That's an excellent list!
I participate in a couple of festival type shows each year. As a newbie, I would take it all. Each year I edited a little more, but still tried to have something for everyone. Then last year I just took the work I am excited about, the direction I want to go. I was terrified I was screwing up, but actually had my best show ever and not by just a little bit.
I like your idea of writing down the 10 and 10. Will definitely add that to my experience.
