The Choice

There are many, but THE CHOICE that will predict the experience that is heard, felt, and seen and the story that unfolds with you and your music will you be whether you choose to be an artist or whether you choose karaoke.

Here, this is free. Did you know that karaoke is two Japanese words put together: empty (kara) and oke (orchestra)?

You can be an empty orchestra or a full symphony.

Your choice.

And this choice makes ALL the DIFFERENCE in your world and the world of others.

A friend pairs well…

…with a phone call. It’s nice – and comforting – to be heard isn’t it?

…with a marriage. What/who else would you want to invest and spend your days with?

…with any exchange of currency (financial, social, relational, etc). Win-win is a no-no today for many and for some, taboo. Bob Goff rattled my cage with this thought – “God doesn’t pass us notes, He passes us people.” Let us not forget that it’s in our daily exchanges where most people are passed to us.

Alas, to be a friend and to let those friends that you have know you consider them into this sacred grouping is one of the finest human compliments.

To clarify, this isn’t a scratch-my-back-I’ll-scratch-yours friendship pairing we’re arguing for. What charms and delights here is the I’ve-got-your-back type of friendship.

I hope you will share this with someone that has paired well with your days.

The Secrets

We don’t like secrets. We don’t like them because they may prove that what we currently believe is false. And no one enjoys being wrong.

However, it’s a spirit of wonder that unlocks such secrets to take you, your business, and your life to the next level of efficiency, effectiveness, imagination, and fulfillment.

In all reality, there are no secrets. There’s only new and unconnected data, information, mediums, ways, and music to be discovered, written, and created in your given industry or line of work.

When you learn to listen and watch for secrets, you learn to like them. It becomes a joy to connect the unconnected and, in doing so, you will have found a secret.

All you need to wonder is this: “Is this as good as it (we) (I) can get?”

And always, the answer somehow and someway is no.

“What started as a whisper, slowly turned into a scream.” Ben Harper

Can’t Quite Put Our Thumbs On It

There are no jobs left.

The only thing that is left standing, or currently asking to be given legs, is the work of art that connects, leads, and changes us.

If one can’t quite put their thumb on that thing you are supposed to do in your field, industry, or line of work – that is good news. In that sense you’re not jobless. And therein lies the role of today’s working artist: take a client, customer, or the recipient of one’s art on a journey and move their thumbs on ‘it’…on enlightenment…on the answer…and even sometimes on the question(s) they didn’t know they should be asking.

It’s time for the proverbial car salesman to forget they don’t sell cars. This goes for all of us.

Or as Paul Valéry once said, “To see is to forget the name of the thing one sees.”
