When Time Continues to Fly…

Well, I’ve written some goals down and I’m starting to get an idea of some things I want to do. It’s all still a bit vague. BUT I’ve printed off an entire chart of 50+ songs that I want to record — a row for each song, a column for each instrument or step of the process. It’s a small feat, but I think this is really going to motivate me. I’ve also written someĀ specific goals down, with the date that I wrote them down. That is going to be a very important sheet (which I will adjust as goals get completed)…

Sometimes it feels like time slips through my fingers. And so I think it will really help me to see the date that I wrote the goal down. Dates help me. That way, when I see something has been sitting around for too long, I have urges to get it done. But not so much if I don’t know exactly how much time has passed… It’s odd. I’ve heard that our brains are very bad at measuring time, which would make sense.

I’m basically working on time management and self motivation. Speaking of this, I don’t think self-motivation can do a good job to boost you forward by itself. I’m really starting to see how “surround yourself with the right people” can work out. I’ve never really liked that term in the past, because I don’t likeĀ excluding people. I don’t want to think any less of someone if they aren’t particulary helping me move torward my personal goals. That feels a bit self centered, but it’s not really about that. Being around people that motivate you doesn’t mean anything against people who may not push you towards your goals a whole lot. And it doesn’t mean you can’t spend any time with those kinds of people. Just make sure that you have enough time with your motivators to balance it out. Sometimes you give, sometimes you receive. That’s my theory, anyway.
