I may not be the best singer in the world, but I do know how to harmonize.
In music, to harmonize is to combine two or more notes in a pleasing manner. It’s the science of structure, progression and relations.
And in business, it’s exactly the same thing.
A salesperson creates harmony by taking someone’s need or want and matching it to a product or service. A manager makes sure that everyone’s working on what they do best. A business owner aligns development with objectives. An entrepreneur sees where activities in one area can mesh with another. And personally, harmony comes from matching our actions to our beliefs.
And we feel incongruent when we are unable or unwilling to create harmony.
Action – If you feel “out of harmony”, look for the things that don’t line up. Then take the steps you need to bring harmony back into your life.
