Trick The Trickster – Hidden Secret To Success!

Today on my Birthday I thought I’d write on some Wednesday Wisdom that really makes a difference and could be
“Trick The Trickster and Ye Shall Find The Hidden Secret To Success!”

What does this mean… trick the trickster.  I first heard this from Robert Bly in a men’s conference where they were talking about the symbolism of the Russian tale “The Firebird.”  Great story about traveling to the end of the planet and the bottom of the ocean to achieve your dream, which in this case was winning the princess Vasalisa.

Well in the music business we find all kinds of tricksters, it’s like a plague in the business.  Like the booking agents at smaller venues who ask you to pay them to come play at their establishment and while your spending hours rehearsing for the gig don’t forget to make those flyers and promote your ass off and bring us customers.  My trick to these tricksters is simply to trick them into thinking they are cool and watching them drown in their problems from pissed off clients.

But what about the numnutz who run these highly read review magazines who won’t even talk to you unless you have a major label behind you and $1 million in advertising budget.  I say oh… hey thanks for the review from your magazine that I just wrote for you but gave you credit.   Yeah, sometimes you gotta trick the trickster to get ahead.  Just as long as you aren’t hurting anyone and it’s for the greater good go for it!  How can you trick the trickster in your life.
