Don’t Miss Your Big Moment!

2 Jul

The legendary band The Who remains to be one of the main images of WOODSTOCK with songs of like “My Generation” andWon’t Get Fooled Again.” They’re timeless.

But don’t miss the lesson learned from this historical weekend.

The Who, Santana, Jefferson Airplane siezed on an opportunity that others missed. On that rainy day in Woodstock, the bands were asked on short notice to be in a small documentary called “Woodstock.” No big Directors, just a few unknowns with a camera & an idea. Saying yes or no didn’t seem like a very important decision at the time—but it turned out to be the Apex of the careers for those who said “Yes!”

On the other hand, a band called The Incredible String Band, refused to go on in the rain. It turned out to be a Big Mistake! They missed their “moment” even though they performed later. As the legend of Woodstock grew, The Who by their performance & by simply being available & saying “yes” to this small film made them one of the leaders/anthems of change for generations to come! The others…what we’re they thinking? I guess they weren’t!

Who-Tips-

1. You’re either there or you’re not!

2. When confronted with opportunity–Ask yourself– could this be my “Woodstock?”

3. Remember: “Life often disguises the extraordinary in a plain wrapper.”

4. Life’s made up of “Moments and Choices.” Don’t miss yours!
