The Secret to Music Production Deadlines

Are you in a place of your life where you feel stuck? Do you find yourself bored, nothing to look forward to and it seems like nothing changes? Chances are there are things that need to be finished so you can move to the ‘next level’ of where you’re at. By setting deadlines, you’ll start to see change and movement towards the direction of where you want to go.

Music Production deadlines are a musician’s secret weapon. It’s a catalyst that will bring out the untouched and dusty talent in you. Deadlines bring focus, momentum, and a teeth-gritting ambition for reaching beyond what you may think is possible. A deadline is hope, in the deepest sense. It’s optimism and faith rolled all into one.

If taken seriously and with dignity to vows made with one’s self and others, deadlines are a force to be reckoned with. If you ever need a nice butt-kicking way to get yourself motivated to start a project or finish it, a music production deadline is just the thing you need.

Tutorial: The Secret to Music Production Deadlines
1) Figure out the most important thing you would like to see completed. Then start with this project only. You’ll notice how many unimportant details you don’t need to do, especially when seeing new results from your deadlines.
2) Each project has many tasks to complete before the project can be completed. Pre-think the obstacles you may face with each task and give yourself time to solve them. I have found thinking through items saves me time and completes the project in half the time.
3) Work hard, give yourself breaks, have fun and most importantly, follow through. If you’re tired, discouraged or can’t see the end in site, go have some fun! Take yourself out on a ‘date’ – do something you would normally say ‘I don’t have time for this’.

3 ways to fit music in schedule

3 Ways to fit Music Production into your Busy Schedule

It seems that everyone today has one major thing in common. So many goals and so little time.. Especially when ‘life happens’ its easy to get discouraged from doing music. Family, friends and some people you don’t even know may say ‘why you doin music when you got all this other stuff to do?’… Next thing you know its been a few months and it seems like your music is stuck.

Also, with consistently developing new goals, fitting music into your daily schedule can be challenging. Between life, work and family, music can easily come last in line on our priority list.. Why?

The answer is simple – because it is fun!
It makes your heart sing and dance!
It is what you want to do every moment of every day!

Sounds crazy but its true – there is this inner critic that says if circumstances of finances, family life, and your job is bad, then you can’t enjoy music either… So let’s start there….

How to fit music production into your busy schedule:

1) Think about what you’re thinking about. If you’re in a bad mood, uninspired, bored, frustrated, 95% of the time you listened to someones negativity or got a hold of a bad thought. Thoughts are like a virus or medicine… which one do you want running around in your head?

2) Choose what is important in your life. Are you spending time on meaningless tasks or wasting time in front of the TV watching other people live their dreams? By eliminating meaningless tasks, you free up a clean slate of time that is fresh for music.

3) Schedule time for music and keep it. The only way to get anything done on a deadline is to schedule the appointment and keep it. This requires faith. If you don’t have faith, a music career is going to be a long and hard journey for you. When you commit to doing music you’ll find doors of creativity and opportunity will open up. Not only that you’ll finish the music your start! To create music daily requires you to be a self starter, highly motivated and passionate to go above and beyond when you are faced with obstacles. Remember, creating music isn’t ‘just creating music’. It is also learning the music business, marketing, taking photo shoots, developing your website and having relationships with your fans and clients.
