Hello readers! I recently read a blog entry by Lydia Ravenhall, stating the difficulties with staying focused on doing what she loves. Basically put, I felt like this had been a very isolating issue for me, especially looking around and seeing my friends who seemed “less fortunate” than I, moving forward with their lives. Don’t get me wrong though, I am not comparing their lives to mine, but my progress to my goals based on my capabilities.
What does this mean?
I will be starting back from step one into my music production, due to the major lack of motivation, and developing my skills and self discipline through the use of “pomodoro”.
“The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. The technique uses a timer to break down work into intervals traditionally 25 minutes in length, separated by short breaks.”
I first heard of this term late last year during a training called ”Learning how to learn” which I participated in. It seemed very interesting at the time but I haven’t really put it into use with my music.
During the next week, I will be using this technique and I will provide an update on how it goes. Maybe by then I’ll at least have an incomplete piece of music to share.
You can also join me on this quest. Share your progress and let us know how it goes.
