Everyday we create new music

Apr 5, 2014 | LATEST

If my goal were to write a new song everyday, I would wake up, drink some coffee, find inspiration by digging into mine or someone else’s playlist I love…  I would listen to all those work tapes, and see if there’s a message I hadn’t talked about yet.  I could listen to all the voice memos I have on my phone.  It would be a very specific approach to creating something that matched my mood, my story, my headspace for that day.

I make goals to ensure that I’m always working toward something new with my music.  It feeds me.  Last night I met Mark-Allen Barnett. He’s a brilliant songwriter and has helped many artists reach the charts, and beyond being a brilliant songwriter and performer, he was a real inspiration to watch in his element.  He has a great song that says “we don’t choose music, music chooses us”.  I heard that.  I heard it and it hit me again today on Facebook when a buddy of mine posted about a similar thing.

It’s important for us all to create what we love and stick to a plan to develop that thing, and try to push hard to make it remind us to smile.  Hell, it’s not a bad idea to let everything remind us to smile. Smiling is just as important as creating because it’s the one thing that tells our bodies to stay positive and keep us moving forward.  A smile also commmunicates confidence, it’s the best way to flirt, and it’s worth 2000 chocolate bars (minus the calories).

Long and short:  Set goals for your passions the same way you set goals for your career, and never stop smiling.
