This is your challenge…

Professionalism in art has this difficulty: To be professional is to be dependable, to be dependable is to be predictable, and predictability is esthetically boring — an anti-virtue in a field where we hope to be astonished and startled and at some deep level refreshed.”

That’s a quote from the author John Updike and while he was talking about writing, he could just as well have been talking to you about the challenge you face on your show every day.

What will you do within the confines of format and professionalism that will astonish me today?

That’s the goal and when you consistently reach it, you are going to be very, very successful.
