Apparently, persistence is key. It’s even more important then talent according to this new book I am reading called “Grit” by Angela Duckworth.
It gets me thinking about my own life. The importance of practice as a musician. My practice time has suffered for a long time but that is slowly changing this month as I already have more practice time in then I did last month. I am keeping track of my time at the piano with a stopwatch and a little calendar to record my practice time on. The first few months of using said calendar I maybe locked in 2 hours of practice total for the month. That’s pretty bad for someone whose “passion is music”.
I’m going to make it though. I believe that I have some grit as the book calls it and I’m determined to finish this piece of music…hopefully by the end of the year.
Wish me luck!
