Being Brave Means Balancing Funniness With Seriousness

World class runner. World class silly?

Being brave means approaching your work with deeper thought, bigger commitment, higher goals, and more enthusiasm than people think is reasonable. Also, be funny. Being a really funny person can be awkward, but oh so necessary.

But don’t be all of one, or all the other. Be a nice balance of both.

Happy Birthday You Tube

Wanna Watch You Tube?
Wanna Watch You Tube?

You Tube.  You love to watch it.

You Tube videos are funny, serious, wacky, sexy, vulgar, informative, personal, revealing, captivating.

Google bought You Tube for $1.65 Billion.

This, in less than five years.

Crazy idea, that You Tube thing, all those five years ago.

There will be another crazy thing.  One after the other.  The really crazy thing is that it can now come from anyone, anywhere.

Will your idea be the next viral Internet phenomenon?  Maybe that’s too big.

Will your idea be the next big thing in your department, your division, your organization, your industry?

Wouldn’t challenge you if I didn’t believe I could do it myself.  Seriously.

Lead or follow.  Remember?

Pants On The Ground

It’s time for a complete 180 degree turn from the jungle jeff “seriousness”. It’s time for complete nonsense and a laugh or two. You good with that?

Who doesn’t like to laugh?  Humans were born with certain predispositions. Laughing is near the top of everyone’s list.

Love or hate American Idol, it doesn’t matter to me.  I love it for a few compelling reasons, which aren’t listed here. And what started my loyalty to the show was Simon Cowell’s “brutal honesty”.

If for no other reason, we tuned in week after week to watch him be honest.  It was a time when I really needed a role model for “brutal honesty”.  Was desperate for it myself and didn’t know how to get it.

So, by watching Simon, we got to see the power – the magic – of brutal honesty.

I actually saw watching American Idol as leadership training. Most others saw it as entertainment.

Brutal honest is essential for world-class results.  You could see in the contestant’s eyes, and their body language that Simon’s feedback was the most important of all.

Even if it hurt.

These people were trying to be the best in the world.  The next ‘common person’ to sell millions of songs. Millions. Can you comprehend that?

Simon would say what everyone else was thinking but no one had the guts to say. This intrigued me. This motivated me. It also made me laugh.
