The Crown Chronicles 005

Finding passion, mastering your craft, and sourcing ideas for creativity.

Hey there, Happy Tuesday!

Today, I want to get real about something fundamental – the importance of purpose and passion in our craft. It's not always smooth sailing in our work, is it? And when the storm hits, it's that deep-seated love for what we do that keeps us afloat.

When times get tough, it's passion that gives us strength. A strong sense of 'why' we're doing what we're doing can be a powerful motivator to push through challenging times.

Of course, no job comes without its downsides. But if you find something that captivates you, something that you genuinely love 80% of the time, you're in a fantastic place. Yes, life is a mix of highs and lows, but passion can turn those lows into valuable learning experiences.

So, my advice? Follow your curiosity. Dig deep into what interests you and become the best at what you do. Strive to wake up each day, eager and excited to take on the world.

Embrace your goals, follow your passions, and keep moving forward, especially during challenging times. With determination and a clear direction, even the most difficult obstacles can be overcome.

Feeling short on ideas?

Here's a quick tip: reach out to fellow producers or songwriters. Ask if they have unfinished demos or ideas that they're unsure about. Artist's block can hit any of us, and sometimes a fresh pair of ears can give these pieces a new life. You could bring a new angle to a track, and together, turn it into a finished masterpiece.

A simple collaboration could unlock a world of untapped potential, so don't hesitate to give it a go!
