James Brown’s Golden Rule

A blog by Seth Godin turned the “Do What You Love” advice around to say “Love What You Do”.  You can read Seth’s blog here. I was wondering if he was clarifying, complicating, or innovating.

My post below was inspired by this notion of clarifying, complicating, or innovating…..

Maybe these days the golden rule “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you” is better stated in the negative, “don’t do to others what you don’t want done to you”.

It may be even better to highlight the cause and effect of this wisdom and say it the way the godfather of soul said it in the song Static, “Don’t start none. Won’t be none.” This way, the statement is vague enough to include all manner of good and bad and asks you to think twice about the action you take unto another.

I’d like to know your thoughts on this. And feel free to tell me what you think of James Brown who with all the available music in the world found a way to come up with his own beat. Did he clarify, complicate, or innovate?

If you don’t know James Brown, here’s a link to a video James Brown Documentary. Enjoy!
