Today we're going to talk about something more important than your tech gear...
Your tech people.
This is important - even if you are a team of one!
Easter Sound Tip #4
Tech tips don't always have to be about "technology". This one is about you - The Tech!
It can be easy to get caught up in the business of running sound, managing technical details, and preparing for a service or special event. But are we taking care of ourselves and our team?
And this gratefulness goes both ways!
Remember to thank those around you for the services they are providing. Reach out to other ministry teams and members to make sure they are appreciated by you.
Do your special services this weekend feature new tech volunteers or worship team members? Be sure to make them feel welcome and important.
Remember the important quote from Carl W. Buehner:
"They may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel."
Another important tech tip:
Get Good Sleep!
You may be laughing at me right now, but this is important.
Getting a good night of sleep is critical for your physical and emotional health.
Your brain will be sharper, you'll be more ready to engage with those around you, and you'll be better physically prepared to handle the challenges of fast-paced live sound events.
One more thing... with good sleep, we'll be more present in the moment. And if we're not able to be present in the moment, then why are we here?
Sleep on it, then let me know what you think :)
