It’s not to anybody’s best interest to think about how they will be perceived tomorrow. It hurts you in the long run.
I can relate to the expression of terror on George Clooney’s face. This is the look I get whenever I play the guitar in front of another sentient being. It’s a combination of fear, excitement, joy, and incipient disaster/humiliation.
I love the music of Brian Wilson and I find his story to be very inspiring.
