Business & life advice in song lyrics…what’s important right now.

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…..???


“All my people right here, right now
D’you know what I mean? “


Right now I should be in the United States (San Jose to be exact).

Right now I should be with 5,000 other attendees listening to people talk about business and accounting.

Right now I should be on a free trip with people I really enjoy hanging out with (and 5,000 other attendees).

Right now I should be networking and having an absolute blast doing it.


But I’m not.


I’d really love to be there….but I’m not.


So why not?


The best way I can put it is that it comes down to what I think is most important right now.


What is most important changes through life and can even change on a weekly or monthly basis.


Right now the most important thing to me is a little guy who makes every day of my life so much harder than it’s ever been, but also brings so much fun to my life that it brightens every day beyond anything I thought really was possible.


Don’t get me wrong I’m going to miss being in San Jose (especially as I can see everyone having fun via Twitter). A part of me is extremely envious of not being part of the fun and learning new things, especially when I’m changing a nappy or dealing with the little temper tantrums where I can’t understand what he means or wants.


So while I’d love to take a week or two out and be in San Jose the problem with that is that:


I’d miss not being there to help put him to bed.

I’d miss not being there to give him breakfast.

I’d miss not being able to take him to the park-eh to see the woofs (park and dogs to the rest of us)

I’d miss not being able to pick him up in the air and wave dinosaurs around like I just don’t care.


So right now what is the most important thing to me isn’t me.


It may not be me ever again, but I’ll never be happier to admit that.


D’you know what I mean.


Happy Friday one and all.
