In the session room I posted this video of Doc Eason talking about memory and the importance of remembering peoples names.



Memory is clearly ubiquitous in magic. Developing this skill to serve you well in magic will benefit greatly in wider life.

I wondered what other specific skills learnt in magic help with situations outside of a magical scope.

(Ha as if there is any life outside of magic!!! I'm joking....I think. )

I know Harry has a ton of advice for us in this specific realm.

I’ve been doing magic since I was in grade school and in high school I got a part time job in a department store, hoping as a salesman I could show some tricks to   customers. But alas, Mac, the store manager, assigned me a job as a stock boy. In the basement. Alone.

 

I hated being alone and smoked cigarette after cigarette as I did my work down there. Alone.  Yes, in those days I smoked. Two packs a day. Well, one day Mac caught me smoking in the basement. That wasn’t allowed. “Hey kid,” Mac said, “Make that cigarette disappear. Now!”  I looked up in apparent fear and I put the cigarette into my left hand, snapped my right hand over my left and opened my left hand. The cigarette was gone! “Okay?” I asked Mac. “Hey kid, come up here.” I was a salesman!

I think we as magicians do things boldly and with a sense of confidence when we are in front of a group of people.

As someone who has been in sales.. a feeling of confidence and taking chances does payoff in the real world.
