To piggy back off of yesterday, execution is everything.
And it is time for me to recognize that I did not execute a project I set my sights on.
Let me rephrase that - I did not execute on a project I set my sights on within the time I had given myself to do so.
See I wanted to learn and make a video of me playing every Killers song in hopes that I could play with them at their show in Boston in three weeks. I have learned the songs. Of the 104 songs or so that they have, I can confidently play 75 or so. That's the easy part. I love learning songs and the Killers are my favorite band.
But the video part really threw me. It's so much more time consuming than I realized, and I thought I factored it all in well. Nope. I did not.
I'm bowing out of my Killers Quest in regards to the time limit. I admit defeat; I could not do it. Or rather, I did not do it.
But I will still carry on with the learning and sharing of what I've learned - both musically and otherwise. Starting with the otherwise:
- Give yourself more time.
- Stick to a schedule
- Keep it simple
It seems that everyone right now is talking about condensing 10 year plans to 2 years and while I agree with the premise of that, not everything needs to be rushed. A good idea is timeless. Sticking to a schedule allows you to execute on that good idea, keeping it simple makes it as easy as it will ever be, and you gotta have fun along the way,
