I learned a lot about Liszt from this article! His involvement with music as an organizer, teacher, writer, composer and experimenter was unparalleled in his time.

John Haydon originally shared:
 
The Cult of Done Manifesto
1. There are three states of being. Not knowing, action and completion.
2. Accept that everything is a draft. It helps to get it done.
3. There is no editing stage.
4. Pretending you know what you're doing is almost the same as knowing what you are doing, so just accept that you know what you're doing even if you don't and do it.
5. Banish procrastination. If you wait more than a week to get an idea done, abandon it.
6. The point of being done is not to finish but to get other things done.
7. Once you're done you can throw it away.
8. Laugh at perfection. It's boring and keeps you from being done.
9. People without dirty hands are wrong. Doing something makes you right.
10. Failure counts as done. So do mistakes.
11. Destruction is a variant of done.
12. If you have an idea and publish it on the internet, that counts as a ghost of done.
13. Done is the engine of more.

Story
Tagline
Violist. Violinist. Musical omnivore.
Introduction
I'm tired of the old divisions in music. There's just great music and banal music. I am Concertmaster of Scrape - an original music improvising string orchestra featuring the music of jazz greats Jim Knapp and Eyvind Kang, and am Principal Viola with the Northwest Sinfonietta. I'm the violist with Trio Pardalote and am devoted to the idea of lots and lots of great, vibrant local music scenes. Seattle is my adopted home town.
