Managing your time.
Maintaining a successful music career relies heavily on time management. Everyone has the same amount of hours in the day, how you use the time is important. Being efficient with your 24 hours is how you’ll advance your music skills. Schedule your day to make sure you’re getting done what you need to get done.
Try to think of goals that you can achieve per hour, setting goals this way will improve your productivity massively. For example, if you want to learn a song by the end of the day, aim to learn a verse per hour. This will maximise your productivity and use the hours in the day in the best way.
Setting aspirational goals is all well and good, but if you aren’t achieving them then it’s pretty pointless. Plan how you want to spend your time, if your goal is to learn a new song by your next music lesson, work out how many hours per day you need to focus on this goal. Once your planning is up to scratch, your time management will be more efficient.
If you’re bad at disciplining yourself, try to spend more time with people who have more experience in the industry, like one of the Max Rock team, who will be able to help you achieve your goals much quicker. Taking the time to work with us will be so beneficial for building your music skills.
As we mentioned earlier, goal setting is a habit that you should get into when looking to improve your music career. Well-known names in the industry will all have goals that they want to achieve every day- that’s how they’ve got where they are. If you want to perform a sell-out gig in a few years time, start by performing smaller gigs to help you move closer to your long term goals.
So you’ve got your time management sorted and set your goals, now stay persistent. You’ll have setbacks on your journey to the top, but don’t be disheartened by this. You’ve set these goals for a reason, so stick with it.
