Learn from the Tap Dancer

It was a cold Monday morning, typical of New York. I was shuffling to work. Everything seemed just the usual until I stepped out of the subway on 42nd street. I couldn't but help notice a tap dancer gearing up for his performance - I paused to see what was to come.

His day starts with pure uncertainty; Not knowing how much he’s going to make that day, the kind of people he’ll meet. Will he see school kids rushing through their day stopping by to stare at him in awe for how he makes music from his shoes?  take a selfie with a passer-by? get a compassionate hug from a fellow street artist? or will he meet a happy old couple enjoy his performance?

All this, while there is still a lot running in the back of his mind - bills to pay, family to feed, shelter, friends, health and the list goes on.

Yet, he has his routine filled with unbelievable energy, determination, and perseverance that where ever he may be - the subway station, random street corners or even the crazy times square! he’ll make you turn your head, and play a part in your “our very own interesting everyday” routine!

He’s selling something in the wild market - a space filled with strangers, indifferent and filled with minds on auto-pilot - not that any of them expect to see him. And in that strange scene, he’s confident he’ll sell himself - his dance - his energy - his ability to entertain you! That’s the art of selling!

Drawing a parallel: Content is everywhere, in everything we do - emails, documents, pictures, videos, blogs and more. Just that there’s a whole lot of them.
