What's your mindset?

I'm busy writing a book. Well let's say I just got busy. I've had the book idea for awhile but had a mindset problem. I just couldn't get myself to work on a book while at my desk. When I'm working in my office I'm busy developing web sites, working on GoGirlsMusic.com and consulting musicians. The last thing I think about is writing. So it gets put off.

Good news... I got myself a new laptop this week! My previous one is very old and I got so used to not having one. Now I'm spending time everyday writing my book. It's so easy with the laptop. I can leisure around the house with it. It's so much easier than being tied down to a desk! I feel empowered. I sit on the sofa and type away.

So what is your mindset? And what can you do to either change it or like I did, accommodate it?

Rock on,

I know that I've gotten away from practicing as often as I should because it's up and down the steps with the gear all the time. I get everything set-up and then I have to tear it down to go play a gig. I'm starting to rethink my scheduling of shows so that they happen more at one time instead of willy-nilly all over the calendar. Not sure that it's going to work, but I'm starting to get excited about having a period of time to work on things instead a few hours a week.
