Shake Things Up

I'm prepping for a gig for the first time in a long time. It feels good, but it also feels burdensome. Why? Because I feel like I've been playing the same songs for way too long but I don't have the time to re-work my set.

But that is total bullshit.

The fact is, I DO have time. I just choose to use said time to sit on the couch and watch TV. This has been a recurring problem for me. That said, this week was particularly busy and I needed to just chill out last night.

Instead of doing my usual thing of beating myself up and ultimately not getting anything done, I've committed to learning 3 new songs for the show. Three is totally manageable.

So I'm shaking it up, but a little at a time. What are you doing to shake things up in your life? Comment below.
