In life, there is no task to small to be proud of. Each and every task should come with a reward. Whether it is making your bed in the morning, or completed a 30 pageresearch paper, you should reward yourself with a charm each time.
To quote from another blog:
A friend asked a waitress in a diner what she loves doing besides serving tables. She replied somewhat unenthusiastically, “I don’t know.” At which point the friend replied, “I guess I’ll see you here next year then.”
Are you going to accept the ordinary problems in life, or are you going to create extraordinary problems for yourself? This is Day 1.”
I know this all seems like a lot, but change can be great. Especially now! We are entering the spring solstice of twenty-ten and nothing can be marked as impossible.
I recently had an inspiring phone conversation with Rick Goetz who has been in the Music Business for many year. In Ricks music career, he has been a major label A&R rep (back when that was important), a music supervisor, an artist manager, a reality show producer, a bass player and the head of a digital record label. Now he has starting his own company called Musiciancoaching.com. Rick did all this just because he felt he could be good at it, and wanted too do it. When he was interning he wanted to be an A&R rep, so he printed up business cards that said he WAS an A&R rep. His passion shines through when he speaks and you automatically want to be associated with him.
The reason I called Rick was because I feel I am at stand point in my music industry career and needed advice on how to many the next step, how to make that next leap or change. Rick gave me a lot of great advice but moreso he put some passion in my heart that I felt had drained out over the past year. 2008 was a rough year for me career wise and he helped me realize what I needed to do.
This photo is of my home office. I created this in January of twenty-ten and have been using it everyday since. It keeps my focus on my work and not on the television. As you can see, I have my vision board above my computer. Every day I look at it and note all the things I want to do in my life and things I try to achieve. It also says “be awesome” so I try my best to do that.
