Derek Sivers, an entrepreneur and musician shared several life changing experiences in an interview with Tim Ferriss.
Derek shares a story of when he was 18 and played in a band. One day, the band’s bass player told Derek that he could not go to play in a show in Vermont and asked Derek if he wanted to. Derek took the paying gig and did well at the show. After that, he got a call to play at an art opening and then got another gig. Derek received many more invitations to play in other events. He shares that when you are starting out in your career, the best thing you can do is to say yes to all the opportunities that come your way. You never know where it will take you.
