This content was created for Curtis Music Academy


All right. In this podcast we are talking about how to reach musical goals. So the way we will reach them is by, like I said in the last podcast, it’s by setting small goals. Those small goals let us know that we’re reaching the big goals. Well, and if we’re reaching the big goals, that means we’re inadvertently reaching the small goals. So either way, it’s important, all is important. It’s important that one, we have enough focus to reach one small goal. And if we can reach that one small goal, we can reach to the next. And so, you know, we’re talking about how to reach those musical goals in piano lessons in Tulsa. 


Let’s say your goal is to sing, and when a talent show at school, well, we can’t necessarily control whether you actually win or whether you don’t, but we can’t control how good you are at the end if you are better or the best that you can be in piano lessons in Tulsa. That is what matters. Winning is not necessarily a competition, but winning is a competition against yourself. And so if you can win the battle of yourself, if you can become the best you possible, you’re always winning. So we just have to redefine what winning is. But how do we reach those musical goals in piano lessons in Tulsa? So one way we’ll reach a goal is by setting a smaller goal. 


You know, for every big goal, there’s probably two to three little goals, and then you can break those two to three goals and two even smaller goals to kind of keep you on track. For instance, if we’re trying to lose, say a hundred pounds, say you weigh 300 pounds and you’re trying to lose 100 I’m trying to use a third, you know, a third of your body weight. Well, over the course of one year, say you want to lose a hundred pounds in one year, which is totally doable. I’ve seen people do it. Then you’ve got to kind of divide the year into a few smaller goals. You know, let’s say it’s January 1st you’re a new rep. new year’s resolution is to lose a hundred pounds by December or January 1st of the next year. 


You’ve got to break those 12 months into small three to four smaller goals. Let’s just say we do three smaller goals and then we’ll kind of break down even further. You know, say the first, you know, the, the, he break the year into three which is actually four months at a time. So four, eight and 12 so four months each, okay? So say, you know, in those four months you want to knock off 25 pounds, okay? So 25 pounds in the first four months, in the next four months, you want to do 30 pounds, okay? So 30 pounds, you’re at 55 pounds right there. And then the next four months you want to knock off 50 pounds or 45 pounds.


 That’s a hundred pounds right there. But I tell you this, I think what might be a better, better method would be, Hey, we start changing the way we eat for the force the first four months while doing some moderate some, you know, light to moderate exercise, okay? Because this will accelerate the process of weight loss, right? For the first four months, the next four months, you start upping up the intensity of your workouts. Maybe before you were just doing, you know, some walks, you know, a 30 minute walk here, you know, every day. And then sometimes you’ll do a, you know, a quick jog, you know, for like two minutes every day. And you did that for four months, man, you dropped 30 pounds. Just doing that. Okay, that’s the first four months. The next four months you kind of upped the intensity and you do a little bit more and you start jogging actually for 10 minutes every day. 


You know, so you jog for 10 minutes every day and man, you see a really big improvement and you’re running about a mile every two days. You run a half a mile a day. Know, that’s pretty awesome. So you know, you’ve in that first one, that next four months, you’ve actually lost 40 pounds. So you’re at 70 pounds now 70 and now you’re at the end of the four months, the last four months before January 1st of the following year. And you exceed that by losing 50 pounds. There you go. You’ve already lost, you know, 110 pounds. That’s pretty incredible. So I think that would be, you know, one of the examples to where, you know, smaller goals lead to big goals. But I also, I think I exemplified how important the method is when taking piano lessons in Tulsa. You know, in reaching your goals, you want to have a wise method, because not all methods are created equally. And, you know, method is really just your process by what you do it. 


And you can create a system based on that process. So, how we’re talking about how to reach your musical goals in piano lessons in Tulsa. So breaking things down, we’re talking about breaking things down and how it important it is to understand that in order to have a goal, you have to have smaller goals. In order to have smaller goals, you have to focus. And in order to have focus, you’ve got to be intentional. To be intentional, you’ve got to be disciplined. And at the end of the day, you’re disciplined determines your destiny. Your discipline determines your destination. And so if without discipline you cannot achieve the goals. And so there are many quotes on that. I’m sure you’ve heard of them, but just understand, you know, a wise man once told me that discipline or you know, with without discipline you can’t reach your destiny. 


Yeah. So that’s very good important. We’ve got to keep in mind, we’ve got to have enough focus when taking piano lessons in Tulsa. We’ve gotta have enough discipline to be intentional. We’ve got to be intentional enough to stay focused, stay focused enough to reach the small goals. And if we’ve got enough focus to reach the small goals, we can reach the bigger goals. And this is just the building project. This is the process by which we’ve got to understand so that we don’t get frustrated when we don’t reach our goals. We don’t get frustrated at ourselves or someone else because I will. Well we know why we didn’t reach the goal. I didn’t stay focused. I didn’t, I wasn’t very intentional with my time. 


You know, I lollygagged I procrastinated. This is stuff I do myself and I’ve done even you know, recently, but we’re all working progress and we’ve got to keep working. So let’s keep that in mind. We’ve got to be intentional. We’ve got gotta be, well first, what do we have to do? We have to be disciplined. We’ve gotta be intentional about taking piano lessons in Tulsa. Then we can be focused or we know what to focus on, you know, then we can be reached the small goals and then we can reach even bigger goals. If we can reach small goals, we can reach bigger goals. We have to understand, we have to think smaller. Sometimes to think bigger, we have to think, Oh well I just gotta reach one thing at a time. You know, how is a house built?


One brick at a time, one brick a day, you know, your house will get build very, very slowly. It’ll take probably a year, right? Or maybe 360 you only have 365 bricks. And if your house requires 10,000 bricks, you need to lay some bricks faster, you know, so you gotta have, you know, collapse your timeframe. Maybe you know, if you’re, if your goal is to, you know, be a superstar and five years, you can collapse the timeframe by focusing even more. But it takes, like I said, more focus, more diligence even, which is consistent effort over time in piano lessons in Tulsa. You’ve got to be, have more focus. You’ve got to have even more intentionality, more discipline. 


So all of this is very, very important so that we can stay on the path so that we can stay successful. And that is the concept of we’re actually dealing with is having, you know, having success. How do we have success in our music? How do we successfully reach musical goals? So we’re actually dealing with the concept of success here. What is success? Success as a concept? Success is, you know, just general. And to have success means that you’ve got, it insinuates that you have a goal that you’ve got to reach and to reach that you’ve got to have what? Smaller, smaller goals.
