Indie music blogger Bob Baker asked his readers for their feedback on things that keep them from reaching their musical goals.
They’re all things that I could relate to, and they’re probably things that most musicians can relate to.
Here are the ten that jumped out at me:
10 Things That Keep You From Reaching Your Musical Goals
- Not setting goals to begin with
- Lack of time
- Not planning well enough
- Not prioritizing my goals
- Lame but convenient excuses
- Not knowing where to start
- Fear of failure
What’s interesting about the list is that almost all of the reasons that musicians come up with for not reaching their goals are things that they/we control.
There are a couple of things that didn’t make Baker’s list, but probably should have:
- not sucking; and
- not finding an audience.
Not sure who controls that, though.
Let me know what you think of Baker’s list. And – is anything holding you back?
