I have been thinking quite a bit lately about time....how much there is, how to manage it,and how to make the most of the time you have. Of course,and millions of words and hundreds of books have been written on the subject already, so I do not expect to blaze any new trains here. However, one idea that has wrapped around my brain in recent weeks ( as I have been reading and exploring the topic of deep work, time management and priorities) is this - The best possible way for me to be successful, or for any musician to be successful, productive and happy, would be to try to follow one rule - do only that which is possible to be done by you, and you alone. Delegate everything else.
So - what does that mean, exactly. I'm still working through that myself, but I have been asking myself this question each time I approach a project, and it has been clarifying on many occasions. Certainly something I'll continue to ponder over the coming days as weeks, as my career takes another interesting step forward
