Smart? Music? Tests? Einstein…

From a great article – “5 Reasons Why Music Classes Are The Best Test Prep for Your Kids”……

“Most likely, your firm’s MVPs are smart. But that’s not why they’re so successful. They see the world a little differently than you and I. Your company MVPs can problem-solve like crazy. They are incrediblly persistent. Business MVPs are emotionally resilient. These top performers work well with their colleagues. They have a broad skill set which helps them deal with whatever the workplace throws at them. They get stuff done.

Kind of like a good musician.

By the way, Einstein was the smartest guy in the room. Albert also played a darn fine violin, and used it every time he needed to think through his problems.

Which was often. As Einstein said, “Do not worry about your difficulties in mathematics. I can assure you mine are still greater.”
