Leadership, passion and life lessons through classical music?

http://www.ted.com/talks/benjamin_zander_on_music_and_passion.html

I am not one for classical music.  In fact, much to my embarrassment I am a total philistine when it comes to classical music – I am among those who enjoy a little bit of Escala-type cross-over into the pop genre but little more.  Much to my surprise I was really touched by the following TED talk by Benjamin Zander on music and passion and leadership.  True passion is contagious you know.  This guy exudes passion for classical music, and before you know it you are tracking with him, longing to know more about Chopin and really secretly hoping you can love something like he loves his music – that you can have "shinning eyes" with regards to some issue in your own life.  This is to be truly alive to something.

May we all become "one-buttock" players in life!  Enjoy.
