"In roughly 365 days I could either be viewing this post as a depressant (due to my occasionally lackadaisical self and lack of effort over the upcoming year), or I could be viewing this same exact post saying, "That.....that is where I began. That is where it all started."
Today is business day! Actually, this whole winter break is a "business break." Aaaaactually, I'm praying that this year will be a successful "business year." When 2016 rolled around, I made a New Year's resolution. Some call New Year's resolutions dumb, but I believe that if you are truly determined on sticking to said resolution, what is the harm in trying? After reading a post on Facebook that read
"5:00 a.m. : The hour when legends either go to sleep, or are waking up"
I made my resolution. When I first saw it, I thought to myself, "How cool would it be if someone ACTUALLY did that. I wonder how successful they would become by simply adding an hour or two every single day. (Including breaks, weekends, and summers when a person would usually sleep in, keeping to the "Legends Hour" could add up to 4 or 5 hours a day). So, this year my goal is to, every single day, keep to the "Legends Hour." I know that we are only four days into the New Year, but I have gotten so much done so far.
After working out this morning, I came over to the computer lab and I am buckling down and getting work done. I am updating my web presences, creating web presences, and booking. Along with waking up (or going to bed) at five in the morning, I am constantly finding, reading, and absorbing articles about the music industry, about the weekly economics of the industry as they change, etc. I am researching notable innovators, successful entrepreneurs, and other singer-songwriters who offer advice to those of us who are still getting our feet wet. Documentary after documentary, book after book, I want to go pedal to the metal this year.
Knowing myself, I can see myself looking back at this post as 2017 rolls around. Will I have come leaps and strides from when I made this post? Will I have begun to grow into the artist that I believe I could be? In roughly 365 days I could either be viewing this post as a depressant (due to my comfortability and lack of effort over the upcoming year), or I could be viewing it saying, "That.....that is where I began. That is where it all started."
There are also a couple of surprises coming up in 2016! Maybe some events, maybe some projects, and maybe a major change or two :)
Stay tuned, readers and listeners!
