Greatness is often misconceived as some kind of eccentric ability that is some how built into a person from birth. While this can’t really be proven or disproven, I believe that true greatness is a combination of natural talent and just plain hard work. You can see it in some people, we all know one or two who have that certain magic about them. Some turn out to seemingly fulfill their destiny while others fade away into mediocrity; held back by fears and doubt. Work ethic is the deciding factor in the cultivation of that one in a million spark that those few people possess.
To call Chase Hadden a prodigy may be saying too much or quite possibly not enough. The kid is just plain dope at everything he touches. Toys become instruments, instruments become fluid expressions, the simplest of concepts are transformed from mundane to multi-faceted. It’s all there: an entire skill-set and vision just waiting to be unleashed on the masses. The only question is what will become of the person behind the undeniable talent? In my heart, and I don’t say this often, but I really believe that this kid has something special to share with the world. I hope he puts the work in that is necessary to do justice to such an impressive mind.
On that note I would like to formally introduce the newest member of the CLYW team and my good friend, Chase Hadden.
