Benjamin Zander

I was in a session with Benjamin Zander for about two hours yesterday. He is a world-renowned conductor. He has served the Boston Philharmonic since 1979.

He is also co-author of The Art of Possibility, a book about professional and personal transformation.

Somewhat difficult to put into words the experience of listening to this man. At one level, he was immensely motivational, creating a sense of hope and optimism about the journey of life. For example, he reminded me that all of life’s context is essentially invented. We choose to respond to life through three perspectives: resignation, anger and possibilities. The adult world is full of resignation and anger. Very few people live in the world of possibilities.

At another level, he caused me to think deeply about my personal life. In a way that I have not done in about twenty years.
