You’re at the supermarket and you run into a beautiful woman (or charming man). You can’t believe how awesome your conversation is, they totally get you and you totally get them, and there’s chemistry. You exchange numbers and say “I’ll call you”. Then the anxiety starts. When do I call them? What should I say? What if… I have to leave a voicemail?!? I’d rather text. Oh, but that’s weak, I should call, right?
What if I told you in one sentence I could ensure you never leave another awkward voicemail in your life? One piece of advice that will rid you of all that anxiety and self-doubt. Are you ready?
Sing your voicemail.
You can’t sing well? It doesn’t matter, I’m not saying impress them with your vocal chops, I’m just saying sing. I’m also not saying you need to sing a particular song, just make up a melody and sing what you would normally talk. Singing will get you out of your head and into your flow, the zone you get into when you’re not worried or scared about what will happen. From that place of flow, you will be cool, calm and creative, not to mention it will probably be hilarious.
The only rule here is YOU MUST TRY THIS before you knock it. Your head won’t explode and the singing police won’t come and haul you off to jail. Everything will be fine, and I promise you’ll get a call back!
