Fun has always been and will always be vital to our culture.
After Norcast’s recent merge with Blue Rooster Telecom, fun continues to permeate our company. Thanks to encouragement from our mascot—Blue Roo—we fully embrace the benefits of crowing. Crowing improves our quality of lives.
By crowing, we literally mean standing on a small box in front of a crowd, bending slightly at the knees, flapping our arms, and letting go our best impression of a rooster crow with 100% effort.
Initially, we pursued crowing for the pure fun of it. It also served as a great way to celebrate our Blue Rooster theme. As we engaged in the fun of crowing, we found unexpected benefits for ourselves and others. Friends told us they actually enjoyed crowing, not just for a bit of fun and exercise, but also for the resulting thrill. They continued to crow despite the considerable public embarrassment.
We decided to look into the benefits of self-expression through crowing, and what we found matches our experience.
In the blog virtuesforlive.com, Stacey Thompson writes that there are several ways to become more self-expressed in life. These include:
Speaking your truth in the moment
Widely defining yourself
Engaging in creative techniques
Pursuing wants and passions voraciously
Developing a keen sense of reality
As Dr. Wayne Dyer so eloquently says, “Don’t die with the music still in you. Listen to your intuitive inner voice and find what passion stirs your soul.”
How fortuitous that we can accomplish all of the above by belting out a rooster crow at the top of our lungs in front of a crowd.
Thanks for reading, and please feel free to join in the fun.
