Songwriters tend to have this “win or lose” mentality. When I play my songs for someone, I either “win” and they take a copy, or I “lose” and they reject my song (and by default, me). I would suggest that we look at those opportunities as “win or learn” opportunities. Again, if they love my song and take a copy, I have won! But, if they don’t, I have a chance to turn my “loss” into a “learn”. Here’s how I do it.
I’ve discovered that a “learn” can be just as valuable as a “win”. If you’re continually learning, you’re always getting closer to the big “win” you are chasing. And, the more I learn, the better I get at my craft. Win or learn. You come out ahead either way.
