Thu, 06/26/2014 - 12:26 -- rprice

How Music Works is David Byrne's remarkable and buoyant celebration of a subject he's spent a lifetime thinking about.

Acting as historian and anthropologist, raconteur and social scientist, he searches for patterns—and tells us how they have affected his own work over the years with Talking Heads and his many collaborators.

To figure out your why, here is a simple exercise you can take yourself through: List what you are passionate about. List all the reasons you want to start a company. List all the emotions and desires you feel. (Frustration, hope, happiness, wanting freedom, etc) List what you want to change, improve, or make better in the world. These could be literal to the activity (i.e., make something easier), the feeling your customers will have (i.e., make people happy), or something you want to change (i.e., make the world better).
