I know I said on Monday that I would get back to music, but…
It’s the beginning of another year and I know that our habit is to make all these new years resolutions and then try to keep them. Yeah, how’s that been working for you?
So before I get to work on this All Wood and Doors project, what I thought I would do is reflect on the past year and ask myself these questions:
What was my biggest triumph last year?
What goals did I achieve that I wanted to achieve?
What kind of person was I last year, someone I’m proud of?
Was I a good friend?
Was I as good as my word?
What did I do for other people last year, with no thought of return?
Did I practice enough?
Did I eat right?
Go to the gym enough?
Drink too much?
What was last year like for me?
What was my biggest disappointment?
I’m just shooting from the hip here trying to think of things that I should ask myself and I recommend this exercise to you as well.
Write your questions down and then think about them and then answer them with brutal honesty.
A careful examination of what transpired last year for you as an artist, a person, a friend, a lover, a husband, a professional, etc will give you the insight as to what you really should resolve to do with this year coming up.
And keep in mind that we never know how many of these things (years) we get, so make each one count.
Now I’m going to sit quietly and think about those questions I just created. I hope that you do the same.
And don’t forget, you get the world, the government, the love, the success that you deserve, so make certain you deserve the best. Be the best you can be.
And don’t put any effort into making anyone else feel bad about themselves. That’s no way to be.
Happy New Year.
