Have Your Dreams Been Educated Out of You?

Andrew Hitz

"All kids dream big. They want to be super famous, super meaningful, super powerful superheroes...But as we mature, these grand fantasies are typically educated out of us."
-David Cutler, Author of The Savvy Musician

The above quote is from a really great blog post by my good friend David Cutler over at savvymusician.com. It is must read.

He points out that people's dreams either grow or shrink over time and that it's usually the latter. It is his contention that this is not good.

As David points out in his excellent post, you should never let the system educate your dreams out of you. Every single person in this business who you look up to started by dreaming big and never changed that fact.
