I noticed for myself, I really started to grow as a performer when I dwindled my repertoire down to just a few pieces that I devoted intense study to. I've always admired performers who were successful, yet achieved their success mostly through intense study of just a few performance pieces (e.g., Armando Lucero, Uri Geller, Mal Cross). In a hypothetical world where you were to devote your time to continually performing and perfecting, say, 2 or 3 effects from your current repertoire and/or things you'd like to add to your repertoire, what would make the cut?

Interesting question Chris.

I do this but not with effects.

I have maybe 5 presentations (scripts and subtleties) that I use religiously and interchange the routines.

For example if I told the isabellas story, I move into another effect after, instead of the dob reveal. So I can make most routines appear flawless when I'm performing close up.

The routine itself is straight forward I normally find, its the casing that doesn't make me happy.

But if I was to list my favorites.

Revealing a starsign and date of birth.

Letting them reveal something of mine using their ability.

Revealing a deep secret and finishing on a story.

Obviously with talking and more hits between.

Touching sentiments also!
