Violinist Eric Rosenblith was an amazing musician and my musical hero.
What made him inspirational wasn’t his world-class technique. It wasn’t his ability to lovingly shape a musical phrase. It wasn’t his ability to weave stories about all the famous musicians he knew.
It was because Mr. Rosenblith passionately cared for his students at the New England Conservatory.
The day after Christmas, he would call and excitedly ask “Would you like a lesson today?” The day after New Years, the same thing. Even on his birthday, he would joyfully give lessons pass 10 pm!
Because he cared.
The incredible baker and founder of Flour, Joanne Chang, cares about her art too.
She cared so much that she left a high powered consulting career and her Harvard Mathematics and Economics degree to focus on baking delicious treats the right way. She cared enough to make sure that every ingredient and every step in the baking process is constantly tweaked and improved upon, until something magical happens.
Now, people eagerly wait in lines at multiple Flour locations around Boston.
We all care for different things.
When people describe you and the things you care about, what story do they tell? What story would you like them to tell?
If they are not the same thing, what can you do today to start changing that?
Thanks for caring!
