No secret that I am a big fan of the band RUSH and drummer Neil Peart.
In one of the videos of just him (A Work in Progress) he talks about techniques in drumming and music. At one point he adresses how others have noted that as a band they tend to over play.
He recounts others saying how music should be short and sweet and simple. He brings up how we’ve all heard it said using the acronym k.i.s.s. (Keep It Simple Stupid) but in Rush they believe that leads to l.o.v.e. (Leave Out Virtually Everything).
A song on average is about 3 min. long. For Rush there are songs they play that last twice, three times or more than that length.
What if when people speak & try to convey their main point they did it in 3 min. or less.
Sounds good huh?
However, we may not fully understand what they are saying and I think that may be why speeches go on & on so long, because the person speaking wants to drive home the point & make sure the listener FULLY understands.
Better yet, how about we consider this… showing rather than telling what we want to say.
Actions speak louder.
Sometimes God’s Children should be seen & not heard.
The whole reason I started doing vlogs was because I realized that somethings can not be conveyed or explained in words & in speech. You have to see it to really understand.
1 John 3:18
This verse spurred me on to write a whole series and was the inspiration for starting vlogs.
The “God Action” series starts tomorrow (April 27th) right here on my blog.
Hope you’ll check it out over the next few days.
