image019A little boy was taken to a Paderewski concert by his mother. (Paderewski is a famous pianist). The little boy slipped away from her mother’s side & made his way to the platform, sat down at the concert piano and began to play “Twinkle, Twinkle little Star.”

The crowd reacted with anger and said to take the boy away.

Paderewski, when he realized what was going on, went to the piano and began playing along with the boy, whispering to him, “Keep going, don’t quit son…. Keep playing….  Don’t stop…  Don’t quit…”


Then leaning over, Paderewski reached down with his left hand and began filling in the bass part. Together, the old master and the young novice transformed a frightening situation into a wonderfully creative experience. The audience was mesmerized.

Together the team created a magical aura.image020

So next time you set out to accomplish great feats, listen carefully to your team mate knowing that help is around and any feeble attempts shall turn into true masterpieces.
