I Want to Learn This Song on Classical Guitar and Other HR Lessons

I Want to Learn This Song on Classical Guitar and Other HR Lessons

by Frank Roche on April 26, 2010

If you have a chance, spend a couple of minutes listening to the song in the video. I’m learning it now — note by note. I have a goal of being able to play it by my birthday in mid July.

The funny thing is, I’ve never played classical guitar. As of this moment, I don’t even own one, although I understand from the guitar store that my Spanish guitar is going to be shipped this week. (I’m practicing on a standard acoustic.) Why this song? Why July?

I have a few goals on my bucket list. I still want to go to Everest base camp. I want to see Machu Pichu. And I want to play Spanish guitar. You see, the first two are easy. I could buy a ticket tomorrow and go do it. Learning the Spanish guitar takes thousands of hours — years really. And it’s the one I want to put on my list most.

I don’t mind the practice. I don’t mind stumbling. I don’t mind just learning a few notes at a time. No one will tell me it’s great. Or even good. I’m doing it for myself. As a challenge. As a way to open up a little creativity.

My take on managing people goes to the same place. “Do what you love and success will follow” is something I say every day. We have people who work with us who have goals. They have dreams. Imagine what it would be like to tap into just a smidgeon of that drive — that energy.

If you’re putting together another employee engagement training course, ask yourself: What are our people good at?

Everyone has a hidden talent. A passion. What are you doing to find it?
