Practice What You Preach

Weekdays:

  • 8:00 AM - Work on technical guitar exercises for 40 minutes. Must finish before working.
  • 2:00 PM (after lunch) - Practice sight-reading for at least 25 minutes, no more than 45.
  • 6:00 PM - Learn German. (Don't even try to talk to me in it, I'm far from versed.)

Weekends:

  • Mornings (before I can leave home): Technical exercises, sight-reading, and German; each for at least 30 minutes.

Practice an instrument and study something else non-work related. I find this helps my ear, my nerves, my writing, my arranging... my me. Do it every day and make sure you do it every day.
