‘Good things come to those who wait.’ A famous line from an immensely successful advertisement for Guinness (it takes two minutes to draw a good pint). Is it true?
Even if it’s not about immediate celebrity, it helps to be visible.
Someone, near or far, might need a basset horn, a viol, a contrabassoon or a harp to fill a gap in an orchestra or ensemble they’re putting together for a performance. Your skills, your qualifications, your experience, your availability, your location, even the good opinions of others, all should be visible for anyone who needs someone with exactly your skills.
Good things come to those who wait, as long as they wait intelligently.
