Remember Angus MacGyver?
I’ve just realized many of you may be too young for that!
Anyway, he was my childhood hero.
This is probably one of the best tips I can ever give to you.
On the long run, becoming successful is all about recognizing your strengths and concentrating on working through them.
Just like MacGyver.
I find this kind of positive approach works much better compared to dwelling about your weaknesses and trying to mend them or trying to learn something you’re not interested in.
Of course life ain’t black and white…
But by concentrating on your strengths and positive things as much as possible, you create “a vortex of good”.
It helps you gain momentum as a producer and stay motivated and push through hard times.
Have a think about what your strengths are as a music producer. Write them down.
For example, for me these would include….
- Thinking outside the box (maybe I learned that from watching MacGyver..)
- I work fast
- Good sense of rhythm
- Being antisocial (hey I still like people, only from a distance)
Once you have a list of your own, figure out some ways how you could better utilize each of those strengths in your music.
Let your strengths guide your way forward.
This may be a bold statement to make, but this is how I see it:
Consciously work through your strengths and you are putting yourself to advantage over most people in this game.
Because most people don’t really think about it and tend do things the hard way.
Plus it’ll be much more fun.
And what comes to your weaknesses…
Mac had his buddies Pete Thornton and Jack Dalton…
Why not join forces with someone and help each other out?
