The endless hours of grueling, low-paid work typical of playing in a band is a lot like launching a business.
People who seem fearless have gained control over their thoughts and feelings toward their fears.
Start by breaking a vague goal into concrete steps.
People don't succeed because they know more but because they are confident they can learn more.
The necessity and challenge of paying the bills is great but work that we know is meaningless is another sort of poverty entirely.
Nobody has ever been as good at something the first time as they become the hundredth time. To start, you simply have to believe you can do it.
It starts with an idea and, unless you're willing to work hard and risk falling on your face, that's all it will ever be.
Don't give up on your idea before you figure out why it's not working.
Being your own boss requires the discipline to start and finish work, even when nobody else cares if you don't.
You may know exactly where you are today, but you don't, can't and shouldn't know where exactly you're headed tomorrow.
Here, the weird, different and strange elements you wouldn't think are important but that you might want to cultivate.
It's not easy, and it takes a lot of work -- but there are huge benefits that can come from doing it right.
It really is this simple. Do it.
