Banjo as Caulk

Friday, February 9, 2007

What a day!  And it's all good.  I picked up two new jobs today--one's a new client who wants a fat study done, and the other is an existing client who wants me to help develop a database for him.  Good steady work and I want to land both jobs.  Two new calls means I also got my resume updated today and some work samples formatted.  A friend emailed me a link to the AfricaCam, and I've been watching that, too.  It's amazing to watch elephants and rhinos live in the wild. 
I still need to email an invoice out today--just a little one, but every little bit helps.
Once I got my work things squared around, I sat down to practice with the intent of recording a couple more songs to post before we headed out for some errands.  I didn't have a good practice day (I think I was just work-distracted) so I have nothing worth posting.  But I will keep a couple of the recordings for my personal reference.  They're handy to have for tracking my progress and working out little problems here and there.  I really need to figure out how to mentally change gears from work to play.  Practice--productive practice--takes focus, and I can really tell when I am not quite trained in to what I need to be doing.  What I notice most is the lack of being able to "hear" in advance what I should be doing.  My brain is simply attending to other matters.
Lessons learned today:  Keep practice time a priority, and schedule that time when I am able.  Practice isn't something that should fill in the cracks of my day.  Focus, focus, focus.  Every day is progress-- even with baby steps, I'll get there eventually.
