I had the opportunity to see Fleetwood Mac in concert on Friday. If you know me well, you know that I love music. And more than that, I love live music. I’ve never seen them before, so I didn't really know what to expect. They've been around a long time and they’ve lived a hard lifestyle. I saw Pearl Jam a few years ago and Eddie Vedder was so out of shape he actually had to sit down on an amp and take a break (but I still love him).
The thing I enjoy most about live music is seeing the band give you so much of themselves on stage and truly lay it all out there. And in return, the audience gives them back their energy, enthusiasm and appreciation. This creates an experience. There is a “we space” created between the performers and the audience, and is woven together by the music. In a really great show everything else ceases to exist because everyone is so present. That happened on Friday night.
Fleetwood Mac exceeded my expectations. Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham were so connected to the music and the audience that they got into the flow state at times that is both inspiring to watch and incredible to be a part of.
I live for these moments. You can have them at a concert, in a competition, in a conversation or any number of ways. I have them with my clients--those magical moments when you are so present that you create an experience for your client and they create one for you.
What I saw on Friday night was mastery and it reminded me to “go there”—to play full out and give the best of myself to my clients and in everything I do.
