68: A Magician’s Mindset | Ben Jackson

Background and getting into magic, museum of natural science
More than Magic
Magic requires an audience to be appreciated, as opposed to a musician
work so hard to conceal the skill, the details no one should detect
How magic is like coaching
Captivating audiences with humble props
Barriers to entry to captivate a room are small, you don’t need the big production...
The way magicians think
Most people when they come across a problem they can’t solve, they say it’s impossible and they stop. That’s where Magicians start, they think of the impossible and figure it out.
It’s a mindset to think about impossible things and then bring them into a theatrical reality
Wouldn’t it be cool if...
Create predictable outcomes to ensure a magical moment
Multiple Outs - steer the conclusion of an effect based upon the audiences input. You’re prepared for any situation, and can create the impression that that’s the desired effect all the while.
Planning in advance for an opportunity to arise. When it arises you are ready to give someone a moment they’ll never forget.
Stories of preparing in advance
Planting the seed in someone else’s mind
Ham sandwich theory of magic

Always thinking what the audience will see
How do you get into the present moment and draw your audience there too
You owe your audience your best
A magician can give someone the reminder that the world is full of possibilities. Nothing is impossible.
