Today, everything happened. I had more issues to deal with at work than ever before. I had three people respond to my advertisement for a gig audition. I had a possible employer respond about a job opportunity. Basically, I had just enough time to breath. By the end of the day I was really regretting that break I took yesterday.
A musicians schedule can be very unpredictable. Successful business strategies, however, often require regular and predictable scheduling. As independent artists, we are both musicians and business entrepreneurs. This is why it is important to get stuff done ahead of time whenever you have a free moment. With today’s blog and post scheduling aids, many things can be placed on automated schedules. This allows for much more time to breathe (and practice – remember last week’s post). I assume that many of you are already familiar with these scheduling tools. However, if you would like to learn more about them mention it as a comment and I will provide the information in a future blog post.
