Business & life advice in song lyrics….gotta get out to get this to last!

Business & life advice in song lyrics….gotta get out to get this to last!

Music plays a big part of our business. We love music as a non-caffeinated way of altering the mood of our business, people and office dynamic. Sometimes you need to be lifted up, sometimes you need to be inspired and sometimes you need to dial it down.


So today’s Friday Fun are some lyrics that have great application to business and life.


So what song is it today…..???


“Gotta get out to get compensation.
Gotta get out to get this to last!”


Every accountant seems to reads very similar business books (Lean Start-Up, etc) and one of the ones on the everyone seems to read is Michael Gerbers e-Myth where he breaks down business into essentially acting as Technician, Manager and (though I have always disliked the term) Entrepreneur.


Due to some unforeseen staff issues I’ve found myself on the tools a lot more than normal in the last 3 months.


This is not ideal.


I’m not the best Debit & Credit accountant in the world.


Honestly, I’m probably not even the best Debit & Credit accountant in my family (true story)


Don’t get me wrong, I am very good at what I can do, but I’m the first to admit that being a straight technician or do-er is not my strong suit.


However the real problem is that this also affects the ability for me to grow the business or even simply learn new things, both of which are much more important.


So I know I’ve got to get back out of the doing I’ve been doing recently and back into at the very least the managing part, but ideally what brings the most value which is the strategic, bigger picture stuff.


That is what makes this last for me.


Sometimes this isn’t black and white, but work out what brings the most value to your business, firm and life and focus on that.


Happy Friday one and all.
