You Get Out What You Put In

January Artist Tips – advice for serious artists

As we enter 2017 many of us will have made new year’s resolutions to change or improve ourselves in some way. The ideas in this post are not exclusive to artists so whatever your discipline I would like to suggest that you focus on how much time you’re committing to your passion.

Are you a part timer or full timer? For the next 100 days (three months) start by dedicating a minimum of 20 hours each week to your craft. Once you have developed this habit of writing, recording, and performing on a regular basis, or the relevant areas for your field, try stepping it up to a full time commitment of at least 40 hours each week.

The importance of regularly practicing what you do is that once you build new skills no one can take them away from you. When you love what you do the results will speak for themselves and you will become unstoppable.

Remember – you get out what you put in!
