What’s up everybody! Today I wanted to talk about productivity tips for a musician. We all know what it’s like to have to many things on our plate and not feel like there is enough time in a day to get things done.
Here I’m going to share somethings that I find helpful to achieve my goals and keep pushing myself to new heights. I by no means am an expert. I watch a little to much tv at times and I use to be a huge procrastinator. However as I started my journey on becoming more self aware I realised these flaws and took actionable steps to overcome these obstacles.
Tip 1 – Set goals
To be productive you have to know what you are working towards in the first place. The best way to achieve maximum productivity is to have clear cut goals. Set big goals so even if you miss it you will have gone further than if you did not have a goal at all.
Tip 2 – Unplug
Turn off the TV. Yes I said it. You need a clear head to go to the next level so instead of watching netflix or hulu try using that time to work on your music or marketing strategy. We all get 168 hours in a week. If you work 40 hours a week at your job and you sleep a minimum of 8 hours a night for 7 days a week (8×7=56) you have 72 left to “work” on your craft.
Tip 3 – Focus on one Task at a Time
This one is a little harder. Especially if you have a smart phone. You could be doing a task such as promoting your music on instagram and then boom you get a notification. Human curiosity compels you to look at it. Then you spend 30 minutes mindlessly scrolling on instagram without even realizing it. Try turning all your app notifications off while your working on you can try a focus app to stay on task while your working.
Bonus – Make a list of the 3 most important things that you want to accomplish at the beginning of your day. Whether that be creating a new song, crafting content for the week or going on live. Make sure that you stick to the 3 most important things and try to get those done before jumping to something else.
We all want to get to a different level. If you have been feeling stuck try to change up your productivity habits. Hopefully you will find these 3 tips to be helpful to your on your journey. I want everybody to succeed and my goals is to provide actionable tips and solutions to help you get there.
Until Next Time,
