Yesterday I was so pleased to attend the Broadway show “Beautiful” a biography of Carole King, the multitalented songwriter and musician of the 1960-1990 era (and beyond!).
The theatre was sold out; no surprise, as Jessie Mueller playing Carole King won the Tony for best leading actress in a musical.
Of course, being a boomer, I was observing my own age group largely 5 +/- years older/younger than me, everywhere in the theatre, enjoying ageless music from our youth–tunes and lyrics–that defined several decades of developing music to what it is today (or I wish it were more like!).
The 1971 title song of the show starts
“You’ve got to get up every morning with a smile on your face. And show the world all the love in your heart. Then people gonna treat you better.”
Boomer or not, older or younger, please take a hard look at your LinkedIn profile. Are you smiling inside and out? No? Change it this morning, please.
