Is Your Music Career Stagnant?

by Madalyn Sklar



It's that time of the year where we need to look back, evaluate, assess and look towards the New Year. 2010 is going to sparkle for you!

When it comes to promoting your music in bigger, better and broader ways it's all about having a plan in place. Take a moment and think about what your goals are for 2010? Think about where you want to be in the next 3 mos, 6 mos and year. If you map out a plan on paper with your thoughts, ideas and goals you will have a much better chance of achieving the success you want and deserve. Most people just don't do this so that puts you ahead of the game.

How hard is it to write out your thoughts, your ideas, your goals? No hard at all!

It Starts With A Plan

The biggest hurdle most people face is procrastinating. Don't be the majority. Be the minority who will take the path leading to success. Take a few minutes right now. Get out a sheet of paper and write down your thoughts for you and your music in 2010. It all starts with a plan.

Thoughts, Ideas, Goals and Dreams

I find it's best to get yourself a notebook and start writing down what you want on a regular basis. Don't worry about how outrageous it is. Get your thoughts on paper. Visualize it. Keep the notebook nearby and write in it whenever you get ideas. The key here is to formulate your ideas and dreams into achievable goals.

An Action Plan To Success

Once you get a clear picture of what you want to achieve, make an action plan of what you need to do to reach your goal. Keep it simple. Set deadlines. Close your eyes and visualize it.

I know this sounds simple and it really is. If you spend time doing this you will see real results. Escalate your music career to a new level. Don't let it stagnate.

I'm available if you are looking to schedule a phone call to discuss this further and work together to map out a plan for you and your music. I know that brainstorming can make a huge difference. Let's brainstorm together and create great strides for you. Details at http://www.indiemusiccoach.com/
