Getting From Here To There
Excitement motivates us. It jumpstarts us and makes us feel good.
Now that you are motivated, take your list of where you'd like to be. Think about what steps you need to make to achieve each item. This is where the work begins. It may not be pleasant but jot it all down and be realistic. If you want to sell 2,500 CDs in the next 12 months what do you have to do? You'll have to work! I know, not fun but if you are excited about your CD it should not be terribly difficult. Things will NOT happen by sitting on your ass unless you sit on your ass working your Myspace page. Make time to get out and network. Yes, outside the comforts of your home! Go to music conferences. Go to music events. Even go to open mics. Get out there and meet people.
So how do you get from here to there?
Patience. Persistence. Perseverance.
