Labels are fables.

Attempt something beyond the perimeter of your own constituted identity. Seek total exhaustion from tasks that are outside of your traditional skill set.

Because even when you’re out of your depth, odds are, you’ll rise to the occasion and get the job done. And you might even learn something in the process. You’ll surprise yourself just how capable you really are. And the satisfaction of knowing that all systems are operating will be worthwhile.

I recently played a concert that was vastly different than my usual performance style. Different songs, different venue, different audience, different equipment and different partner.

And frankly, I was terrified. I even had an anxiety dream the night before the show. Because the gig was far outside of my comfort zone.

But once we got a few songs into the set, I knew we were creating something special. Something that wasn’t available to me with the previous definition of myself. In fact, the club owner told us that we brought the biggest crowd they’d had in years.

Proving, that when you find ways to feel engaged and tested and stretched beyond what you have done before, people will follow. No labels, no limits.
