If you don’t know this about me yet, music production is a hobby I’ve been into for quite a while now. |
A little over 10 months now, to be exact.
But I have to admit, for two-thirds of those ten months, I didn’t take it as seriously as I should’ve.
I’d work on the craft for one day, then leave it on the back shelf for a few weeks.
That was the worst case scenario, and yes, it was terribly inconsistent.
But recently, my brain made a switch, and I made a goal to create something everyday, even if it was incomplete.
And when I say create something, I mean literally anything.
Whether it was a new melody, a catchy drum pattern, or a cool sound cooked up from a synthesizer, it didn’t matter.
During my downtime, I’d also listen to music from other artists for future inspiration and to learn new production techniques.
Over the weekend, I decided to take a break from emailing and put all my focus on creating music.
I’m not exactly sure what happened, but everything in my brain just clicked. And after 10 months of experimenting, scrapping, and (A lot of) struggling, I finally produced something that may not be perfect, but I’m actually happy with.
Which reminds me…
There was something that my first mentor once told me. To paraphrase it:
Whenever you’re learning something new, you’re almost always going to come across a mental block at some point. But don’t let that make you quit. You have to keep pushing that ‘wall’ until you break through.
I guess today is Motivation Monday, huh?
But it’s true, nonetheless.
Writing emails is no different.
If you don’t know the basics, I suggest you read How to Become an Email Titan first. Then start writing everyday. It doesn’t mean you have to email everyday, though I highly suggest you do. But the point is to work on the craft everyday. And inevitably, you will see improvement.
