day 241 – Park Jean Drapeau

August 31, 2012


“The Rule of Improvisation That Will Change Your Life and Reduce Belly Fat. The first rule of improvisation is AGREE. Always agree and SAY YES. […] Now obviously in real life you’re not always going to agree with everything everyone says. But the Rule of Agreement reminds you to “respect what your partner has created” and to at least start from an open-minded place. Start with YES and see where that takes you. As an improviser, I always find it jarring when I meet someone in real life whose first answer is no. […] What kind of way is that to live? […] The second rule of improvisation is not only to say yes, but YES, AND. […] To me YES, And means don’t be afraid to contribute. It’s your responsibility to contribute. Always make sure you’re adding something to the discussion. […] The next rule is MAKE STATEMENTS. […] THERE ARE NO MISTAKES, only opportunities.” (Tina Fey, Bossypants, 2011)
