The Finish More Music Podcast

Oct 28, 2019

When it comes to music, we all want to enjoy our creative time and we all want to enjoy being in the studio as much as possible. 


However, sometimes it's great, sometimes it's amazing and sometimes it just pain sucks! 


We’ve all experienced the downsides at some point and one of the common reasons I find for this is because we set unrealistic expectations for ourselves. 


We compare our music to people far ahead of us on our journey, and then feel disappointed and down heartened when our music fall short of our expectations


In my opinion, creating more realistic expectations of ourselves lead to improved momentum with our music and a whole lot more enjoyment in the studio!

In this episode, I’m going to propose an approach for taking that kind of pressure completely off our shoulders and instead, positively influence our chances of enjoying our time in the studio. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Be honest about where you are in your production journey
  • Set your expectations based on your current experience
  • Set yourself challenges based on your current skill set
  • “You've got killer taste and you're measuring the gap between that and where you actually are now” - Ira Glass
