Learn to Play

Recently I urged you to learn to dance ... now I am suggesting you learn to play an instrument. (A Fender Telecaster is my weapon of choice.) Why? It helps you realise that music is made up of a tiny collection of notes that can be combined, re-arranged and re-presented to form new tunes and songs. Even though man has been doing this for hundreds, thousands of years ... we can still create new songs from the same, small collection of notes.

In your business what can you achieve by looking afresh at what you do - by combining and re-arranging activities to come up with new ways of doing things?

And remember, in music a silence, a pause if often very effective. So, what can you eliminate to improve what you do?
