…or are you a drifter?
I heard a powerful quote yesterday from former Thomas Nelson Publishing CEO Michael Hyatt, “You never drift to a destination you would have chosen.” Ouch!
The best thing I can do when I read a quote like that is to ask myself how it applies to what I do. So, am I a drifter musician? Do I just pick up my bass without a plan and “noodle” through a few minutes at random times, or do I have a destination chosen?
The “destination” could be having a song you want to learn by a certain date, a technique you want to master, or a gig you want to earn. Simply put, when we have a “destination” in mind for our practice time, both short and long-term, we will increase our chances of reaching that destination 100-fold!
Think about your bass-playing destination today. Then, consider how you can plan to reach it.
