The Mystery of Music

Perhaps my favorite aspect of the music metaphor for success is its mysteriousness. The truth about our music, the success we pursue, is that it is a never ending and ever-changing pursuit that is always just on the horizon of our vision, reach, and hopes.

Einstein framed this very well by saying, “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.”

Growth stops, fresh turns stale, and color fades to black and white when we lose the emotion of mystery.

I’m After It > I Got It.
