Summing It All Up

Posted in Uncategorized on January 8, 2011 by Patrick

Jason Miller has once again hit it out of the park by summing up the totality of my approach to magic:

“Get your shit together and take care of business.”

Amen, brother! Amen! If you are a magician who is unemployed, you need to work on getting employed. Now, it might not be your fault that you’re unemployed; times are hard. But you need to work on getting a job. You need to work on fulfilling your responsibilities. If you’re a magician and a deadbeat dad, you are a poor magician. If you are a magician and you are mentally ill, it is your responsibility to get well.

Of course, magic isn’t a — well, magic wand. Getting your shit together takes work, and it takes real work. Taking care of business is work, and it’s hard, difficult work. But it’s worth it, and it’s better than the alternative.

Happy New Year

Happy new year! Don’t forget to do the most powerful act of magic you can do on the beginning of the New Year: write down your goals for the year.
