But the casual ones end up having casual talent and merely casual lives.
Looking back, my only Berklee classmates that got successful were the ones who were fiercely focused, determined, and undistractable.
Your enemy is distraction.
When you emerge in a few years, you can ask someone what you missed, and you’ll find it can be summed up in a few minutes.
This is your #1 most important challenge. If you master focus, you will be in control of your world. If you don’t, it will control you.
If you want to be above average, you must push yourself to do more than required.
Do not expect the teachers to teach you.
But nobody will teach you anything. You have to teach yourself.
Never think their heroes are better than yours.
Never underestimate the importance of making money making music.
Money is nothing more than neutral proof that you’re adding value to people’s lives.
