In my last post, I shared why I wanted to learn the piano. There were many reasons – from continuous improvement and reliving the past to sharing something with people and another way to express myself. Learning the piano is a quest that will greatly add to my Life.
To succeed in a goal however you need more than good thoughts and a dream. You need a plan of Action Steps. Winging it gives you haphazard results and costs plenty of wasted time and effort.
I’m going to share a process I’ve used for my fitness clients and apply it to my goal of learning the piano.
Recently, my friends Zann and JS got married. I wanted to do something special to celebrate this, so I learnt to play a piano piece and then shared this with them on Facebook.
When I first thought of doing this, I was apprehensive, the Internet being what it is. At best, I knew it would be ignored by many highbrow connoisseurs as unworthy of their attention. At worst, it was an open invitation to the internet experts to lay into me, critiquing this or that, missing the point of my endeavor altogether.
It’s that time of the year again! That time when we dream up goals to meet and fantasize about successes to accomplish in the next 365 days, full of hope and motivation and confidence. It’s Day 1 of the new year, and many people will be rushing to get their new year resolutions in order, if they haven’t already.
This time of year there are a lot of touchy feely sentiments. It’s great that resolutions often come from positive places of love, friendship, peace and hope. Like they did last year. And the year before that.
This year however, I’m doing things differently, and challenging you to do the same.
The theme for 2015?
