It is amazing to me that Seth Godin, who isn’t a musician and never writes specifically about being one, hits the nail on the head about so many things related to our profession. It just goes to show that succeeding in one field generally requires the exact same approach and execution as any other.
Here is a brilliant blog post by Godin on two different kinds of marathons. One has lots of people around. The other is all by ourselves.
Guess which one does more to get you to the top of whichever mountain you are aiming for in the music business?
And of course, it’s the more difficult of the two (which is good or everyone would get there.)
Also worth noting: As with most of Seth’s brilliant blog posts, it will take you literally 30 seconds to read!
