The great guitarist Alex Lifeson, of the 3-man progressive rock band ‘Rush’ was entered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013. In his acceptance speech, Lifeson attempted to tell the bands story and his experiences using only the word ‘blah’. Opinions were varied on Lifeson’s acceptance speech, but the one thing we can all agree on is that it was memorable. Certainly no one else had ever done this, and he made an impression. Link to Alex Lifeson’s acceptance speech below.
Floyd Wickman, a world renowned professional motivational speaker and real estate/sales trainer often referenced a funny saying, “Why sell with blah, blah, when just blah will do.”Now we have no idea whether he originated the saying, but the point cannot be lost, which is ‘say more, with less’. As in let your actions speak louder than your words.
In our fast-paced world, it is important to slow down and focus on the important things such as family and the joy of life. So many people have their heads down while driving, walking or wherever… and they miss all that is going on around them. Far be it from me to judge, but safety and courtesy to others are an important part of a civil society.
Does it really matter what someone tweets the second they do it? Will it even matter 5 minutes from now? You will remember the good and yes, sometimes bad times with friends and family, but I believe that you will rarely remember what random search you were doing on your cell or tablet while in the car, unless of course that experience is tied to something unexpected, which rarely is a good thing.
So back where we started… when blah will do the trick, there is little or no need for blah, blah, or even blah, blah, blah! Life is short, don’t live in regret, work with a real estate professional who really knows how to add value to your life’s work and respects your time.
