Listen and Unlearn

If you had the chance to listen to one of the world's best violinists for free, would you? Probably not if he or she were playing in a subway station. A few years ago Joshua Bell, one of the world's top violinists, played for over three hours in a subway station in Washington, D.C. He collectedly only $32.17.

Why? Because most people weren't listening with their ears, they were listening to their minds and their minds told them that anyone playing in a subway station couldn't possibly be that good. I encourage you to watch the 3-minute video below. Afterwards, you might want to ask yourself, what else aren't you hearing?
