This episode is a brainstorm of sorts… On this edition of The 15 Minute Mixdown, I start off by asking a whole bunch of questions and work through some thoughts on getting into a mindset of thinking big.
Often times, we don’t check in with ourselves by asking questions in order to evaluate where we are on our journey, and whether or not we’re headed in the right direction. Because of this, we miss opportunities to think in a way that will put us on a course to creating significance and meaning.
Are you thinking of what you do in terms of the significance and impact you are creating? Or do you resolve that that kind of thinking is only for world leaders and global charities?
As a music creator, do you give yourself credit for having a significant power of influence, and a message that has impact?
Or do you limit yourself by thinking that the music you create is “just for fun” and doesn’t have too much real influence?
When you create music, do you focus on empowerment for yourself and the world, or do you only focus on what you will get out of it?
These are questions and thoughts that I work through on this episode of The Modern Recordist. Spend just a few minutes listening to another solo edition of The 15 Minute Mixdown, and check out the actionable takeaways towards the end.
