Flying solo

In rock bands, you need a great soloist. But those soloists can also play back-up, too. That's part of being in a good band--it's not four guys playing separately from each other, they're actually feeding off each other. That's called jamming. Jams can be boring or they can be inspired. But you never know until you try.

In our business, we need to jam more often, to play off each other, because we might just create some magic. Why don't we do just that? A few reasons:
--We don't want to expose our ideas to criticism or judgment
--We don't want to bother others
--We want to prove we can do it on our own

No matter the reason, we are always worse off by not collaborating with our fellow band members or office mates. No jamming, no magic.
