“It’s always better to shock people and change people’s expectations than to give them exactly what they think you can do.”  -Jonah Hill

Predictable gets you killed, in war or business.

In music or art, it makes you a cliché.

Variety is the spice of romance, be it the unexpected rose or cupcakes sent to their office or that hand drawn card they find in their bag telling them you love them.

Mix it up.

Last week my partner started singing.  I was amazed and impressed because she had never mentioned she could sing and suddenly she was in full on Whitney Houston from “The Body Guard”, and it was better than good.  I was speechless in the best way.

Surprise them with your hidden talent and they will always wonder what else you have up your sleeve.
