Ignore the no

March 10th, 2016

Mike Vial:

Better to be the musician who gets a no today, than the one who never asks and is always wondering; and even better to be the musician to takes a no and creatively makes it a yes on their own terms.

This fits just about anyone. Never take no for an answer. I love his suggestion to try the same thing again the next year with evidence that your idea worked out the previous one.
