Do more than is required. What is the distance between someone who achieves their goals consistently and those who spend their lives and careers merely following? The extra mile.”- Gary Ryan Blair I read a great blog a while back by one of my favorite writers Seth Godin. He has written some amazing books about marketing and expanding your business without reinventing the wheel such as “Big is the New Small” and “Purple Cow”. After I read “Sing It”, I had to share it with you. Read on: “I spent some time a few days ago listening to a nascent band performing classic rock songs. The first group sang a note-for-note rendition of a song by the Stones. The notes were right, but nothing else was. The singer didnt know what the song meant. And the musicians, they just stood there. No energy, no smiles, no connection. It could have been a funeral with a great soundtrack.
A concert isnt about the music, is it? And a restaurant isnt about the food. “The funny thing is that learning to Sing It is a lot easier than learning how to play the guitar. For some reason, we work on the technique before we worry about adding the joy. “If youre going to go to all the trouble of learning the song and performing it, then SING IT. Sing it loud and with feeling and like you mean it. Deliver it, dont just make it. When you answer the phone or greet me at your office or come to a meeting or write something, dont bother if all youre going to do is do it. Sing it or stay home. “I had composed this post in my head, when, in a scary example of blog synchronicity, they announced the next song. One by Bluë Oyster Cult, of course. And yes, the announcer demanded that the guest on stage give us more cowbell. More cowbell indeed.” For a FREE List of 3 Plus Bedroom Paulding County Homes under $150,000 with prices, addresses, and descriptions click the link or fill out the form below.
