One unexpected source of inspiration was in the form of Sunday night TV - Never Tear Us Apart: The untold story of INXS.
In our opinion it was great and we really enjoyed the flashbacks to our teenage years. If only I had the chance to go to an INXS concert, the atmosphere would have been amazing. 80's fashion and great music to the side, it was two incidences in particular that really jumped out at me.
1 - The band made a decision to stop performing covers and only perform their original music. Scary idea at first but look how it turned out. Making that leap and the decision to back what you do no matter what, that is inspiring!
2 - Chris Murphy in the early discussions of becoming the band's manager, he told the band if they want to be big and achieve unbelievable success they need to play every night. Up and down the coast in as many venues as possible so they improve and become the best at what they do. Wow, two lessons here - think big, bigger than you ever thought possible AND be prepared to put in the work. We love thinking big and we know there are times you need to go that extra mile.
We are looking forward to the second and final part of the mini-series on sunday night. Hopefully a few more inspirational ideas and more great music!
