The Wisdom In Other People's Mistakes

Andrew Hitz

Any time you are near a professional musician who is doing some version of what you'd like to do for a living, pick their brains.  I would strongly encourage you to ask them not just about their successes, but politely ask them about their missteps.  What assumptions did they make about themselves or the business that cost them opportunities, time, energy, or all three?

Learning from the mistakes of others is one trait that almost all successful people share - both in and out of the music business.
