As I listen to ‘The Boss’ by George Benson, see clip above, I am unwinding after a long day at the office. Unfortunately there isn’t a glass of red wine out, I’m on the tea today. You may also question my choice of music, while very spontaneous how does this help you gain cruise-control?
Our lives, personal, emotional, relationships and work are actually more chaotic than ever. There are expectations all over the shop, a never-ending list that never gets completed. Think about it, how many targets need reaching, shop floors sweeping and coffee cups pouring? We may sometimes preach positivity but the cruel reality doesn’t always pay off. Everybody is busy, everyone needs more and no-one cares at all.
They say you are what you eat but what if you feel how you listen?
Hit pause, silence, back to the start, you need to rewind those feelings. While I don’t mean to preach or compare, we are both in the same mood now and should accept our joint fate. Together, one word to one-note, we are sharing a moment that gets us closer to making change a reality. We are writing, listening, reading, understanding and sharing but, what if there was an alternative?
We Make Change is a great name and even by my standards, pretty straight-forward to work out. You may already consider yourself a changemaker or project manager, started a community and felt what I feel, now. You see, we’re all busy people and yet we still believe change needs to happen. There is no secret, catch or hook? It’s a simple idea that we all can do and guess what, we’re starting right now.
