I have never been a New Years Resolution person - maybe I should resolve to work out more, especially with all the weight I gained during my COVID stint! I also tend to never plan beyond my immediate future. I always hated the "where do you see yourself in five years" question because I could not think that far ahead. Instead, I always tried to process immediate experiences and opportunities and let them advance me personally and professionally. Happenstance played a big role in almost all of my professional advances from music, music management, law and comedy.
Lately, however, I have been trying to make better decisions about accepting opportunities to ensure that they will advance me. I also physically listed my short term and long term goals for the first time in my life. I guess that's the closest I will get to a New Years resolution. Hope to see you at the shows this month in Detroit (this weekend), Chicago (next), St. Paul (2 weeks) and Indiana. #newyears #careerchange #formerlawyer #standupcomedy
