Inspired organizations work from the inside out.
From the “Why” to the “How” to the “What.”
Inspired music organizations work from the inside out. What’s the purpose, the “Why” of what you are doing? If there is a group of people who should be inspired by the past, it is us, whose musical heritage is built into centuries of our genetic codes. We have stories of inspiration and a HUGE “WHY” of what we are doing. When you become convinced of how important the “Why” is, you will be surrounded by inspired people. Your music will take on new dimensions and peoples’ hearts will be moved.
“Life, he realized, was much like a song. In the beginning there is mystery, in the end there is confirmation, but it’s in the middle where all the emotion resides to make the whole thing worthwhile.” Nicholas Sparks, The Last Song
If you as the leader of your music program have a strong sense of “Why,” share your feelings, you will find that people will suddenly find the time and effort to join you in your pursuit, which may share as their pursuit. Even if they don’t have a full understanding of the “What” and “How,” they will move with you.
“The perfect situation is to be inspired by inspiring others to transcend themselves.” Moi
We all have a strong desire to have a purpose to do something larger than ourselves. You can be the catalyst to draw people into that larger than life purpose.
“Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.” Ludwig Von Beethoven
