Lessons From The Blues and Boogie Bar

Many of you know that I am a music lover and that I really enjoy live music.  On a recent trip to Nashville we were told by our daughter of the Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar.  It was so good we went twice.

The second night we went we were treated to what they called their “open mic night.” 20-25 different musicians signing up to be put into random groups to perform for 15 minutes.  It was incredible and awesome.

Over the next few days I will share lessons learned from that one night in the Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar.

I believe that you and I have lessons and things to learn in front of us every day if we just look for them.  These lessons are there to remind us of things in our leadership and personal journey. 

Every experience, every moment, has the opportunity to teach us if we are mindful and take some time to reflect on those moments that we experience.

You may say I don’t have time for that.  I would counter that if you are about being better everyday then you have no choice but to take the time to learn from the daily, oftentimes routine, mundane, and unlikely teachable moments.

I look forward to sharing what I learned from four hours in The Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar over the next few days.

I’d be interested to know some unlikely lessons you’ve learned from your every day moments.  Send me a DM or a message if you’d like to share them with me.

Be on the lookout for the moments you can learn from today. 

I’m cheering for you.
