We can learn a lot from music.
First of all, music admits that it gets better as it includes more elements.
- Melody welcomes harmony.
- Harmony is not prejudiced against rhythm.
- And rhythm doesn’t think it has a beat on everything.
What makes a great band?
- Find your heart.
Whatever makes you tingle, feel and think.
- Find your voice.
How do you want to say it–in a way that will edify human beings instead of depress them?
- Find your mates.
Locate those of like, precious integrity and purpose–and hang onto them.
- Find your sound.
Create something which only exists because you do.
- Find your audience.
See if your chimes ring anybody’s bells.
If we apply those principles to everything we do–politically, spiritually and emotionally–we will come up with much better solutions.
A band does not believe it’s the only thing on the scene, but it must know that it’s on the scene… because the only thing it brings is another reason to believe.
