Do These Things Every Day | Forming Healthy Habits to Grow Your Music Career

Typically when we hear about habits, it’s in the context of breaking bad habits.

But there are good habits, too – habits that improve your life, business, and skills.

The key to this is relying on habits rather than motivation.

Motivation means you’ll end up doing things when you really need to, but only sporadically.

Habits let you get into a groove so it’s not a question of if you’re going to do something today – it’s when.

Start forming good habits today. Listen now to hear some examples of what you can and should work into your daily routine!

What you’ll learn:

  • Why you should practice your instrument every single day
  • How to keep learning by watching artists who inspire you
  • Why it’s good to post content on a daily basis
  • Why you need to work on your business every day
  • How to stay up to date on music news
  • How you can find practically every new mention of your band on the internet
  • Why giving yourself time to do things you want to do is vital
  • How habits keep you going even if you’re facing burnout
