1. Forget About Being A Perfectionist With Your Musical Skills

Doing alternatively means you throw away a great deal of time attempting to achieve greatness with just a single aspect of music career success.

Try This: Invest a bit of time on all areas in your career it (as shown in the video) and develop in all of them every single week, to ensure that small improvements add up to massive results as time goes on.
