big news

For the first time in 5+ years, I will be playing a live gig with a band.

If you don’t know my story, I played bass in an active and touring band for 5 years (give or take). But when I landed my first job, balancing my band commitments and my career became too tough to handle.

And, if I’m being honest, I haven’t played much music since.

Sure, there were a few times when I whipped out my bass to impress my lady. But I used to practice a good 4 hours a day, which I haven’t done in ages.

That changed last night. After work, I played through each song on our setlist for the gig at least once.

And you know what?

I had an absolute blast.

At first, I was kinda worried about adding another hour or so to my daily to-do list. But it seems like I forgot playing music is the antidote to brain fog.

Anyway, why do I bring this up?

Coupla reasons:

1. I never would’ve done this back when I had a job.

But having a business—and one that gives me freedom—makes it possible.

What have you loved to do but haven’t done it for a while? Go do it.

2. Things come back to you quickfast.

I jammed with my former drummer a couple of weeks ago. And although I wasn’t anywhere as good as I used to be, it came back quicker than I thought.

When I practiced yesterday, I improved even more.

3. Taking a break from something can reignite your love for it.

When I quit the band, I was totally burnt out.

I’d work 9-7 all week then have a 4-hour show Friday, Saturday, and sometimes Sunday.

Burnout is the real reason I didn’t pick up my bass in so long.

But taking a break ignited my love for it. And it’ll do the same for you.
