During the recording of the song, Sweet Home Alabama, Lynyrd Skynyrd‘s lead singer Ronnie Van Zant says, “Turn it up,” asking the recording engineer to turn up the volume in his headset. Legendary record producer Al Kooper thought it sounded good and decided to leave it in the final mix.
Sometimes we just need higher volume. You’ve experienced it sitting in your own den as your family watches TV. Somebody, maybe you, ask the person with the remote (and that should always be YOU), ” Turn it up!” Maybe the room noise is making it difficult for us to hear. It could be the content volume is just too low and we can’t make out the dialog.
If it’s not loud enough we can’t hear it well enough to understand it. If we can’t understand it, it’s like that proverbial tree falling in a forest with nobody there to hear it.
Turn it up so you can understand better. Learn more. Grow. Improve.
Turn it up so others can understand you better. Learn from you. Grow from your help. Improve because you care enough.
Turn it up!
