Welcome to episode 283 where today I talk about 3 powerful mindsets that you need to adopt to start improving faster while practicing less, and setting yourself up to win everytime. If you can start recognizing the less helpful mindsets that many of us musicians have, and then replacing them with these, it could be huge for you.
Listen to episode 283
Too many times, we musicians set ourselves up to fail.
We set ourselves up to fail so that we are not able to improve in our jazz playing, in our skills, in our comping, in our walking baselines, in our single note lines. Whatever it is that you are working on right now, we set ourselves up to fail because we have the wrong mindset.
We have the wrong mindset for how to actually improve and because we’ve adopted some of these bad mindsets for how we approach actually going about learning this music, we dramatically decrease the way that we improve and how we are able to improve.
So, in today’s episode, I’ll be going over 3 powerful mindsets that if you can adopt these mindsets, I can pretty much guarantee that you are going to start making more progress in your jazz playing while practicing even less.
In this episode:
1. Mindset 1: You can make huge progress with only the amount of practice time you have (without giving up anything)
2. Mindset 2: The simple stuff is the BIG stuff – you don’t need to practice harder and more things to improve
3. Mindset 3: Perfection is the enemy of progress – when we get stuck on perfecting one thing, we miss out on the other lessons waiting for us
