JUGGLING.

Also known as multi-tasking.

It’s become a virtual by-word for 21st Century Business.

You’ve got a report to write. Emails to send out. A conference at six. The report for Friday’s meeting is still only a rough-draft. And you’ve got the biggest enemy of all staring down your throat. The clock!

It’s two things. It’s a balencing act. And it’s a blog post being written by a writer who can’t think and chew gum at the same time.

So, this multi-tasking thing…is it an art? Is it an innate quality. Is it something we can learn. Is it a trait we can perfect?

I’m not sure. I’m only a simple writer.

But I am a simple writer who loves music. Perhaps with that theme as a background, we will turn to a multi-tasker extraordinaire. The incomparable Neil Young.

The following is a live, solo performance of his classic “Heart of Gold” from 1971. How many things does Neil do in the performance. 1) He sings. 2) He plays Guitar. 3) He plays harmonica. 4) He puts his heart into the song. 5) He puts his soul into the song. 6) He feeds off the audience. 7) He tells a story…much different than just singing. 8) He engages his audience.

That’s a lot of things. 

He is a genius. He is a balance. He is a juggler. He is a businessman. And he is a multi-tasker.

Enjoy…
