From time to time we like to take a few minutes to focus on small things that can be important to your act. Part of having a great act is having great material to work with.
Everyday of your life, you go somewhere and overhear something that is crazy funny. Maybe it is not in “joke” form when you hear it. Maybe it is something that will have to be developed. However, if you forget it before developing it, it is useless to you.
This is why it is CRITICAL that you have a small $.79 spiral notepad in your pocket at all times. The minute you hear something funny, pull out your pad and jot down the basics of what was funny.
You don’t have to take the time to develop it in its final form. Just take enough of a note to be able to jog your brain later in the day or whenever you sit down to work on your material.
You can use the same notebook to key in on appointments, or keep a running list of people you can contact to get bookings.
Even if you have a very good memory, there is too much stuff going on in your life to be able to remember it all. A good note taker is better than a good memory.
That’s all for now folks,
