Taking a break from competition

by Kevin Hart on 12/06/17

Sorry to bother you, but what if there was something more important than competition and sports or politics... which, ok, are pretty much the same thing…? What about nature or music? I know... nature and music can be caught up in competition and sports or politics...but they're still different enough.


And when someone says that ensemble playing in music promotes teamwork, just like sports, they're not quite right. True, musicians work as a team. But the goal is not to defeat anyone else. The goal is to lift everyone else. Nature does the same. It's there for everyone and lifts us all.


That sounds better to me. So let's put aside competition. Let's create something beautiful together. Let's lift each other instead of trying to defeat the other team.
