Goal Setting

CHECK OUT this article by Derek Sivers: “Listen to my music, and let me know what I should do…”.

In summary, why are you asking someone else what you should do?

You have your own vision for your music, don’t you?

Maybe ask more specific questions like, “How can I improve the level of the guitar in this mix?”

You should already have a vision of how you want the guitar to sound in the mix. What will get you there?

Decide what you want to do, then ask the questions that will get you there. It’s really that simple.

If you don’t have a vision and a passion for your music, should you really be doing it?

If you are only in it to meet women, try THIS instead.

Never ask someone else what YOU should do. Only you can decide that.

  1. Yes! I agree. I love specific questions.

    When someone says, “What do you think?” – I’m stumped. Too vague. (“I think I’m hungry. I’m thinking of that girl I just saw on the street.”)

    When someone says, “What do you think of the EQ of the guitar?” – I can give an answer.
