I DON’T HAVE ENOUGH TIME! I NEED MORE TIME TO WORK ON MY MUSIC! Have you ever said this? I bet you have, all the effing time. I bet that oftentimes it’s difficult to balance your music and your life. And you may want more time to work on your music.
You don’t need more time, you just need to decide. (Seth Godin)
There. Problem solved. End of blog post.
Or are you thinking, okay, fair enough, but how and what do I need to decide?
It’s a matter of setting priorities.
You need to figure out where to spend your time and have the guts to quit things that you’re not passionate about. Now, obviously this is not a black and white thing. It’s not like you’ll decide to quit on cooking a decent meal every night (because you’re not that passionate about cooking) or quit sleeping (because you only need 5 hours a night anyway). It’s about being really honest with yourself and admitting what brings you the most joy, gives you positive energy and adds to your well-being in general.
It’s about spending time on what’s most important to you RIGHT NOW!
You can have it all, just not all at the same time. (Betty Friedan)
Therefore, you prioritise and then set goals so that you can hold yourself accountable and be in control. When you do that, you take good care of yourself. As a consequence, you’ll have more energy and focus so that you can take better care of the people who need you, focus on your work and create more music.
Do you want to learn how to prioritize your life so that you can make more time to make more music? You can start on that right away with this FREE fun, colourful and holistic approach to setting goals.
Making music isn’t easy. If it were, everybody would be doing it, right?
Music is personal, it’s about you and how you express yourself. And because it’s so personal, nobody will work as hard on your music as you will, no matter what your end game is - whether it’s just to play it for yourself or to share it with others, to turn it into a profitable career or as a hobby.
It is a fact that the music industry can be a cold business.
And whatever your reason is for making music, sometimes it’s good to stop, take the business out of the music and reload so that you remember why you started making music in the first place. Managing expectations helps to diminish the chances of being disappointed.
Taking a break from music every once in a while helps you to put it in perspective.
While you’re taking a break, you have time to get your meditation game one, listen to the music from artists that you love and take the time to get back to what you value the most. And an easy and fun way to do this, is through this FREE fun, colourful and holistic approach to setting goals!
