Music Mountaineering

Sometimes it seems that getting your music career going is like climbing a mountain. The top seems so far away, the cliffs are high and dangerous, there are obstacles everywhere and the weather doesn’t look so good anyway. Well you’re right, success is that way, it is a mountain and you do have to climb it. But take heart, with the right clothes, some gear and a good guide, you can make it.

"There's always got to be a struggle. What else is there? That's what life is made of. I don't know anything else. If there is, tell me about it". - Van Morrison

Someone once said, ” luck is when preparation meets opportunity” and you don’t want to be unprepared on a mountaintop. So start right now, get a pen and start writing down all the things you need to do, to get you to where you want to be. Keep writing and editing your list for a few days.

Divide your list into
1 Objectives that you can be working on right now
2 Objectives that you want to accomplish soon (within 90 days)
3 Objectives that will have to wait a little while (the mountaintop)

"Keep working hard and you can get anything that you want".
- Aaliyah

Plan Your Journey - That’s it, you’re somewhat prepared. Now start putting one foot in front of the other. The first part of journey should include a little more research. Find out what you need to know. There are literally thousands of resources available for every part of the music industry in your area. (including this page) Find out whom you need to know. Here, in your own area, and nationally and internationally. Keep putting one foot in front of the other. Do something on your list everyday.

"All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." - Walt Disney

The Action Plan -Creating the list will help ease your mind and organize your thoughts. There’s no way to keep this all in your head. Don’t worry if building your action plan (your map or list) takes a little while. Often, when you start a new project you have to learn as you go and there is no way you can know everything you need to at the beginning. I use notebooks; I fill them up with everything on the topic I can think of. References to info I will need, contact info, websites, ideas and rewrite after rewrite. This is a really easy way to keep it all together and there is another benefit. We are What we Think

“We are largely what we have thought ourselves into being”
- William Walker Atkinson

Climbing the mountain - Really, you don’t need to go beyond your abilities at any given time. As you continue on your journey to becoming a songwriter you will continue to build your skills and meet people who can help you take the next step. Remember, ”Luck is when preparation meets opportunity” Keep preparing for your opportunities so that you be ready when they arrive. Just keep taking one step at a time, one foot in front of the other. Another day another objective crossed off your list. When you get tired, burnt out, irritable, stop and take a breather. Look back the way you came and remember that you are that much closer to the top of your mountain.
