Music and Business

Having attended a symphony concert last weekend brought the thought that there are several similarities between creating melodious music and Entrepreneurs developing a fine-tuned business.

Creating a melody requires the correct musical notes. While a spectrum of notes is available to all, picking the right notes to create a musical piece is critical. One or more wrong notes and the resulting music is noticeably out of tune.  Similarly in business, an Entrepreneur has access to various resources – markets, clients, management team, employees, facilities, investors, suppliers, advisers and so on. Creating the right blend of these resources, just like selecting the appropriate notes, will allow the development of a beautifully functioning business. A wrong choice or decision here and there ruins the musical piece or a well-oiled business machine.

Playing only the correct musical notes does not make a melody; the notes have to be played to the appropriate beat. The business activities of a growing organization have to be running at the right pace. You cannot have some parts of the company forging ahead while others are lagging. Moving towards the goal at a managed pace leads to success.

Entrepreneurs do not have to be musicians, but applying lessons of music might help them in successfully growing their businesses.

What Could Entrepreneurs Learn from Music?

Making melodious music and Entrepreneurs developing a fine-tuned business have some similarities.

Creating a melody requires the proper musical notes. A spectrum of notes is available to all, but picking the right notes to create a musical piece is critical. One or more wrong notes results in music being noticeably out of tune.  Similarly in business, an Entrepreneur has access to multiple resources – markets, clients, management team, employees, facilities, investors, suppliers, advisors and so on. Blending these resources properly, just like selecting the appropriate notes, will allow the development of a beautifully functioning business. A wrong choice or decision here and there ruins the musical piece or a well-oiled business machine.

Only playing the correct musical notes does not make a melody; the notes have to be played to the appropriate beat. The business activities of a growing organization have to be running at the right pace. One cannot have some parts of the company forging ahead while others are lagging. Moving towards the goal at a synchronized pace leads to success.

Entrepreneurs do not have to be musicians, but applying lessons of music might help them in successfully growing their businesses.
