Lessons from ‘Tina – the Musical’

Lessons from ‘Tina – the Musical’

Last weekend, I surprised my dear friend Dr. Patricia Burlaud with tickets for the Broadway Across America tour of “Tina – The Musical.”

We were both looking forward to a night of entertainment but got much more.

The energy and vibrancy of the show left us both contemplating how we could show up with similar energy and enthusiasm every day without burning out.

If you haven’t seen the show, let me tell you, it’s a must-see! Through powerful acting, singing, and dancing, the performers brought the house down with high energy, passion, and enthusiasm.

It was clear that they knew how to manage their energy to deliver a high-quality performance every time.

But how can we apply these lessons to our everyday activities and show up with the same energy and enthusiasm in our jobs and our daily lives?

Here are a few insights we gained from the show:

  1. Take Care of Yourself: The performers in “Tina – The Musical” know the importance of caring for their physical and mental health. They prioritize rest and recovery to deliver a high-energy performance consistently. This lesson is about caring for ourselves outside of work to show up with the same energy and enthusiasm daily
  2. Surround Yourself with Positive People: The cast of “Tina – The Musical” clearly has a strong bond and works well together. This lesson is about surrounding ourselves with positive, enthusiastic people at work. It can be infectious and motivate us to bring the same energy and enthusiasm to our jobs.
  3. Passion and Purpose: The performers in the show have a deep love for what they do, and it shows in their performance. This lesson is about finding purpose in our jobs and aligning our work with our passions to create a sense of fulfillment that will drive our energy and enthusiasm.

Seeing “Tina – The Musical” was a night of great entertainment and a valuable lesson in showing up every day without burning out.

By caring for ourselves, surrounding ourselves with positive people, and finding passion and purpose in our work, we can bring the thunder and make every day count.

I’m still buzzing from the show, so watch this space – you never know, it might be time to pull out my Tina wig and work on my best “Proud Mary” shimmy moves – Hahaha!

Now, here are some questions for you to chew on:

  1. How can you bring more energy and enthusiasm into your workday?
  2. How can you take better care of yourself to avoid burnout and be a positive example for others?
  3. If you could perform a duet with your favorite musical icon, who would it be, and what song would you sing?
