Good Days and Bad Days

Sitting down for my minimum 30 minute songwriting slot this morning, I realised with a little prompt from a random word generator for inspiration that the songs were flowing out of me. Yesterday was quite a different story, only getting out a couple lines that I liked, and not finding the rest of the lyrics for the songs that I knew were rolling around inside me somewhere.

We all have both good and bad days (some have more good or bad days than others), and of course a large part of this is perception, but also a large part of what we consider a good or bad day comes down to confidence in what we’re doing.┬áConfidence in turn can be increased by getting better at what you happen to spend your time on.

I know that by writing every day, I’ll get better at it, and will find new tricks and prompts along the way that work for me, and it’s the same for the playing the guitar and clothing design. I can’t go back and “re-invest” lost time on what I’m now interested in, but I can make the most of now!

What are you working on increasing your confidence in?

Another big day working from sun-up til sun-down! Although thankfully not as late as the night before…

It’s something I’ve just always had the capacity to do, work long hours. As long as I have confidence in what I’m happy to keep chipping away at what I’m doing until it’s done. It’s where I don’t have confidence in what I’m doing that it all falls apart and my anxiety kicks in… It’s useful, but only in combination with having something productive to do!

I feel like a lot of people struggle with this confidence and and anxiety issue… competence breeds confidence, and the best way to be competent is to keep doing what you’re doing until you’re good at it, or you’ve achieved what you set out to do!

I hope you’re smashing your day today!
