You’re about to enter a room full of strangers, where you will have exactly four minutes to tell a story that would convey who you really are. What’s your story?
I come from a medium sized family filled with a lot of procrastinators. Not all of them are, but there is a majority that are. I am one of them. I find it very hard to get motivated unless I just find something I’m really interested in attaining or achieving. If it happens to be something like that, I’ll work at it until I get it or forget it.
I picked up the guitar 17 years ago. At first, it was just kind of something to do. Then it got to be interesting, so I kept at it. I learned as much as possible… I joined some bands… I wrote music… About six years ago, I even started instructing people on how to do it. I got motivated. I hit lulls, but I kept at it the best I could. I learned that it was okay to take breaks at times. You don’t always want to do it. Sometimes it’s better to sit and read a book or watch a movie and give your mind a break.
I’m still quite the procrastinator. I don’t practice like I should. I wait until the last minute to set things up sometimes. Right now I’m even slacking on a project that I’m trying to help a friend on. I better get on that.
