What are you aiming for?

If you aim for nothing you'll hit it every single time! This was a common phrase that my mentor would tell me when he wanted to stress the importance of setting goals and then being patient as I worked towards them.

As we have been talking about creating practice routines, habits and logging it, I think it is so important to remember or re-evaluate what exactly you are aiming for. It will vary depending on the season you're in but the more you can define it, the more progress you will be able to capture and seeing that growth will ultimately catapult you forward.

Is your ultimate goal to play Yiruma's River Flows in You or Happy Birthday for your mom? Do you want to be able to sing and play Christmas music on the guitar without needing sheet music or perhaps you want to be able to sing in the choir at church with a greater sound? Decide what one or two very specific things you are aiming for in your music and share it with your teacher so they can guide you to that exact objective.

You know it feels so good to accomplish a task or check off an item on your to do list because it gives you a confidence boost. Confidence that you stuck to something you said you wanted to do and confidence that you are doing something you never thought you'd be able to do.

So set a musical target for you so we can celebrate together once you hit it!
