The Silence Is Deafening

ROME — He was the son of a singing baker and became the king of the high C’s.

What Voices Do You Listen To?

I read am an avid ”listener” to the “voices” from various blogs, newsletters, magazines, and books. This dialogue includes blogs such as: The Conversation Agent, Egg Strategy, and Seth Godin.  I get newsletters from Wharton, Harvard Business Review, and Marshall Goldsmith.  I listen to a variety of music, including blues, country, classical, and harder rock. Books range from art, to thrillers, to business.

A Voice Silenced

What if that voice, that blog, that book, that radio program, that TV station, etc. – no longer existed?  We are who we hang around with.  When something tangible is lost, we notice.  Are you prepared for that?

This silence usually happens suddenly.  The website link no longer works.  The band breaks up.  The author ceases to publish more books.  The tenor dies. Most of our work is trading time for money.  You may want to spend more of your time “listening” to the voices that matter to you.  That influence you.  That enrich your life.
