“You know, she opened the show.”

“He was on the national tour.”

“He’s done four Broadway shows.”

“You know who she sang back-up for, right?”

We want so badly to establish performance credibility.

Here’s the thing, though:

Most people didn’t read your bio. Most people didn’t go to your website. And most people don’t have your mother sitting behind them before the show starts, talking just loud enough.

Most people only have this show—this performance—this one opportunity to see what you’ve got to give.

Your past experience loses steam more and more everyday. Don’t be too reliant on your past experience to launch you forward.

Be better today than you were yesterday. (And prepare to be better tomorrow than you are today.)
