I was talking to someone recently about their songwriting goals. He expressed frustration over their lack of success in achieving any of them. So, I asked for more details. He laid out a list of goals that would be ambitious even for a seasoned pro. In fact, I had only achieved one of his goals. His list read something like this:
Every one of you reading this could make that happen given enough time and effort. And, those things are the steps that lead to the bigger goals and opportunity. Making a list of attainable goals will keep you going when times are hard. Because you KNOW you can achieve them, you don’t get as disappointed when you fail. You just keep marching along and trying different ways to reach the goal. When you reach one of your goals, you replace it with something slightly bigger, yet still realistic. One day you look back at a long list of goals met and you see how far you have come. Make those goals realistic and work your butt off to make them happen. That’s the ticket to success.
