A perfect song can help you process business challenges and see through them to opportunities on the other side. It can motivate you to see things you might otherwise miss.

I have a collection of ‘perfect songs’, including this one. It is from a movie, Sunshine on Leith, which is a feature film build aroud the songs of The Proclaimers.

I like this video because it is a modern take on a song from twenty years ago. The modern take makes the (relatively) old song relevant to today and that is what many of us are doing in our businesses.

I also like the video because it is a community coming together to celebrate. Shot in Edinburgh in 2013, what you see in the video was shot after the film was completed. The team felt the original ending was a bit small so they approached the financiers for £500,000 to shoot this bigger new ending. Key to it was bringing in the community and what is what makes it special.

To me, this video reflects making something old relevant to today and the value and thrill of working together. I hope you like it.
