The existential imperative is to make use of everything you are. To finding a home for all of your talents in the service of the world.
And so, as you evolve your skillset, it’s important to consider each new ability in the context of overall satisfaction. To constantly look for ways to express that ability to make a difference in all parts of your life.
When I came out of music hibernation in my early thirties after years of not playing songs in public, I had an epiphany. If I could just give my musical ability a more prominent place in my life, I could use it to create value in the world, bring joy to my friends and family, and even grow my business in new and exciting ways. It was a no brainer.
And so, the first thing I did was apply to teach local class in basic songwriting. With twenty years of experience and five full length albums under my belt, it seemed like the perfect fit. Turns out, that experience was not only fun, challenging and rewarding, but it also planted seeds for several future projects.
Including my new music website.
I’m reminded of an interview with an award winning actor, who said that talent is a little pet that needs to run, something with a life of its own.
Leave no asset unharvested. Find the right environments for your abilities to play, and take your talents on the ride they deserve.
How will you express your new ability to make a difference in all parts of your life?
