In this episode of DAWCast: Music Entrepreneurship, I discuss time management tips for musicians.
I know a lot of musicians who feel overwhelmed by everything they think the should be doing. While there is a limit to what you can do alone, I do believe that everyone can make better use of their time.
In addition to discussing Steve Pavlina‘s time management techniques, I also get into several specific tactics for musicians. After all, I want to provide you with actionable advice.
In this episode, you will discover:
- Why clarity of purpose is central to managing your time.
- Why 90 days is a good amount of time to build towards your goals.
- How to remain flexible when you are working towards accomplishing a goal.
- How to maintain focus while working on projects.
- Why failure should not be feared.
- Why you should be spending less time planning and thinking.
- How to spend less time making decisions.
- How procrastination will lead to a loss of opportunity.
