Wow, Toronto. We have a couple more days together before it’s back home to Calgary. Canadian Music Week has been amazing, our panel went great, I met so many artists and industry express their gratitude for the work I am doing with MusicFit Collective, artists’ health and wellness and everything in between and overall I have just really enjoyed all the new, lifelong relationships I have made.
Now, this week is a bit ironic in a sense. That’s right, I was invited out here to talk about the affect on creativity and performance from a physical and mental wellness standpoint. However, the conference itself isn’t set up to give attendees the ability to put into practice some of the insight I shared.
These 5 days are intense. Late nights catching bands, earlier mornings to attend conferences. Showing up for bed at 3am isn’t conducive to a 8am wake up, but alas – we hustle through it. I’m a part of it to. I’m no different. Right there with ’em all in the thick of it.
I do emphasize the importance of thinking progress over perfection. Choose the best route for you in the given situation, don’t shame yourself for what is the perfect choice as oftentimes it is unrealistic. If it’s temporary and you recognize that, take ease in knowing that you are accountable to your choices and clean the slate when given the chance.
We often get dealt an unfavourable hand, it’s all in how you choose to play the game.
