This is a “Next Level” tip.
A lot of what I coach comes from the acting world, not specifically from radio. Last week’s tip was a thought from Marlon Brando, and then I was reminded of this great piece of advice from an appearance the great Paul Newman made on an episode of “Inside the Actors’ Studio”:
“You can’t have a dramatic pause if you always pause. You can’t get someone’s attention by being loud if you’re always loud.”
When you “stretch” yourself and get different “reads” you start pre-selecting in real time. You have CHOICES, and avoid just “doing what you always do.”
Remember: Consistency is great, but Predictability is death.
