I was never one who liked making mistakes. So when I first did some improvisation my natural inclination was to stockpile good ideas and use them when it was my turn. I just had to be one step ahead of the game. But, fortunately, we did some exercises that went faster and faster until it wasn’t possible to stockpile and I had to, well, improvise. And right then I got it. The tremendous liberation, fear and confidence that comes with believing that you will do the right thing in the moment without knowing what it is beforehand. A confidence worth having.
