5 lessons from the movie: Bohemian Rhapsody

Yesterday I watched the movie Bohemian Rhapsody. Have you seen it?

I got 5 business & data lessons out of the movie:

(1) ๐Ÿ”ฅ ๐——๐—ข๐—ก'๐—ง ๐—ง๐—”๐—Ÿ๐—ž. ๐—˜๐—ซ๐—˜๐—–๐—จ๐—ง๐—˜.

Queen recorded the album โ€œNight at the Operaโ€ in only 3 weeks, on a remote location.

(2) ๐Ÿ‘ฝ ๐——๐—”๐—ฅ๐—˜ ๐—ง๐—ข ๐—•๐—˜ ๐——๐—œ๐—™๐—™๐—˜๐—ฅ๐—˜๐—ก๐—ง.

Freddie Mercury was a perfect example of authenticity.

Yes, everyone knows it. โ€œBe yourself.โ€

But if you're honest: as a data professional how much do you adapt your behavior at work?

(3) ๐Ÿ’ก ๐—ž๐—ก๐—ข๐—ช ๐—ฌ๐—ข๐—จ๐—ฅ ๐—•๐—ฅ๐—”๐—ก๐—— & ๐—”๐—จ๐——๐—œ๐—˜๐—ก๐—–๐—˜.

Freddie had a crisp and clear answer to the question: โ€œWhat makes Queen different?โ€

How good do you know the people that use your data insights?

(4) ๐Ÿƒ ๐—ง๐—”๐—ž๐—˜ ๐—ฅ๐—œ๐—ฆ๐—ž๐—ฆ.

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) ๐ŸŒŽ ๐—ง๐—›๐—œ๐—ก๐—ž ๐—•๐—œ๐—š.

Freddie had a bold vision and expressed it freely.

This is something I want to do more.

It's not easy.

At times, thereโ€™s a voice in my head.

"Donโ€™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 ๐Ÿ˜‰
