Humankind behaviour isn’t linear, logical or or even justifiable at times. That doesn’t matter. I’m here today to dispel the rumour that you need to be perfect in order to achieve what you want.
Having just come off a solid rehearsal myself (in my books, anyways…), eating junk and skipping meals more often than usual these last two weeks and having the most irregular sleeping habits as a direct result, I’m living proof: progress, not perfection.
As a musician myself I know first hand that we strive to be perfect at everything. I’m from the camp that if you’re not having the occasional slip in your tunes, you’re not trying hard enough. Playing it safe in music is no different than in sport. You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take, as the Great One once said. Even though I played my parts pretty well tonight, not everyone was on their game. Next rehearsal I might be off mine. That’s okay. Make mental notes and work at it. It’s not a mistake, it’s an opportunity it improve.
As for diet, a very popular topic amongst challenges for colleges in the music industry – there’s a strong correlation to making small adjustments in order to see big, long term success. Start with ensuring one meal each day has a ton of vegetables. Or if the routine is jam packed and you’re always on the go, check this link out and get in touch with me. I can help you start to eat healthier! Holistic nutrition in a much more realistic sense. Juice Plus+. I’m now a certified representative, and from my days as a full time, competitive speed skater I can tell you first hand, you’ll feel amazing when you start with these blends! ======> www.mschwartz.canada.juiceplus.com
Here’s another easy first step. Start each day with a tall glass of water with freshly squeezed lemon first thing in the morning. You’ll feel a new sense of vitality and kickstart your day!

That’s my bit on music, nutrition and progress over perfection. Just understand input often equals output. If beer and Cheetos, Doritos or Rold Gold pretzels is the performance fuel, don’t expect to be running very well let alone turning over before too long.
You do have the power to change.
