Dance like nobody is watching high performers

– Posted in: Employee Wellbeing

As a high performer in our network, you work hard and smart.  You make things happen and you get things done.

But, do you carve out time to play?

I was saddened to learn that a friend of mine passed away suddenly – there he was one moment, sitting on the sofa, got a blood clot and died. Gone.

Music was his passion, and through creating time to play in his life, he became a talented DJ known as the ‘godfather’ in the dancing world.

So I am dedicating this blog to him, Garry, and I would love you to join me.

This is how we will do it:

  1. Turn up the happy volume in your life
  2. Crank up the joy
  3. Switch on the fun

And finally, at least one time this week –

Put on your favourite music and dance like nobody is watching…

To Garry, who has departed, thank you for sharing your amazing gift with the thousands who flocked to your events, from surgeons to secretaries: we all got blissfully lost in dancing to your music where nothing else mattered. Your legendary spirit will live on in the hearts and minds of the people you touched through your talent.

As for you as a high performer, carve out time to dance like nobody is watching and even if they are, do it anyway.

Here’s an idea – how about you dance your way in and out of your front door at home, your car door, the plane door, any door. Go on; I dare you!

P.S. It was Albert Einstein that said: “Play is the highest form of research”. Carve out time to play, before the world grabs your attention. Again.
