It’s all about tempo and pattern.

Without it, music would be cacophonies of sound. We would find it hard to enjoy. The rhythm brings order and structure. It helps us to anticipate and therefore to be surprised and satisfied.

Rhythms in our daily lives do the same thing. We could just fire off as many notes as we can as often as we are able and hope for the best. If the objective is to sound as many notes as possible this is a useful strategy.

If we hope to write symphonies with our lives, our work and our contribution, the rhythm becomes a key ingredient. Mastering the ebbs and flows helps to make sense of all the activity and weave it together in satisfying work.

The question is, would you want to listen to the recording of your own life? Would you want anyone else to?
