Driving to work today, I just couldn't get this darn song out of my head. I have a pretty short commute every day, less than 4 miles, and only a few stoplights. So I usually forget to turn on the darn radio, and usually just listen to all the voices in my head as I drive to work and sometimes have conversations with them. Ok, I'm kidding about the voices, but not kidding about this song that was stuck in my head.
I knew EVERY word to it, as I imagined myself singing to a sold out crowd at some distant arena with lights and smoke and speakers and the crowd... As I perform this make believe concert not only do I know the words, but I know the notes to the song. The rhythms, the guitar licks, the percussion, the tempo. I even know the facial expressions I need to make to ensure the song is even more awesome. I can sing every verse, every line, every grunt, every woot!
As I drive in the rain on my short commute, I sometimes look around at the other people driving with me. Just a few feet from my window, yet miles away like they don't exist. There is a door that shut and a window separating us which means we are not allowed to acknowledge each other or something. I see some drinking coffee (like me), some using their phones which is not allowed in California, some picking their noses and there is me... Singing this song, at a make believe concert with the crowd going wild.
When I arrive at work, I stop and think...
Why is it that I know all the words to this song, yet I sometimes forget the words to a simple script to close a buyer or close a potential seller... And the script that I can use in real estate is only two or three sentences...
Maybe we should learn our scrips by singing them?
