Songs to Make You Move

I love playlists. I have playlists to help every mood – quiet, no words, medium tempo jazz, uptempo workout, and on and on. I love creating specific soundtracks to help me in my work and life.

I’ve had two clients recently whose theme was movement. One chose Quixote Consulting’s build a bicycle Charity Bike Build charity team building program while the other chose Quixote Consulting’s collaborative team building program Roller Coaster.

Both asked for a soundtrack for their meeting. They asked the right person! Most of my computer’s hard drive space is filled with music. It’s one of my passions.

Here’s a playlist I created to make you move. Pick a song on here that you have to be your theme, your soundtrack this coming week as you move out into the important things in your world.
