I’ve had quite a few opportunities to interact with people who are “famous” to various degrees. Unlike many folks, I find I’m more fascinated by the “supporting cast” for these folks, than by the celebrities themselves.

The music director and arranger for a pop star. The producers, directors, cinematographers, editors and special effects artists on a Hollywood blockbuster movie. The physical trainers and nutritionists for star athletes.

While it’s a curiosity to me to consider natural talent, I’m not in a position to take advantage of that sort of knowledge. I think it’s these members of the supporting cast that hold the secret insights to how the very best in world reach their full potential, and that’s a lesson worth learning.
