How would your life be different if you could get your creative work finished? If your work is hiding in a drawer or a computer because you don’t think it’s good enough, my conversation with Mike Monday is essential listening.
Mike Monday, now an international DJ and producer, had a lousy job, no money and a computer full of unfinished tracks when he decided he’d had enough of a life scraping by, and set out to make music his life.
What followed was a journey into learning about focus and the power of habits to make things happen, which eventually took him all round the world making a living from what he most loved.
He now works with musicians and producers to get their music finished and out of the door, with a practical, powerful system to release their creativity and get things done. What I love about Mike’s approach is that it’s super-practical, no-nonsense, and focuses on one big thing: getting your work finished, so you can move onto the next thing.
We talk about how to break through the distractions and inner critic that stop us completing work, and how to put in place the rock-solid habits that make sure you’ll make progress, no matter where you are now.
If you’re leaving your creative work on the table because it’s never good enough to release, listen to our conversation now to start making some huge shifts in what you’re achieving.
Thanks for listening!
