Music Mileage


I spent a great deal of last weekend writing an article for MusicianWages.com. It felt like it was sucking the life out of me because the whole time I was trying to find the right words, I felt like I should have been playing guitar. The article is really just about getting to work. Tackling those things that seem impossible, or finally doing the small, simple tasks that you put off just because they take time.

I used to be a competitive distance runner, and sometimes getting up at 5 to get an extra few miles in before class seemed like a waste of energy, but no matter how bad I felt on the run, I knew I was getting better than the guys that were sleeping in. It's not always about running faster than the competition, it's about running more. As long as you're putting in the miles, you'll see results.
