In this edition of the Curtis music Academy podcast, we’re going to be talking about how you can reach your musical goals. I’m going to be teaching you how to reach your musical goals. And so without further ado, my name is Steven Cornetto. I’ve been a musician for 12 years and have loved every single minute of it. It has been a blast in music lessons Tulsa. I’ve had nothing but a great time playing the guitar my most of my life and by this time, Hey, it’ll have been 12 years this coming March, and so technically I’ve been playing guitar for 11 months, I mean 11 years and nine months. And so I am, I’m thrilled. I’ve got so much calculations to do as to have I hit the 10,000 hour Mark to becoming an expert at anything have I?

How can I be more intentional about becoming more skilled in a lesser amount of time? I’ve got so much in music lessons Tulsa. I’m excited about guys. How, how? What do I want to achieve in this next decade? We’re approaching a new decade, 2020 so by 2030 I’m going to be 34 you know, isn’t that crazy? By five years from now, I’m going to be 29 Tom is just going to be Thomas flying guys, Thomas flying and just two years I’m going to be 25 isn’t that crazy? That’s the time I thought I’d be getting married, but Hey, you know, we, we wander, you know, for years and sometimes and even as teens or adults in our, you know, let ladder teenage years and in our twenties you kind of, we kind of linger and kind of wonder what are we doing?

And then we regret kind of the time that we wasted wondering and, and walking around and LA LA land. But this year I’m 23 right now. I’m going to be 24 March of next year. And man, I am fired up. I’m in, I’m going to be S I’m intense right now and I’m, I’m so excited for these next, this next decade. I’m going to be 33 my next decade, 30 almost turning 34. And so, man, it’s going to be an incredible year, guys. It’s going to be incredible December. It’s going to be incredible. An incredible next decade. I’m definitely gonna have 20, 20 vision. I have 20, 20 vision. Once I really look down, look at what all I want to achieve and all of that I want to do and accomplish and, and places I want to experience in this 10 years, man, I want to, I want to travel the world and go to Europe and I want to go to Italy and France and Japan and China and you know, Australia and I want to, I want to do all these things.

You know, I want to, I want to go to, you know, Italy, France. I want to take my wife to Capri, Italy, you know, it takes money, you know, and so I have to think about how much money do I want, how much we want to do, I need, how much do I want to come in and residually and, and I would encourage you to do the same. So, without further ado, we’re talking about how to reach your musical goals in music lessons Tulsa. I’d say my first point for you guys is going to be about having patience, being patient with yourself. My second point is going to be breaking big goals down into smaller goals. And then thirdly, how you can celebrate the little wins and how important that will be to our success in music lessons Tulsa. And so if you don’t know how to celebrate little wins, if you don’t know how to break big goals down into small goals, if you don’t know how to be patient in music lessons Tulsa, then you really can’t be successful, I think is really what it comes down to.

You can’t be successful if you can’t do a few of these characteristics that I’m going to go into that really cultivates success. And success is a state of being. It’s, it’s an achievement. It is. It’s kind of a general term as in, you know, success isn’t necessarily anything in particular. It’s kind of a, an experience. It’s a, it’s a as describe. It’s, you know, a verb or a, an adjective in that you’ve, you’ve experienced a success in music lessons Tulsa. I think success is, is an experience. An experience is something that’s happening. It’s not happened. A, I th you know what, that’s a lie. I think it can be both. It’s an experience and it’s something that happened. It’s a, it’s a Mark on the ground to stake in the ground. It’s a, it’s a milestone.

It’s, it’s a, it’s a memory also as an experience, you know, you will experience things and we have memories of them. We, we, we experienced success. And so, without further ado, you know, we’re talking about how to reach your musical goals. My first goal is be patient with yourself. You know, it’s important to not think that you’re going to be this super, you know, you’re just going to pick up everything incredibly fast. I think there are principles to applying and picking things up quickly and there are people who naturally pick up things quickly. I honestly think that, I’d probably be one of those people in that, you know, ever since I was a kid, you know, I picked up a guitar and just a matter of months I was, you know, from when I was 12 and I started playing guitar.

When I turned 13, I became a youth worship leader. You know, the only one who played guitar really, you know, so like, and it just a year or less, you know, and that year it was December and three months later, you know, I turned 13 and I’d only been planned for 30 months. But after that I, you know, I became the youth worship leader when I was 13 and so on. And here we are. So be patient with yourself, you know, give yourself plenty of time to execute the goals needed in music lessons Tulsa. Execute the, the, the goals, the, the little wins. You know, the little things, if you’re not patient with yourselves, then you can’t really achieve anything. You know, my, my father-in-law says that he who has patience can achieve anything.

Nothing is impossible for the person who is willing to be patient for it. I think that’s, that’s a pretty true statement. It’s true or the not true, that’s for sure. And it’s important that, you know, we, we understand that, you know, in order to achieve something, we don’t know what that’s going to necessarily entail in music lessons Tulsa. And so we’ve gotta be kind of just open to the, the idea that many things are going to happen that we don’t expect to happen. And if we do that without patients, then we won’t be as flexible as we need to be in order to, you know, adjust with the terrain and to adjust with the journey. And so, being patient is key. Second point is breaking big goals into small goals in music lessons Tulsa.

This is one of the ways you can reach your musical goals. First thing first in that you’re being patient. And then really second is taking your, the, the, the end goal. What is, what is this all for the Y, you know, and breaking it down into smaller goals. A great way to do this and to visualize this is take a big goal that you have for the year. A one year goal. What do you want to achieve at the end of the one year goal? Okay, well God has given us 12 months. We broken it down into 12 months. Sorry. God’s given us time. We’ve broken it down and monetized life into a series of 12 months that equal one year and seven days that equal one week and four weeks, that equals one month. And so break it down.

You know, at the end of this year I want to have achieved a few financial things. And, and these are the six areas you’ll want to achieve. Things in your faith, your finances, your friendships, your future or your fun and your, your fitness, you know, so family or really, first is faith, family, finances, friendships, family or fitness and fun. Those are the six areas of goals that you’ll need to have. And so, break down your big goal. You know, are you wanting to, with your fun, you know, learn an instrument well enough to play at a gig and be paid for it. Okay. Break it down into 12 months and then into four weeks and then what does that one week tell you?

And then after that one week, if you need to be playing for, you know, seven, seven hours a week, break it down into five or six days, not all seven. And you end up with about 30 minutes a day, you know, break the time down. Lastly, celebrating the little wins. If we don’t celebrate the little wins along the way, we will not be ready for the big one because we’ll never get there. So that’s how important it is to celebrate the little wins. So without further ado, you know, this is how you can reach your musical goals, is to be patient with yourself, breaking big goals down into smaller pieces or smaller goals, achievable goals. And then lastly, it’s so, so, so important to celebrate the little wins. Because if you don’t, we’ll never celebrate the big wins. That’s how you can do it.
