We all use it.
Some of us waste it. Some of us use it wisely.
And if you’re like me, you feel like you don’t have enough of it.
I feel like I don’t have time to be a musician.
Between my day job, family, friends, and extracurricular stuff, it’s hard to fit music into my awake time.
Like, sometimes I wish humans didn’t need sleep.
But you know what I realized? If I really love it, I’ll make time for music.
That’s the key to this whole thing.
If you love something enough, you’ll find the time in the day to do it.
If something matters enough…
…you’ll stay up late doing that something…
…you’ll join the 5 a.m. Club in order to do that something…
…you’ll spend lunch breaks and weekends doing that something as much as you can…
…you’ll make no excuses.
Filmmaker and YouTuber Casey Neistat makes the point that if you let obstacles become excuses, then you will fail.
It’s just an obstacle for you to overcome.
If you want to make music badly enough, you’ll find the time for it.
