I’m kicking off the first show of 2021 with a subject that I’m incredibly passionate about, but first I’m asking you to do one thing…
When it comes to your music and your creativity, it’s easy to want to progress quickly and race through to the next milestone. Who doesn’t, right?
But by trying to get there in a hurry, you often end up getting there much slower than planned, or never at all.
Because the greatest impediment to creativity is your impatience.
Jumping to write new tracks without properly finishing the one you’re working on, half-learning new skills, not fully forming habits…
It’s easy to become impatient and kid yourself that you’re progressing quickly.
And while the discomfort of your current progress can tempt you into hurrying things up, by doing so, you’re more than likely to make mistakes, trip over yourself, or even have to start all over again.
I’ll be the first to admit that this is something I’ve had to overcome myself, so in this week’s episode I’ll be sharing from my experience how to recognise impatience, and how to overcome it, so that you can stay firmly on track to smashing through this year’s goals.
Start the year how you mean to go on…tune in to the Finish More Music Podcast now!
