Being heard is often important to the change seeker, they want the opportunity to voice an opinion, state a fact, or influence a decision.
You hang a picture on the wall and barely notice it again. A guest visits your home and asks about the chiming clock and you realize you didn’t even hear it. A bird chirps outside your window or the noise of rush hour traffic means it is just another day.
There is a quest to be heard, but when it is the same noise, the same picture, or the same old daily grind it goes completely unnoticed. It might be the element of surprise, a new venue, or a different sound that changes everything. We target our marketing, our voice, and our opportunities to influence in the same space at the same time and following the same rules, and yet we wonder why we aren’t being heard.
Make a different sound.
