Is it surprising to anyone that Steve Martin credits “incremental steps” to his comedic accomplishments?
Nothing spectacular, nothing special, just taking the next step right in front of you.
Working toward a dream, and doing what you feel you were put here to do.
And one day…
One day, you look up, and can’t imagine how far you have come.
Reminds me of this superb blog post by Steph Smith.
And reminds me of about 10-percent of this blog.
I often feel like I was born to read, write, travel, spend time with family, glorify my creator, and fellowship with other believers.
What were you born to do?
I was seeking comic originality, and fame fell on me as a by-product. The course was more plodding than heroic: I did not strive valiantly against doubters but took incremental steps studded with a few intuitive leaps. I was not naturally talented—I didn’t sing, dance, or act—though working around that minor detail made me inventive. I was not self-destructive, though I almost destroyed myself. In the end, I turned away from stand-up with a tired swivel of my head and never looked back, until now.
