“By being our best right here, right now, we are making music.” #bgdtcoaching.
Thinking about the idea of making music, we could look at various aspects related to scores, instruments and the like.
However, taking the theme of making music from a personal development perspective, a few thoughts can be set out now. Looking back at the challenges overcome to reach where we are, we might be pleasantly surprised at the progress achieved.
Yet as we have been busy getting to our objectives, hitting targets and reaching goals, we have also been making music. If you were to transfer these steps into a soundtrack to accompany the journey to now, what would it sound like? Soft and gentle? Rousing and awe-inspiring?
Similarly in the present, when we are living our potential, being and doing our best in every endeavour we are called upon to perform as part of our work, we may consider it as making music.
On another note, there are occasions we are making music by being silent. A gift freely available is that of giving people, and indeed ourselves, the space to just be with the moment. In such a way we are again engaging in making music, albeit without making a sound.
