Making Time…

Do you ever feel like you’re running out of time? That every moment, is slipping away while you do all the little things throughout your day? I hate that feeling! It is always easier to sit down at the couch, flip on the tube, as your precious time ticks away. But, we are not here to do the easy stuff. We are here to work on our dreams, and get shit done! In this edition, I want to go over what I do when time seems to be slipping away from me, and what to do when productivity dips. Lets get it!

What do you find yourself making time for?

Tip #1 – Just get started!

Sometimes the hardest part of anything, is getting started. Have you ever noticed that once you make the decision to start something, the entire process gets a little easier? That the entire process starts to fall into place, and you start knocking out whatever it was that needed to be done. This is one if the biggest realizations that I had when it came to my work. I noticed that once I actually started working on something I was able to focus and get more done.

So the next time you have trouble getting with a project, just get started! The pieces will fall into place once you start working. Your mind is a powerful tool, and sometimes it works against us. So become a master of this tool, and don’t let your mind play you for a fool!

Tip #2 – Stay Consistent

Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither will your empire! It’s great to have one project completed, but don’t kick your feet up quite yet! The next project, the next blog post, or recording session is just around the corner. Now with the average American’s attention span dropping to a whopping 8 seconds (the goldfish has 9 seconds) we have an extremely limited window to reach our audience. So staying constant is more than a must, it’s a make-or-break virtue you must embody.

To overcome this, I like to picture a crowded bar where everyone is trying to get the attention of the bartender. In this example, the bartender is your audience. So instead of going up to the bar, patiently waiting for your turn, and eventually getting looked over, let’s make sure that bartender knows you’re there! I do this by making blog posts that resonate with my readers, I post video’s on my many Instagram profiles dropping some knowledge. I create content that would help me stand out in the crowded room. A major part of this is staying consistent and always working. The more content you create, the more your audience has to consume. This is like going up to the bartender, cracking a joke and making a big order, THEN coming back for more. This way the bartender (audience) remembers you, and wants to keep an eye out for your next offering.

Tip #3 – Think about the money/Time you’re wasting!

Now this one is the one that gets me moving almost 100 percent of the time. I want you to think about your money, specifically the money you invested in your work. Think about that $35 a month software subscription. Think about that $800 camcorder that is collecting dust in the corner of your studio. Now if this hasn’t gotten you up off the couch, I think this next one will get you up. Think about the people that believe in you. Think about your friends and family that you LET DOWN when you don’t create content!

I believe that wasting someone’s hope and losing their trust is the absolute worst thing you could possibly do. Especially in a business where you depend on people to listen to your music, read your blog, or watch your videos. So if you have the money to throw away, I want you to realize that people are not so disposable. So please, don’t let your supporters down! Keep working so they can be more proud of the things that you do, keep them supporting you! Show them that you are worth supporting, and make them proud to say that they believed in you from the start.

Conclusion

So, there are a lot of things out there that can distract you from accomplishing your goals. It is up to you whether you let it stop you or if you’re going to make time for your projects. You can tell a lot about a person from what they invest their time into. Do you want to be known for wasting time and never accomplishing anything you started? Or do you want to be the person that absolutely kills it at everything they start? The choice is yours. Be well my friends.

Invest in yourself…

We will be okay…

This post is going to be hard. It’s going to be hard, but I need to make it.

The last few months have been a roller-coaster ride of emotions, and things finally came to a head in these past weeks. I never thought that I would be in this position, but I’m thankful to be here.

As some of you know, my girlfriend and I have been expecting our first child together. Finding out that we were going to be parents was an amazing feeling. I was so happy, and I was excited to be starting this new journey with my partner.

Unfortunately, our journey came to an end unexpectedly.

Our Daughter, Aria Sky, was born preterm and passed away shortly after coming into this world.

Ten fingers, and ten toes, a beauty mark on her left cheek, and a heart that wouldn’t stop. She was perfect, and she was our everything. I held her in my arms, and her tiny body was the most precious thing. But she was not meant for this world, and was called home before we got to know her.

I’ve held back from talking about what happened, and I’m still trying to get over everything. It’s been two weeks now, and I am building up the strength to talk about it. My mind has been focused on my girlfriend, and making sure she is taken care of. I deal with death and losing people differently than most people, but I have been trying to stay positive.

A big part of me is not sad, but angry at what happened. I am trying my best not to let the anger get to me, but it’s slowly fading away. I get sad once and a while, but I’m comforted that we have an angel looking over us.

I know she is in a better place, but I miss her and I wonder what she would have done…

Thanks for listening…
