Yesterday I watched the movie Bohemian Rhapsody. Have you seen it?
I got 5 business & data lessons out of the movie:
(1) 🔥 𝗗𝗢𝗡'𝗧 𝗧𝗔𝗟𝗞. 𝗘𝗫𝗘𝗖𝗨𝗧𝗘.
Queen recorded the album “Night at the Opera” in only 3 weeks, on a remote location.
(2) 👽 𝗗𝗔𝗥𝗘 𝗧𝗢 𝗕𝗘 𝗗𝗜𝗙𝗙𝗘𝗥𝗘𝗡𝗧.
Freddie Mercury was a perfect example of authenticity.
Yes, everyone knows it. “Be yourself.”
But if you're honest: as a data professional how much do you adapt your behavior at work?
(3) 💡 𝗞𝗡𝗢𝗪 𝗬𝗢𝗨𝗥 𝗕𝗥𝗔𝗡𝗗 & 𝗔𝗨𝗗𝗜𝗘𝗡𝗖𝗘.
Freddie had a crisp and clear answer to the question: “What makes Queen different?”
How good do you know the people that use your data insights?
(4) 🏃 𝗧𝗔𝗞𝗘 𝗥𝗜𝗦𝗞𝗦.
Most music singles are only 3 minutes long.
Despite pushback, Queen released Bohemian Rhapsody as the single of their new album. Length: 6 minutes.
How much risk do you take as a data analyst or scientist?
(5) 🌎 𝗧𝗛𝗜𝗡𝗞 𝗕𝗜𝗚.
Freddie had a bold vision and expressed it freely.
This is something I want to do more.
It's not easy.
At times, there’s a voice in my head.
"Don’t be this 'know-it-all' person. Don't be arrogant."
But when I listen to this voice, I am limiting myself.
Something to work on in 2021 😉
