The Previews

Einstein once said that ‘your imagination is a preview of life’s coming attraction.’

The Book of Proverbs relays that ‘as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.’

Dreams happen twice.

Once between your ears and once at your fingertips.

Success Defined (Pinpointed)

 “The border between music and noise is always culturally defined—which implies that, even within a single society, this border does not always pass through the same place; in short, there is rarely a consensus … By all accounts there is no single and intercultural universal concept defining what music might be.”  Jean-Jacques Nattiez

Making music, for purposes of this blog, is a metaphor for success. It is great news that music can’t be defined. No one, wants someone outside of them defining what success looks like for them. But it can be pinpointed.

Something inside of us is stirred when communication, instrumentation, rhythmic togetherness, originality, improvisation, passionate energy, and a message of hope connects and combines simultaneously.

Success, Letting The (your) Music Play, is that stir that I speak of.

Mud Puddles and Oceans

Utilizing our imagination reduces the chances for the mundane to creep into our lives.

The minute creativity and newness leaves our lives, businesses, and families we allow the water to get stagnant.

No matter the area of our live’s we look into, if “that’s how we’ve always done it” is the chorus in our music – soon that music will stop.

“That’s how we’ve always done it” puts us knee-deep in inescapable mud.

“What if we….? Could it be…? Imagine what the world would be like if……..” – These questions drop us in the deep blue waters of Capri.

Mud puddles are lame. Crashing waves, on the other hand – I can get lost in those all day.

The question is not how can I utilize my imagination better,  but where does imagination gets its spark from? I’m not too sure, but I tend to feel the rays of her warmth every time I question, every time I challenge the status quo, and every time I stop and listen.

An eager ear given to a small seashell just may be able to unlock the secrets of the ocean your trying to decode.
