Give me five minutes with you and I can probably predict the sounds, thoughts, and ideas that currently surround you.
I can tell you the books, people, and ideas that have shaped your taste, posture, economic outlook, and lingo.
You could do the same with me.
Our work probably looks like who we work with. Our music we write probably sounds like our music heroes. Our art probably resembles the work that convinced us to pick up the brush. Our coaching probably resembles the coaching of who once coached us. I could be wrong here, but I’ll take the bet.
So the question here is who or what needs muting and who or what needs to be turned up?
We can’t keep our surrounding sounds a secret.
Indeed, they are the melodies we whistle while we work.
