A True Master's One Piece of Advice

#1

When intelligent fanatics from a wide variety of fields start giving the same advice, it’s best to start taking note.

Here’s the one piece of advice that jazz legend Wayne Shorter would give to a young musician. We’ve seen this repeated by multiple fanatics directly and indirectly. I do not think this is a coincidence and it is our mission.

“The advice I would give would be: try to read everything you can get your hands on… Go into the history of history. There’s a phrase from a movie that says, ‘If you don’t know where you’ve been, how do you know where to go?’”

Thank you Sean for interesting interview.

Go into the history of history, simple words to define reading and learning.

Thanks. Wayne would agree that getting into the history of history is simply utilizing mentors (direct or indirect) properly; using their hindsight as your foresight.
