I was thinking today that most of my adult skills were a result of being in a band. Sorta like the Army, being in a band helped me to be all that I can be. - I learned that people come and go and have other priorities that are nothing personal. - I learned not to take rejection personally, to pick myself back up and try again. - I learned that people are wierd, and that I am too. - I learned how to get along with those wierd people, and sometimes get something productive done. - I learned that some people are just not worth your trust no matter what you do. - I learned my limits for partying. - I learned to use a computer, and later, web development, graphics, and audio production because I was in a band. Now I'm learning video production. - I learned the value of balancing discipline with creativity. - I put the theories I learned from my business degree into practical application. Most of my practical education in marketing, accounting, management, operations, manufacturing, sales, etc. came from being in a band. Let's see some more!
