In honor of going to see Bob Dylan in concert tomorrow, I give you this video of Bob Dylan rehearsing his one line from the charity single “We Are The World” for 8 minutes.
This is not your typical short and to the point Happy Friday post. But there’s something magical about the grin Bob Dylan gets around 5:07 in the video.
Even after decades in the music business and unmatched success, he’s still a perfectionist. He’s still humble. He still gets frustrated when he doesn’t sound good. And he still smiles when people like something he did.
Don’t think you’re too big to keep trying hard on something. Don’t think you’re so much of an expert that you can’t improve. And don’t forget to smile when people pay you a compliment.
(If you have an extra few minutes, you must read Rembert Browne’s hilarious second by second dissection of this video from Grantland. It will make your day.)
