Procrastinating is just a creative way to sabotage your music career
Is there a next step that you really need to take with your music career, but you keep procrastinating and putting your dream on hold because things are not perfect yet?
Here’s something I’ve learned that completely transformed my music career when I finally got it: Done is better than perfect, because when people wait for perfect, nothing gets done.
From one music artist to another, I totally relate to wanting your work to be perfect before you get it out there. After all, the music industry feeds you that. But, here’s what I REALLY think happens with musicians… Waiting for things to be perfect before you move forward is a way of hiding behind fears of rejection.
Put simply, procrastination is an excuse for not taking control of your music career. Then, years down the road, you look back and your heart sinks because your dream collected dust on the shelf labeled "someday." Don’t let this happen to you.
Are you ready to be in the minority? About 85% of the musicians I coach have been putting their dream on hold for years now. Whatever your next step is that you need to take, out of love, I’m calling you out and pushing you over the edge.
So many music artists became successful because they just took action when other, more talented artists were "waiting for the right time."
What is that next big step that you need to take? More importantly, ask yourself why you’re not taking it — and then DO something about it!
To support you, I’m here to nudge you to the edge. Sound scary? Ok, but how much is your dream REALLY worth to you?
