Monday is about remembering the movers, shakers and game changers, of things that look incredibly trivial now, but challenged many on arrival.
Scaremongers like to write a lot about the insane changes the next generation will bring. Here’s some changes already brought, against all odds and discouragement, and it all turned out alright.
Some perspective for your back-pocket, to think about when the times are getting tough as a change maker.
I repeated Marvin Gaye’s album What’s Going On five times when I first heard it. I love the music, I love the funk, I love the lyrics – I love the feel of it all.
And you guessed it right… the record company hated it.
Thank the Music Gods that it got released, because now we have this incredible album for our own enjoyment. An album ranked as 6th Greatest Album of All Tome by Rolling Stone magazine. Not a bad result for someone having a crack at breaking the mould.
What’s a convention in your industry that you dreaming of breaking? What’s stopping you?
