I’m going to talk about a new attitude that if you apply to your time in the studio will more than TRIPLE your results and in LESS time! Like all great things it’s sooo simple too.
Here goes… Everytime you sit down to make music, learn a new trick, play with your new studio toy, or make a riff, do these two things
a) Decide exactly what you want to acheive before you let yourself start. Call this your goal.
b) At every point ask yourself – “Is what I’m doing contributing to my end goal? ”
The fact is you can always do things quicker, and it is easy to go off in tangents while doing any task. This isn’t effective! If you trying to reach a set goal the key is EFFECTIVE use of your time. For this all the vectors of your effort need to point direct to your goal.
It’s fine to have mess about times, but set limits to them and define a time as your play about time, experiment time.
When you working to a goal, define it and continually review your steps for contributing to that goal by asking yourself –
“Is what I’m doing contributing to my end goal? “
If not stop and do something that does. Eliminate the the play that consumes your time. Laidback Luke makes, mixes and masters his tracks in an afternoon in a small bedroom!
You’ll soon be producing tracks in 1/3 the time, getting more done, reaching your goals quicker and progressing faster.
So you have more time for this…
